A bit Jaded..

March 29, 2009

I for one was getting well bored with all that Jade Goody shit in the news.. But i reckon Questionmarc has got the story bang on with this piece of art..Nice one.

Summer Time.

March 29, 2009

For us here in the UK the clocks went forward,How casual of us to just throw away an hour eh? Anyroad it’s now officially Summer time here, And a nice day too,Mind you as i am back at the factory for the start of the night shifts i don’t get to enjoy much of it but on the good side of things i am coming up to a roll of weekends off so i reckon me and the lovely Mrs B will take advantage of those.

The Malteseholiday is keeping our spirits lifted i must say, Though 11 weeks is a long time eh? Roll on.

Some outdoor theatre coming up in the next few months up at the Castle & Newstead Abbey and i reckon we shall be having a portion of that!

Anyroad it’s cup of tea and a fag time so i’m off. Have a good one & enjoy the Summer.

Holidays booked..Cases at the ready.

March 25, 2009

Our holidays are now booked and paid for and only a couple of months to go till we fly out to Malta, We have booked a week all inclusive at the Qawra palace hotel..Roll on i say.

The scabby bits are now coming away from the tattoo though it aint at its best just yet.I  have been looking up some designs for the the next piece though i still haven’t decided which one to go for.. Don’t choice just wind you up????

Not a bad week at the factory though we lost our latest team member due to a major fuck up by him ..The replacement team member is traing up this week and will be with us on Sunday night for some on the job training..It’s been a funny few months for us what with the last three noobies not making the grade..Let’s hope this one cuts the mustard!

Some good news on the Robin Hood front as Vanessa Redgrave signs up for Tarantino”s new film..Looking forward to that one.

Anyroad i’m off to look up places for the winter hols. Have a good one and take care.

Just got back from the tattooist’s,Well chuffed with his work i can tell you and only 2 and a bit hours under the gun,I was surprised how little it hurt being as my last one was over 20 years ago and hurt like hell. This time it was quite a pleasurable pain, if there is such a thing?

That’s the piece above,A nice centrepiece for what i have planned for a larger work. I have had it in mind for ages but when the shop opened just up the road it gave me the motivation to start. Well chuffed!

Anyroad i’m off to rub some soother in my back.Have a good one and take care.

Paddy’s Day

March 17, 2009

A spot of business up the town today and a few beers with my mate Douggie,not a bad day and a good result so we are both well chuffed, mind you we both forgot it was paddy’s day so a bit of a surprise to see a leipreachán serving behind the bar in the Bell, Fair play to um i say.

That’s all cuz im knacked and am gunna have a nod now. have a good one and take care.

After all this time..

March 12, 2009

Back to the factory tomorrow night after 20 days depressing is that?

Mind you i am incharge for the first two shifts so an easy way to get back to fighting spped eh?

That’s all for today..To fed up to be arsed.

Keep the dream alive.

Under the gun.

March 11, 2009

I have booked my two hours worth of pain up at the Tattooist’s for next Thursday, Dropped off my design today so i am well looking forward to that. He seemed chuffed with the design and quoted 120 quid for the job.Not a bad price for the amount of art work i reckon.

I am well into the Dark Tower audio books on my ipod,On book 3 at the moment and i can recomend um to ya,a good story so far and 5 more books to go.

Anyroad it’s time for a brew and a fist full of fags so i’m off.Have a good one and stay safe.

Barnze say’s.Message to the cunt who vandalised the statue of Robin Hood over the weekend..”Die ya bastard”.

Golly what a holiday..

As you can see from the picture of a Spanish tea bag wrapper gollies are alive and well in Lanzarote.

Just a bit about our hols..The Germans have some brilliant tashes so i can’t fault um for that and i reckon the old towel on the sun lounger game is well dead and gone. If you ever make it toPuerto Blanca in Lanzarote nip into Don Cammilos grill for the best mixed grill,I do a lot of grills me but i have to say this place did the best by a mile and with a jug of sangria and a bit of garlic bread one of the best meals i have had for ages.

Apart from being a bit sparse what with mountains and miles of solidified lava the island is a nice place to walk in, though what the locals did before tourism i don’t know..Scratched around to grow a few grapes i suppose. as for the all islands in the canaries the Canarian Potatoes are spot on,Cooked in their skins and boiled in sea water, giving um a salty taste,Nice with some red MoJo sauce..Gets ya mojo working if ya know what i mean?

The beach side eateries and bars are a lot quieter than the ones in Tenerife,A lot less sky tv and more on the wine and dine idea, For me that’s the way it should be! I would go there again but not in the summer as i reckon we picked the right time to go..Not to many folks about and no touts pressing for your money.All in a great place for a week in the sun.

Anyroad time for me to catch up on a few blogs so i’m off. Have a good one and take care eh?

Back in Blighty after a belting week away,Well tanned and chilled out i can tell ya,No time to post photos yet as i aint downloaded um, so later for that.

Not a bad day here in Hood Town with the sun shining and the start of what looks to be a good spring,The garden looks good after being away for just a week we can see that things are happening under the soil and we have a good show of crocus again this year so a bit of colour about already. The remnants of a load of nut shells is a good sign that the squrrells are having enough to eat so all is well on the garden front.

Now to get all the holiday clothes washed and put away for the summer break..Not long now!

anyroad i got shit to do so i’m off,i hope you lot are all well and safe out there? Have a good one and take care.
