The needle.

October 19, 2009

Back up to the tattooists in the morning,More work on my back and perhaps a bit of work on my upper arm. My mate Douggie will be up there after me for some work on his Derby footy badge. Some folks have no taste!

Mind you we can grab a pint after and if my evil plan works Douggie will be paying.

The lovely Mrs B is part way through decorating the study here at Barnze Towers so things are all over the place at the moment but i reckon it will be spot on when she has done,We have got rid of a lot of junk though i have to keep an eye on my stuff just incase Mrs B bins it…

Anyroad i am off for a shower so thats all for today.Take care out there and stay safe.

Job done.

That’s it for work for 20 days..Holiday time is here again. Not a bad week and with Douggig back all went well. Now to get fully into the holiday mode.

Oh and the winter break to plan.its all go here at Barnze Towers i can tell ya.The lovely Mrs B only has four days at the office this week then we are set for the off.

The weather in Alcudia is a steady 30 degrees and i can almost taste the sangria.

Anyroad i have some stuff to catch up on so im off,Have a good one !

A lovely night..

August 19, 2009

The lovely Mrs B and myself spent a quiet night in with a nice meal and a couple of bottles of champers last night. Remembering things that had passed and looking forward to things to come. I must say that the past 22 years have just zoomed by..Something to do with age so they say! I reckon we have loads of adventures to get through in the future so bring um on.

I had a call from my mucker Douggie earlier telling me that his mother in law had passed away after a long illness..Chin up old lad,look after the family and keep smiling.

That’s the bad bit about getting older..Folks die around you! Mind you i would not want to live forever,Unless i stayed aged 30 or something.

Anyroad it’s my last day off as i am back on the night shift tomorrow, Time goes by so fast when you have a good craic. Take care out there and love your loved ones eh?

Some bad news..

August 18, 2009

My mate Douggie’s mother in law is not well at all, bad news that is, i hope all goes well for him and his family. It can be a hard time coping with that sort of thing.

My thoughts are with you mate.

I can almost taste the sangria.

A bit of a hit n miss week at the factory,Some good some bad but it has been and gone now and with only two more week to work till we jet off who gives one eh?

I will be catching up with my mate Douggie for his 2nd sitting at the tattooists on Wednesday so i reckon a pint or 2 after will be in order, A few more weeks to go till i get my next session and i am looking forward to getting the detailing put onto my latest piece ,Roll on.

It is our anniversary on Tuesday 22 years of wedded bliss, Bad news is that the lovely Mrs B (Promoted to a higher position) is so busy in the office she cannot get the day off..We are setting aside a day of our holiday in Alcudia for some special moments..Mind you there will be some hand holding done on the big day so all will be well. I hope to get at least another 40 years of celebration in before i shuffle off this mortal coil, Mind you having a knees up when you are 90 odd don’t really thrill me but i will give it my best. Ain’t love grand?

Anyroad i got a bit of stuff to catch up on so i am off..More tomorrow.Hope your weekend was a good un.Take care.

Do we all hate Derby?

August 11, 2009

The last of the days off and back to the factory in the morning,Without Douggie on the team,Mind you i shall be catching up with him later today as he is booked in for a few hours work on his back piece at the tattooists today, Football related stuff going on his back..not my thing but that’s the way he is,Even worse it’s Derby County stuff,and that sticks in the craw of Hood Towns footy fans. Means bugger all to me though!

While Douggie is off work we will get a sub in to cover his work and we get to work with a new employee on Saturday,Still awaiting the changes but status quo for now.

The holidays are just four weeks away now and we are all looking forward to the sun lounger i can tell ya.

Anyroad i’m off to do some biz,then grab a few pints.. Have a good one you lot and take care out there.

Good on ya Ronnie.

Ronnie is out to die a free man..Bout time too i reckon.

Enjoy the time you have left old lad & thanks for the memories.

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?

July 26, 2009

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.
