Today's annoying public transport person: the woman getting off the train at Moorgate in front of me who spotted a discarded hat on a seat, stopped to pick it up and consider it, then discarded it and continued in a slow zig-zag in front of me to the platform exit towards the Northern Line, where she stopped dead.

This week's Radio 4 book of the week is Family Britain. Listening to it every night has reminded me that I've had its predecessor, Austerity Britain glowering fatly at me from a bookshelf for probably somewhere over a year now so I stuck it in my coat pocket - I like that at this time of year I can wear my big coat with its capacious pockets - and I've been reading it on the train for the last couple of days. It's v good so far but man, it's disspritingly huge. I have little hope that I'll ever read anything else.
