Today Matthew was going for tea in Trent Vale but not before he spent the day with his day service. Thanks for the valuable feedback. I think that strategy is sound and can be easily replicable. Great posts. I love this article. Gerrards Cross Taxis Matthew got up around 08:00 and had toast and juice for breakfast. The bus turned up and it was his usual transport, Shelton Care Group DV10 JCU.

We set off into Blurton an picked another service user up before going up Finstock Avenue onto Beaconsfield Drive. We turned left onto Church Road and continued onto Blurton Road. We crossed over the A50 and went straight across Heron Cross lights into Heron Street. We continue over the railway line and turned right onto Christchurch Street before reaching the destination. In the morning Matthew went into the sensory and spent time using a computer. We went to fetch dinner from the chip shop. For dinner he had sausage chips and gravy from the chips shop followed by toffee cheesecake. Matthew had been due to go to the pub in Joiners Square. Today Matthew went in an Autocab taxi. We got in the taxi and the bus set off onto Glebedale Road. We went across City Road onto Fountain Street before going left onto William Street. We turned right onto Manor Street and then we headed straight down Victoria Road and across the roundabout at Joiners square onto Lichfield Street. When we got to the pub Matthew went to the toilet and had a drink of Coke. After we had finished at the pub we returned back in a City Cabs taxi. We went onto Lichfield Street and onto Victoria Road. We turned right onto Manor Street and we went across onto Christchurch Street and we reached our destination. AS we got out of the taxi we we saw Roseville WA61 GYU opposite us.

Matthew spent some time on the computer again and when it was time to go home we returned home on his usual bus, Shelton Care Group DV10 JCU. We went onto Glebedale Road and we followed it over the railway line and onto Heron Street. We crossed the A50 and we saw Mercedes minibus SN03 ZCE being refurbished at the Lightning travel property. We continues along Blurton Road and we turned right into Beaconsfield Drive. We got home just after 15:00. Matthew had some toast and a drink of dandelion & burdock whilst we waited for the time to pass. Today we went out to catch the 16:07 from Blurton, which I had viewed earlier in the day. We were expecting it to be First Potteries 41512, the only Dart out on the #22 today. We set off to the bus stop and we saw D&G 170 on the Blurton Plumline service.

We got on the bus and booked to Harpfields Drive before sitting down towards the back of the bus. Generally speaking the buses run to time, but today it seemed as all the #22 were running quite late. The bus turned onto the A5035 and we saw Bennetts Mercedes minibus VU06 KFD go ahead of us at the junction. In Trentham we turne into New Inn Lane and we passed First Potteries 40378 on the #21A to the Trentham Hotel. We carried on into Hanford an we passed First Potteries 60072. We headed down Church Lane passing First Potteries 41495 on a #21 to Trentham before we joined the A34. We crossed under the A500 and we turned into Harpfields road where we got off the bus. We walked back onto the A34 and we stopped near to the pub to take a couple of pictures. First we saw Stafford Grammar School minibus BD64 RSV.

We we went into the pub and met up with mum. Matthew had a brunch with bread and butter followed by toffee sponge pudding with ice cream. Whilst we ate highlights of the passing buses were First Potteries 65027 on the #22, ABC Supreme FJ53 FBU and Stanton's of Stoke CC04 MAL. After we had finished eating we went out to the car. We called Uncle Dave and we went to pick him up. We drove along the A34 and onto and A500 before turning East on the A50 and going into Heron Cross before we headed into Fenton. After we had picked up uncle Dave, we headed up to Heron Cross and through Blurton, getting home around 18:05. Matthew then chilled out watching bus videos and using his computer before bedtime around 00:00... Mark
