On the way to the gym (to go for today’s hat-trick of tedious anecdotes) at about 7.20 in the morning, I pass three pubs which are open (is this unusual? It seems so to me), and which almost always have folk drinking in them. I also pass two sandwich shops which always smell of bacon rolls. (Certainly not unusual.) So every time I go to the gym, as you might imagine, I really really really ask myself WHY LORD WHY??? Funnily enough, on the way back (at least when I’m working from home, and not catching the train to Glasgow), this never seems to be a problem.
