Day 12: Bullet point your whole day

  • Woke up around 6:30

  • Put running kit on and met Claudia by the canal to do a short tempo run to start the day

  • Walked back to the flat with Claudia, who had to pick up her laptop charger

  • Showered and got ready for work

  • Ate an apple and grabbed lunch (leftover eggplant parmigiana) and put my work bag together

  • Left the flat and walked to the bus station, which I took Kings Cross / St. Pancras, where I got the Thames Link to East Croydon

  • Listened to Spotify and read Girl On the Train while on the train (ironic, right?)

  • Arrived at East Croydon station and walked to my client office, where I gave my ID to security and was escorted in

  • Settled into a desk and began working for the day, during which I had a few calls and a couple of meetings

  • Left the client office around 17:15 and walked to the train station to catch the train to Victoria Station because I was meeting my team

  • Met my team at Munich Cricket Club for leaving drinks for Joe, one of the guys on the team who is leaving the project and switching to a different practice within EY

  • Had a glass of Pinot Grigio and chatted with the team and met some folks I hadn’t met before

  • Left Munich Cricket Club at 18:45 to walk to The Other Palace to see a play that EY is supporting called Soldier On, which is put on by a theatre company for military veterans (it was absolutely wonderful, by the way)

  • Left The Other Palace after the show was over and walked with Kate to Victoria Station, where we jumped on the Victoria Line

  • Took the Victoria Line to the Highbury & Islington stop, where I switched to the Overground and took that one stop which dropped me off right behind my flat

  • Walked home and then got into the flat, where I immediately changed into pyjamas (it was around 22:30 by this point)

  • Ate some chicken curry salad as I hadn’t eaten dinner, and made myself some Lemsip because I’m coming down with a cold

  • Logged into my laptop to write my daily blog entry and tada! here we are
