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.

Arthritis strikes

I have finished working in Wells, been a very good few weeks and a little sad to leave. Hopefully though, will be able to work there in the future. Have the weekend off and so far have had to have the tyre on the CBF replaced due to a puncture caused by a nail. 
Also had a trip to the vets with Harvey. He is nearly 14 and beginning to show his age. Getting slow, hearing poor and sleeps a lot. Anyway the vet checked him over and it seems he is ok for his age apart from it seems, he has Arthritis in his back legs, which explains why he finds it difficult to get in the car. We have some pain killers  which hopefully will ease things for him.
