That hurt !!!!!

August 7, 2009

A tough week at the factory and still one more shift to do..We have had it all on i can tell you and to top it off i sprained a finger on a bit of work last night, Ouch..Now i am strapped up, Mind you i have four days off coming up so i have time to rest it up.

Only four weeks till our holiday so good news there,My muckker Douggie is off for the next two weeks so bad news there for us,Good for him though..I will be catching up with Douggie next week as he is up to the tattooists for some work on his back,I wonder if there will be a discount for me for introducing him to my tattooist? Worth a try i reckon.

I am looking forward to some quality time with the lovely Mrs B as this week we have only seen each other for a few minutes each day..Work gets in the way sometimes eh? Ships passing in the night and all that! Mind you at one time in our lives work was so much in the way that we communicated via notes for a few months..How shit is that?

Anyroad it’s time to take another painkiller and get off to work. Have a good weekend and take care.

A stabbing pain in the back.

July 31, 2009

Just back from the tattooists and now have the outlines of the next threes pieces on my back,I shall get the detail work done after my hols (Only a few weeks to go) so i am well chuffed. Mind you i am a bit sore as the new pieces are scattered over my back making it feel like an allover burn.The whole piece is looking good now,i tried to take some photos but i could not manage it on my own so i will get Mrs B to take a few snaps later then i shall post um up.

I am off out tonight to meet up with the lovely Mrs B and a few of her work collegues for a few pints beside the canal..i love the summer nights and for once this week it aint raining!!!

Last week went well with two days intensive training on some new procedures and the remainder of the week at the factory,We are still awaiting news of more changes and my fingers are crossed for a shorter working week.

Anyroad its time for me to get sorted for tonights beer bash. Have a good weekend you lot and stay safe.

Is that it?

Wow the weekend went by fast eh? Mind you each passing day brings the holiday a bit closer, The last holiday of the year and a long wait till March i can tell ya,Still ya gotta keep looking forward eh!

The lovely Mrs B has her decorating head on and is busy painting down there in the South wing,Doors are changing colour and i did notice a few spots of paint on her legs, Can you tell what it is yet?

Me n Douggie are off on a two day training course Monday n Tuesday so only two shifts on the factory floor this week,Hey we might even grab a pint on the way home!

Oh and i have booked an hour at the tattooists next Friday,I cant tell you what is going to be put on next untill we work out from my designs the next piece,needless to say the pics will be posted later.

Anyroad i’m off to grab a shower, I hope your weekend lasted a bit longer than mine..tempus fugit. Have a good un.

Where have i been?

July 24, 2009

Not much time spent here in Blogsville the last few days..Busy doing other shit and no spare time,but its all done now and i am back.. all to do with winds of change…..

We have a two day training session next week,some new techniques to be practiced and yet another certificate to earn. I like to get as many of those things in my folder as i can.a bit anal but they do look good i reckon.

I will be good to spend a bit of quality time with the lovely Mrs B this weekend as we both have had it all on at work over the last few weeks and deserve a break from it all.

My back is fully healed now and i may have time for one more piece of art stabbed into it before we fly off on our hols…..Mind you there is the dilemma  of chosing the next design…Only about 6 to chose from but i would like it to ballance well if you know what i mean?

Anyroad i am off to catch up on a bit of reading of blogs n that so i am off,I hope you have a good week end, i know i will.

 Take care and stay safe.

Done n dusted.

Another working week gone by and news of a few changes in management, All for the better if you ask me, nothing official as yet but some changes for the common good coming up, I like change me, kind of gives a bit of extra motivation i reckon, more on this as things unfold but the rose tinted glasses are ready for wearing again i reckon! Life is good. Oh and a reduction in working hours would be nice boss…

Douggie is on holiday next week and Maz is back from hers so we still have a hired gun on our crew for a while, it gets like this every year during the summer months, we all need holidays eh? Mine ain’t to far away now!

