The drive down to Heathrow area from North Shropshire was a breeze today. I reached the office by 8.00AM. No better illustration that many many people have taken at least another day off if not the rest of the week.
On the radio, they said around 5m people are expected to call in sick today following over indulgence on new-year's eve.
Also on the news was that engineering works on the west-coast train line has over run again (now 3 days) so basically no services of any great merit. I had considered going by train today but decided against in on the grounds that a) traffic would probably be light and b) trains would probably have engineering works delays or simply be in the wrong place.
Of course, I might regret this on Friday when I have to drive back home.
