Anything?

For me the final breaking of any need to commute to London.

I'm thinking hard and I'm not sure there is anything I really miss about lockdown. I do enjoy not travelling so much, but at the same time I also enjoy my occasional commutes into London. I enjoy not spending a large part of my life in hotel rooms, but at the same time really quite enjoy the odd night in a hotel now.

In the first lock down, my wife and I would cycle the largely empty roads around our house. Whilst we never went too far away, we could easily do 20/25 miles in late pm/early evening.

Working at home now feels more like cheating so I'm less inclined to stop at 4pm for a cycle. (Ridiculous as it's my company and I know that if I skive an hour or two I'll work it later and in any event none of my staff are going to complain).
