So, Professional Matt and I had a little road trip in the T Vend van last weekend to Antwerp, Belgium and Wuppertal, Germany….. It was a very nerdy trip to see Trams and the Hanging train (again) in the hope that the new trains were running. They were not, which means any other excuse to go later in the year.
Most of these night time pictures are blurry because Matthew and I decided after numerous drinks to go for a walk outside the hotel at 1am…
Here at Legoland, it’s a bit nippy… I assume the water is cold! 😂
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.
What’s wrong with the bus in this Advert then?
Just a quick Merry Christmas to you all, hope to update the blog a little more often in 2014, with bus and personal stuff… I’ve been severely bad at updating the past year.
Looks like the real time is almost working….. Again!
So I’m sat here in the little portakabin rest room at Aylesbury Bus Station, just looking out the window watching the occasional bus go past thinking it was about time for an update, so I thought I’d whip out the ipad and type something up. 🙂
Well firstly my psoriasis is back. My latest blood test showed that my current medication had damaged 21% of my liver, so I had to stop taking it straight away. Within a week my skin was covered in spots again.
After being clear for nearly 5 years it takes a bit of getting used to the stares from other people, and the constant itching. Itching that’s so bad you want to get a knife and just cut chunks of your skin out! It’s really done nothing for my confidence of late. I’m waiting to go back to the hospital this coming Friday, to see if funding has been approved for my next treatment, Humira. This is a fortnightly injection which is used to treat my psoriasis and the psoriatic arthritis which I now also have. I’m a little bit concerned by this drugs list of side effects, but the way it’s effecting me at the moment I don’t have a choice, even if I just get a few years relief from the skin and joint pain it will be worth it.
On the bus side of things not a lot to mention really, I’ve been back working at Aylesbury depot for a few weeks now and it’s going okay, The cost of commuting has rocketed since I was last here, so not sure I’ll be able to continue the travelling in the long term, especially as I am on a “new starter” rate of pay for three years, but we’ll see how it goes.
One field, and a load of Buses!
Argh why do people have to always argue?!
Uds at wembley (selective door opening where you can stop the rear four coaches from opening)…
‘but the whole train fits in the platform’
no it doesn’t it hangs off the end.
‘Well only close the end carriage off then’ can’t do that with these trains.
‘Oh fuck off then!’
Well the Olympic Torch came to Milton Keynes today, and at the last minute, Metro Matt and I decided to go have a gander.
Wasn’t the most amazing experience of my life, But was good to be able to say I’ve seen it.
