Speaking too soon…

November 25, 2008


I should have kept my gob shut,but no i had to tempt fate and last night we paid the ferry man as the shift was crap.By the morning we all had done more than we should have and on paper we did a 16 hour shift during the 12 hours we worked ! By 06.00 my feet were on fire and whilest grabbing a chance for a brew n a fag i snapped this pic..Kind of summed it all up i reckon.

 Mind you we are known to get proper stuck in at times like that but on the last shift it kind of wears ya down a bit. Still the days off are here again so that is behind us now eh?

Final news on the Winter break as the Lovely Mrs B lets me know that we will be staying at the Hi Club Playa Blanca..Nice one!

Anyroad i’m off for a wake me up shower..Have a good one.

All is good.

Well that working week soon went by and with this being my last shift i am well chuffed it went without owt to talk about apart from a scattering of snow that barley covered the ground and a dead magpie on the roof nowt much to mark it as a bad un.

Me n the lovely Mrs B will both be off at the end of the week so a bit of crimbo shopping is in order..i like shopping for prezzies me. Oh and the final destination for our winter hols has been found and holiday booked..Lanzarote… Never been there before so well up for it! A place on the south end of the island for an all inclusive doss sounds good to me.

So all good news…Mind you i aint counting chickens,As Monday night shifts have allus been a bit of a bastard for us so fingers crossed we have a good un.

I hope most of you had a good weekend.Stay safe you lot.

Exit stage left!

The street theatre was performing again last night as pissed up twats shouted and fell into the hedges of us normal folk..How come people get so pissed they have to shout at each other from a foot away?

To top it off nextdoor to us had some cavity wall insulation installed today and the noise of it woke me early so a rough night and an early morning did nowt for my mood.

Not a bad day though today and my mood lifted once i got to the shops,A bit of a stir fry tonight so not much prepping to do untill it’s time to cook.And to lift my spirits even more i managed to lob my slipper at that big fat ginger cat hitting it’s arse as it buggered off out of the garden..Nice!

Anyroad i’m off for a fistfull of fags and a bucket of tea.Have a good one and stay safe out there.

Just done.

Good to see the back of that stint at the factory,Douggie was missed,But not i have four days off it makes it worthwhile. Mind you saying that ,it is a full time job keeping the squirrel’s in nuts nowadays as we are bunging out a kilo a day to keep um happy,I reckon there aint a spot in the garden without a nut buried in it!

The garden gets busy this time of year but i reckon it’s worth the effort to keep the wild creatures in food eh!

Anyroad i’m off up to Mozzers for some shopping,Have a good one you lot and take care.

Cats still piss me off.

November 12, 2008

You know how i hate cats? Well this pic was taken by our Rick,Who just found the cats head on the grass whilst out walking…Weird eh?

Oh and if you have a moggie on ya motor,Here’s the way to shift it.



Fascinating biology facts…

November 12, 2008


The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and the smallest is the male sperm.

  It takes the food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
One human hair can support 3 kg (6 lb).
The average man’s penis is three times the length of his thumb.
Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.

 A woman’s heart beats faster than a man’s.
There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.
Women blink twice as often as men.
The average person’s skin weighs twice as much as the brain.
Your body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.
If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.
Men who read this are probably still busy checking their thumbs.

Cheers to Mal the Plod for this one..Made me check my thumbs..It’s true ya know..

The yout of today.

Lets hope the Nottingham City Council approve the funds for the building of the “centre of excellence” here in Clifton,The young folks around here need something they can get involved in,And the rumour is that if the sale of the old Roundabout building goes through it will be a new Police station..Good news all round i reckon,Mind you i wouldn’t mind a chance of buying the old police station,I reckon it would make a brill home.

Not a bad day here in Hood Town today,a bit of sunshine and not too cold,My last day off so i am making the most of it and with Douggie off next week i ain’t looking forward to getting back to the factory i can tell ya.Mind you the lovely Mrs B is making the final plans for our late Winter hol so we have something to look forward to.Bring on the sun!

Anyroad i got the dinner to prepare so i’m off.Have a good one you lot and stay safe.

Just got back from the shops.Busy up there,I ain’t seen that many folks up there for years,Packed solid it was..Mind you i can see why,it’s brill,Can’t fault it and a couple of the old supervisors ain’t there,The one’s that hid from work when it was the Co-Op. The produce is bang on and they sell Manns Brown,What more could i want?

More reasons to shop at Morrisons.

No sign of the Co-Op.

November 10, 2008

Off up to Mozzers to see how it looks today..Been a long wait but well worth it just to see the back of the Co-Op,My insiders tell me the old supervisors have had a tough time during their training and will have to get their fingers out and get some work done for a change. Well up for a bit of shopping me.

A bit of a rough week at the factory just gone by and i managed to cop a bump on my head,nowt to serious but it’s as sore as fuck.Douggie is off again next week,getting some steroids pumped into his arse cheeks to sort out his trapped nerve,then the week after the gaffer has a fortnight off leaving me to pilot the ship,each passing week brings me n the lovely Mrs B closer to our winter hols..Bring on the sun is what i say.

Anyroad it’s time for me to cut the ribbon at Morrisons and i don’t want to keep Angelina waiting.Let the shopping begin!

No shit Shirlock.

So the Nottingham city council are now thinking of a Robin Hood logo to promote Hood town,After throwing away 120 grand on the wonkey N, Get your act together will ya,Did the people of Hood town tell you they wanted it when you buggered about with the logo last time.

The above picture is from a pub i went to last year in Lloret,Instant Hood town recognition i reckon.Bring  Robin back to Hood town with pride!

I have read that hedgehogs are in decline so i am well chuffed to say that we now have two resident spikey friends as we now have a youngster snuffleing around the grounds here at Barnze Towers, Our adult Hedgepig Grunt has given birth for the second time in three years. The lovely Mrs B sees to it that they are fed and watered every night so we are doing well with them. And keeping those bastard cats away does um good unall!

Anyroad i’m off for a brew,Have a good one you lot and take care out there.From Hero to Zero.
