Sometimes the interwebs come up with some amusing stuff…

There I was yesterday, debating whether to goto Wembley to watch Spurs v Barcelona (ended 1-1), looking at ticket prices online, and came across this gem:

Wembley Cup

And for those that don’t get it, here’s the Urban Dictionary definition:

Change at Baker Street (v).

During intercourse, to decide to play the b-side. From the only station on the London Underground where it is possible to change from the Pink Line ( Hammersmith & City) to the Brown Line (Bakerloo ).
“I tried a change at Baker Street last night and she kicked me out on my arse.”

So there you have it. I’m off to see Kathy now – enjoy your weekend!

A great weekend…

Kathy came down Friday (her birthday), so it saved me doing the 1.5 hour drive each way…

And so – took her for a meal Friday night – was very nice :). I even took her shopping in Cambridge on Saturday, AND Inever complained once (heh – earnt myself mucho brownie points there let me tell you…)

Another meal and a few drinks Saturday night, and onto Sunday…

Decided to goto the Royal Oak in Hail Weston for dinner – as Ewa (my lodger) was around, I asked if she wanted to come too. So off we all went.

Lovely meal (as always), couple of beers sat out in the garden – excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Within an hour of getting back home, I got a text from Harriett – she used to live in Hail Weston, and her mum still does. Anyhoo, her mum had popped round to Harriett’s to tell her that I’d been seen in the pub with TWO women…and neither of them were Harriett! Shock! Horror! other exclamationed (is that a real word?) remarks!

And now it’s Monday…but at least I’m in work…

Off to Sweden tomorrow with a night stopover there too – the U21 Championship final (England v Germany) is tonight though – bollocks.

The sun is out…blue sky…

And I’m sat in the office.

Sigh…but it’s not all bad πŸ™‚ I mean, at least I’m working – this alone is good for a Monday.

Had a great weekend (again). And it didn’t involve huge amounts of beer – more the company I guess πŸ˜‰

It seems I’m over my back problem (well, for now) – good job really ‘cos I have some slabs coming tomorrow which I need to lay in the garden (must remember to book tomorrow off). Funny that – I finally got around to mowing the lawns and generally tidying up, now I’ve got the gardening bug…

Kathy’s down this weekend coming – it’s her birthday πŸ™‚ of course, being the gentleman I am, I can’t tell you her age…just that I’m a toyboy lol πŸ˜‰

Back ache and sciatica

Anyone who has had back pain resulting in sciatica will agree with me when I say: “It fucking hurts!”

Basically, the idea is to treat the sciatica with drugs (woo!) and exercise to ‘move’ the pain back into the lower back, where, after the intense pain of sciatica, it feels like nothing.

Or something like that…

Anyhoo…after a couple of weeks of pretty bad pain, I think I’m finally through it – well, it’s not unbearable now, and I fully understand that once you mess up your back, you’re pretty much messed up for life. Sigh.

Seems to be going really well with Kathy – didn’t get to see her last week (we all went out in town to commemorate 1 year since Lee died – RIP mate), so I’ll be down this weekend πŸ™‚

Works out quite well actually – I’m down in Gatwick Monday, so looks like I can stop over at hers, and go from there Monday morning (saves me battling the traffic on the A1 in the rush hour)

Nag, nag, nag…

So I don’t post for a couple of weeks…I can think of one recently married woman who’s not blogged in a while – not mentioning any names bu’er.

Well, I’m starting to REALLY enjoy tolerate nettle tea now – and it really does seem to ease hayfever symptoms. Tesco have sold out so a lot of people must like it or something…

Well, I had a great weekend – spent it down with Kathy et famille ‘dahn sarf’ (septics will have to google it πŸ˜‰ ), weather was great (not too much sneezing etc.), stunning countryside (look, we don’t have hills around here – I’m just not used to them), and the company was, as ever, just great. Weekend started really on Saturday with a sword fight in Westgate, St Neots* where I lost a limb…well, almost…well, I came close to losing a limb…as close as you can get when the swords are made of foam πŸ™‚ fun though πŸ˜€

I should have bought a crocodile at a car boot sale. I saw it, and wanted it, but figured it’d be too expensive – without asking. Sigh…don’t think the cat would have liked it though…and how many people can say they’ve bought a crocodile at a car boot sale? I mean, I DID buy a crocodile’s head off eBay…but that’s different πŸ˜€

~~~ subliminal message ~~~

You want to buy a Ford Galaxy, 7 seater. Great condition, low mileage…email me.

