Since I was less rackety today, I headed off for work. Got off the bus at Hursley and found a small crowd waiting on the other side of the road waiting to catch the bus back. A colleague intercepted me before I went into work, and told me the site was closed because of a pipe leak. On further explanation the pipe leak meant there was no running water on site i.e. no taps, toilets or coffee machines - the latter possibly being the biggest misfortune.
The return bus turned up in 5 minutes and I'm back at home, but only starting work half-an-hour later, and I did come up with a small brainwave on how to handle a particular problem on the bus, so not a completely wasted journey.
