Finished this week!

Now looks like could be finished up this week probably Thursday!..

Not sure how I feel but hey it has been a good job a little down that I’m not going to get an extra week out of it but those the breaks..

Another long day and just sitting outside the harbour now typing this on the laptop.. (7pm ish) be heading home in a bit, once we finally get through the lock that is and right now that’s not looking likely to happen for a little bit either.

Hmm.. not sure how I feel now.. Blimey..

Hope we have enough saved up for the training I now require for the next role.. Guess time to start hitting the emails next week.. Although be nice to have some time off too.. All we need now is some awesome snow.. More talk about some next week but well lets see eh?

Sadly looks like I won’t get any more time lapse as I haven’t managed to find a way to attach a camera to the wheelhouse window in time.

Ho hum.. Still I do have a LOT of gardening to do :)

Sunday.. And knackered..

Well back to it and boy am I tired.

Looking at this right now looks likely I may get another week out of this and that will be it. Some bad weather coming in soon but for now it looks good so can’t complain.

Ended up back to a nice Sunday roast that angel had made then some Big Bang Theory on the TV before having a deep and meaningful conversation with the pillow.

Dinner out then

Last day with my back to back today so the Boss invited us out to a meal this evening. I went in first thing did the hand over had some nice breakfast then headed home as no point sitting about all day in the office, plus the Boss had gone fishing for the day.

Anyway was nice to be at home most of the day and grabbed a snooze as I expected I would be back late and up mega early for Sunday as the weather looked ok.

Ended up back at 11pm after rushing off after a coffee after a very nice meal.. Probably badgered the Boss far too much about another role but hey if you don’t try..

Going to be feeling it tomorrow!

Back to work tomorrow

Blimey is it cold today or what? Hope it gets a bit warmer as I’m back to work for the last time with these guys tomorrow and don’t think I can deal with freezing my buttocks off all day.. Brrrr..

Played some more Destiny earlier and started to level up my Warlock (currently level 10) the idea being I then have two and can do some more farming.. Already have some legendary armour for him anyway so just 10 more levels before he can use it chortle.

Bed early tonight as up for work tomorrow.. Off out for a meal tomorrow night as last time will see my back to back and the Boss is paying ;)

Out a fair bit today

Popped into Peterborough again this morning and had a wander about some retail parks before heading back home. Played some more games on the telly while chilling in the afternoon. Then went out for a nice meal at the Chinese down the road (20 miles away lol), was very nice didn’t eat too much and had a nice time.

Back home and watched “The Giver”.. Oh dear.. what a pants film! Is it me or am I seeing the same film over and over again with different names and characters..

Talking of films I’m getting sick of having to sit through crap adverts you can’t skip explaining that piracy is a crime and if you get caught you will be shot in front of a live audience, ok that may be a little extreme but what the hell.. I’m sick of these adverts.. People who PAY for the products get stuffed with this crap…. Almost makes you want to take up piracy so you can avoid the bloody adverts!

Day in front of the telly

Yep well certainly did do too much yesterday so have spent the day sat in front of the TV playing Destiny in the front room while Angel does here puzzle books.. Then off to bed although struggled to get to sleep.. :(

Start work again Saturday and had an email today confirming it will be my last shift on this project.. Shame as I have enjoyed it a huge deal but everything comes to an end at some point. I was asked to forward my CV for another project so fingers crossed I get asked to continue with these guys.

6 tons..

Well this morning Angel moved the Van and I finally got out of bed with a bad neck.. However no rest for me as got some gravel turning up.. Got out there to move some of the bricks and create a level area only for the gravel to arrive!.. So then it was wheel barrows full of the stuff and trips backwards and forwards alongside the garage as it finally got finished off.. Managed to get a fair bit done although looked like 3 ton wasn’t enough so Angel ordered some more.. Then went to get the Bin while I moved some breeze blocks around the back, to create a firewall for the Oil tank, seems that the Log Cabin is now too close and there is a requirement of a firewall.. Hmm.. Anyway while trying to sort that out I noticed that the fence had come down behind the cabin so that was fixed and while doing that the other 3 tons arrived.. no time to stop.. Well a cuppa and a couple of short rests and then back to it..

Angel managed to tidy up a lot of the weeds and I finally got most of the gravel drive done, probably require *another* 2 tons to cover the bits that I missed but *very nearly* done.. Looks damn good though. Once get some more in a month or so the drive will be damn good looking and *finally* done ;)

Also ordered a Hedge trimmer so I can sort out the crap down on the drive at last.. Probably need to replace the fence there as well as the sign post..

Tonight? I think perhaps some gaming.. But might end up on the Amiga’s again trying to get everything setup in the room.

Kings Lynn lunch again..

Popped into Kings Lynn for Lunch and ended up buying a new bluray player & trackball which was darn cheap. Then headed home and ended up finally setting up the PC with Windows XP (shhh).. Also setup the A1200 in tower although I can’t seem to get the CD-Rom drive to work with the CF card… Strange to see the display on a TV and think it is too low res.. Man I remember programming a C64 on a Huge 28″ CRT TV and thinking it was the dogs dangles.. So can’t get the Network card 64mb memory expansion to work so for now looks like I shall have to find a different way of transferring files across.. Maybe using a Raspberry Pi plugged into the serial port is the way?..

Got 3 ton of gravel turning up tomorrow for the drive, extending it around the side of the garage at long last.. So to bed early.. Supposed to drop to Minus 4 tonight but when went to bed seemed about +3 or 4 which seems strange.



The hounds have now worked out that if it is cold and frosty in the morning they can play a bit as Angel doesn’t have to worry about mud (the ground is frozen solid) it’s also very amusing watching Smudge trying to push the ball around as it skids everywhere ;)

Not much happening today just a chilled out day watching TV… Watched some Big Bang Theory and then snooze time :)

Off out tomorrow and with any luck get the bonfire going ;)

The Garden.. ish

So Angel cleaned her car this morning and I dragged a load of branches from the back garden to the front and started to strip off the twigs and stack them in the woodshed. Got a fair bit done the sort of lost the will so gave it up.. Still need to remove a couple of trees/shrubs and get the rest around to the front for the bonfire which I think I will try and get done Monday.. Damn it’s cold..

Angel ended up cleaning up the yard after her car was done so that looks ace now.. Damn I need to get the slabs down out the back so that it sorted.. Only been meaning to do it since September ;)

In other news started to burn a load of the logs that were from a couple of years ago in the woodshed.. All soft wood so burns very fast but damn hot so warmed up the front room pretty damn quick :)

Ended the evening playing on the Xbox, Lee joined towards the end and I helped him complete the game before heading to bed.. Zzzzz..
