getting on

i cant believe how fast time is wizzing by at the moment ive been living in my new place for 6 weeks now and should of moved into my own place ages ago as its so much quieter i have no nagging or moaning can do stuff when and as i want

the garden is realy coming on now dug out the patio foundations the garden is nearly all level and flat had a skip delivered on sat morning and had a busy day filling that up but think the worse is over now

as it is easter this coming weekend ive decied to book the whole week off so thursday evening i finish work then i dont come back till the 20th of april, reason why ive done this is cos ive been made permanment at the university where i work, yup 18 months of working with the agencey i have at long last been made perm iam quite chuffed, so i start on the 20th of april as a permanment member of staff at nottingham university, i have some anual leave to take from the agencey so  iam going to have a couple of days away and chill out

i took my car for its mot this morning and it failed but not a biggy just need a new break pipe fitting and job done i also had a service onthe car and the chap at the garage mentioned that front and back breaks need changing and theres a leaking break cylinder needs changing so friday morning ill be changing the breaks the pipe and cylinder i was going to get the garage to do it but they were going to charge another 180 quid for the pleasure of doing the job so i thought as i can do the job meself ill get the parts for around 40 quid and do it myself and ill get the breaks blead as well,

and dinners get in touch about you coming up for a beer or 2


i was reading todays newspaper about a man who’s house wasbeing robbed he called the cops but the cops said they couldnt  come for quite a few hours so the bloke whos house was being robbed took matters into his own hands and held the robber till the coppers did come,

then only to be arrested himself under kipnapping another person, and he was  given a 12 months suspendend prision term and to do 200 comuinity sercice, cos the idiot laws said he was inthe wrong for holding another person or some crap,

so what are you suppose to do let some cunt rob your house and let the arse hole get away with robbery or if you decied to defend your house you could be at risk of being arrested yourself for causing harm or being accused of kidnap what do you do????

if i was ever in that situation i could put a baseball bat to said robbers knees bung him in the back of my car and dump him somewhere and get me mates to give me a ailby saying i was round there house having a beer

what a situation also to be in when you ring the coppers and to be told they cant help you you’d have a million thoguhts runnign through your mind of what do to, its alll a load of crap these days the law protects the robber more than the victim

if only i was prime minister, have a goodun and stay safe theres still nutters out there

job interview

at long last ive had a interview at nottingham university, i have been working as a building attandant through a agency for nearly 2 years now and the university have decied to make the jobs permament

its goign to be good if i get the job to me made permament as ill be settled at long last in a job which i mostly enjoy, and it’ll be a lot more money as well the job dose have it’s moments but dosent every job fingers crossed i get a yes i have got the job on either friday or monday

if i dont get the job i dont know what iam going to do as it’ll be a hard slug to get another job at the moment with this recession going on and i dont think the recession will end and time soon, i was reading about this chap who went through the hell of a thousand interviews before he got a job,

how demoralizing that would be having that many interview think ill be down hearted if i had 50 interview let alone 1000 think i i had 100 interviews without no joy ill deffo end up depressed, i know one thing tho what ever happens i know this time ill have to sign on the dole a thing ive never done before only if its for a short time as, now i have bills to pay and rent my money will soon dry up,

in the past ive only been out of work for a couple of weeks before ive found something but i think ill find it quite hard this time as there are so many other people out of work who do want work this job iam doing now the advert went out and over a 100 people have applyed iam not sure how many have a interview but i know its not many, and least there are 3 jobs going so i think ill have a fair chance of getting one

if i do find myself without a  job i dont even know what job i do want to get might go back into bar work as ive not done that for ages but do i want to deal with all the drunks and long hours just to make a normal wage as last time i did bar work i had to work some very strange shifts and hours to get something like a normal wage and i dont think i can do that again,

i dont know fingers crossed hey that ill be taken on perm basis and carry my job on ,

