Morning Time on Northern Line

Not to brag, but I've somehow managed to get this far in my adult life without having to deal with an awful commute. I can't say it is entirely planned, but I seem to end up living within easy walking or cycling distance to work, the idea of spending hours in a traffic jam or on buses every day really does not appeal. I'll take the wind and the rain any day! Chilly winter mornings wake me up and make me feel slightly more alive, and I have the added bonus of a rather scenic route, complete with good views and photogenic trees, and sometimes even friendly cows! Can't imagine why, but Bath does not feel like a real city...

Bright Spots

I seem to be filled with a certain inertia when it comes to blogpost writing these days. I can't decide whether to keep plodding along with this, talking to just the few of you who stop by, or whether to try something new. The dying days of my PhD studies are taking up plenty of brain-space at the moment too. When I started blogging I certainly never had any aspirations to be A Famous Blogger, but I'm not sure what my motivation is any more. Anyone else out there blogging to no one for no particular reason?! Perhaps I just need some more fun in my life so I feel like I actually have something to talk about...

Well, for now, I shall leave you with some pretty pictures from my recent visit to the beautiful Kew Gardens in London. If you're in the big smoke between Feb 7th and March 6th get yourself there for the Orchid festival, which will be full of gorgeous colour to distract from the dreary grey winter outside (and look out for the resident iguanas too!).

And we'll see if I manage to post more than once in February!
