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.

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.

Under the gun.

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”.

Nice one.

 A good evenings entertainment at the Playhouse last night,Though the numpty sat next to me spent most of the time explaining to his partner what was going on, I am not sure who was the thickest between um! The play was well produced and the cast carried it off in style. Not much on there now that is up our street so we have to wait until the outdoor stuff at the castle in June. Mind you with the hols only days away i ain’t to fussed about getting withdrawn from a bit of culture with the promise of sunshine just around the corner.

We made the mistake of forgetting it was valentine’s day and lost out on booking a table for a meal so ended up have some pub grub in the local..Not all that bad but i would have preferred something a bit more up market if you know what i mean? I somehow knew valentine would be poking it’s nose into my life..Perhaps i should not have slagged him eh?

A treat for dinner tonight as the lovely Mrs B is cooking her lemon chicken soup (Though i call it a stew) with dumplings, One of my favorite meals and an extra portion is being made for the freezer to keep young master B in good food whilst we are away. Nice!

Anyroad enough crap for now as i want to look on the interweb at things to see and do in Lanzarote. Have a good on you lot.

Knee’s up Mother Brown..

February 11, 2009

I twisted my knee last night at the factory, just a wrong step and pop it went, now it’s as sore as a choir boys ring..Mind you it ain’t so bad as to keep my off work so i am in tonight for shift 3 of the last night shifts till the holidays.. It’s wrong to wish time away but i just can’t help it!

Bloody cold last night with a bit of sleet and a frost to come home to, I like the winter but give me the sun anytime eh?

We are off to the Playhouse at the weekend and i see in the press that we are up for some more outdoor theatre in the summer months so i reckon we shall be having a portion of that, Bad news on the theatre front is that as we shall be getting some sun on our backs in a few days we shall miss a performance of Poles Apart locally, Bit of a downer that as we had a belter of a night the last time we saw Dan & Mark perform, If you can get to one of the venues to catch um on tour get in there for a laugh. Too many folk ain’t getting enough theatre i reckon. Dig a ditch lads and good luck with the tour.

Anyroad it’s time i massaged my knee and got ready for my shift and with the weekend off with the Lovely Mrs B i reckon it will fly by.

Ain’t love grand!

Take care and have a good one.

Nice work i reckon. A piece by a local artist known as Questionmarc, There’s is more on his/her website. I am looking forward to a bit more content and will post up some of it that takes my fancy, Mind you the Nottingham Evening Post takes a grim view of it all,But what do they know?  I reckon that some of the graffiti here in Hood Town is spot on,Some good stuff to be seen from trains coming into town.

Have a good one and stay safe.

Bob Hood..What next?

January 15, 2009



Well i am well pissed off to read that the Tales of Robin Hood has now closed it’s door to the public for was never what you would call brill but it was a good place for the visitors to hood town to go. I still reckon that if the attraction was moved into the castle grounds it would make a few quid!

A new product for Mrs Bs dinner tonight..Tilapia fish…It looked good so i got one on today’s visit to Mozzers..Lets hope i cook it right eh?? Me n young Master B are sticking with the steak n chips option!

I have been reading up on our winter break hotel and it looks to be a good place and with only a few weeks till we bugger off it makes me feel good just reading about it.Bring it on!

Anyroad i am off for a brew.have a good one and take care out there
