What a month...

Bloody hell but time flies by quickly!!!
I feel like only yesterday I was left all on my own in a bloody huge bus and armed only with a schedule and the memory of having travelled the route before.
And at the same time I also feel like I have been a bus driver for ages already and can handle anything thrown at me. (said only with the kind of confidence brought on by being new to it all)
I have had so much fun in the few weeks that I have been out on my own.
I have had sweet old ladies offering me sweets to say "thanks", tiny little kiddies yelling out with the volume unique to them "bye bye mr bus man!!!" and the cherry so far, a group of the little things singing their tiny lungs out in sheer rapture to a phone belting out "now it's raining more than ever, you can stand under my um-ber-ella, ella, ella!"( you all know the song, it sticks in your head and now I get these warm flashbacks of these kiddies everytime I need to turn on the wipers.)
I must say that since I started driving I can say that this is probably one of the most enjoyable jobs I've had, and beats an office job hands down.
Thanks to the marvels of technology, I have not been able to go online much recently because my ISP has suddenly gone very, very inconsistent. It has made me wish I had my very own satellite in space that I can use for my phone calls and surfing. That would be fantastic, no monthly bills, no helpdesks and junkmail, no annual upgrading, just something that works like I want it to. No mess no fuss.
And now for my last peeve of the day, is dealing with letting/estate agents. I have decided to move out of the tiny little flat i live in right now with my wife, and get bigger and better digs. This meant having to actually meet and interact with these "Other People". Oh man, were some of the flats shown to us rubbish dumps!! Or completely not what we wanted to have, but rather what they wanted us to have. At long last I made the decision on a flat that made the grade. Now its me and a van at the end of the month to get us set up in our nice 4th floor flat looking out over the sea and the city AND a it of the countryside. Sounds great, because it is. Too me right now.
Gotta go, I have been pushing my luck with the amount of time I've been online without the line dropping on me...
