Grand times

September 23, 2014

alldancingWhat a great time we all had on our hols. it was realy good to get together and chill. i hope we get to do it again .

Now looking at 20 weeks of grey cold winter. Mind you a holiday booked for February so light at the end of the tunnel eh?

Changes to come at the factory but none as yet. We need a fresh view of what we do so i am looking forward to some new procedures.

Got a new camera whilst on holiday so a few new modes of taking photos are now at my finger tip. might even share a few snaps when i get out with it.

All in i i am on a high though life has a way of knocking you back but so far the world is kissing my chuddies.

Take care out there.

Having a knees up

May 20, 2014

street_art_banksy_london_england_3Well the time is going by a a good speed as our walking holiday gets closer.

We met our new bosses last week, they gave us a bit of hope of improvement in conditions so its a wait n see situation.. We have been here before so no holding breaths n that. The new mob seem to give a fuck so all is good.


My knee has been playing up for a few weeks now and I am thinking of getting a replacement done. Now I am old I can get it fixed. Bit  of a decision to make as my mates op dint go as well as it should and he is now having another op..

Tell ya what though it would be good to cut out the pain killers. Asnd get about pain free. I will make my decision when we get back from our holidays. See how I cope with the walks.  Mind you I do about five or six hours walking every day at work and that ain’t easy on my knee. We shall see!

Both Roxy and Frank are getting into mates mode now though they still have to rag each other up every day ( must be a dog thing) but on the whole they get on well.

Any road I’m off to watch Dark Star. A corny 70s Si fi movie.

Keep smiling.

Holidays and good times.

March 24, 2011

The first holiday of the year will soon be upon me,Well up for some sun and fun after a stint of falking hard work by both myself and the lovely Mrs B,We have been putting in some top efforts on the work front and are due some down time.

The weather is picking up here now (Today is spot on) and the sunshine brings a smile to faces that were grim just a month ago. The garden is shooting to life again and the wildlife is moving back in,The resident hedgehog came out for a wander a few nights back and is looking good after its winter sleep.Spring is a great time of year.

Good to see some top class reviews of my mate Dan’s play in the news he deserves the best after putting in a lot of work,Good luck with all you do mate. I am hoping that ” Our style is legendary” plays in its home town of Nottingham,I would love to see it played here and it would be good to catch up with Dan again.

Speaking of the arts i am well chuffed to see we are again going to be having some outdoor theatre up at Notts Castle, i shall be having a portion of that later in the year.

Anyroad its time i got stuck into prepping for dinner,Have a good one and stay safe out there.

February 25, 2010

Is that the end of the snow? Lets hope so , I am well ready for the spring i can tell ya. It is getting lighter in the mornings now and traveling home on the scooter after a night shift is getting to be a lot more fun as i can buzz up to Gotham to clear the cobwebs.

Not long now till we are getting some sun on our backs.

I only have the night shifts to do next week then i have 12 days off,Good news is the lovely Mrs B is off too so i reckon we will be getting in a visit to the cinema of a frame of bowling.Speaking of bowling it has been ages since i went with the Go-Lightlys,Mind you i reckon i am out of their circle nowadays…

After getting rid of the frozen snow i now hear that there is more to come,What about this Global warming they are always banging on about eh? Aint we here in England supposed to be warming up!!Seas rising and all that…Bolocks to that it’s perishing!

Mind you our thoughts are on the sunshine holidays..Just planning at the moment but its a good feeling looking at the temp guides on the interweb. I fancy a bit of a Greek isle this year..Ya never know Ken it may be your place this time.

Things are slowly changing for the good at the factory,though me n Douggie copped a loose bit of work the other day,a few more safety devices are needed.

The scooter has enjoyed getting out and about again but the starting problem is pissing me right off,Time for a service i reckon…No not church you fools!!!!

Anyroad i am off up the shops for a haircut and a bit of stuff for dinner….Thake care and stay safe out there,,Oh aint that DNA testing brill.

The White stuff.

The snow is causing havoc i reckon,we just dont cope well with it,I just get some crumpets,put the kettle on and look at it through the window.

A week off coming up and a nice few days with the lovely Mrs B..What more could i want???

The factory is plodding on at a steady pace and things are good,A few new systems to be up and running by the end of the month gives us a boost.

Anyroad i am off to rug up in front of the tele with Mrs B.keep warm you lot it’s cold 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.
