February 14, 2010

Good news..Its getting lighter in the mornings,On the way home from the factory this week after the night shift i am driving into day light,Only a glimmer but it makes me feel good i can tell ya. An end to the winter gloom and a herold of the spring.Bring it on.

Things are still in the flux of change at the factory so we are all waiting for the final stamp before things realy start to roll.

Anyroad back to work…See ya in a bit.

One more sleep…

Off out for the pre holiday haircut today.Ya gotta get down to the wood when you are gunna get some sun on your nut.All over with the number one blade and only a fiver,now that is a bargain,I am not sure if my old barber Speedy is still working now as the new barbers seem to have taken all the custom, Way of the world i reckon!

I was just looking out at the bird feeders and i reckon the birds are getting through 3 maybe 4 kilos of feed a week from us alone, as all the feeders are full of birds and about 20 more birds forming a disorderly queue to get on um. Those folks selling bird food are on to a winner!

Anyroad i am off to get my hair cut,i might get my throat cut whilst im there.

Have a good one,Oh and thanks to the gaffer for the call yesterday to see if i could work the night shift last night…..What do you think?

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?

Seven days and counting…

June 16, 2009

Just one week today and we will be off to the sun,Back to the factory tomorrow night for the night shifts then I’m done, The lovely Mrs B finishes on Friday so we are well chuffed. Lets hope for a good week eh?

The weather is nice today though rain is forecast there is no sign of it yet,Perhaps an hour on the patio is in order?

Another stabbing here in Hood Town over the weekend, How shit is that, You just never know when your time is coming nowadays eh? Is it ever gunna end?

A nice sight earlier today as a flock of Blue Tits swooped in on our bird feeders,odd to see really as we normally only get the one pair come in, and i managed to hit the big fat ginger cat on the back today, A well aimed lob with a bottle opener (All i had at hand) hit the mark,Meee Owwwww!

Anyroad i’m off for a shower,take care out there you lot!

A Lovely Day.

How nice is it to have the sun shining down eh? Gives me a chance of topping up the tan in prep for the holiday. Mrs B has nipped up to the hairdressers for the holiday trim then we are off into Hood Town for a spot of shopping,might even grab a cold one in the Bell if i behave…

Also it is good to see frogs back in the garden,Lets hope that they and the hedgehogs scoop up all the slugs and snails eh? The garden  is looking lush now that we have had a few days of sun on it,Mind you those of you with lawns will be cursing it as the grass grows so fast that you can almost watch it grow.

Anyroad i’m off for a shower then into town,have a good weekend you lot and enjoy the sun.

The nature of the beast.

May 28, 2009

A very busy week at the factory and we all put in that extra bit to see the job through, And i reckon all of us were well looking forward to these days off! i dint get up till 11 today so i must have been running on empty on my last shift eh? Only the night shifts to go then our gaffer is off on his hols then it’s my turn to jet off.

 Planning is ongoing for the September hols and the added bonus of young Master B coming along with us is yet another target to aim at,Mind you i think we have something in planning for our anniversary in August?? Life is good.

Bad news on the streets of Hood Town as another victimof the gun dies, and another gets stabbed, I must say it gives me a feeling of dread when young Master B is out on the town,Well you never know what you are gunna walk into do ya?

Good news on the garden front as Grunt our resident Hedgehog has shown his face, Mrs B spotted him the other evening (I had gone to bed early) trundling around the garden scooping up snails. i hope we see some new borns again this year,It’s good to know that we are doing our bit for nature.

Oh and my lastest piece of skin art is looking good now the scabby bits are coming away, I am off up the tatt shop on friday with Master B,he is getting some of those crappy tribal things put on,Whilst i am there i shall discuss the ways of getting a longer session on my back to get it done quicker.

Anyroad i got a bit of shopping to do for tonights dinner so i’m off, Take care out there!

kicking back.

April 26, 2009

The days off are here again after what has been an unusually tough week of day shifts,No drinks after work this week due to the shifts ending on a Saturday and us all wanting to spend some quality time with our loved ones..Next time on days the whole crew will be up the pub for a debrief and a few pints after the last shift..Nice!

It is good to see the garden in full bloom again and the bugs, birds and the rest of the wildlife taking advantage of it,Even my Guz-Gogs are getting fatter..Soon be picking and eating them before the birds get um.

A few chores tomorow and my tattoo on Tuesday so i reckon plenty of chillin time in between should do me some good. Every day brings the holiday nearer eh?

Anyroad i’m off to look at some interweb..Have a good one and take care out there.

Not quite the champ…

April 12, 2009

News just in..Went bowling yesterday.lost.Nuff said! Mrs B is the bowling champ & i have had to give her the trophy (For now)..I am happy to play today for a re match but no takers..If i were match fit i would have won but i have been poorly and am on some special cough medicine and it threw me off my game..Well done to the lovely Mrs B for taking advantage of a sick man. oh and thanks to jesus for the easter eggs.

 

 

 

Cheers to Zeltergiest for the pic…

Good news is we have another day off together tomorrow so it’s all good.if the weather is good we are off for a walk down the Grove,a nice place to spend a bit of quality time i reckon.

Androad i’m off to hear some more gloating about the bowling…Have a good one and don’t eat to much chocky eh?

A chill,a bit of justice & a splash of colour.

April 10, 2009

A busy week at the factory but the days off are here again,and a public hol so i have two extra days with the lovely Mrs B. Mind you the weather is shite so the trip to the seaside is off and either Bowling of the Cinema is in order with a meal out on the town thrown in! Such is life.

I was well chuffed to read that some DNA testing has found the killer of Colette Aram who was killed back in 1983 just up the road from me..This DNA thing is a fantastic tool i reckon and it’s good to see such a crime get it’s man. A bit of a shock for the bastard that killed her after nearly 30 years down the track eh? Let’s hope justice See’s him do his time. bring back hanging i say!

On a lighter note it’s nice to see colour popping up in the garden after all the work Mrs B has put into it,The whole garden is getting to be a better picture every passing day,Mind you we still have the odd flea ridden stinking cat coming through..mind your paws on that broken glass now!

Time for me to toddle through a few pages of the interweb now so i’m off,Have a good few off and take care.
