Catching up!

I remember one of my English teachers at School telling me "The road to hell is paved with good intentions" - I was full of good intentions to keep up with Shimelle Laine's "Blogging for Scrapbookers" class but things have gotten away from me again. A bit of excitement for me (a very big excitement to me anyway!)on friday sort of pushed everything else out of the way - more will be revealed on thursday - stay tuned :)

Prompt 4 is about blogging/scrapping something ordinary but maybe with a little twist -so here goes.....
The underground or the tube - whatever you want to call it.
I've been living in or around London for nearly 14 years and still can't get my head around how some people behave. We don't have an underground system like London's in Scotland - ok we have the underground in Glasgow - the clockwork orange but it's basically a very short circular route so I wasn't really prepared for all the different lines here. When I first moved to London I tried to avoid any journeys that involved changing lines - was so scared I'd get lost! After a while I got braver and as long as I could work out my route before hand it wasn't at problem. But what I still can't get my head around is why do people feel the need to squeeeeeze into already packed carriages when there's another tube arriving in 2 minutes - and if that ones packed theres usually another one a minute after that! I'll only squeeze in if I'm running late and can't afford to take the chance in waiting. It may not be the most pleasant mode of transport but it is quick and frequent - not like Kilbarchan buses that only run once an hour after 18:00pm and every 2 hours on a sunday.