~~~ end of subliminal message ~~~

And here, just to freak you out, are a pair of freaky eyes – bonus points to anyone correctly identifying them…I’ve had them lying around for ages and they’re getting dusty…



I’m gathering quite a collection of computers in my lounge again – up to 5 plus a laptop’s usually sitting in here somewhere…my record is having 7 all up and running, networked and running various operating systems – I’ll have to redo that one with the computers spread all over the house and wireless (not sure my old Macs will do wireless, but it’s worth a look…) – I think I’ll stop short of putting computers in the toilets though, if I ever start using Twitter, my entries would read like Scaryduck‘s blog: “done a poo”.

And with those words of wisdom, I’m off for a bath…ciao πŸ™‚

*I’d just like to add, that as far as I know, no pubs were hurt (not that I know of) during this violent episode in a shop.


What a beautiful Monday morning! πŸ™‚

Ok, that’s enough sarcasm…

It IS a nice day right now, but looks like rain – and oh boy, do I want it to rain. I’m suffering from hayfever and it’s making me miserable (nothing to do with having no sex this morning AT ALL).

Had a great weekend – spent it down with Kathy πŸ™‚ this means I missed the barbeque that Dennis and Ewa hosted at mine Friday night…this was worrying as I got no calls/texts Saturday so I was thinking the worst…house is still standing though.

Here’s a pic of Kathy (she’s the one with the smaller nose):


Oh, and football…Man Utd stole points from Spurs on Saturday with yet another dodgy refereeing decision – Gomes clearly got a hand to the ball, so there should never have been a penalty against Spurs. Without that, Gomes would have kept his cool and we’d have gone on to win the game. End. Of. Story.

I’m not allowed to say that Kathy a certain person is a witch – she merely predicted the correct score.

It’s only a game…

EDIT: So, apparently nettle tea is a ‘cure’ of sorts for hayfever. Well, it may be, but I couldn’t find any…I have nettle and peppermint tea, which I can reliably inform you is; TOTALLY FUCKING RANK!

This has been a public service announcement.

Oh, and it’s fucking hayfever you bastards – stop telling people I have swine flu!

It's me again!

Been a couple of weeks since I blogged eh?

So sue me πŸ˜‰

Anyway, not a lot’s been happening – spending my weekends with Kathy πŸ™‚ and the week at work…well, except for yesterday. Seems my back problem hasn’t completely gone, the last few weeks I’ve been getting ‘twinges’, so I’ve been taking anti-inflammatories and painkillers to keep it in check, but yesterday – oh my god…I got up as usual, had more pain than usual so took it easy for a bit with a coffee while the painkillers kicked in…only they didn’t πŸ™ I was in agony.

So I did what any sane person would do – called in sick at work, took more painkillers, wedged myself into a comfortable position in bed (stop sniggering at the back!) and stayed there all day (and was it boring).

That rest seems to have stopped the rot though – still got pain today, but it’s bearable pain. So long as I don’t do too much moving around, or lifting, or climbing, I should be ok. If it gets too bad, I’ll just go home again.

I don’t like being ill – especially when the nurse is so far away πŸ˜‰

*ninja edit*

Happy days

Well, I’m happy πŸ™‚

No, I’m VERY happy πŸ™‚

Got a new woman in my life and it’s going very well…very well indeed.

I was supposed to be going onto a 3 day week at work, but it seems that’s just a smokescreen of some kind – we need to downsize in our workshop and having the guys all thinking my hours have been reduced has them all wondering if their jobs are safe. On the plus side, this should mean productivity is up – time will tell.

Anyway, Kathy’s away for the week down in Cornwall (now THAT’D be a long drive if I were to go see her…) – our second week apart after my week in Morocco (did I mention I’d been to Morocco?). I’m off to Spain a week on Thursday for the day – testing at Ryanair in Girona, then bringing back as much tobacco as I can carry ‘cos it seems no-one is selling any in town nowadays so I’m gonna jump into the market and make a few quid πŸ™‚

Weather’s slowly turning nice – and I’ve got bloody hayfever πŸ™ looking at a pollen calendar, it seems I’m allergic to Ash and Birch tree pollen – should die out in a week or so though πŸ™‚ just in time for a trip to Spain, and then see Kathy (must book a couple of days off…)

And that’s about it…
