today is half and hour late

i woke up at 6.30 this morning rather than 6am, so had to run out the door almost as soon as i was awake (vital duties duly dutied). therefore i’ve lost 30 minutes of today and have been running to catch up.
as if to serve me right, my train was delayed 15 minutes on route, thus increasing total delays to 45 minutes.
during the 15 minutes stoppage i looked out of the window and watched this squirrel eating an acorn. he hopped right up next to the train, had a nibble then jumped to another rail etc. i looked around the carriage to catch a fellow commuter’s eye so we could share the moment, but everyone was either asleep or reading their papers.
as a result of the site of the squirrel i now have the White Stripes song Little Acorns in my mind. which makes a change from You Make Me Feel Like Dancing by Leo Sayer which i have had stuck in my mind for the last 7 or 8 years.