quite chuffed

hello iam back yup ive had a catch up on the blogs now i have a working computer again, over the last month ive been finding my pc running very slow think the problem was down to a worn out hard drive and motherboard,

so sunday eve i sat myself the task of installing a new motherboard and hard drive, ive never done anythign like this before so i wasnt sure if it would even work or not when i put the new bits in, not only did it all work fine its quiet and super quick, and even managed to get my other hard drives to work as well,

my computer was 6 year old so thoght it time to sort it out, now its sorted iam quite happy managed to have a sort out of my docs and pics and this week i think ill sort some play lists out

fingers crossed ill have no more problems, but saying that now i have my own place i dont have my parents hammering the crap out my computer

stay safe as theres still madduns out there

days off

last week i took a couple of days off work, so i had a long weekend thursday and friday i got a lot done as well, i made a start on the jungle of the garden and from these pics you can see how much work is going to be,



but after a couple of hours hard graft i’d got a load done and was ready for a  fire, and it didnt half take off i did have a panic for a few mins as i thgouht the fire as you can see from these pics below was about to get out of hand but it sorted its self out quite nicely, and from this manageable fire to the next pic you can see how i paniced a little





and the fire got even bigger for a few mins i would of took a pic but was running round for a while making sure nothing else would catch fire and the wind started as well then but all in 5 mins the fire was under controll again and burnt a lot of crap iam going to have 2 more i think as there is still a lot more rubbish to get rid off

also while i was off i caught up on some telly and went out for a beer or 2  it was one of my mates 40th birthdays on sat so went round a couple of pubs for a few and tryed antoher take away the lads at my regular takeaway will not be to pleased i went to another place but i must say this new place did as well as the lads at vagas takeaway, for 4.50 they did a donna kebab with chips masla fish and salad and i was ready for it by half 10 sat eve i can tell yeah,

monday saw me back to the grind and its been a busyish couple of days so far, and ive got another weekend off iam getting a bit used to this i can tell you, and speaking of work i best get ready for it as iam sure its going to be another busy one

woke up in the past

at the time life on mars was on the telly i was a big fan and enjoyed the telly show from the start, i often thoguht how i would feel if one night i went to bed and woke up in the past? or i had a accident and woke up in the past as either myself or as someone else but still had my own mind,

think i would like to go back to the 70’s have a good look round and see what was different as i know nottingham was very different than it is today would be good to go to some of the good old pubs and maybe become friends with my dad or my grandad and have a beer or 2 with them, that would be a bit strange me knowing who they are but them not knowing who iam,

then when my dad meets me mum and have me would he reailze i was back in the 70’s as a 30 yearold when i reach 30 in this day and age i wonder and if that was to happen what would happen he would know i was around in the 70’s but i wouldnt know i was going to be in the 70’s as it wouldnt havehappend in my part of life yet, what a wired one

but i would love to go back to the 70’s i dont know if life would be any easyer or not it may be simpler by todays standars no mobile phones or computers or chat rooms no computer gaming of the sort be very differnet in that sence, think tho i would if i went back in time go and invent something or if not invent something bet on all sport games so i can win enough money to life on without being to obivous

be a hard one to work out if anything did happen like that and here is a video below from the theme music life on mars and what a great song it is enjoy


another weekend bites the dust

here we are back on another monday morning, weekend went very well again got everything done which i wanted but i didnt have my bonfire i wanted as to time in the end, and sunday as a bit of a washout so hopefully ill get the rubbish burnt sometime this week,

the stew was mouth watering had some saturday eve then left it in the pot over night and had a second helping yesterday and it tasted even better, i made me mates mouth water and his sister seemed inpressed well i am good at the old cooking if i dont say myself think ill do a curry tomorrow and see how that goes

one of the jobs over the weekend was getting curtain rails put up and a general clean up and i must say the new gaff looks more like home now got also managed to sort my pc out as i started to reinstall it last weekend but ran out of time and in the week i was busy but its all back to how it is and set up to how i want it and again iam quite happy also it seems to run a lot better,

