Grand times

September 23, 2014

alldancingWhat a great time we all had on our hols. it was realy good to get together and chill. i hope we get to do it again .

Now looking at 20 weeks of grey cold winter. Mind you a holiday booked for February so light at the end of the tunnel eh?

Changes to come at the factory but none as yet. We need a fresh view of what we do so i am looking forward to some new procedures.

Got a new camera whilst on holiday so a few new modes of taking photos are now at my finger tip. might even share a few snaps when i get out with it.

All in i i am on a high though life has a way of knocking you back but so far the world is kissing my chuddies.

Take care out there.

Family does Tenerife

August 25, 2014

Only two weeks to go till our extended family jet off to Tenerife.
I am expecting some good times. It will be good to get some quality time with the grandchildren. Mind you I will need at least a couple of days downtime to catch some sun.
Been quite busy the last couple of days removing our old shed to make room for the new one.
We also chopped the top of our Rowan tree because LaLa had eaten some of the berries making her ill. That led to digging up some bushes from the side of the garden and replanting them in the front garden.
Now both the Lovely Mrs B and me are aching so we are well up for a spot of chilling in the sun.

We are off to West Runton with the dogs in the morning. Franks first view of the sea.. I reckon it will send him even more wappy than he is.. La La has been before and ran up a cliff in Filey.
A nice cottage next door to a shire horse sanctuary in a little village a few miles from Cromer. Should get some relaxing done as well as a bit of walking.


Well up for it.
Keep smiling.

Having a knees up

May 20, 2014

street_art_banksy_london_england_3Well the time is going by a a good speed as our walking holiday gets closer.

We met our new bosses last week, they gave us a bit of hope of improvement in conditions so its a wait n see situation.. We have been here before so no holding breaths n that. The new mob seem to give a fuck so all is good.


My knee has been playing up for a few weeks now and I am thinking of getting a replacement done. Now I am old I can get it fixed. Bit  of a decision to make as my mates op dint go as well as it should and he is now having another op..

Tell ya what though it would be good to cut out the pain killers. Asnd get about pain free. I will make my decision when we get back from our holidays. See how I cope with the walks.  Mind you I do about five or six hours walking every day at work and that ain’t easy on my knee. We shall see!

Both Roxy and Frank are getting into mates mode now though they still have to rag each other up every day ( must be a dog thing) but on the whole they get on well.

Any road I’m off to watch Dark Star. A corny 70s Si fi movie.

Keep smiling.

A bit of sick.

May 10, 2014

I boffed up last night.. Not a lot but the first puke for years.. Not keen on it so I hope its gonna be ages till I do it again.. Then I lay in bed till five till I went to sleep. What’s all that about.

New bosses take over in June so I am hoping for some changes. I like change but I like notes better.

Holiday time in four weeks time and I am well up for it though I hope my knee is up to the walking. It will be good to get both beach & countryside  walking in. And its Frankie’s  first holiday and view of the sea.. I reckon he will be straight in there.

Keep smiling.

May.. not summer yet!

May 1, 2014

Well we made it this fat without getting snowed in eh? Only a few weeks till we are off to West Runyon for a week of chilling.

Holidays are what its all about I reckon.


Holiday in view.

April 24, 2014

We are off to Norfolk for a weeks costal walking with the dogs soon. Well looking forward to that i can tell you. Been a few weeks of heavy crap at work. And Mrs B has had a lot on so the pair of us are ready for a good relax.

Hopefully we can get some new fencing up while we are away so we dont have to keep the dogs in. Be good to get home to a secure garden without the hasstle.

Frank is settling down with us and Roxy and he is putting on more weight & getting fitter but he has a farting problem. Proper stinks at times. We are cutting his meals down now so i hope he gets a grip of his trump muscle.

Anyroad i’m off.. Have a good one and Keep Smiling.Pentax Digital Camera

What a week that was.

April 16, 2014

dfYou know how we are restricted in the way we can go public with certain things that happen at work.. I do as my long term readers know. Well we have had a week of shit at the factory. I do wish i could put it down here but a previous twat of a boss (Still breathing sadly) tried to hold my blog against me.

Anyroad we have been in two very violent situations this week. All 3 of us were lucky to get away without getting hurt. We know that sooner rather than later our luck is gunna go bad & with all of us being assaulted in the past we know how it feels to take a good beating from some drugged / drunk or just plain nutty cunt.


I would like to put down the full story but feel it would do me & my crew some harm.

The joys of a Hospital Security Officer eh!

I reckon at nearly 57 i am getting a bit to old for disarming psychotic’s with edged weapons – wrestling blokes half my age & twice my size to the floor – Getting punched – Spat on – & generally getting abused on a monthly basis. Don’t get me wrong.. I enjoy my £6.41 per hour job but i reckon pay should go up & staffing be increased .

In the interest of safety our staffing levels are sadly lacking and being a contractor we are left out of the protective & compensation systems others benefit from.

Mini rant over.

Take care out there and keep smiling.

Thought ofthe day — The wound from the back stab never heals and sometimes it itches like hell.. Feel free to scratch it.