Changes at the lovely Mrs Bs office also so it’s all on here at Barnze Towers..Hey a few extra quid never goes amiss eh?

The new tattoos are healing well so i shall post a pive of the full work once it has all come good.

Anyroad i am off up to the shops for a few items that i have forgotten,Mrs B asked me to pick up a few things yesterday but i have no idea what she asked for!!!! Hey i have been to bed since then! I shall ring her to ask what the hell i am supposed to get.

Have a good one you lot and take care out there.

Sore but happy.

Another piece of skin art today, A large piece down my spine and it hurt like hell i can tell ya, i shall post some more photos later, Needless  to say i am chuffed to bits with it and the latest one has brought together the whole thing, it’s looking good and with only a few more designs to go i reckon the end result will be bob on! a few weeks off from the tattooists now to give my sore back time to heal…Cheers Steve..Nice work.

A bit of a crap photo but i took it myself and it aint easy taking a snap of ya back!

Back to the factory in the morning for the start of the day shifts, I ain’t to keen on weekend shifts as i reckon weekends should be spent with the lovely Mrs B, Mind you with the holiday just a few weeks off i reckon i will cope.

Anyroad it’s time to prepare dinner so i am off, Have a good weekend you lot and take care.

And another piece slots in.

July 9, 2009

 The next piece of my tattoo has been done,no pics yet as i am on my own and ya can’t photograph your own back, but it looks good, booked in for an hour tomorrow so i shall post a pick of the full work (In progress) when i get back.

Nice to get a bit more done though i reckon that will be it for a few weeks due to it costing a bomb and i have the holidays to pay for..I am hoping to have the full piece done for crimbo though i do have a load of designs i would like i reckon i will have to stop at the full back job. But then again!

A sticky day today,grey skies and very warm… Kind of shit sleeping weather if you know what i mean?

Anyroad it’s time to run the dyson around the great hall.. Have a good one and stay safe.

Another piece of the jigsaw.

July 8, 2009

Just back from the tattooists and well chuffed with his latest work,I have got another sting booked for tomorrow so things are moving on. The picture as usual does no justice so i will get another posted when it has healed.

I will be a few more sittings from the finished piece but i can’t wait to post the picture of the end result!  Oh and yes it did hurt!

I am now folowing the weather in Majorca just to keep the spirits high for the holiday, Not long now!

Anyroad i got shit to do so i am off, Have a good one and take care.

That was swift…

The last shift is here and the other 3 flew by, Mind you we were kept busy so no time to clock watch, The rest of the crew are getting pissed off with my “Only 8 weeks to go” shit, Regarding the next holiday but as Douggie is off on the next block of night shifts & the gaffer being off when i get back from my hols i suppose i shall get it poked back at me .

I managed to bump into the lovely Mrs B during my shift on Friday as she & Master B just happened to be passing, I even managed to grab a kiss, Serendipity.Oh and i passed a few wise cracks at Master B but he took them on the chin.

Back up to the Tattooist on Wednesday so i am chuffed with that,Time to feel the burn again, i am not sure about the design yet as the tattooist has the designs with him but a 2 hour stint should see some headway on my piece. Picks will be posted later.

Speaking of picturs …. Here is a foot shot from my latest holiday.

Have a good one and stay safe.

Gravy for the pies….

Some good news for Notts County FC as a buy out is on the cards, i reckon my bro ( A big Notts fan) will be well chuffed about the news. It will be good to see the oldest football league club on the up again!

I nipped into the tattooists yesterday to book a couple of hours work on my back, I managed to get a slot on Wednesday so i am well chuffed about that. I may even have time to get a few more hours work done on my piece before we fly out for some RnR in the sun. 

The September Hols are booked and paid for……Alcudia in Majorca for a top up of sun to get us through to February then we start on the next Summers planing…NICE!

The lovely Mrs B is up at the hair dresses at the moment and i am awaiting the call to go and meet her for a spot of shopping so i am off..Have a good one you lot and take care !
