It’s been a busy time of it, with some good times of late.
Results of the medical tests were interesting – the most obvious test does not pick up any wheat/gluten problems, but other tests were sort of hinting in that direction. So, it’s still a case to be investigated. After discussions with the doctor today, further referrals are to follow, with more blood tests to be done by me in a few weeks too. I’m still feeling better, with the symptoms slowly disappearing. This has to be a good sign, no matter what is involved, I think.
On Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th April, we were out and about on the streets of Hemel Hempstead, Kings Langley and Watford, promoting the new Saturday service (and improved weekday timetable) on Tiger Line Buses Service T2. We had our mascot Roary The Tiger out and around too, as well as a presence on the Intalink information bus in Hemel on the Friday. Lots of good feedback from passengers, some interesting ideas and suggestions (and requests!), and Roary was extremely popular, as I am sure you can imagine! Have a look at my pictures from Friday and my pictures from Saturday. After all that, lots of leaflets and free journey vouchers given out! (My mobile number was transferred to my new phone on Friday morning. The existing one is staying with me).
Monday 26th April, C had an appointment at Addenbrookes Hospital. No problems, just routine.
On Tuesday 27th April, I went out on an Intalink Explorer. Centrebus Solo 305 took me on the 90 to Baldock. As you may recall on my previous posts, Cozy Travel took over operation of Service 391 (Stotfold/Baldock – Stevenage) from Herberts, from 29th March 2010. This was my first travels on the route since the change of hands, and I had what I think is a former Go-North East bus, X733 FPO, from Baldock to Stevenage, Lister Hospital. From there, it was Arriva Service 301 to St Albans, stop for lunch (stuffed again, believe it or not!) before continuing on the Service 300 to Hemel Hempstead. From there, uno Scania 352 on the 634 to Hatfield Galleria, where the change of bus gave me enough time to stop at Thorntons and the Paper Mill Shop! From there, Uno Dart 100 on the 341 to Hertford, and then Arriva Solo 2463 on the 331 to Royston, where C was waiting to pick me up! Pictures here.
Today, Thursday 29th, out to the doctors this morning (see above). Now watching out the window, as rain threatens to return, just in time for the bank holiday!
