Great Big Wuss !!!

A couple of months ago I had a problem with my right knee. It swelled up above the kneecap and I couldn't put any weight on it at all. I saw my GP and they got me a referal at the local hospital for yesterday evening. The swelling has more or less gone now and walking is mostly fine, but I still ...

The end of the first half

Well that's the first half of the year done then. So what's happened in the last six months. I've changed jobs, now closer to home, with a company and people I've worked with before, less stress and I'm enjoying it a lot more - professionally, everything's looking good. Personally, I still fee...

What am I going to write?

I just clicked on 'New Blog Entry' without a thought of what I was actually going to type. I've been suffering a little bit from last night's events. We went to a 50th birthday party for one of my wife's colleagues. There was a pre-paid bar for half the night (mistake no.1), which had cask ales o...

Blogging on

Helen commented about me continuing my blog, despite low viewing figures. Since then I haven't posted :-) but only due to lack of time, not lack of interest. I suppose that I'm carrying this on as a bit of a journal, with the idea of looking back some time later to see what I was up to and wha...

A whirlwind week

I haven't had a chance to sit down and type away for a few days. Yeah, okay, no need for the cheers :-) Sunday afternoon/evening was spent at Edgbaston watching the cricket, Monday evening was a chance to get out and do a bit of much needed work in the garden and last night we went to see Bon Jo...

When the alarm went off yesterday morning at seven, I jumped out of bed in excitement. I was off to the MotoGP at Donington... then I drew back the curtain and saw the weather. It was just a litte bit grim here in Middle-England. I got there in plenty of time, set myself up at Craner Curves for ...

Bears v Pears

It's Friday lunchtime. Only three-and-a-half hours until I shoot through the door and out to the car park for my drive to Edgbaston. I'm off to see the Warwickshire Bears take on the Worcestershire Royals - Twenty 20 cricket. The Bears have had a good start to the competition and are top of our g...

The weather is a bit grim here in Not-so-sunny Solihull. Grey clouds everywhere and the trees at the bottom of the garden are dancing about like Wayne Sleep on acid. It's half-time in the footie, 1-0 to Russia. Not a bad game so far, would like Sweden to score early in the second to make it more ...

Tuesday has been and gone

Well that was Tuesday then. The alarm clock woke me a lot easier than I thought it would, considering I didn't get to bed until stupid-o'clock. I went to see Tesla last night in Dudley. Stonking time had by all. Spent most of my day at work with the set-list going round in my head. This evenin...

Monday's drivel

It's turning into a typical Monday at work - everyone depressed at the thought of another weekend consigned to the history books and too far away from the next one to see the light at the end of the tunnel. For me, this week's light is provided by my forthcoming trip to Donington Park for the Mot...

Lazy Sunday Afternoon ?

Lazy? Well, not compared to yesterday. Had a do-nothing day yesterday. Nosed around on the 'net, pottered about the house and drank bucket-loads of tea. Had a busy week at work so it was a nice respite from the hurly-burly. Refreshing the batteries, so to speak :-) Today, I'm having a bit of ...

The weekend starts here

So, my wife has gone off on her hen weekend and won't be back until Sunday afternoon, by which time I'll have a nice juicy roast ready and waiting - boy will she be surprized. I've finished my working week, done the Tesco's run and cracked open the first beer of the weekend. If it's the first of...

Suggestions welcome

I've just found out that my better half is going to be disappearing off 'darn sarf' tomorrow for a Hen Weekend. I thought that was next month. Ah well, never mind. So, now I'm looking for something to occupy my time on Saturday, rather than the Tesco's-and-telly that football's close-season usual...

Blogs away...

A Blog? Hmm, don't mind if I do. Just got to think of something to say now...
