Another Day in the Life...

...of Ward's! So where had we got to? Oh yes, we weren't really discussing Catering Equipment or commercial refrigeration were we? No we were more listening to me blather on about my few days off. So on Friday morning we upped and offed to London. I drove, know why? Cos I have never driven in London and I wanted to experience it. So we GPS'd what I can only assume is quite a long route up the A3 and through Tooting or something into Surrey Quays area and disembarked at my other half's Dad's London pad. We unpacked and then went for an explore. This didn't reveal an awful lot apart from Canada Water tube station and some nice views of Canary Wharf. Then we popped into Tesco for bread and milk and the like. DVD, bed. The next day I muched toast and had a splendid few minutes poring over guide books the A to Z and the Tube Map. I plotted our routes for the day to the last detail, we packed baby Nathan into his pram / car seat hingumy and gave Xtina stern warnings about getting too far from either her mother or myself and set off for Canada Water tube station. We arrived to find a man holding the shutters closed, he told us the Jubilee line was closed from Green Park to Stratford. And of course the East London line has been closed for Aeons. So all my planning was for nothing. We jumped on a bus and crossed our fingers...