a good weekend so far

the weekend is going okay getting everything done i want to, made a start on sorting the garden out and going to have a bonfire this eve to burn a lot of rubbish then off for a game of snooker with my dad as well

stew is on the menu this eve its been on the hob for an hour and a half already and the house smells great just what you need after a days busy gardening i think, all left to finish the stew is put the dumplings mushrooms and thicken it up lovely

cant beat it

cant beat it

righty i best get to the shops to pick the final bits up for the stew have a gooden and stay safe

all going well

hello blog world and what a couple of busy weeks ive had but the weekend saw me having my 1st weekend off in what seemed like ages, lucky as i had a load to do

the moving house went okay and iam settled in now just the last few bits and bobs to sort but nothing major now  the house is looking quite smart,  got the computers linked to the xbox so i can play movies and telly shows on my big tv a thing ive wanted to do for ages but i never got round to doing

i also managed to get my pc reinstalled as when i was living with my parents they used my pc i think they buggered it up a bit as it was very sluggish, but it all seems to be runnign smoothly once again, now its just putting some of the progs i use back on and getting it to how i want

i even got round to washing my car again ive not had chance to wash it for 8 weeks as again been so busy, and quite pleased with how it looks its gleaming all the trims are nice and new looking now iam just waiting for the mot and service at the end of march,

iam getting the service done by a garage this time as ive always done my own service on cars ive had in the past but with this being a bit of a newer car and iam goign to be doing some mileage this year iam getting it done at one of the local garages, as for a major service and mot they only chage 150 quid which i cant moan at as quick-fit were goign to charge 150 for a basic service then mot on top, i have heard good things about the garage so going to see how they are

i was quite hungover sat morning and at one point i thgouht i was goign to chuck my guts, as i felt so rough but a couple of strong cups of tea and half a fryed breakfast i was all systems go again, the plan was friday i went out with a tenner and come home for 11pm as ivenot realy been out for a proper drink on a friday for ages as of work sat morning and what ever but i ended up having such a good time i ended up borrowing another tenner from a friend and stoped out till nearly 2am

i knew it was late as my local take away was shutting down and i only just managed to get a double cheese burger with kebab meat wolfed that down me and stright to bed feeling quite happy with the world, i know i have next weekend off as no work is lined up but after then its going to be a bit mad again for another 6 weeks maybe as we have a couple of jobs to finish off now the building work is at a stage where we can 2nd fix our stuff

and also this last week i know ive not been catching up on folks blogs so this eve when i get home ill be having a stroll round blog land, have a goodun and stay safe and heres another video guns n roses 14 years what a great song,


all going okay

ive been moving house the last couple of days and its going quite well, got all my flat pack furniture built the kitchen is in some kind of order but still need to get the rest of my kitchen stuff from my parents loft along with my cd’s and dvd and bits like that, done most my food shopping and made a curry which i enjoyed very much, now its just having the last bit of a sort out and clean up realy think by sunday ill be all sorted and what ever

think one of the jobs iam going to do over the weekend is going to reinstall my computer and get it linked up with my xbox will be so handy to watch films and tv shows from my pc on the big telly in the lounge, iam also going to install another harddrive just a little one so i can just use it for windows operating system as the drive ive got my operating system on now is in a way a bit wasted as its a 150 gig hard drive and i only use it for windows

so my new idea is that a 40 gig for my operating system then my 120 gig for progs and documents and the like, the 150 gig for music and my 500 gig for my films so thats going to keep me busy for a few hours at least,

i was reading in the metro today and i found a couple of intresting sotrys one was on about how working overtime is as bad as tobacco for dementia, well over the years ive worked a load of overtime so ill probly end up nutty as hell,

think its time to go and do some work and stay safe you lot as there are still a lot of madduns about
