    I came back to cabbing at the beginning of August and lasted till last week. I had been doing my trucking work up in Ipswich quite enjoyably until I had a bit of a mishap with the truck doors (details can be found on the latest post of my trucking blog truckmann.blogspot.co.uk Ever si...

    Agency Driving

    londoncabby.blogspot.com 21 Jul '16, 12pm

    am sitting at my laptop with yet another unwanted day off. Being an agency worker means you have to wait for the phone to ring on a regular basis for your next job. A Class 2 licence, which would allow me to drive the larger 18 tonne trucks, is really the way forward as there seems to...

    so, since my last post I have indeed "jacked in cab driving" and via various agencies around Ipswich have driven vans and 7.5 tonne lorries in my pursuit of meaningful employment. It all started around about 6 weeks ago when I applied for a driving job via my iphone whilst on one of m...

  • I'm off again!

    Since last posting here my cab has had its annual overhaul. This involves an MOT Test first which normally highlights problems that will need to be rectified before the main test is carried out a day or two later. I found the MOT Fail certificate in the glove box which stated that the...
