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.

New Area

Well today was great but scary. Was out on routes I had only been out before with a shadow driver. The weather was terrible floods, thunder but I made it. I am well pleased, hard work but worth it. Tomorrow more new routes so hope the weather is better.

Early start and prats on the road

Start at 0400 today!! Very foggy on the M4. The road seem to be full of Saturday drivers. Middle lane hogs, people doing 50mph on the m4 all in all lots of prats.

New Seat Belt law

Well back after a few days off. Bad traffic in London A4 accident and the M4 shut. However made it up and back without too many problems.
New seat belt law came in to effect on Monday. Had to chage the safety brief but noone seems to notice some wear them and some don't.
Nice day today so looking forward to a good drive.
