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.

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.

A very sad day

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Harvey, our fifteen year old collie cross passed away this afternoon. We have had for fourteen years, and being a rescue dog he seemed to appreciate every day. His end was dignified and stress free with both of us by his side. We look forward to the day when we will see him again.

Easter day

Tomorrow is properly the most important day in the Christian calendar. It is day we remember the miracle of Christ's resurrection, giving us the promise that we will all have eternal life with him in heaven. Unfortunately I am working, hopefully given, that all the shops are shut it will be a peaceful day.
Tomorrow is also the day I officially take my place as the Unite Equality Rep for the Wells depot. Interesting that this is on the day when I am remembering Jesus, and what his views were on equality.

Happy Easter      He is Risen!
