Exit stage left!

November 18, 2008

The street theatre was performing again last night as pissed up twats shouted and fell into the hedges of us normal folk..How come people get so pissed they have to shout at each other from a foot away?

To top it off nextdoor to us had some cavity wall insulation installed today and the noise of it woke me early so a rough night and an early morning did nowt for my mood.

Not a bad day though today and my mood lifted once i got to the shops,A bit of a stir fry tonight so not much prepping to do untill it’s time to cook.And to lift my spirits even more i managed to lob my slipper at that big fat ginger cat hitting it’s arse as it buggered off out of the garden..Nice!

Anyroad i’m off for a fistfull of fags and a bucket of tea.Have a good one and stay safe out there.

The yout of today.

November 12, 2008

Lets hope the Nottingham City Council approve the funds for the building of the “centre of excellence” here in Clifton,The young folks around here need something they can get involved in,And the rumour is that if the sale of the old Roundabout building goes through it will be a new Police station..Good news all round i reckon,Mind you i wouldn’t mind a chance of buying the old police station,I reckon it would make a brill home.

Not a bad day here in Hood Town today,a bit of sunshine and not too cold,My last day off so i am making the most of it and with Douggie off next week i ain’t looking forward to getting back to the factory i can tell ya.Mind you the lovely Mrs B is making the final plans for our late Winter hol so we have something to look forward to.Bring on the sun!

Anyroad i got the dinner to prepare so i’m off.Have a good one you lot and stay safe.

Stew Weather.

November 3, 2008

As the days get colder as we go on towards crimbo i have decided it’s stew time .. The pot is simmering down there in the kitchen and the smell is brill.we get a good couple of days feed out of that one pot and with a few dumplings in i reckon it’s one of the good things about this time of year.

It’s National Dyslexia week this week so thank fuck for spell checkers eh..not that i don’t use it all the time as my spelling is shite at the best of times..

A bit of a rough time coming up at the factory as we need to set on a couple of bods before the crimbo rush and i reckon we will be a man down for a few weeks at least..Shit happens eh?

Anyroad i’m off to stir the stew.Have a good one and take care out there.

In and out like Ronnie Biggs.

September 16, 2008

Just back from the dentists..Good bloke my man knowing that i don’t like the place i was in and out in 10 minutes minus a tooth and plus a numb face… All for under 50 quid…Mmmm i could think of a lot more i could do with that 50!

The above image was knicked from me mate Pinksy’s site, Kind of gives me one of those evil genius smiles to look at it as i never supported um and the crew in there hated me for it.. Fuck um. The rest of the shops here are making a packet at the moment as i hear the new Morrisons will not be trading until mid November, Not that it will bother us cuz we do our monthly shopping online and only use the local shops for fresh stuff, veg, fruit etc but i reckon that will change once Mozzers is up and running, A customer gain for them and a bonus for us as i do like to shop rather than key in my order. Bring it on.

As i am missing a tooth i shall be munching on a few wild mushrooms in a broth tonight while the rest of the crew enjoy some jerk chicken..I might be able to force a bit of it down me if i am lucky..i love jerk chicken me.

Anyroad the numbness in my face is easing off so i am off to take a couple of pain killers to ease the pain and nip on the settee for a bit of a nod. Have a good one you lot and take care out there. Oh i i managed to bowl a tomato at that filthy black cat today,I only wish i had a brick at hand. Meee Owwwww! I hope our resident squirrel has its fucking eyes out.

A pack of rats!

August 22, 2008

We are off for a night on the town tomorrow to see the Legends of Las Vegas at the  Sands in Gainsborough with an overnight stay in a romantic place..How lucky can one guy be?

The weekend is gunna be a good one, and from what the crew tell me the factory was a madhouse last week..a good one to miss i reckon. And double time for Monday as it’s a bank hol things are looking good !

As the building trade is taking a nose dive young master B has branched out into landscape gardening so we may find him a few jobs in our front garden as the lovely Mrs BA pack of rats. has ideas for a veggie patch..who knows?

