Grinding to a halt.

Posted by Jeni in Ad Infinitum | 16 February 2010

Battersea Bridge is taking the brunt of the traffic. Albert bridge is closed and my taxi driver, this evening, told me that it cost 39.50 to get from Kensington to Leicester Square, he feels sorry for his fares!

Miles of soggy commuters chewing their nails as our London streets are being dug up and re-filled for 2012.

B couldn't get to Lancaster Gate as the Embankment was 'carnage' according to my house guest who spent two and a half hours trying to get home from Greenford.

My massoose couldn't get to me as she was sitting on the 170 stationary at Victoria. At one stage the bus driver turned the ignition off as the traffic lights changed from red to amber to green so many times he just gave in.

The old git just made it to the opening of 'The Three sisters' having been stuck in Fulham for longer than he should have.

What's going on?

The country is grinding to a halt and the freezing rain drops aren't helping.

I need another slice of bread and butter and a good slug of hot milk to calm my nerves.

Please have a peaceful night and if you are travelling anywhere God Speed.

Hi Jeni

Can you do everything in your power to get Ian McShane on your show to talk about his new film with your old pal John Hurt, Ray Winstone and Joanne Whalley? Seeing him is good but hearing that voice would be ace! Film's called 44 Inch Chest, out now in the States.
Yummyyum McShane - go on, you owe yourself a favour, he's even a (little) bit taller than your fine self. Still gorgeous at nearly 70 too...
