Hello and welcome to my Blog, my name is Chris, a bus driver for First Mendip based in Wells, Somerset. Married to Fiona, we live in Midsomer Norton near Bath, with Harvey the dog and Boots the cat. My main hobby is Amateur Radio and I hold the call sign G4KVI. I am the repeater keeper for GB3UB and MB7UB. I have a fascination for the weather and all things to do with nature and science. I am a biker and currently ride a Honda CBfF600. As a Christian I worship, when shifts allow at St. Nicolas Church in Radstock. These are my observations on my life, both at work and at home.

Home from New Wine

Sitting at home after what must be the best New Wine ever. I believe that after last year we were being blessed for our perseverance! God clearly gave me peace despite feeling very ill at times. I saw God working in people and situations. One situation will stay with me forever and blew me away. So, as I sit here with the sound of resurfacing vehicles what does this year hold? Well of course we will not be back at Shepton as next year we move to Peterborough. This seems to have excited many people. We are currently purchasing the house we live in but even that has not stressed me, yet. So, I am excited to see what the Lord has planned for us.

All equal in the sight of God.

Here we are on the first day of week 2. Week one flashed by, helped of course by the tremendous weather. This seems to have kept incidents to a minimum and a really good atmosphere around the site. The stewarding team has been rather smaller than some years, but the incredible  team spirit and the way the team has gelled was very inspiring. This two weeks is the time I give to God. He guides and helps me throughout the year and this is the time I give to him and recharge my spiritual batteries. I also look for a word he has for  me and this week it seems to be 'we are all equal in the sight of God' An example of this was today when some of the leaders joined us. It was thought provoking to see such a varied group of people all working together and more importantly looking out for each other in the extreme heat and dust. I look forward to what he has to say the rest of the week. It is also the last New Wine at Shepton Mallet as next year it is moving to Peterborough so we will all be newbies.

Thank You

A big thank you do all the Birthday wishes. Unfortunately I was working today, but enjoying a couple of beers this evening as I have tomorrow off. However, had a fantastic day yesterday in Torquay with an excellent lunch by the harbour. Today, being 55 also signals some big changes in our life with a house purchase on the top of the list. Also with the new business venture some exciting times to come.
