A small world …


Way back at the beginning of 2017 I posted about a familiar face popping up on FaceBook and how I was in two minds as to whether I should make contact or not. Looking back, I don’t think I posted that I did get in touch. We had a good evening out some time later, … Continue reading A small world …

Interesting days …


Yesterday was a day I was a little apprehensive about. I was meeting up with an old school friend for lunch. We have met a couple of times over the past few years, but I seem to have been trying to avoid meeting again. I can’t say why. We both get on together. We have … Continue reading Interesting days …

Small and strange …


Let me get something out of the way. The title of this post is not a case of self deprecation. No, I’m talking about the world and how is connected by the internet. A bit of background here. I was doing a search on eBay, for something I wanted to buy. I was not having … Continue reading Small and strange …

Finding old friends …


I’m tempted to give up on Facebook in some instances. Over the years, I have lost contact with people I know. Sometime it’s because one of us moved house or job. Sometimes just drifting apart. None of my friends and colleagues from my first and second job are still in contact. These are people that … Continue reading Finding old friends …

Easter … what a flop!


Well not just Easter. The whole weekend was a bit of a flop. K*** was not working on Sunday, so we were set for a quiet lazy weekend, after the hectic Friday. But, Saturday afternoon she started with what seemed like flu. S**** and A****, his girlfriend had both been quite ill with it during … Continue reading Easter … what a flop!

Been a poor blogging week …


Title says it all. It has been a poor week for my blog. As I mentioned last time, I have been on leave this week and other things have kind of taken over. For example, I re-painted the ceiling of our en-suite shower. Don’t ask how that went, suffice to say, it took all day. … Continue reading Been a poor blogging week …

Good intentions


   I have meant to post, but the evenings just seems to run away these days. so to catch up. The play was as good as I was told it was going to be, and S**** was really pleased afterwards. As expected, Saturday night was a late one again. We got back in about half … Continue reading Good intentions

Different night in the pub


   Not my usual pub night, but S**** was up for the first rehearsal of the panto. He mentioned that I should come along for a drink afterwards. As R*** seemed to be quite calm, I went along. It was a good laugh. Of course when Dr J*** is there, it is quite outrageous,and with … Continue reading Different night in the pub

TGIF…..


   I’m glad that week is over. Work wise it’s been quite a successful week. All my PDA’s came back from repair, although one has to go back. That was hard work. They don’t realise that I’ve working with the kit for 5 years, so I know when a problem is real. Hardest is part, … Continue reading TGIF…..

Back again ….


   Well, as expected, the quiz-nite went well again. We got 37 points, which is a record for our little (sic) team. Of course, we did not win. That was never on the cards, but that’s not the point. R** won the bingo though. I don’t think she really knew what to do/say when her … Continue reading Back again ….

…. and it is still only Thursday


This week seems to be dragging on somewhat. As I expected, the software house rang me at twenty past four … “hello … I finish around four pm as I start around seven thirty am”. Yet again W**l came up with a theory, that I instantly demolished. Does this guy not have any experts that … Continue reading …. and it is still only Thursday

Quiz nite … yeahhhhhh


Today has been a good day. C**** came in to see everyone. She’s not changed, except that she is about 40 shades browner than she was. And so to the quiz nite …… S**** had either invited or was invited by, some of his drama friends. So there we were, B** and his partner R**, … Continue reading Quiz nite … yeahhhhhh

…..and so to continue


I did the bike ride !!!! Must have been about six miles. Along the access road (keeping to the newly made foot/cycle/bridle path), up  Spen Common Lane to Headley Hall, down the bridle path (passing a few bricks on the way), then along Aberford Road, down Church Hill and home. Knackered !!I think I may … Continue reading …..and so to continue

A wet day


It was a bit wet at lunchtime, but still warm. Warm and wet does not bode well for a walk by the sewerage works. So I thought I would walk when I got home again. However, It was looking really unsettled, when I got home, and true to form, it was raining within half an … Continue reading A wet day
