Don't use the M1 until 2012
It used to only take 1hr 20 mins between NW London and Cov. Literally that time door to door. I sometimes pondered if it was possible to do that journey in 1hr??? The London-Cov 1-hour Challenge, that would be amazing. Faster than the commute from Leam to campus sometimes!
But I'm moving away from Stanmore in NW London soon into N1. So in future I'll have to contend with city traffic. And to make matters worse. They're now adding a "Pool car" lane along the whole of the M1, between now and 2011. The road works extended todays journey by about 20 mins. So basically I'll never be able to attempt that challenge… ever!
So now I'm up at Warwick;, had a nice coffee and chat/catch-up session with Pia. Found John Baillie exactly where I left him in F211 two weeks ago! (Some people are working hard). Found that other people have been struggling with Laser Rate Equations and managed to finally start on lab report. Been a good day.
