Oh well

December 24, 2009

A good nite out last night and we all enjoyed ourselves…You always get a good meal at Antalya’s . a pint to round off the night then home to the warm. Down hill today. Ya can’t have it good all the time.

I know its the season of goodwill to all but some out there can kiss my arse.

Anyroad i’m off to bang my head against the wall,Have a good crimbo most of you.

Feeling better.

November 13, 2009

I am beginning to feel as if i am getting over this dragging illness,Mind you i have tried all the remedies going so i should be getting there.

What with the days off i should be good n proper for the next stint at the factory.Rest is a great healer. some good news as we have booked and confirmed our new years eve function at a hotel in Hood Town so that is something to look forward to on these dark winter days,The lovely Mrs B celebrates her birthday on new years eve and sadly the last two years i have had to work so we are well chuffed to be able to see the new year in and her birthday together this year.

The big changes at the factory that we thought were going to happen back in September are very close to coming in and a roster change will be very welcome,It looks like January now for the change,Another bonus to look forward too. So all is looking good for the new year!

Mrs B is booked in for the final session at the tattooists in the morning,and i am still pondering the last design for my back piece,Not a light decision so i and still torn between three designs …Drives me barmy to have to choose!!!!

Anyroad i got a bit of shopping to do so i am off,Have a good weekend you lot,I know i will.

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.

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.

Golly what a holiday..

As you can see from the picture of a Spanish tea bag wrapper gollies are alive and well in Lanzarote.

Just a bit about our hols..The Germans have some brilliant tashes so i can’t fault um for that and i reckon the old towel on the sun lounger game is well dead and gone. If you ever make it toPuerto Blanca in Lanzarote nip into Don Cammilos grill for the best mixed grill,I do a lot of grills me but i have to say this place did the best by a mile and with a jug of sangria and a bit of garlic bread one of the best meals i have had for ages.

Apart from being a bit sparse what with mountains and miles of solidified lava the island is a nice place to walk in, though what the locals did before tourism i don’t know..Scratched around to grow a few grapes i suppose. as for the all islands in the canaries the Canarian Potatoes are spot on,Cooked in their skins and boiled in sea water, giving um a salty taste,Nice with some red MoJo sauce..Gets ya mojo working if ya know what i mean?

The beach side eateries and bars are a lot quieter than the ones in Tenerife,A lot less sky tv and more on the wine and dine idea, For me that’s the way it should be! I would go there again but not in the summer as i reckon we picked the right time to go..Not to many folks about and no touts pressing for your money.All in a great place for a week in the sun.

Anyroad time for me to catch up on a few blogs so i’m off. Have a good one and take care eh?

Nice one.

 A good evenings entertainment at the Playhouse last night,Though the numpty sat next to me spent most of the time explaining to his partner what was going on, I am not sure who was the thickest between um! The play was well produced and the cast carried it off in style. Not much on there now that is up our street so we have to wait until the outdoor stuff at the castle in June. Mind you with the hols only days away i ain’t to fussed about getting withdrawn from a bit of culture with the promise of sunshine just around the corner.

We made the mistake of forgetting it was valentine’s day and lost out on booking a table for a meal so ended up have some pub grub in the local..Not all that bad but i would have preferred something a bit more up market if you know what i mean? I somehow knew valentine would be poking it’s nose into my life..Perhaps i should not have slagged him eh?

A treat for dinner tonight as the lovely Mrs B is cooking her lemon chicken soup (Though i call it a stew) with dumplings, One of my favorite meals and an extra portion is being made for the freezer to keep young master B in good food whilst we are away. Nice!

Anyroad enough crap for now as i want to look on the interweb at things to see and do in Lanzarote. Have a good on you lot.

Knee’s up Mother Brown..

February 11, 2009

I twisted my knee last night at the factory, just a wrong step and pop it went, now it’s as sore as a choir boys ring..Mind you it ain’t so bad as to keep my off work so i am in tonight for shift 3 of the last night shifts till the holidays.. It’s wrong to wish time away but i just can’t help it!

Bloody cold last night with a bit of sleet and a frost to come home to, I like the winter but give me the sun anytime eh?

We are off to the Playhouse at the weekend and i see in the press that we are up for some more outdoor theatre in the summer months so i reckon we shall be having a portion of that, Bad news on the theatre front is that as we shall be getting some sun on our backs in a few days we shall miss a performance of Poles Apart locally, Bit of a downer that as we had a belter of a night the last time we saw Dan & Mark perform, If you can get to one of the venues to catch um on tour get in there for a laugh. Too many folk ain’t getting enough theatre i reckon. Dig a ditch lads and good luck with the tour.

Anyroad it’s time i massaged my knee and got ready for my shift and with the weekend off with the Lovely Mrs B i reckon it will fly by.

Ain’t love grand!

Take care and have a good one.

I remember the face.

Me n Dave the belt nipped into town for a catch up with a few of the old faces last night..it was good to see most of un though 1 or 2 of um ain’t on my crimbo card list if you know what i mean..Took some restraint on my side not to abuse um. Mind you when it came to pub move me n Dave ended up in the wrong pub..Lucky for me i reckon. Oh and why do grown men have to pass around mobile phones amoungst um sens? Fucking grow you twats. Just tell the joke..I don’t want to read the thing from a phone!!!

A Bowling night is in the planning though Dark n Devious will be in the dugout with a buggered leg..Perhaps he can bowl with one of those kiddies frames?

Douggie call a bit ago regarding a bugger up in our wages..250 quid light this month??? He is on to the union as i type..

Have a good weekend  you lot..I’m working again! ARSE!

Pals, Haircut n empty shelves.

September 1, 2008

We nipped out for lunch with the family yesterday, A few pints and a meal with some chat made for a good afternoon..even the rain never dampened our fun. Mind you it is summer so we should have known it would rain.

Not long now till me n the lovely Mrs B are getting some sun on our backs and looking at the forecast we are in for some. Nice!

I managed to catch Speedy in today so a quick buzz over with a number one blade sees me ok for the holidays and a quick look around the empty shelves in the Co-Op has made me smile..I hear that the bingo place is to be knocked down to make way for redevelopment but i reckon that’s bollocks,Still we shall see eh?

Anyroad i am off to wander through the interweb for a bit,have a good one and take care out there.

A pack of rats!

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.
