I had a 08:30 hygienist appointment in Kings Cross this morning so caught he 7:11 train. I usually get the 8:26. As we were approaching Sevenoaks an announcement was made that the train was going to be delayed and also diverted due to someone being hit by a train. I had nothing else to do but go into work early. Urgh.
I ended up having to cancel my appointment which cost me an additional £20. Even worse, the next appointment they had available was even earlier 08:00 on Monday.
I least I got to say hello to Saffie the station cat on the way in.

I was disappointed with my run tracking app this morning, it stopped tracking me after about 2km. Very annoying as that's one of the things I like. The stats. Anyway, it was nice to get out, here are some photos.

I know it's fairly obvious to those that know me but just in case you don't, I really like spreadsheets.
Here's my holiday one. It goes all the way back to 2009.
I love pivot tables even more!
Looks like I have most of my holidays in November although I think that is skewed somewhat by my honeymoon back in 2011.

My first run in a little while. I've been setting my alarm an hour early each morning for over a week now, but have finally gotten up to go on the run. I enjoy it when i'm out and about it's just the 1 minute of thinking time that puts me off. Will see if I get up again tomorrow. 10k steps already though.

I look surprisingly happy after the first mile.
A lovely day

My 3 legged race ties have arrived. The Tonbridge Jamboree will be amazing.
I think that's about all i'm buying for the event.
So far I have...
- 3 legged race ties
- Tug of war rope
- A stopwatch
- A big measuring tape
- A couple of whistles
We already have wellies, a rounders bat and ball, and already have a set of boules. I think that will do.
Had some rugby friends over on Saturday morning to watch the 3rd Lions game. I've got a fair few more coming in about 3 weeks for the final test so wanted to make sure that it works okay. And it did. Excellent. I'll be doing a breakfast bbq too so will be quite fun.
We only had fruit juice on Saturday, the next one will be boozy. And will be a bit of a Leo Sayer. Tonbridge Summer beer festival is on at the rugby club later that day so we will be smashed by lunch.
My Manbag's strap broke a couple of weeks ago so have had to carry my tablet and bits in to work with my hands. It gets a bit tricky when you have a hot cup of tea, a tablet and an umbrella and then attempt to go through the ticket barriers at the train station.
Anyway, April suggested I get the Timpsons guy to take a look and he reattached it with some bolts. I got him to put some extra ones in too and it looks pretty good.
