Today Matthew wasn't very well... He woke up on Monday Morning with a swollen face. Matthew spent most of Monday at home apart from the time he spent at the doctors and at a local hospital having a blood test. When Matthew woke up this morning he was still poorly, so we went to get uncle Dave to look after him whilst I went to work and mum went to see Grandma. Matthew got up and toast and orange juice for breakfast. For dinner uncle Dave made Matthew a sausage sandwich. I got back from work around 15:00 and Matthew was much better than he was this morning so we decided to go to Grandma's on the bus, but first we had to drive uncle Dave back home. Matthew had some toast and a glass of orangeade. We set off just before 16:00 and we went through Blurton along Beaconsfield Drive. We passed First Potteries 66306 which was an unusual allocation on the #22 to Newcastle. We also passed First Potteries 42553 on a #23 to Hanley. We turned left onto Church Road and at the roundabout we turned left onto Blurton Road. We ran down the hill and up towards Heron Cross and we passed First Potteries 41540 on a #23 to Newstead. In Heron Cross we saw Lightning Travel minibus T2 DLT. We crossed over the A50 and we dropped into Fenton to drop off uncle Dave. After we had dropped him off we ran back up towards Heron Cross and we passed City Cabs SJ54 MWY coming the other way. We turned right onto Blurton Road and we passed Z Carz YE52 UZX. We crossed the A50 and we saw Z Carz GK02 NWJ. We continued along Blurton Road into Blurton and we passed Stanton's of Stoke minibus SO57 OKE. We ran up the hill and we turned right onto Church Road. We turned right onto Beaconsfield Drive and we got home around 16:15. We got out of the car and we walk all the way to the bus stop on Beaconsfield Drive. I had seen the bus so I didn't know what was going to turn up. The bus turned the corner and it was First Potteries 67639.

We crossed over the A34 and we then walked back towards Grandma's house. At Grandma's Matthew had a can of Irn Bru and used her computer. We said goodbye to Grandma around 18:45 and we ran along Occupation Street and onto the A34. We ran South tot Trent Vale and we stopped at Tesco to put diesel in the car. We crossed over the A34 and we went to McDonalds to get Matthew's tea. Once we had picked up the food we went South down the A34 through Hanford and into Trentham. We turned left onto the A5035 and we ran over the railway line into Blurton. We got home around 19:45. When we got back Matthew ate his McDonalds, which was a cheeseburger, fries and chicken nuggets washed down with a Coke. Matthew then chilled out on his computer until bedtime around 23:00... Mark
