Nice relaxing day
After the past few days of hell on planet earth in the bus world, today is somewhat easier.
It started with waking up a year older and having to get up at 320am but it wasn't too bad. I finally got the car off the street and headed to work at 4am to start a very early duty. The first part was something most drivers dread.... 5 trips on the magic roundabout. AKA the 347. Normally it's mind numbingly boring and your ready for swinging from a lampost you finish them, but today i found it very theraputic. So easy and relaxing it was so odd. Not so busy either which made it even better.
The second part was a trip to Glossop on a 237. This too was made easy as the 237 is being run direct to Glossop as a 236 due to the heavy snow in Hadfield. I had 30 minutes to spare at Glossop because of this so headed off to Costa coffee for a warm drink. 2 Man buses this morning both luke warm but manageable. Even if it was -11 when i went to work this morning.
Anyway i have finished for the weekend now, not back in until Tuesday so i am going to have a birthday party weekend before the post christmas detox kicks in. Hoping to get my new phone next week although this shot on Henry street in Glossop looks nice too.
