Paddy’s day…

Well, my head feels like someone stomped on it repeatedly, so it must have been good…

Notice how I’d positioned myself right in front of the Guinness pump? my usual ‘seat’ is down the bar in the bar hatch (unwritten rule is you have to be able to do ‘dips’ with one hand either side of the hatch and your legs out straight to stand there – no fucker else can do it, so it’s MY place πŸ˜‰ )

Arse…

It’s Wednesday and I’m skint – Paddy’s day tomorrow and I have nothing to go out with πŸ™

*draws a line*

No more lending money out for me…

So, all you fuckers had better go out tomorrow and drink Guinness until it comes out your ears…and have a blinding time! πŸ™‚

EDIT: I may tap the boss up for a sub though…

A typical Monday…

Was a bit late in (only 20 minutes or so mind!) as I had a case of “can’t be bothered getting out of bed”, but soon got into the swing of things.

I was caught up in my work when Corina suddenly said “The clock’s stopped!” and indeed it had, at 8.45 (I’m not a clock watcher so I hadn’t noticed). Thought I may as well change the battery in it so took it off the wall, turned it over and there’re 4 batteries in it (world time zones etc.) which confused me initially – then I just took the battery from the New York clocklet and swapped that with the UK time (who needs to know the time in New York anyway?).

My Β£300 winning ticket from last week came at the right time – I need a new exhaust for my car. Funny how I seem to win money when it’s needed πŸ™‚ but fortuitous…

Beautiful sunny day here today – car was frozen slightly this morning, but it’s getting warmer – spring is in the air!

A friend advised me to drink less and eat more (along with exercise more too), so that’ll be Guinness sales down πŸ˜‰ not a bad idea though – in an ideal world, I’d like to put on about a stone, and keep my trim(ish) figure (no beer belly here – sit-ups get rid of THAT!). That way, when summer comes along, I’ll look pretty damn good for an oldie…

So, all I have to do, is work out when I’ll be eating my 5 meals a day, and what to have (I’ll draw up a rough ‘diet’ when I’ve got a few minutes) – no Arie, I don’t want your delicious looking lasagne 😐 but ideas for meals that’ll put some weight on me would be appreciated (I don’t eat cheese though – except on pizza, and I don’t like too much of that either…)

Break over – time to get back to work…

 

Monday, Monday…

Looking at my post count (and some of the comments πŸ˜‰ ), it seems it’s been a while since I posted.

Oh well…

Had a great weekend – spent it in London with Marina (there’s that name again). Friday night we spent in The World’s End pub in Camden Town – Friday night is music night, and the band was really good…few drinks there, then back to Marina’s (it takes longer to drive about 5 miles in London than it takes for me to travel by train home – about 65 miles).

Saturday started off very rainy, so we jumped on a bus (London public transport is great!) and went off to Islington and had a lovely pub meal in The York and watched the egg chasing rugby (very disappointing – England seemed happy to let Wilko kick us level rather than going for the killer tries – we ended up getting one anyway, so a result of 16-9 was good). A few pints of Guinness (for me – Marina had a mulled cider then switched to coffee – lightweight) later and we went to the cinema to see ‘Harry Brown‘ – great film, shows London’s estates as they really are πŸ˜‰ (I lived in New Cross, Lewisham a few years back for a couple of months). After the film, we went to another good pub (can you see a pattern emerging here?) – the Camden Head where we got rather drunk πŸ™‚ then back on the bus home…

Sunday was a great day – sunny and bright so we took a walk across Victoria Park and had breakfast watching the birds on the lake. I played with the squirrels (totally amazed Marina how I could get them so close and even on my shoulder πŸ™‚ – I’m good with animals, probably better than I am with people).

And so, back to work today – and guess what? πŸ™‚ I’m off to Spain tomorrow, back late Wednesday. Couple of hours work out there, then lots of me time in the sun topping up my tan πŸ™‚

I love my job…
