Been to IKEA tonight and have purchased quite possibly the most useful item to ever come out of the shop. It cost a grand total of £2.29 and will make driving some of our older buses much nicer.. But what is it??


Driving a 500 to Watford last week and an “Wrinkly” gets on..

Me: ‘Where you going?’

Wrinkly: ‘They keep Aligators at home you know!’

Me: ‘<silence>……errr…Did you want to go somewhere?!?’

Wrinkly: “Kings Langley please”

I have no idea what that was about

We are ready for the floor

Well after my last post about my enormous phone bill I’ve decided to change networks (again). No matter how careful I am about calling and texting people it still seems to end up around the £100 a month mark.

Far too much!!! Looking for a cheap SIM Only deal or perhaps Pay As You Go again… Dunno.

Well it’s Easter Sunday and who would’ve thought we’d get snow! I took the opportunity to record the event this morning in the City Centre when most people were still asleep, and the fact that all the shops were shut today to get a few pics.

Lots of disruption at work at the moment with the start of the Bus Station refurb starting last Monday. (I’m writing a page about the refurb and the Aylesbury Transport Hub in general at www.arrivatheshires.co.uk). So far a few buses have had their stops moved into “The Tunnel” outside the station and the waiting room has been cut in half…. That’s it! That’s all they’ve done! It’s going to be a looooooong 17 weeks.

Oh yes, and this is a govelling apology to Jake for me being so miserable when he got on my bus the other week, Next time I see you I’ll just go for plain evil. 😉

Ah yes and this is a big ‘Shout oooout” to Mrs C. See told you I’d do it. 😛

Your Views Please

It’s time for another round of the ARRIVA Employee Photo Competition and I’ve been out and about today with a couple of buses, I need to select 2 from the photos below and I want your help. Please leave a comment on the one(s) you like the best. Thanks 🙂

(Please note various poles and telegraph lines etc need to be removed before being entered)
