Snow joke. Commuting is so 2008!

This time last year I would have had to trundle into London, scarf donned, gloves firmly in place and moaning well and truly underway. In fact, in February I did have to and my oh my was it horrific.

If today was anything like earlier this year there would be disruption everywhere, buses spinning out of control with roads closed and trains delayed.

After spending an additional half an hour getting into the office, the heating wouldn’t be on and everybody would be shivering over a warm cup of cocoa.

Much worse and people would be stranded out on train lines or halfway between home and work.

That's what happens when it snows in London.

OK so this year it may not be that bad... or is it?

In fact, just a tiny dusting of snow has once again caused hours of lost time, potentially fatal crashes and all because we have to get to the office to work.

Not me. Not this year.

This year, working for Glasscubes I’m able to do all of my chores, design work, writing and communicating – and even work with my colleagues wherever they may be - from home. It’s a great year, and long may the snow continue because I’m more productive and positive as I know that my lunch is not a cold walk away and I know that a warm mug of coffee is not going to cost me £3.50 from Starbucks.

Some people like to say that they know which side their bread is buttered... but for me, I’m happy as a pig in... well... snow!

Happy commuting everyone !
