I was trundling along the field with a wheelbarrow just now, admitting to myself that I’m starting work a bit late today (even though it’s a Saturday). And I thought, at least I’m not commuting any more (so I’d already saved a potential two hours of travelling). Which led me to wondering how much travelling time I’ve saved by moving to France in August 2007.

So I worked it out: 293 weeks, or 5,860 hours, or 244 days – and that’s assuming no delays or cancellations.

I’m now tempted to start work a little bit late tomorrow, too (even though it’s a Sunday).
