Sun,sand,surf and no children please.

June 11, 2007

It’s that time again when me n Mrs B hit the interweb in search of a sunny spot to chill in for a weeks holiday, The Greek isles again i think,Mind you there is sun to be had on ya back all over the place so who knows where we end up? A pool,good food,beer n wine on tap and somewhere to lay our heads is all thats needed,Oh and no kids if possible. A week of doing nowt but reading a book beside a pool with a cold one at hand..The ultimate chill.

Mind you that week is later in the year as in a few weeks me n the Lovely Mrs B will be aboard our cruiser amongst some of the best surroundings to be found,we are well looking forward to that i can tell ya. If your in need of a peaceful week then get yourself a boat on the Broads!

Anyroad as i am head chef today i gotta get out there and get some shopping,I wonder if the Co-Op have any woodcock?

Have a good one and take care out there.

I love the morning air.

Another hectic night at the factory but as luck would have it we had an extra bod on the shop floor so we managed to get through the work unscathed… Tell ya what..The mornings are really nice now that the sun is rising early and the skies are clear,a great time to sit and ponder i reckon !

Mind you with our boating hols being only a few short weeks away we shall be getting plenty of time to just sit n ponder…Nice.

Anyroad i’m off for a cuddle with the lovely Mrs B before i bugger off back to the factory.

Have a good one those of you with good intent!

Another brill night.

Apart from the lovely Mrs B tripping over a lose stair riser and cutting her knee at work we had a belting time last night,We started off with a pint in the Pitcher & Piano then up to the New market for another before getting in to Bentons for a top class meal,though Mrs B prefers her venison a little more under done (Still bleeding) than the way it was cooked, we both enjoyed our time there.

A nice walk home from the village green topped up the night good n proper.

Bad news is i am back at the factory tonight so the good time ends for me….Mind you the holiday is still on my mind keeping me feeling good.

Young master B rolled in just after 4 this morning and crawled out of his fart sack at 10 ish  with eyes like piss holes in the snow,but no do the young get all that beer down um with no aftereffects?

Anyroad i am off up the market for a bit of snap..have a good one dear reader.

Oh & here’s the foot shot of last nights crossing of the market square….

Adding insult to injury….

Well it has been a tough week i can tell ya…I got my arse kicked at bowling,I got man flu and felt as rough as fuck,and the working week has been a bastard but i made it!!

I had a call from my tribunal man with an insulting offer to call the tribunal off,not happy with that so No Deal,Then another offer insulting me even more so No Deal,Now we are only a few days away from the day in court and i am well looking forward to it!

Barnze says “We all have a price”!

Mrs B has the same flu like symptoms as me and the added bonus of an aching tooth so we have both been sleeping badly this week and are both well ready for a week on the boat kicking back n doing as little as poss for a bit,Only a few weeks till that comes around ! It never fails to recharge the body batteries does a week on the water,Mind you for a full recharge a week in the cottage in the peaks really does ya some good so i reckon we will be off up there soon un all.

The end of my last shift was lifted yesterday with a call from Mrs B saying she would be meeting me in the Bell for a swift one before going home,Always a good way to end the working week i reckon!

Anyroad i’m off for a brew,Have a good one those of you with good intent,The rest of you can fuck off!

Ok i lost………………

May 25, 2007

I was shit at bowling the other night,lost 2 frames won 1,So another slice of the humble pie for me eh!!! Your a better bowler than i am Mrs B!

As it gets nearer i am well looking to getting away for a week on the water,with now’t to do but chill.Bring it on!

Anyroad break is over so it’s back to the factory floor for me,have a good one.

Still together after all this time.

Me n my cyst have not parted company,The doc said it was too big a job for him so he has booked me in at the hospital,mind you he said it could be viewed as cosmetic and they might just leave it be,No probs for me so i shall wait n see what happens on the day.

So my bowling will be on top form tonight & the big trophy will be mine again!!!! Then again i sometimes let Mrs B win to keep her spirits up,It’s the kind of bloke i am and the difference between a bagga chips or a nice meal!

Anyroad me n my lump are having a fag n a brew,Have a good one & stay safe.

Only a few week till me n the lovely Mrs B board our love boat on the broads so we are looking forward to that,I reckon ya can’t beat the UK for a rest full holiday just the weather that can bugger it up but i like boating in the rain so no probs there. Mind you for a bit of sun on our backs we are nipping over to warmer climes later in the year,Where we end up is anyones guess at the moment but wherever it is we shall spend a lot of our time under the sun.

More bad news as we get another stabbing just up the road from Barnze Towers,Another life in the balance and another stat to log in the books eh?

Anyroad i’m off to enjoy the rest of my day off,Enjoy the rest of your day dear reader,Take care.

The boating holiday is booked now and i must say i am well looking forward to it,If you have never done one give it a go,very relaxing once you lay off the ale a bit.

Cheers to the bus driver this morning for getting someone to give me a nudge at the bus stop opposite the village green this morning as i was fast asleep,nowt worse that waking up in Loughbrough after a night shift i can tell ya! Mind you i reckon somebody had a shit in my mouth while i was asleep!!!

I read today that another “proposed scheme” to sort out the problems on the A453 is on the table,Those schemes have been passed about since i was a kid at infant school and nowt has been done!

Set up a congestion charge,In fact set up some fucking great gates and charge 50 quid a go or better still send all the traffic through Beeston,even better bulldoze Beeston and make it a park n ride site,that will teach up to whinge about the proposed new bridge over the Trent (They reckon were all criminals),we won’t need a bridge then. Look at all the money i just saved the government!!!

Anyroad remember piracy is a crime and stay safe !
