Thanks so much for your replies.
I have been bleeding the air out of the system each time I stop the vehicle throughout the day. I do this by releasing the rad cap a little till it leaves via the hose to the overflow container.
This seems to have stabilized things for now. At least its not overheating for now.
I hadn't thought of the thermostat. I guess I will find out soon enough if the thermostat has loosened up? Or, once they stick, are they completely stuck?
