British Summertime has...

...resumed.


Returning to work yesterday wasn't too bad - the trains were less than full and there weren't the crowds in and around Stratford that there had been before the Olympics started.

There was a quietness to everything - almost like kids creeping around the house trying not to make a noise because a parent has a hangover...

Even the office was fairly quiet as many staff will not return until after the Paralympics because they have their chairs and other 'specialist' equipment set up in other locations.

I did return to some 'issues' that had arisen but on the whole there wasn't anything too bad. How is it that no matter how long you have off work - one day back and it feels like you've never been away (and I don't mean that in a good way **grumpy face**).

The rain held off until the afternoon and I was lucky enough to get home between some fairly heavy showers and boy did it come down last night. Oh and guess what...the forecast is for more to come.

Our good old British weather seems to be throwing a hissy-fit because the 'party' is over. Let's hope Mother Nature is back to her more amenable self by the time the Paralympics kick-off on the 29th.............................
