So what you been up to then.

Well last week ended up with flu and pretty much stuffed.. So spent most of it hoping I would be better by Sunday, when I was due to head off to a hotel for Monday and a course in Hull. Ended up feeling a lot better by Friday afternoon so went out for an Indian meal (yummy).. Then Saturday popped to the Chinese near Sutton Bridge for a nice meal out too.

Sunday afternoon headed to Hull to overnight for the course on Monday..

So Monday did my offshore refresher and Underwater Helicopter escape etc.. Not as much fun as I remember before though.. Then the firefighting and smoke room (not as bad as last time, think the masks here where better), finally the first aid and then homeward.

And.. I have to do pretty much all that again in April (minus the helicopter escape) for another survival.. Because this one explains how to get on and off a boat.. Pretty handy I expect I have been doing it wrong for 11 years now….

Anyway Tuesday this week I intended on starting to cut down the trees at the end of the garden after about an hour I gave up, either I’m still knackered from the survival or cutting the trees down is going to take weeks..  :roll:

Looks likely that I will cut down the bushes at the end of the drive and look to replacing the fence at some stage next week. weather permitting.. Reminds me I need to chase the sign.. Hmm…


So Angel got some new tyres which turned out the be budget even though they cost a fair bit!.. Made some mushroom and bluecheese sauce for lunch and then had a nice chicken salad for tea.. Again played some Destiny.. Still suffering from the bad throat.. Damn it..

Heard nothing from anyone about this possible role so I guess that’s it then.

Booked hotel for the course in April and paid for the course next week along with booking a hotel room.

Going to see a film tomorrow if better.. Bloody hope so as this sucks.. :(

Chilly day..

Well another day of playing some Destiny.. only managed to bleedin blow 20 hours play by buying a bit of armour that I already had :( Opps..

Watched some films in the evening.. well tried to and ended up stop starting them all damn evening :(

Angel finally gets new tyres for her car tomorrow, with any luck I will hear something too..

Fantastic :(

Great now got a bad throat.. Looks like the guy with the cold on Thursday night did in fact give it to me :(

Ended doing some of the garage and throwing out tons of gear and moving a load around to access where the mouse/rat has been eating/peeing & pooing :(

After doing that for sometime I gave up and ended up playing some more destiny.

Booked a course for 16th.. only a day so should be ok.. Travel up Sunday night and back Monday evening, then that’s done for another 4 years, as long as they have some space.

All done then..

Well yet again was a day when nothing went to plan, got offshore, even though really pretty tired, the weather just wasn’t calm enough to do a lift and ended up coming back.. Handed all my gear in to the only guy left in the office, and headed home.

Got home and just finished up doing all the paperwork, although I have to do some more tomorrow as I can’t be bothered to do it now.

Going to chill for the next couple of days and then think about tidying the garage and throwing away tons of the fishing gear that has been eaten by the mouse/rat :(

So now finished and nothing to go to for some time as everything has stopped for the time being.. Sigh


Yes finally finished on this project, which is a shame as I have enjoyed it, but everything have to come to and end eventually. Keep hearing noises about a possible role with them doing something else.. And stupidly I’m getting excited about the prospect of doing it, I should know by now that in fact it’s likely I won’t even get a look in on the role.

Started late and then ended at stupid o’clock in the morning.. worse still I have to go off again tomorrow and make sure they get the container down.. :(

Destiny.. Hmm

Ok so I have to admit it is very much like Too Human I keep going back to it.. I now have two high(ish) level characters and keep trading items backwards and forwards between them. Although I have to say the word GRIND comes to mind.. :s Also seems unlikely I will play the expansion as you need to be level 30.. Seems daft to make an expansion you pay for but must be at level 30.. Hmm..

Anyway spend most of the day chilling on the game, frankly pretty knackered..

Re-booked my course’s for the end of April and probably going to book another course at some stage next week.. Of course I now need to book hotels.. OOerrr..

Still windy then..

So this evening was a late start (6pm) to make the most of a lull in the weather..

I was worried that the snow would be a problem but it seems only Boston got hit, ended up making good time and getting there spot on.. I did also do a time lapse of the drive as a check but the camera/phone seemed to be corrupt.. I’ll see if I can get it sorted at some stage, but it is only the car journey as not allowed on the bridge of this vessel. :(

Anyway headed out and damn was it rough, this vessel isn’t the best anyway having a cockscrew motion, so with weather on top of that it’s not clever. Ended up getting to site and finding the weather was still *on the limits* and if we had gone for it we would have been stuck there until Friday if the weather did change too much..  8-O

Headed back in and then drove home.. Was a nice journey home and had pizza for late tea.. :)

Tomorrow I’m at home as the weather is just too bad to try anything, looks like Thursday night or Friday morning now.. So may finish this week anyway.

Finally the TV is on the wall..

Yep got the TV up, sondbar installed (after a lot of faffing and in’n’out of the garage, kept forgetting the bits I needed). Looks very bare in the room now.. chortle.. So I guess it is good in that respect at least.

Found out that I’m offshore tomorrow evening, yes they are finally *pushing* it..

And been chasing about an upcoming project and pointing out I am training and don’t want my CV being refused on the basis that my certs are out of date right now or soon to be, as I’m planing on refreshing and retraining in the next month or so.

I was panning on a Bath tonight.. But bit too late now.. So won’t bother.. ;)

Started snowing earlier.. OOoOooOooo.. Snow! pretty!

Pinch, Punch, First of the month

Yep it’s February at long last.. Another day playing at Destiny.. Managed to get quite far this time without too many disconnections and even managed to get Jasper to help me complete the game.. phew..

Back to work tomorrow although just in for a meeting and some scanning tomorrow morning before heading back home.. The weather is pants for the rest of the week now too.. although I expect someone will risk *it* to prove a point at some stage.. I just hope for everyone’s sake that no one gets hurt.. I’m certainly not taking any chances ;)

Angel ordered up a new soundbar for the TV upstairs and I’m going to stick it on the wall tomorrow (been saying that for ages ;) ). But once the soundbar arrives I have no excuses I have to get it up, the soundbar you dirty minded people!!
