The found weekend.

November 20, 2009

The rest days are here again and a weekend off with the lovely Mrs B is to be enjoyed,And after a bleak, rainy,dark working week we are both looking forward to it,A roaring fire and a nice meal will soothe away the weeks graft i reckon.

Did you see that programme The execution of Gary Glitter the other week? I reckon it was brill and as one of the 54% of this country’s population in favor of the death penalty i reckon it must have poked a few thoughts into the heads of the other 46%.You still have a bit of time to watch it by clicking the link above,I must add that i have been to two of Gary’s concerts in the far distant past and he was the leader, a brilliant entertainer..Shame you turned out so wrong Gary,Even more of a shame you are still predating!

Onto a more lighter note crimbo is only a few weeks away and i have the luxury of being rostered off this year,i wonder if there will be anything in my stocking,i have been a good lad all year…..Honest i have!

Anyroad i have some shopping to do for tonight’s meal so i am off, Have a good weekend,snuggle up and keep warm with the one you love…That’s what i am gunna do.

Take care and stay safe,

Job done.

That’s it for work for 20 days..Holiday time is here again. Not a bad week and with Douggig back all went well. Now to get fully into the holiday mode.

Oh and the winter break to plan.its all go here at Barnze Towers i can tell ya.The lovely Mrs B only has four days at the office this week then we are set for the off.

The weather in Alcudia is a steady 30 degrees and i can almost taste the sangria.

Anyroad i have some stuff to catch up on so im off,Have a good one !

Done n dusted.

Another working week gone by and news of a few changes in management, All for the better if you ask me, nothing official as yet but some changes for the common good coming up, I like change me, kind of gives a bit of extra motivation i reckon, more on this as things unfold but the rose tinted glasses are ready for wearing again i reckon! Life is good. Oh and a reduction in working hours would be nice boss…

Douggie is on holiday next week and Maz is back from hers so we still have a hired gun on our crew for a while, it gets like this every year during the summer months, we all need holidays eh? Mine ain’t to far away now!

Changes at the lovely Mrs Bs office also so it’s all on here at Barnze Towers..Hey a few extra quid never goes amiss eh?

The new tattoos are healing well so i shall post a pive of the full work once it has all come good.

Anyroad i am off up to the shops for a few items that i have forgotten,Mrs B asked me to pick up a few things yesterday but i have no idea what she asked for!!!! Hey i have been to bed since then! I shall ring her to ask what the hell i am supposed to get.

Have a good one you lot and take care out there.

That was swift…

The last shift is here and the other 3 flew by, Mind you we were kept busy so no time to clock watch, The rest of the crew are getting pissed off with my “Only 8 weeks to go” shit, Regarding the next holiday but as Douggie is off on the next block of night shifts & the gaffer being off when i get back from my hols i suppose i shall get it poked back at me .

I managed to bump into the lovely Mrs B during my shift on Friday as she & Master B just happened to be passing, I even managed to grab a kiss, Serendipity.Oh and i passed a few wise cracks at Master B but he took them on the chin.

Back up to the Tattooist on Wednesday so i am chuffed with that,Time to feel the burn again, i am not sure about the design yet as the tattooist has the designs with him but a 2 hour stint should see some headway on my piece. Picks will be posted later.

Speaking of picturs …. Here is a foot shot from my latest holiday.

Have a good one and stay safe.

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.

That’s that then.

Crimbo been and gone,I hope you lot had a good one,i was working most of it so mine is starting now,The factory was busy over the hols and both me n Douggie came away with aches n pains but well up for our days off,all we have to do now is get the new year shifts out of the way eh!!

Mind you the winter hol is not to far in the future so there is allus something to look forward to eh?

I ain’t had a lot of time to post and catch up on the rest of the worlds postings so i am gunna be browsing a bit today..With a chunk of crimbo cake in my mitt!

You lot have a good and safe New Year and take it easy on new years eve eh.

All is good.

Well that working week soon went by and with this being my last shift i am well chuffed it went without owt to talk about apart from a scattering of snow that barley covered the ground and a dead magpie on the roof nowt much to mark it as a bad un.

Me n the lovely Mrs B will both be off at the end of the week so a bit of crimbo shopping is in order..i like shopping for prezzies me. Oh and the final destination for our winter hols has been found and holiday booked..Lanzarote… Never been there before so well up for it! A place on the south end of the island for an all inclusive doss sounds good to me.

So all good news…Mind you i aint counting chickens,As Monday night shifts have allus been a bit of a bastard for us so fingers crossed we have a good un.

I hope most of you had a good weekend.Stay safe you lot.

Blast from the past.

Not a bad start to the working week and now on day two things are rolling along at a steady pace, Mind you the thought of our gaffer sunning his arse in Malta sticks in my craw…Lucky bastard!

Douggie was ill yesterday but we blundered through,Today he is back but not at 100%, But he made it in and that’s what counts, I bumped into an old work colleague Bob Hill yesterday..He still has a face like a weasel licking piss off a nettle but i enjoyed a bit of a catch up with him.

Anyroad it’s time for a brew then back to the grind..Have a good weekend you lot.

A good week.

July 28, 2008

A nice steady week at the as fuck though but a few meemo’s and cold drinks kept us going. Good to see the weather is still sunny today as i am going to give it some patio this afternoon, might even have a beer or two while i am at it!

The holiday season is coming up at the factory so we will be having some new staff on our team as each of us bugger off on our jollys,Our new holiday cover person packed in the job after only 5 days..Just shows how tough it is i reckon. i have a week off next month and the same in september..I love time off me.

Some bad news on the Robin Hood front as the new movie “Nottingham” has had it’s production stopped!! Bastard! i was looking forward to that unall???

Anyroad i am off up to pull the piss out of the staff in the Co-Op then i am gunna get some sun on my back.

Have a good one you lot and take care out there.

Poor parking…Made me smile.

July 18, 2008

Well we are half way into this weeks stint at the factory and all has gone well so good news there..even better news is some daft fucker on one of those mobility wagons has managed to drive under a lorry here in Hood Town..Laugh or what? Ban the fucking things i say!

Not disabled..Just a fat fuck!

Still no news from the Co-Op about the changes but no news is good news eh? I bet some of the deadwood staff there can feel the grim reapers breath on their necks.. Soon …It’s coming soon!

Oh and it seems someone in long Eaton as a cat shitting in his garden big time and is getting his revenge…Can’t fault him really.

Anyroad i am off for a bucket of tea and a fist full of fags.

Have a good one most of you..
