As written yesterday but not posted... And at last that is over. Seems we did rather well in carrying people - all three sites were full and there was a lot of patience shown by the people wanting to get home. The First started trickling out of the ground at 1045 and the last were dropped off at the car park just after midnight. We reckon P&R shifted about 6,000 of the 23,000 in attendance which is not bad all things considered. Just have to wait now and see if we get any complaints in (1 so far, it being an hour since I started writing this. But we did all we could, had up to 20 buses running around etc etc etc). Now I just have to find a way of getting shot of seven boxes of unused leaflets...

Yesterday I was on a disability awareness course. I'm not sure how it really related to public transport specifically but it was still interesting and useful in a general awareness of the issue kind of way. And it was nice to get away from the phone for a day. Of course I did still pop in to the office to check messages and the like after it finished (so still got a couple of calls in then as well) but nothing too strenuous.

Otherwise work has been lots of timetable playing for the area we are reviewing.
Not much to add to that today as yet. Grandma is up for the week with Ma & Pa so they all came round last night for a chat. She is much better than last time she was here but still not 100%. That's the one thing I am not looking forward to more than any other as the years pass by. Slower recovery times.
