So this was the scene at 7.45 this morning in the heart of Ericsson land. It seems like every other building is an Ericsson office, but where is everyone? Guildford it most definitely isn’t!

A full day at the office, nothing unusual in that except I’m at Ericsson’s Group HQ in Sweden. After a simple 5 minute walk from the hotel this morning – well I say simple but actually my first step out of the hotel I almost ended up seeing stars, thankfully I recovered well from any embarrassment – it was a day of regional communication meetings. Good to catch up with some old friends too up on the 6th floor – yes I was allowed that high 😉

So the country grinds to a halt… again! It really is beyond me how much we suffer with roads/transport etc after a little bit of snow. I mean, there are many countries who still manage to run perfectly normal despite practically being covered in snow for months at a time – why is it so difficult here? Does this happen in winter in Stockholm? I don’t think so.

I managed to brave the weather and made it to within 10 miles of Guildford before having to turn back – just about every road into Guildford is blocked from either snow or accidents. Anyway, I’ve made it instead to Basingstoke – but by the looks of it I risk being snowed in here too! Now where did I put those tennis racket shoes of mine….
