One of Arriva’s new electric buses for Route 7 has been travelling around town on a number of road tests.
(The white ‘pod’ on the roof is where the batteries are fitted)
Look out for some changes coming soon…..
So, Ive decided to change the direction my blog is going slightly. It’s going to be a bit more “twitter-ey” (If that can even be called a word), In that instead of me sitting here ever couple of weeks trying to remember what’s been happening, I’ll instead be updating with little bits as I go along.
This will hopefully mean that I’ll be more inclined to post stuff, which in turn will mean the site is updated more often.
Everything that was here before will remain, Just the posting style may change a little.
You can also now comment on posts with your Facebook or Twitter accounts instead of handing over your email address to the site.
Also, If you wish to be updated of new posts, But don’t want to give your email address, Follow me on twitter at http://twitter.com/jamoooooo
So I’m sat here in the little portakabin rest room at Aylesbury Bus Station, just looking out the window watching the occasional bus go past thinking it was about time for an update, so I thought I’d whip out the ipad and type something up.
Well firstly my psoriasis is back. My latest blood test showed that my current medication had damaged 21% of my liver, so I had to stop taking it straight away. Within a week my skin was covered in spots again.
After being clear for nearly 5 years it takes a bit of getting used to the stares from other people, and the constant itching. Itching that’s so bad you want to get a knife and just cut chunks of your skin out! It’s really done nothing for my confidence of late. I’m waiting to go back to the hospital this coming Friday, to see if funding has been approved for my next treatment, Humira. This is a fortnightly injection which is used to treat my psoriasis and the psoriatic arthritis which I now also have. I’m a little bit concerned by this drugs list of side effects, but the way it’s effecting me at the moment I don’t have a choice, even if I just get a few years relief from the skin and joint pain it will be worth it.
On the bus side of things not a lot to mention really, I’ve been back working at Aylesbury depot for a few weeks now and it’s going okay, The cost of commuting has rocketed since I was last here, so not sure I’ll be able to continue the travelling in the long term, especially as I am on a “new starter” rate of pay for three years, but we’ll see how it goes.
