I’ve scheduled this post to appear here at 8.30 on Monday morning.
All being well, IJ will be on her way to school and joining her friends in the playground. I’ll be somewhere on the Underground heading into Central London for the first day of my new job.
But that’s the thing with scheduled posts. You write them in advance and select the time they’ll be published. If, between writing this and the time it appears on my blog, something alarming, unexpected or vaguely interesting happens, it won’t appear here.
So it could be the case that something incredibly dramatic has happened during the last 24 hours.
I could have dined out with the ‘boys’ from Take That last night after meeting them on my train journey south. We could have struck up a conversation when I accidentally spilt coffee on my jacket and they offered me one of theirs. We could have met later in the evening when I was returning said jacket. They could have invited me to join their table and we then bonded over 80s nostalgia.
It is also possible that after our evening they arranged for their driver to collect me to take me to work this morning.
So, in fact, I might not be on the Underground right now at all.
Or it could simply be that IJ headed off to school and I took the tube to work. But that would be a dull, un-engaging and incredibly short blog post.
And who wants that on a Monday morning?
Have a great week!
