LONG DAY

13th April Meeting at Longstone with managers. Tour bus contract terminated. I’m awaiting start date to retrain on the city centre Lothian buses where I previouly worked before the car crash nealy six years ago.
11th April I resigned from the bus tours because of unpleasant issues.
8th April Parked at Ingliston P&R then tram to Princes Street. Was awaiting bus 19 to Marine Garage. Ended up being VERY long day. Not home until 21.50 meaning 14.75 hours since I departed for work.
Signed on for work at Marine at 09.35, checked bus then drove to St. Andrew’s Square departing on the first of two trips on the Majestic Tour. Lunch break then two trips on Edinburgh Tour. Break then final trip on the same.
Back at Marine 19.00 with bus. Signed off then walked to take a 26 to Haymarket for tram to airport.

20.45: Mega tailbacks on M8 at Newbridge. No warning signs on approach roads saying motorway had been closed (since police car chase ended in RTA at 19.45).
Reversed down hard shoulder and finally took A71 to Livingston then home by 21.45
