June 5, 2009

 

A bit of a mixed bag of events at the factory this week,But at the end we done and dusted um all.Nice to do a good job  and come out smiling eh?

A nice steady week for me on the next block of shifts as i am the gaffer..Ivory towers and all that.

Good news today as the holiday tickets come through the letter box.Always good to have them in ya mitt, I have been following the weather forcast in Malta and it looks to be a warm one.

Bad news is its gunna be a bit overcast here in Hood Town over the weekend so i reckon it’s holding hands in front of the tele for us,Nice!

Anyroad i am off to meet the lovely Mrs B from the office and grab a bit of something for dinner,have a good weekend and take care .Oh and life means life eh?

Bustin out all over.

Flaming June..And a nice start to the month what with the sun shining down and only 12 shifts to work until the hols..How good is that?

I suppose it is too much to ask for an easy ride during the next few shifts but ya never know,Its our gaffers last week before he buggers off to Barcelona for a spot of culture and sun,The lucky bastard..It kind of rankles when his hols come before mine. mind you whilst he is topping up his tan i will be the gaffer,my feet are gunna enjoy the week off i reckon.

Not a lot to do today,return Mrs Bs book to the libuary (And pay the usual late return fine) then i reckon an hour on the patio copping some rays will be in order,Hey ya have to relax before work eh?

Anyroad i am gunna grab a brew before setting off,i hope you had a good weekend,Mine was a belter.

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.

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!

Lap 2.With 2 to go…

Half way through the working week and with Maz off on her hols and Big Man in her place we are having a tough time of it,one of the busiest stints for a long time, Mind you only five week till we jet off on our hols so a good light at the end of the tunnel eh?

I have been folowing the weather over there in Malta..27 degrees today..Nice, rain and overcast here in Hood Town!!

Anyroad i am off for a shower,I hope your Monday went ok,Have a good one and take care.

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!

Notts Vegas.

Another chance for us here in Hood Town to dig our toes in the sand as the Market Square becomes a beach again this year, A good idea i reckon,Mind you it has to be kept clean,Nowt worse than sticking ya bare foot in a used nappy buried in the sand.

The weather has turned to shite again,rain,wind and cold again..Makes me want more for a week in the sun..

I nipped up to the tattooist’s today and booked an hour for next Thursday,I still haven’t got around to getting a photo of part two so when i have had part three done i shall post up a pic, Part four is already for doing but i reckon it will be after our holiday,I don’t want to be scabby whilst i am away!

A nice bit of Pollock for dinner,Ya can’t have to much fish n chips i reckon,We had a ruby last night so something a bit lighter today eh!

Anyroad it’s time for a brew and i have to get the spuds pealed and chopped so i’m off. Have a good one and stay safe out there.

A swift un.

May 12, 2009

That’s the working week behind me and with a few cold ones out the front of the pub last night a good end to another hard week, now a few days off and a good start as i did not wake up till well after half ten today,I have been well looking forward to catching up on the sleep i can tell ya.

Outside catering tonight so no cooking for me..Nice!

Off out shopping with the lovely Mrs B on Friday,Mind you i had best slip on the kevlar vest as there is a sniper about in Bulwell not quite what you want while you are shopping.

Good to see the sun shining and the garden looking good,i even managed to get a little fat guz-gog of my bush before the birds and bugs got to it,The whole garden is in tip top condition (All Mrs Bs work) thanks to my watering skills.

Anyroad i am off for a brew now,Have a good one and mind you don’t cop a pellet in the eye if you are out and about in Hood Town.

Drill or pliers?

An appointment with the dentist today, i have put it off twice since Feb but they phoned me yesterday to remind me ( Nice of um!) anyroad after a few mins in the seat i was away, only to get a call from them to say i had buggered off without paying, ha ya bastards! Bad news is i gotta go back tomorrow afternoon so an early finish to my first day shift and a jump up and down from the boss…Hey it’s gotta be done!

Another cat shooting here in Hood Town and some funny comments of the local papers website, Seems i am not the only one who hates cats!

Not a bad week coming up what with a few pints after the last shift then me n the Lovely Mrs B are off shopping on Friday for a few bits for the holiday, it wont be long now..

Anyroad i’m off for a brew and an hour on the patio,a nice day so a bit of time in the sun with an Audiobook is in order. Have a good weekend and don’t be fooled eh!

A scabby week.

May 5, 2009

Another tough week at the factory, Mind you we did get Douggie back for the last shift so that one went a bit better, Now for a few days off and a bit of quality time.

The crew are off out after our last shift next week, now the weather is picking up we can nip down the road for an alfresco beer. It’s what Summer is made for i reckon,A cheese n onion cob and a pint after work!

The new tattoo is still a bit scabby so no pic yet, But as soon as it looks it’s best i shall post one up, What with Jax asking to see it and me chomping at the bit for stage three to be done, I am literally itching to get on with it.

I was well chuffed to see that Saturday night Sunday morning has been digitally remastered now.One of my faves is that,Mind you a bit biased owing to it being set in Hood Town ( Mind you some of it was filmed in London. ) but a classic i reckon, Go on treat yourself and buy a copy.

Anyroad i’m off to Mozzers to sort out dinner,Have a good one and as Arther Seaton said ” Don’t let the bastards grind ya down.”
