    Mrs and son have been away for the last month, visiting family abroad.
    I haven't needed to take the bins out once!

    Agreed. Although, I think you are being overly kind. Most don't ever try to master it.
    I'm not totally against running lights, I don't do it personally, when it's not a pedestrian crossing and crossroad, or if it's a left turn. Some approaches on the continent make sense as well. It's the slow paced confusion caused by everyone having their own ideas.

    Not ignoring murder vehicles, I'm adding my frustration about all the RLJing by bicyclists.
    It is really frustrating mainly because they all have varying ideas of what is an acceptable approach to blowing the lights. The most annoying, other than endangering peds by not slowing down, are the ones who mount the pavement to cruise through the lights, as if this somehow is better?! I just don't get it.

    Cars are the real problem, I know.

    Started last week going to the office twice a week. It was my decision and I'm going to adjust how many days and what days as I go. My preference for hybrid is the ability to spend most of the week at home, where my partner and baby are. The benefits there being obvious.
    But I need to progress at work, both for personal development and for financial reasons. I worry working from home permanently would stifle my ability to achieve this.
    As well with hybrid, commuting becomes way more enjoyable and less of a ball ache. Late trains? Oh well, I'm not back on one till next week, etc. Seeing people at work also becomes a bit more of a interesting, more to say and the like.
    Maybe I'm dressing it all up a bit more than it is and once I settle down it will just be a slightly different normal. But spending more time with my family is the main thing.

    How did it go?

    Bit late now, bitt a simple reason for wfh, even part time, is simple. If it can be done at home, why come in?
    Personally, I see advantages to hybrid working. But every industry, and job is different.

    Tipped them over the edge by the sounds of it.
