The works coming in thin and slow instead of thick and fast as it should be in July....though it's an encouraging sign.

Got our first one booked for Monday. Seems that now the quarantine has been lifted a few 'emergency' trips are dribbling through.

we got a trickle of work and then a few at lunch time but we seem to have lost a few regulars to other companies and a lot to the army of volunteers. The town is getting very quiet :sad:

I’m averaging five jobs on an 8 or 9 hour shift. Had a bit of luck yesterday with a £40 job and a £35 job. Had a go at the euro lottery while my luck was in. :D

I won the jackpot! I went back the newsagents to claim it, they said they couldn’t pay me out there and then so I asked for a refund and got my £2.50 back. :D

Our takings this week, 1st full week back, were at 53% of the takings before the lockdown. I thought that was pretty good considering that we did not have the full number of drivers out.
