Sorry to have been 'away'

Life is good

This week has been to some extent the 'week from hell' because I've been on the road since Monday through till Thursday evening.

Monday in Nottingham
Tuesday in Birmingham
Wednesday in Middlesbrough
Thursday in Cwmbran, Wales

A total of approximately 1000 miles – all by train - and not one late train in 20 connections – brilliant service - thank you.

Hence my apologies for lack of posting on Simplicity Blog this week – it has been a wee bit tricky to find the time whilst also carrying a pretty annoying and painful gum infection since Monday too. So sleep has been pretty important.

I will try to get the wires buzzing again in the next few days with some reflections about some of the stuff I’ve been doing.

20 connections, 1000 miles, and no late departures? Wow - that's almost too good to believe...

Hi Dan - Actually one connection of the 20 was ten minutes late but that was not really worth mentioning as it made no difference to my schedule. I must say that in the last 3 years I have been a regular rail traveller - hundreds of journeys and thousands of miles and my experience as a customer has been superb. I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I have had a significant delay. Virgin Trains - part of the Richard Branson Virgin Empire is the main provider in my region and I can only speak as I find – they are brilliant!
