Holidays and good times.

March 24, 2011

The first holiday of the year will soon be upon me,Well up for some sun and fun after a stint of falking hard work by both myself and the lovely Mrs B,We have been putting in some top efforts on the work front and are due some down time.

The weather is picking up here now (Today is spot on) and the sunshine brings a smile to faces that were grim just a month ago. The garden is shooting to life again and the wildlife is moving back in,The resident hedgehog came out for a wander a few nights back and is looking good after its winter sleep.Spring is a great time of year.

Good to see some top class reviews of my mate Dan’s play in the news he deserves the best after putting in a lot of work,Good luck with all you do mate. I am hoping that ” Our style is legendary” plays in its home town of Nottingham,I would love to see it played here and it would be good to catch up with Dan again.

Speaking of the arts i am well chuffed to see we are again going to be having some outdoor theatre up at Notts Castle, i shall be having a portion of that later in the year.

Anyroad its time i got stuck into prepping for dinner,Have a good one and stay safe out there.

Sunshine & Frost….

April 22, 2010

Looks good through the window of Barnze Towers but it is furkin freezing, Nipped out on the scooter earlier and just about froze my nads to the seat…Brrr.

Mind you St geos day tomoz and that herolds the warmer weather, And it is good to see the flags flying,its about the only time we get to celebrate Englishness owing to being English offending certain ethnic groups?????

Anyroad i am proud of my race so up ya bum with it.

Things are still changing at the factory and we are enjoying the new bits, Will be bob on once all the changes are in place i reckon.

My tribute to bad bosses everywhere....through a snipers scope.

I have now come to the end of the tattoo work on my back piece and will add a full shot photo when it has healed……Itchy!!!!!!!

Time to get stuck into the prep for dinner. Have a good one and take care out there.

Latin thought of the week.

Aliquando et insanire iucundum est.

Nads like walnuts.

December 1, 2009

Cold today,a frost n all that,Mind you forecast is ok so still on the scooter to work in the morning up to now,i could change my mind after looking out of the window in the morning!

We are having outside caterers in tonight so who knows what is on the menu,the world is your whelk when it’s takeaway night.

We were supposed to nip up to the tattooist today but Douggie could not make it,Mind you i still aint made my mind up on the last design for my backpiece,Tossing up between an axe on a grinding wheel and a hanging clown,Both tributes to someone special!

Anyroad time for a shave n all that so i’m off,Have a good one and wrap up warm eh?

Feeling better.

November 13, 2009

I am beginning to feel as if i am getting over this dragging illness,Mind you i have tried all the remedies going so i should be getting there.

What with the days off i should be good n proper for the next stint at the factory.Rest is a great healer. some good news as we have booked and confirmed our new years eve function at a hotel in Hood Town so that is something to look forward to on these dark winter days,The lovely Mrs B celebrates her birthday on new years eve and sadly the last two years i have had to work so we are well chuffed to be able to see the new year in and her birthday together this year.

The big changes at the factory that we thought were going to happen back in September are very close to coming in and a roster change will be very welcome,It looks like January now for the change,Another bonus to look forward too. So all is looking good for the new year!

Mrs B is booked in for the final session at the tattooists in the morning,and i am still pondering the last design for my back piece,Not a light decision so i and still torn between three designs …Drives me barmy to have to choose!!!!

Anyroad i got a bit of shopping to do so i am off,Have a good weekend you lot,I know i will.

Take care.

Feel the pain..

November 1, 2009

I am still poorly…Mind ya aint everyone?

Mrs B has had her first sitting up at the tattooists and a good piece of art in the making,I shant say anymore until it has been finished but it does look like it is gunna be a good un.

Well up for bonny night as we get to do it twice what with my old muckker Mass having a get together the folowing Saturday.I do like a good burn me & we have plenty of fireworks for both functions. Mind you its only the family on the actual night and we aint let a banger off in years so i am looking forward to it.

The weather is shite at the moment and the wind has brought all the leaves onto the garden and the job of picking um up will soom be here if it keeps dry for a day.I do like playing with the leaf blower as it is a bit like the BFG from the game Doom. Come get some!

Mrs B is baking today so loads of tarts to get stuck into later…NICE!

Anyroad i am off for a shower.Hope your weekend was as good as mine.Have a good one and take care.

Still alive..Just!

October 28, 2009

Still poorly,it’s been ages now and no sign of it going away,Mind you i slept like a log last night for the first time in weeks,I am taking it easy this week just catching up on sleep and keeping snug n warm.

Just back from the tattoists and am well chuffed with the knight,I will post photos when it has healed.Poor Douggie still has another session on his back so he is still not done,maybe next week mate..

I have a few days off now so plenty of time to rest up and try to shake this cold off,hot lemon drinks and losds of tele will sort it.

Anyroad i’m off to sort the dinner out,Have a good one and take care.

Back to the real world.

September 20, 2009

We had a belter of a holiday,good food,good drink,sunshine & a bloody good storm, We had a relaxing time and would recommend Alcudiato anyone, Our apartment was in the Bellvue complex and a good place to be, a pool and bar right outside our door..What more could ya want eh?

Mind you back to the factory on Monday night,And planning the winter break next week..The Canary islands are always warm so i reckon it back there..Fuerteventura is on the list..Never been to that one so something new eh?

I nipped into the tattoo studio and got the detailing done on the kangaroo and the Nottingham crest also had another piece put to follow.

Anyroad im off..gotta defrost the fridge in time for the new one to be delivered..Its all go aint it?

Have a good one and take care.

I can almost taste the sangria.

August 16, 2009

A bit of a hit n miss week at the factory,Some good some bad but it has been and gone now and with only two more week to work till we jet off who gives one eh?

I will be catching up with my mate Douggie for his 2nd sitting at the tattooists on Wednesday so i reckon a pint or 2 after will be in order, A few more weeks to go till i get my next session and i am looking forward to getting the detailing put onto my latest piece ,Roll on.

It is our anniversary on Tuesday 22 years of wedded bliss, Bad news is that the lovely Mrs B (Promoted to a higher position) is so busy in the office she cannot get the day off..We are setting aside a day of our holiday in Alcudia for some special moments..Mind you there will be some hand holding done on the big day so all will be well. I hope to get at least another 40 years of celebration in before i shuffle off this mortal coil, Mind you having a knees up when you are 90 odd don’t really thrill me but i will give it my best. Ain’t love grand?

Anyroad i got a bit of stuff to catch up on so i am off..More tomorrow.Hope your weekend was a good un.Take care.

Do we all hate Derby?

August 11, 2009

The last of the days off and back to the factory in the morning,Without Douggie on the team,Mind you i shall be catching up with him later today as he is booked in for a few hours work on his back piece at the tattooists today, Football related stuff going on his back..not my thing but that’s the way he is,Even worse it’s Derby County stuff,and that sticks in the craw of Hood Towns footy fans. Means bugger all to me though!

While Douggie is off work we will get a sub in to cover his work and we get to work with a new employee on Saturday,Still awaiting the changes but status quo for now.

The holidays are just four weeks away now and we are all looking forward to the sun lounger i can tell ya.

Anyroad i’m off to do some biz,then grab a few pints.. Have a good one you lot and take care out there.
