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.

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.

Gone but not forgotten..

A bit more ferret news just in..This morning as the lovely Mrs B was getting ready for her day at the office she sat on the patio enjoying the early morning sunshine when out came the ferret. she lobbed a bit of meat to it and came up with the idea of leaving a trail of meat into the shed to lure it in..well it worked and in it popped to be locked in By Mrs B, A call to the RSPCA and this afternoon they came and took it away. drama to rid ourselves of the bison grazing under the fuchsia! The ferret will be missed though, i kind of took a shine to it!


A steady shift last night though a bit of a bastard trying to sleep on such a warm day but i ain’t moaning cuz i like the sun.

Anyroad time i get sorted ready for the next shift..have a good one and stay safe out there.

The boys are back in town.

Here we are again at the half way line and a good couple of shifts behind us..our gaffer is back after his weekend off tonight, and it was brill to have Douggie back on the shop floor (Still a bit swollen but the exercise is doing him good.) and he is glad to be back as he was going out of his crust sitting at home, mind you it did give him time to watch Roots,the boxed set he borrowed off me early last year!!! Thank fuck for that eh..i reckoned he had sold it…

On the art front, work is ongoing on our new piece and it looks to be ready for the 14th of July..I am still not sure about it but i reckon it has to be seen to be appreciated eh?

An artists impression of the new artwork..A bit like those artist impressions of trousers you get in the Sunday papers..not quite the real thing eh?

Anyroad it’s time for a brew before i set off for another shift..I hope your weekend went well dear reader.

Have a good one .
