Emergency stops and Orange squash!

spillageI’ve just spent some time cleaning up the bus. After a visit to the secondary school yesterday lunch time I was driving down a narrow road back to the farm where we keep the bus, coming the other way was a large lorry, he had no intention of slowing down and I ended up having to make an emergency stop. When I got back to the farm I noticed the problems caused by this action, everything had fallen out of the cupboard at the back of the bus and spread itself over the floor. Now this has happened before and is not usually a major problem, this time though there was an almost full 5l bottle of orange squash that did not survive it’s meeting with the floor, needless to say most of the squash was now over the floor. To make matters worse I had nothing on board particularly helpful for clearing it up and I needed to get the car back for Gill, 24 hours later when I could next get over to the bus what a nice sticky floor!
Lesson learnt? I need to put a lock on the cupboard door so it can’t open when driving!
Have a good weekend everybody!

    Hi glad to see you on Facebook and that you have found my new blog – it was a bit intermittent but I have got more into it again. But a question. Have you thought of putting a bolt on the cupboard door so that it doesn’t come open?

    I have to admit I have been thinking for quite a long time now that I should find some way of locking the door, it doesn’t happen often and has until now never been a major problem, now I need to do something about it though!
