Hears two lessons for everyone.

1. Don’t let anyone you don’t know to ‘upgrade’ your blog.

2. Make sure you have a backup.

Luckily there hasn’t been many updates on here in the recent future, but anything that was posted before 2016 was lost. 😩

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! 😴😴


Bus Fire in CMK

A Redline bus caught fire today at the old Bus Station in CMK today..

Going by the flames in the first picture it seems they were very lucky that there wasn’t more damage done to the Bus Station/Buszy

There has been unconfirmed reports that the bus had mechanical issues earlier in the day, but of course that could be something completely unrelated.

Changes to Bus Stops in CMK

The main City Centre stops by The Point had a bit of a switch around on Sunday with services stopping at different stops in an attempt to stop some of the congestion, Mainly caused by the out of town services unable to pull into the stop outside McDonald’s properly and then blocking the road…