No cooking for me tonight as we are having outside caterers in, good for me as Mrs Bs wheat intolerance is getting in the way of menus… Mind you a good meal is on the cards for tomorrow.

Anyroad i am off for a game of dommies..Have a good one and stay safe out there.

Help you i can.

I just had a call from Dave the belt.. I am to be his mentor during his training , Kind of comfortable what with us knowing each other and with his experiance i can’t see it being long before he is up to speed. It will be good to have him on our crew. ” Have a good holiday mate and see ya next week.”

The ruby is cooking away down in the kitchen and the whole of Barnze Towers smells great from it. We do like a curry though the aftermath leaves a bit to be desired if ya know what i mean?

The lovely Mrs B is entertaining a few of her colleagues her at Barnze Towers on Saturday night and with a bit of luck one of them will bring the next boxed set of the avengers for me..”Feel free to borrow any of my stuff mate”.

I hope that Douggie is back at the factory on Saturday what with our gaffer being off for the weekend the lucky bastard, Mind you maz is on with us so all should go well.

Anyroad i’m off to stir the curry..have a good one and take care out there.

Oh Ruby don’t take your bum to town.

June 13, 2008

Friday is here again and as i am not at the factory till Saturday night i reckon a good Ruby is in order..A bit of work but well worth it!

The last of my weekends at the factory for this month and with two weekends off next month things are looking good..Oh and it looks like we are going to get a new piece of Art..Britains tallest piece of free-standing art at that!!!! And it has been paid for by an anonymous benefactor so no cost to us..i like that idea.. Now i like art me so i am looking forward to seeing just what this thing will look like.Mind you towers ain’t my thing so i hope it ain’t gunna be an eyesore..Eye of the beholder and all that eh?

It’s good to see that we here in Hood Town are getting a new look what with the Market Square refurbishment and all that i reckon we are on the up..Just a few guns n knives to get rid of eh?

And what about Tuk Tuks as taxis here in the Hood? What a brill idea that is..I reckon they will do well, I could see myself going to work in one no probs…

Anyroad i am off to chop some garlic..Have a good weekend you lot.

Do they turn into prince’s

June 11, 2008

I spotted a frog out in the garden today so that’s good news. I reckon they will use our scrape if all goes well. it would be good to get some spawn in there! The Great tits have been in and out all day so i reckon they are nesting close by though i can’t see the nest in the garden? It makes me wonder if our resident hedgehog has been eating the frogs cuz i ain’t seen many this year and that is odd cuz the next door neighbour has a pond?

I supose it all comes down to the food chain eh?

Anyroad i’m off to get the chicken in the oven..Have a good one and be careful you don’t kiss a toad!!!

Pussy proof & proud!

June 11, 2008

Well i reckon we are now fully cat proof.And with a good stock pile of stones we are ready for anything..i reckon one of them cats must have laid an egg as i found a shell in the garden yesterday???? Must review the cctv when i get time.

It is good to see i can now post comments again on the Nottingham Evening Post website..i reckon some folks would have missed me on there .Eh Mike?

My mate Dave the Belt starts at the factory in the morning so good luck to him,I ain’t back till saturday night shift but i shall catch up with him when i start my day the week after. Dave should fit in well as we don’t perform like the old factory..no shafting going on , just hard work and a good laugh.. see ya next week mate.

i am cooking up some Southern Fried Chicken for tonights meal so not a lot of work to do there and i know that the family like it so we are sorted. A nice quiet night in with a bit of holding hands in front of the tele..Nice!

Anyroad i am off for a shower n a shave.Have a good one and take care out there.

Mallard!

June 4, 2008

I have just had a call from the lovely Mrs B telling me she is leaving the office early (one of the perks of being the gaffer.) so i have just bunged the duck in the oven and prepped the rest of the meal..Should be done for 18:30!

It is still nice outside and i have enjoyed a hour or two out there reading though now the local kids are home from school i have come in doors..Too much noise!

Good to see a bit of justice handed out in the papers today..Mind you some lefty twat will release this nutter out early you see.

Anyroad just a quick un before i get into the cooking so i’m off.

Have a good one and take care out there.
