The week that was

What a long week it’s been!122 mile round trip to work every day this week as I’ve been over to High Wycombe depot supervising the installation of cab radios for drivers to communicate with the depot while out on the road. 

 This has been my project to implement at Milton Keynes, Aylesbury and now Wycombe. As of course the buses are not available during the day it’s meant I’ve had to be at each depot through the night while the radio company install them in each bus…… You don’t realise how hard it is to keep warm in the early hours when you aren’t doing anything!

It’s been weird working at night and having the daytime to do stuff, my PT sessions at the gym were moved to afternoons for the week but I couldn’t get my head round the fact I shouldn’t be at work lol. 

Quite a productive week as I managed to collect a couple of vending machines to refurb and hopefully site in the near future….

Also, I’ve seen these labels to put on machines and have decided to partly Nick their idea and give all my machines names! πŸ˜€


The other job

I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned my other ‘job’ on here before, (It’s been a long time since I posted with any sort of regular pattern), but the Vending Machine business is slowly taking off. Β It’s been a busy 12 months with the number of sites/machines doubling and updating the whole fleet of machines with Credit/Debit card readers.


Well the business has taken another turn with the purchase of a bigger van…. Meet Vernon the Vivaro!


Time Flies

Well it’s been a long time since I posted on here, there’s been a number of reasons, nothing much to report, Arriva’s ‘social media policy’ stopping me from posting some items, and also a hint of laziness!

Well today I’ve been working on a camp site shuttle service for a company called City Camping, ferrying campers to the Bowl for the Foo Fighters concert…. In three hours time I get to take them all back again. About 2am I can drive the bus back to Luton, then drive back to MK in the car to finally reach my bed! 😴😴
