Had to go to a meeting in London yesterday.  Overheard a conversation between two women at the meeting who obviously both lived in London – they were discussing how they had to force themselves to DO SOMETHING in the evenings, else it felt like they just got up, went to work, came home, had something to eat, went to bed. 

Of those of us who had travelled from other parts of the country, there were various stories of cancelled and late trains, and tube lines closed…

In the paper there was an article about average commuting times falling (average commute is 47 mins), but apparently commuting still costs £337m of working time every day.

But perhaps the cost to one’s sanity and quality of life is far greater.
