Holidays booked..Cases at the ready.

March 25, 2009

Our holidays are now booked and paid for and only a couple of months to go till we fly out to Malta, We have booked a week all inclusive at the Qawra palace hotel..Roll on i say.

The scabby bits are now coming away from the tattoo though it aint at its best just yet.I  have been looking up some designs for the the next piece though i still haven’t decided which one to go for.. Don’t choice just wind you up????

Not a bad week at the factory though we lost our latest team member due to a major fuck up by him ..The replacement team member is traing up this week and will be with us on Sunday night for some on the job training..It’s been a funny few months for us what with the last three noobies not making the grade..Let’s hope this one cuts the mustard!

Some good news on the Robin Hood front as Vanessa Redgrave signs up for Tarantino”s new film..Looking forward to that one.

Anyroad i’m off to look up places for the winter hols. Have a good one and take care.

I have booked my two hours worth of pain up at the Tattooist’s for next Thursday, Dropped off my design today so i am well looking forward to that. He seemed chuffed with the design and quoted 120 quid for the job.Not a bad price for the amount of art work i reckon.

I am well into the Dark Tower audio books on my ipod,On book 3 at the moment and i can recomend um to ya,a good story so far and 5 more books to go.

Anyroad it’s time for a brew and a fist full of fags so i’m off.Have a good one and stay safe.

Nice work i reckon. A piece by a local artist known as Questionmarc, There’s is more on his/her website. I am looking forward to a bit more content and will post up some of it that takes my fancy, Mind you the Nottingham Evening Post takes a grim view of it all,But what do they know?  I reckon that some of the graffiti here in Hood Town is spot on,Some good stuff to be seen from trains coming into town.

Have a good one and stay safe.

Bob Hood..What next?

January 15, 2009



Well i am well pissed off to read that the Tales of Robin Hood has now closed it’s door to the public for was never what you would call brill but it was a good place for the visitors to hood town to go. I still reckon that if the attraction was moved into the castle grounds it would make a few quid!

A new product for Mrs Bs dinner tonight..Tilapia fish…It looked good so i got one on today’s visit to Mozzers..Lets hope i cook it right eh?? Me n young Master B are sticking with the steak n chips option!

I have been reading up on our winter break hotel and it looks to be a good place and with only a few weeks till we bugger off it makes me feel good just reading about it.Bring it on!

Anyroad i am off for a brew.have a good one and take care out there

Closed due to lack of interest..

Credit Crunch with milk and sugar.

I have just been reading about how the so called Credit Crunch is affecting us here in Hood Town with the Tales of Robin Hood on the brink of collapse.. How crap is that eh? I never really thought the place was all that good but we do need it to stay open..Perhaps a move up into the castle grounds will do it some good???

 Oh and nipping into our local Wollies was an eye opener yesterday.. They have even sold the shelving??? Mind you i must say that over the years i must have spent well over 20 quid in there so no loss to me,Bad news for those who have lost their jobs though.

As i have been getting a few Migraines/Headaches lately Mrs B is going to book me in for an eye test (It could be a tumor) to see if my mincers are at fault, And with 2 pairs of glasses for 75 quid i reckon now is the time to go blind.. I reckon i will go toSpecsavers!!!

I missed out on catching up with Ken the Bubble due to me working and him & his family having to travel around visiting family, Maybe next year i will visit you mate,Hey ya never know?

Anyroad time i continued my search for some free Goon Shows..Have a good on and keep watching the skies..Their here!

No shit Shirlock.

So the Nottingham city council are now thinking of a Robin Hood logo to promote Hood town,After throwing away 120 grand on the wonkey N, Get your act together will ya,Did the people of Hood town tell you they wanted it when you buggered about with the logo last time.

The above picture is from a pub i went to last year in Lloret,Instant Hood town recognition i reckon.Bring  Robin back to Hood town with pride!

I have read that hedgehogs are in decline so i am well chuffed to say that we now have two resident spikey friends as we now have a youngster snuffleing around the grounds here at Barnze Towers, Our adult Hedgepig Grunt has given birth for the second time in three years. The lovely Mrs B sees to it that they are fed and watered every night so we are doing well with them. And keeping those bastard cats away does um good unall!

Anyroad i’m off for a brew,Have a good one you lot and take care out there.From Hero to Zero.

Alas poor Robin. Take a bow!

September 18, 2008

Some bastard has nicked half of the bow from the Robin Hood statue up at the castle.Why the fuck would ya want to distory that ? I rackon a bit of cctv up there is a must. the time i have been up there and the arrow is missing pisses me right off. Get a fucking grip!

Back to the factory tonight for the start of four night shifts, And with our gaffer only working two of um it will leave me in charge so i am hoping that we get a good crew on, i must say i ain’t missed the place over the last twenty odd day that i have been off so i gotta get myself back in the zone . Roll on the next holiday is what i say!

I passed to Co-Op building today and it was good to see it closed and work ongoing for the refit.Goodbye and good riddance to it..

I am off to polish my boots..Have a good one and enjoy the weekend you lucky folks who ain’t working it.

Armitage shanks..

Another poor victim of Hood Towns thuggery lies in a hospital bed today and another twat out on the street bragging his crimes.. what the fuck is wrong with folks today eh ?

And this daft twat is back in the news again..Bang him up ,Age is no excuse to be above the law.

What the fuck is wrong with folks nowadays eh? Seems to me that the whole of society is on it’s way down the toilet..A few twats have allus been about but now it looks like every street has one, we need a Robin Hood to put things right..Any takers?

Cabbages and kings.

Yesterday we recieved our copy of the Clifton Local News , Some interesting stuff in there this month.Take a look at the classy Chantelle’s coments on the Tram Debate.. Nice one Chantelle you are one of Cliftons diamonds.

I see that the supermarket take over of Sun Valley is back on the planning board again..Bring it on i say we need shops not bingo halls for unemployed dossers to hang out in.

Me n the lovely Mrs B are off up to the castle today for a relaxing day.I hear there is a market on in town so we may grab a bite to eat up there whilst we are about. And a pint in the trip will be nice unall.

Anyroad time for a showers then off into town..Have a good weekend most of you!

Oh and finaly someone offered me eight legs of venison for 70 that too deer?

Well the weather has been brill over the last few days and the factory was boiling..Mind you the air con in the office had a service yesterday and we managen to get down to a cool 17 degrees so that was good and the boss brought us a slab of coke to chill for our afternoon break so all was well.

If this heat keeps up i reckon me n the lovely Mrs B will have a belting weekend! So many more options for a day out when the sun is shining..I fancy a bit of a walk around Wollo park, Perhaps grab a meal in the wheelhouse on the way out..Or a bit of a picnic up at the castle and a pint in the trip. Spoilt for choice i reckon.

Up late today after one too many ciders last night..I forgot just how much a hangover hurts..A few cups of tea soon put me right though!

Time for me to nip up the shops so i’m off, have a good weekend you lot and take care out there.
