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.
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.
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 I’m going to be doing a 15 mile bike ride round Milton Keynes on the 9th September in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Gonna be pretty interesting to see if I even make it round haha, But I’m hoping people will sponsor me to do it!.

Not much been going on in the bus world really.
Me and Metro Matt decided to go and have a ride on the new cable car in London.
It sways quite alarmingly once it’s over the Thames, but for the 5 minute ride I think it’s quite expensive at £3.40 one way. Also it doesn’t go past the most attractive parts of London!!
