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.

Nice end to 2010

Well 2010 has been interesting. High point was being Team Leader at New Wine. Low point was of course breaking my ankle which is still healing. Anyway great end today with a trip to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway, Followed by a trip to Frome on the 267 and a 184 back. This is a very tight route but passes through some very pretty villages and Hamlets such as Mells, this is where the Horner family lived and is reported to be the source of the 'Little Jack Horner' nursery rhyme.Any way nearly 2011 and if the BBC presenter says BBC HD one more I will ... As we watch the fireworks from London Fiona has just reminded me that this time last year we went on a 'tour' of London courtesy of National Express!!! Happy New Year.

And we complain

Bath is a reactively quite place and on the whole a very safe place to drive buses. However as drivers we all have a moan about various areas and types of passengers. I am unaware of any driver being seriously injured let alone killed in the course of there job. I read this and was stunned!
