    3rd attempt trying to keep it short,

    I live between 2 properties, one is a student one I live a few days a week as uni is far away and its cheaper to rent that than commute due to being given travel expenses.

    However I normally have to change trains meaning a 2 hour journey apart from 1-3 trains a day that go straight through where I live that means 55 minutes journey.

    I have no classes next week but want to go down to student accomodation to drop off a bag of computer parts so when the last thing arrives in post I can just build pc. also as bills are inclusive I can take my dirty clothes to student accomodation tonight and wash them so dry by morning but the issue is as its 2 hours to get there at earliest I would say I would be at property around 5.30 tonight if I take the 2 hour train and by time it takes to get to train station or 6.50 if I wait for fast train meaning I would only get about 2 or 3 hours before bedtime.

    I could as well wait to tomorrow morning and get first train at 8am getting me in at 9 giving me all day in town but then makes it difficult to do the washing

    Either way I plan to come back tomorrow night as have to be up 7.30am Tuesday for a appointment.

    I could of course just leave going to student accomodation till Thursday or Friday night but that means hassle.

    What would you do?

    I see it's a bit late.. but I would've gone for the first option - going the first day and getting everything in place.

    Why the constant travelling backwards and forwards?
