A long cold winter

March 2, 2011

It has been a cold one over the last few months but i reckon its gunna be a good year,All is well at the factory and with 3 holidays booked the year is going well.

I have just about quit smoking now and am just on the odd cigar to stave off the cravings,We are now saving a few more quid so good time to be had with the extra wonga.

The grudge is alive and well inside me as some things just can not be forgotten,Mind you i have never been a forgive & forgetter……..You know who you are.

The garden is just coming back to life now and i am well looking forward to seeing how the big tree looks in leaf after it has been reduced and trimmed, Lets hope it reduces the amount of cleaning up we have to do in the Autumn.

I have got to sort out my driving test soon,So i have been boning up on the test with one of those PC base jobbies,Time will tell.

Anyroad i am off to marinade some chicken,Have a good one and take care out there.

Oh no the bamboo is on fire.

We had a great time last night setting off our fireworks,So good that we used um all even the ones i wanted to take to my mate Mass’s house…only one went wrong…A 16 shot jobbie that fell over and discharged it’s load into our bamboo plants, i thought we were gunna go up in flames but it was ok and made us laugh..A lot!

Back to the factory on Sunday night so those 12 days off have zoomed by and a long wait now till the winter holiday in February/March…The long dark nights!

A nice lump of rib eye steak for me n the lad and a lovely rainbow trout for Mrs B is on the cards for tonights meal,a bottle of wine and a nice unwind for Mrs B after a hectic week at the office. She is so lucky to have a bloke like me to pamper her.

Anyroad i am off to prep the dinner,have a good weekend you lot and take care.

Feel the pain..

I am still poorly…Mind ya aint everyone?

Mrs B has had her first sitting up at the tattooists and a good piece of art in the making,I shant say anymore until it has been finished but it does look like it is gunna be a good un.

Well up for bonny night as we get to do it twice what with my old muckker Mass having a get together the folowing Saturday.I do like a good burn me & we have plenty of fireworks for both functions. Mind you its only the family on the actual night and we aint let a banger off in years so i am looking forward to it.

The weather is shite at the moment and the wind has brought all the leaves onto the garden and the job of picking um up will soom be here if it keeps dry for a day.I do like playing with the leaf blower as it is a bit like the BFG from the game Doom. Come get some!

Mrs B is baking today so loads of tarts to get stuck into later…NICE!

Anyroad i am off for a shower.Hope your weekend was as good as mine.Have a good one and take care.

Circus passing by…

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?

A swift un.

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.

kicking back.

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.

Back in Blighty after a belting week away,Well tanned and chilled out i can tell ya,No time to post photos yet as i aint downloaded um, so later for that.

Not a bad day here in Hood Town with the sun shining and the start of what looks to be a good spring,The garden looks good after being away for just a week we can see that things are happening under the soil and we have a good show of crocus again this year so a bit of colour about already. The remnants of a load of nut shells is a good sign that the squrrells are having enough to eat so all is well on the garden front.

Now to get all the holiday clothes washed and put away for the summer break..Not long now!

anyroad i got shit to do so i’m off,i hope you lot are all well and safe out there? Have a good one and take care.

Are you looking at my bird?

July 21, 2008

This morning must have been a bumper bug day in our garden as we were visited by a crowd of birds in a feeding frenzy, it is good to see the long tailed tits back again as they are becoming regular visitors here. We are noticing the numbers rising as less and less of those flea ridden moggies enter the garden so i am well chuffed about that. I hate cats!

Kind of a salad feel to today so i am off up the shops for a bunch of veggies and some crusty bread later, hey there might even be some news on the new retailer..Then again maybe not as i was talking to one of the staff up at the Co-Op the other day and was told that they (The staff) would be told next week..All this excitement is killing me.

Anyroad i’m off to watch the tits for a bit. Have a good one and take care out there.

Great tits.

June 4, 2008

A lovely morning..the young Great / Blue tits are wittering in the tree and the parents are in and out for food for um. A joy to watch and a surprise that we have so many survivors owing to the amount of flea ridden cats stalking about..mind you a few well placed missiles helps!

We do well with the species of wildlife we attract here at Barnze Towers..Most of it down to the lovely Mrs Bs planting and planning of the garden, Mind you not many frogs n toads this year but still time for them to make an appearance. Grunt the hedgehog has been out most evenings clearing up the slugs n snails and it is good to see him fatten up each time we see him!

Not many squirrel’s about though but they only pop in on rare occasions due to there being plenty of food about for um and the fox ain’t been seen for months???

Anyroad i’m off for a chill down there among the bird and bees..Have a good one you lot!


A bit damp.

June 3, 2008

The garden is slurping up the rain this morning.with more rain to come so it’s a few days off just kicking back for me.Well with a few domestic jobs thrown in but what the hey?

Only a few week now till we nip off on our jollys and a well deserved break for us both..Then we are on the count down for the late summer sunshine break in Tenerife…Life is good. Still in the planning stages for our August break though..I fancy a few days in the Peaks..Nice and quiet, Fantastic scenery, Good beer,Good food & even better company.

Faggots,  mash n peas on the menu tonight so the old trump muscle will be on form later..yep i know it’s puerile but i like it.

I have the privalage of master Bs company for a few days as rain has stopped play at his place of work..Just what ya need when you are trying to kick back eh? A 20 year old in ya takes me forever to understand eh ya gotta love um.

Anyroad i’m off to blow the fuck out of a few zombies..Have a good one and stay safe.
