    Another great weekend

    Lisa didn’t have the kids this weekend, so we went out for a drink Friday and Saturday night. Our usual thing is head to the King’s Head for a couple, play some pool (Lisa is quite the player – beating me more and more now), then head off to the Pig and Falcon to listen to whatever band is playing. Sunday means an invite to Bri and Von’s for dinner (Von is a great cook 🙂 ). This week Tash (Von’s youngest daughter), and Bob were also there, so a fun afternoon was spent (Spurs played Blackburn in the football […]

    Long drives, flights and cuddly toys…

    The Munich air show is on this week, and we (the boss and I) went yesterday. This entailed me getting up at 2am to drive to Gatwick airport for the flight, so a long day (I got home about 9pm). Weather out there was nice though (it generally is for the show), met a lot of people, and most importantly, got 3 cuddly toys (2 hippos for Kira and Carys, and a polar bear for Lisa – hence her comment on the post below). I seem to be traveling for work a lot now – looks like a trip to […]

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… The A-Team

    Ha! we found them: See? it’s their headquarters too! I did note however that they are ‘under new management’ so has Hannibal left them? also, they have a sign ‘drivers wanted’ so maybe BA has also gone…*sigh* This was taken last week when Lisa and I had a couple of days in York (ask her about the train fiasco…) – our B&B was up the road just past this place, so EVERY time we passed it, we both started humming the A Team theme 🙂 I didn’t take any pictures from the city walls, so I can’t give you a […]

    The herding instinct

    So, as it was a bank holiday on Monday (a GENUINE one – not one of my ‘I thought it was’ jobbies), and Lisa didn’t have the kids, we decided on a day in sunny Bedford. Well, actually, we decided to go see a film, but got there really early so went for breakfast first (mmm…breakfast). This is where we ended up – and I must say it looks pretty good (so good in fact, that we decided to go back there for a meal sometime – but more about that later). On entering, we decided to both have a […]

    Where has the sun gone?

    It’s been one of those weeks – Monday was SUPPOSED to have been fairly easy for me…just a smidgen of paperwork to do before my trip to Hahn on the Tuesday/Wednesday. I hadn’t figured in the Tim factor (AKA: fuck up factor) – as such I spent the day in the workshop trying to get the paperwork over there up to date, then making sure delivery notes etc. were all ready for stuff going out while I was away (I could have left it for Corina to do, but I like to be ahead in these things). After work, I […]
