Do we all hate Derby?

August 11, 2009

The last of the days off and back to the factory in the morning,Without Douggie on the team,Mind you i shall be catching up with him later today as he is booked in for a few hours work on his back piece at the tattooists today, Football related stuff going on his back..not my thing but that’s the way he is,Even worse it’s Derby County stuff,and that sticks in the craw of Hood Towns footy fans. Means bugger all to me though!

While Douggie is off work we will get a sub in to cover his work and we get to work with a new employee on Saturday,Still awaiting the changes but status quo for now.

The holidays are just four weeks away now and we are all looking forward to the sun lounger i can tell ya.

Anyroad i’m off to do some biz,then grab a few pints.. 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.

Gravy for the pies….

Some good news for Notts County FC as a buy out is on the cards, i reckon my bro ( A big Notts fan) will be well chuffed about the news. It will be good to see the oldest football league club on the up again!

I nipped into the tattooists yesterday to book a couple of hours work on my back, I managed to get a slot on Wednesday so i am well chuffed about that. I may even have time to get a few more hours work done on my piece before we fly out for some RnR in the sun. 

The September Hols are booked and paid for……Alcudia in Majorca for a top up of sun to get us through to February then we start on the next Summers planing…NICE!

The lovely Mrs B is up at the hair dresses at the moment and i am awaiting the call to go and meet her for a spot of shopping so i am off..Have a good one you lot and take care !

Back and counting down.

We had a great time over in Malta,hotel was good,beer good,food good,timeshare touts shit,locals weird, All in a belter of a time..Now to think about the September hols..Back to Tenerife for a top up of sun i reckon.

If you ever get to Malta don’t miss visiting Mdina..I loved the place and wanted to spend the rest of my days there, The history just pulses out of the walls at you. Valletta was similar, loads of history over there and if that’s your thing you can’t go wrong.

Mind you the entertainment laid on by the hotel was shite..Honest we were lucky to hear a tune that came out of the 80s..All waltz stuff and loads of country & western stuff..Not quite my thing! I realise now just how much i hate line dancers..Nearly as much as cats…Oh not many feral cats over there so that was a bonus.

Anyroad a nice day here in hood Town so i am gunna get some more sun on my back..

Seven days and counting…

June 16, 2009

Just one week today and we will be off to the sun,Back to the factory tomorrow night for the night shifts then I’m done, The lovely Mrs B finishes on Friday so we are well chuffed. Lets hope for a good week eh?

The weather is nice today though rain is forecast there is no sign of it yet,Perhaps an hour on the patio is in order?

Another stabbing here in Hood Town over the weekend, How shit is that, You just never know when your time is coming nowadays eh? Is it ever gunna end?

A nice sight earlier today as a flock of Blue Tits swooped in on our bird feeders,odd to see really as we normally only get the one pair come in, and i managed to hit the big fat ginger cat on the back today, A well aimed lob with a bottle opener (All i had at hand) hit the mark,Meee Owwwww!

Anyroad i’m off for a shower,take care out there you lot!

Back to the floor.

June 13, 2009

Not a bad week for me at the factory,busy on the shop floor and i reckon i did a good job of steering the ship so all went well, Our gaffer is back next week and after those shifts me n the lovely Mrs B will be off on our jollys.

 

Here is another pic of the last tattoo,it just don’t give it justice but i reckon its a belter, i have been chomping at the bit to get the rest done and after the hols i will be booking some full days of work on my back,mind you i reckon that the pain will be a bit more intense than just an hours session but i just want to get the whole piece done as soon as i can,Mmmmm a full body job???

I have come to the end of The Dark Towerseries of audio books, A brill read/listen i can recommend um. i am about to start on Tad Williams “Otherland” series..They will see me through some serious sun lounger time i reckon.

Anyroad i reckon its time i caught up on a bit of Crysis so i’m off to frag a few foes. Have a good weekend you lot.

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.

Lap 2.With 2 to go…

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!

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!
