What was meant to be a lovely weekend away, visiting my brother at Keele University has turned into a mini-disaster. This morning we awoke to find the entire campus covered in inches of snow. Buses and taxi services to and from the University have been cancelled. The train station is a 20 minute drive away, on a good day! Walking is out of the question. I have to be at work by 9 am tomorrow morning, which wouldn’t be difficult to achieve if I didn’t work 60 miles away from Keele. I am aiming to catch an early morning train, if the taxi service is back on but then I have the small problem of what to wear to work. I packed for a weekend of student merriment and mayhem and I certainly looked the part all weekend. Should I make it work tomorrow I have the small problem of explaining to my boss why I look like I slept in a bus shelter.
That aside, the white blanket all over campus looks beautiful. I have had great fun laughing at people falling over. So far I have successfully avoided being ‘taken out’ by one of the stray snowballs. Best of all though is that the Student Bar is still acessible and their prices are possibly the lowest in the country.
Oh, and please forgive the typos, I am using a non-English keyboard. I am still having great difficulty locating most of the punctuation marks.
