Sometime, about a year ago, I suddenly started hating the tube. 2 minutes at a signal and I am freaking out.

To take my mind off things I begun writing lists, each inspired by my journey on the underground.

Better in theory than Practise

  • Wearing killer heels to important events.
  • Ice-cream sodas.
  • 3rd glass of wine at lunch.
  • Rearranging your bookshelf or wardrobe. There is always a point half way through when you feel hot, cross and wish you hadn't done it.
  • Travelling a rush hour with large objects.
  • Shaving your arms. Every teenage girl has tried it.
  • Whit nail varnish.
  • Pulling an all nighter for anything.
  • Cutting your dolls hair. It never grows back.
  • Trying to read Shantaram.
  • Playing Trivail Pursuit stoned.
  • Asking 'can i do anything to help' just to be polite. Half an hour later you are still peeling potatoes.
  • Oxford street on a saturday. You think 'it won't be that bad'. So does everybody else.
  • Spending more than 4 days with your family.
  • Trying a new recipe at a dinner party.
  • Camping.
  • Food in meetings.
  • Not getting dressed all day. By 4 o'clock you feel rotten.
  • Sambucca.
  • Pulling a sicky. The guilt means you don't actually enjoy the day.
