Another great weekend

Saturday was spent laying concrete at my mum’s (that would be Bob and me) in the hot sun – at least we had a mixer this time (good job too, we used 1 tonne of ballast!). Got most of it done now, just a little bit more to do next weekend. Mum fed us too – woop, woop!

Sunday I went to London with Lisa and the girls (Carys and Kira). Was a lovely day wandering about, visiting The Clink and SeaLife.

Kira winds her mum up by saying “I’m hers” – here’s the pictorial proof:


EDIT: I changed my favicon too – it’s now an icon-sized version of this:

It’s Friday!

Woop, woop!

Had a good day in Hahn yesterday – got the job done in about 3 hours and had 4 hours to myself before I could could check-in (I was on standby and had to wait for everyone else to check-in before I could be guaranteed a seat).

The weather was lovely so I decided to take a walk into the village about 1km from the airport, find a bar/cafe and sit there for a while and practice my (incredibly bad considering I took it for 2 years at school – but that was a LONG time ago*) German.

However, since the Americans moved out (Hahn used to be a USAF base), it seems the money went with them – the villagers all seem to be making (little) money by using their gardens as cheap airport parking.

I did find a hotel there though, and had a lovely lunch sitting in the sun, then wandered back to the airport to sit on the grass and soak up some rays πŸ™‚

I did manage to get on the flight (I got the 5th of 7 available seats) and was back home by 7.30pm…makes a change to not drive back from Stansted in the dark.

*Yes Lisa, I’m VERY old 😐

My weekend…

Well, rather than do any work, I decided to meet my l’il sis for a civilised drink or two Friday night…

As I still had some of the legal drug Methadrone (legal MDMA, probably soon to be banned due to fuckwits mixing it with illegal substances and messing themselves up – or dying), I bombed the lot and set off into the cold, cold night (no poetic licence here – it was fucking freezing).

And so, turned up at the Tudor to be met by Bob saying “Fuck me, what are you on?” apparently, the Methadrone had hit and my pupils were HUGE. Great night though – at one point I tried doing a sudoku which was amusing (to everyone watching…).

Still, didn’t make too much of a fool of myself, and even helped carry Donny back to the Tudor (lightweight). So, all in all, a good night πŸ™‚

Oh, finally got to sleep about 6.30am 😐

Woke up at about 11 feeling pretty damn good, so I headed to Tesco for some shopping (never fails to rid me of my good spirits), and sure enough, it was full of total cnuts doing their utmost to prevent me from doing my usual commando raid (5 minutes and out) – bastards.

Oh, I bought a pack of razor blades too – my first since October 2008 – fuck me, they’re expensive now…so, after I’d taken out a large loan to cover the cost, I was back home, and to cheer myself up, I decided to take a nice walk in the sunshine to the Tudor for a couple of beers and watch the footy.

Yes, I know now…

Blue skies in January doesn’t mean it’s nice and warm, as a matter of fact, it was just a little chilly. So cold in fact, that I was not looking forward to walking home, so I watched some inane TV program – Total Wipeout. But the female presenter in that program is Amanda Byram – OMFG, I am so in love – she’s not just lovely, she’s GORGEOUS! and she has that Irish accent too…

Finally managed to prise myself away from the bar and headed home with a takeout listening to my music – and then another great thing happened: Green Day’s version of Bob Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone”:

I’ve always like Green Day, and love the track too, but their version made me forget the cold and I got home actually feeling happy πŸ™‚

I’m so fed up with the cold though, I’m staying in now until Monday…

Lotto draw is in half an hour or so, just the small matter of six numbers seperate me from my dream of retirement on a sunsoaked beach – I’d even give up computers for that…

Take your winter and shove it up your arse – gimme hot weather anytime.


But, Amanda…


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…


I see corduroy pillows are making headlines.

Another weekend behind me.

And I got loads done around the house – laid some more slabs (seems to be never ending this), cleared rubbish from the garden, cleared the BIG cupboard where I’m moving the washing machine (this’ll make room for the dishwasher), cooked a Sunday roast, watched a lot of TV, vegged out, and (of course), had a few beers πŸ™‚

2 weeks until the start of the football season πŸ™‚ Spurs v Liverpool is our first game – should be a good one…

I suppose I’d better get on with some work now.

Enjoy your week!

And the weekend cometh…

Woohoo! only a matter of hours until the weekend proper πŸ™‚

And, I just noticed that my hit counter is only 3 away from 63000 :O

I do get some strange hits here though – have a look:


That’s it for today…might add something later.

The Boomtown Rats had it right…

I don’t need telling why I don’t like Mondays though – I’ve NEVER liked Mondays…

Had a relatively quiet weekend – didn’t go out Friday night, stayed in and had a few drinks with a couple of friends who came round, then spent Saturday doing nothing – felt rough from a head cold so I stayed home and did bugger all.

Yesterday was spent fixing up a computer – had some issues there, probably due to my head being all stuffed up. Basically, I added a SATA drive beside the existing IDE drive and then tried to put Windows on it…finally sorted it. I’ve got a nagging suspicion that the memory might be a bit dodgy in the PC – I’ll check it out later…

It’s getting near THAT time of year again…dunno what I’ll do over Xmas – might even see if I can get a few days or so away…

The weekend


Finished work at 1pm, paid a few bills etc., had a bath and got right onto the important things in life: getting a few beers down me πŸ™‚

And then this happened:

Resulting in this:



What actually happened is Wendy, with an empty box in front of her, decided to sit in it and asked us to send her home. So her brother (Dennis) and me taped her into the box, then Andy (her fiance) and me carried her outside for ritual humiliation…as you do πŸ˜€

The rest of Friday is a blur of drink etc.


VERY hungover…managed to get out of bed, bath and eat, then did some shopping before, you guessed it – getting back on the beer.

Dennis and I decided to get wasted – so we did…VERY much so…


Ah Sundays – the last day of the weekend, a day to calm it down ready for the week…

Well, in theory.

Cue much beer, an impromptu water/beer fight in the Tudor whereon everyone decided to swap clothes (very surreal…)

Never managed to make it into work on Monday…sigh.
