London Day #5

Went out to a client at Elstree - home of the film (fill-um) studios which do EastEnders and the Who Wants to be a Millionaire, amongst other things. Beautiful day, again - this is supposed to be winter, ferchrissake. Got there almost an hour early (deep tube Victoria to Kings Cross, then ThamesLink to Elstree/Borehamwood) and allowed far too much time for what turned out to be a very slick journey. Breakfast in a small snack bar.
Client visit was unusual - it's the first time ever that I'm gone into a server room, had a monitor turned on, and seen it instantly burn up, complete with smoke.
Got back early (slick trains, again) so tried to get out to Hammersmith bus station and hop the earlier bus to see Trevor and Jane at Wincanton. No joy - awful traffic. So we waited around for two hours at the bus station, and did the bus journey in the dark, as we had expected.
T and J very pleased to see us, and their two dogs ditto.
