I’ve shit um.

May 31, 2008

Well that was a shift and a half i can tell ya.. Talk about carrying the load..The sooner my mate gets back the better i say. The bag of bollocks replacement they flew in to assist was no more use than a chocolate fireguard..Fuck me just when ya need the back up the system falls flat eh?

Mind you half the week done and apart from the stabbing pains things can only get better. A full crew tonight so a smooth one i hope then back to me n the numpty on Sunday night!

A lovely morning to come home in today. The sun was bright and warm so i opened up the patio doors to enjoy some of the freshness only to witness that filthy black cat kill a blue tit on the garage roof. Why the fuck do folks keep such vermin in their houses i shall never know..

Anyroad it’s time for me to get sorted for another stint. Enjoy the rest of the weekend those of you lucky enough to be off work. Take care.

A few weeks to go.

Another migraine today..Arse! It’s not a tumor! Back to the factory tonight and we have a new bod in to cover for Douggie who is recouping at home after his op.Get well soon mate we need you back on the shop floor.

Only a few week now till our holiday down in Somerset though this month sees me at the factory every weekend so no quality time with the lovely Mrs B unless she takes a few days hol mid week that is..hey ya never know! Anice Shepherds Pie cooking away down in the kitchen for the family’s evening meal..Mrs B does like my cooking though second helpings mostly go to young master B who will eat it cold???? How gross is that?

I am in need of a hair cut butSpeedys was closed the other day when i nipped up so i am hoping Mrs B will give me a trim over the weekend.We have some clipper so a quick job apart from the “Are you going on holiday this year?” and “Something for the weekend?” chat that is part of the ritual of home hair cutting here at Barnze Towers.

Anyroad it’s time for a shower and a shave in readiness for tonight’s shift.have a good one you lot.well most of you, the others (They know who they are) can fuck off and die. Stay safe and take care eh?

Like a bad penny.

May 27, 2008

Pissing down with rain today…Mind you i don’t feel like doing much as i had a drop too much beer last night and i am a bit fuzzy today.I got a smile off my site meter today though as the old factory dropped in four times today..Allus makes me grin when they pop in. They seem to be unable to keep away and since the IT fuck up that could not happen…. but did, it gives me a warm feeling knowing they know that i know..Is that a Slade song?

A stir fry on the menu tonight so only a bit of prepping to do and we are there. Speaking of food last nights meal at the pub was good.They have done a good job of the place i reckon and i will visit again when the fancy takes.

The street theater has been good lately as it seems to be the in thing to sware at the youngsters..No wonder they grow up with no respect!!!

Anyroad it’s time for a frag fest on Quake 4 so i am off, Have a good one and stay safe out there as the knife twats are on the prowl.

Latin thought of the week.

Vir prudens non contra ventum mingit.

Pub grub.

May 26, 2008

We have decided to go to a local boozer that has just started to do meals . Kind of odd realy that it has taken so long for our local pubs to catch on that folks want a meal with their pint. Mind you i have never been that impressed with those pub chain food outlets but we are giving it a go.

A bit of a grey day so no walking,Even though the sun breaks out every now n then i reckon it will rain so the local pub is just the ticket. On the room move front i am not best pleased with the strength of the wireless connection so i am gunna connect via a cable and as luck would have it we already have the cables in place in the attic so an easy job eh?

I reckon it’s time to move over from the PC now and let the Lovely Mrs B try to get past level 40 of Bubblez though she has been at it for months and the music pisses me off no end.

Have a good one and stay safe out there.

Barnze Say’s ” Nice one Dave” another one out of the old factory and into the new..A challenge ahead mate.


A falcon brill day.

May 26, 2008

Let me tell ya a bit about our day hunting with the hawks eh?

As we stood waiting at the arraigned spot a chap came out of the woods,introduced himself and guided us in. in less than five minutes we had gloves on and after being told how to stand to allow the birds to come to us a huge owl came out of the trees and landed on Mrs Bs hand. it was brill to see such a large bird land with grace on her fist.after a bit of of a walk through the woods we came upon the site where we were going to be based..A clearing with a table and a few perches for the birds..Then off to the falconers van to collect the birds.two Harris Hawks (Biggles and Dicky) A peregrine falcon (Jess) a Saker falcon whose name i forget, and the owl,a Bengal Eagle owl

The morning was spent getting the birds to come to our hands and learning about the history of falconry Oh and tying the falconers knot.All in a very interesting time.After lunch (With some very nice homemade soup) we took out the Harris Hawks and went out into the fields for some hunting sadly all we got was a crow with a manky wing but it was good to see the birds at work,And our dog for the day Boris did a brill job of flushing out all he could including the midges that bit the fuck out of us.

By the end of the day we were tired but well chuffed.Bad news is my camera card buggered up so i lost over a 100 pictures.Arse! All in a brilliant day out that i can recommend to anyone who likes to get amongst nature at its rawest. Go on give it a go!

Anyroad it’s time for me to bugger off and enjoy the public holiday with the lovely Mrs B , Perhaps a walk is in ouder if the weather stays nice.

Have a good one and take care out there.


Changing places.

May 25, 2008

I have been off live for a while as i hav moved from the small study to the larger one at the back of Barnze Towers so no net for a while.. I shall give you the blah about the falconry day later in the week as i am up to my armpits with shite at the moment. Mind you i have found some good stuff during the move though i must declutter..I find it hard to get rid of stuff though!

Anyroad just a quick un to show i am still alive..

Have a good one.

Peaced out and full up.

May 19, 2008

Just got back from the pub after a pleasant walk along the Trent. Feeling full of good food and beer and relaxed after the stroll amongst the trees. The bird song down there was soothing to the mind and the gentle bubble of the river makes for a very relaxing walk.

A nice mixed grill for me and lemon and herb chicken for the lovely Mrs B went down a treat and with the excitement of Mrs B spilling her drink all over the table made for a good time. A bit of a quiet night in tonight cuz we are up early for the birds of prey in the morning. All in a nice few days spent together..Holidays just a few weeks away so all is well.

Young master B is well chuffed with his birthday prezzy and is happy with the choice of games we brought for all he has to do is get his room tidied up a bit and we all shall be chuffed..i ain’t holding my breath!

Anyroad i reckon i shall have another beer and catch up on the Avengers..Have a good one dear reader and stay safe.

A walk and a pint.

May 19, 2008

A lovely day to nip down the grove so me n the lovely Mrs B are putting on our walking boots and getting amongst it. Binoculars and camera at the ready and at the end of the walk we come out at the Wilford farm inn so a pint and a bite to eat will do us nicely i reckon.

A bit of an early start in the morning as we set off for a days has been a long time coming so we are well chuffed it has got here. do you know that we will get to eat some of the kills the birds have made…How good is that!

Anyroad we are off on our hike..Have a good one you lot and take care out there.
