Today has been a humbling day as I don’t have my car I had to get the bus into the uni and home later in the day, I’ve not used public transport for a work commute for over 15 years. It’s easy to take our cars for granted when we have the means to pay for them and the fuel to power them but for some this is not an option.

I have to admit I was a little nervous about getting the bus not getting the bus itself as I did on Saturday and have done many times before but I was mainly worried about knowing when to press the button so it would stop and drop me off at the right place and then working out where I catch it to come home and making sure I was there in time to catch it too. This is one of the reasons I don’t tend to use public transport very much as part of my dyslexia is I stress and worry about these types of things and for most of the day it was at the back of my mind that I’d have to walk to the bus stop, flag down the right bus all at the a certain time.

Running to someone else’s timetable is pretty challenging when you are so used to doing as you please as I am so this week will remind me that I’ve very very lucky to have the life I live and that using the bus for work is an opportunity to sit back and relax, albeit for around 10-15 minutes but still time to appreciate the scenery on the journey I won’t usually get to see.

And not stress about all the things I can’t do while not having a car!!

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
