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.

Quiet please.

We had a great time last night setting off our fireworks,So good that we used um all even the ones i wanted to take to my mate Mass’s house…only one went wrong…A 16 shot jobbie that fell over and discharged it’s load into our bamboo plants, i thought we were gunna go up in flames but it was ok and made us laugh..A lot!

Back to the factory on Sunday night so those 12 days off have zoomed by and a long wait now till the winter holiday in February/March…The long dark nights!

A nice lump of rib eye steak for me n the lad and a lovely rainbow trout for Mrs B is on the cards for tonights meal,a bottle of wine and a nice unwind for Mrs B after a hectic week at the office. She is so lucky to have a bloke like me to pamper her.

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!

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.

Circus passing by…

August 17, 2009

The street theater is well on form today,what with the pot bellied neanderthal man shouting at his kids and the reply from the gollum like child of  “Fuck Off “, i just know that this shite will go on into the night. Mind you we have been lucky the last few weeks so i can’t moan….Can I ?

I spent a bit of time pruning one of our trees today and ended up covered in spiders and bugs to the point where i had two yes two in my mouth..They don’t taste good i can tell ya. The tree looks better for it but it has put me off doing the job again!!

A nice piece of smoked haddock and mash for our dinner tonight so there should be a bit of wind about as there is a large portion of mushy peas alongside of it..I do like the fart joke,Puerile i know but i like purile me.

Anyroad i’m off to peel the spuds.Have a good one and take care eh?

Ally ally aster,

July 17, 2009

Rain…More rain and a bit of drizzle, What happened to the heatwave the met office promised us eh? Mind you it’s good for the garden so not all bad news!

A nice lump of rib eye for my dinner tonight and a fresh rainbow trout for the lovely Mrs B,A  hedgehog potatoe and some sugar snap peas to round it up and sorted.

I have just read about this senseless attack on a bloke pushing a pushchair with his eight week old daughter in it..How fucked is that eh? Who would do something like that? Nothing and no one is immune from this kind of attack nowadays, i reckon you have got to be some special kind of nutter to do that kind of thing. Lets hope the attacker gets whats due eh?

Anyroad i’m off to slash my spuds. Have a good weekend and stay safe .

I have got crabs..

May 15, 2009

Have you ever prepared a cooked crab? Disgusting i can tell ya,I normally get a dressed crab ready to eat but the shop had none so i got myself a whole one,What a load of mucking about that was,I ain’t doing that again,What with having to rip it open by hand n all that, Loads of mucking about for very little meat. Mind you i have seen it done in a proper shop by the sea and they bang um out in a matter of seconds, Perhaps it’s just me?

Me and the lovely Mrs B did some shopping today,i got myself a couple of shirts for the holidays,Mrs B got bugger all! And it rained then hail then a cold wind..When is the summer gunna start?

Anyroad i am off for a crab sarnie,Have a good one!

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
