From then to now … end of the dream …


After the initial ‘first night’ nerves we began to think that we were going to make something of ourselves.  Lunchtime service was working well and we were getting a slight increase in numbers. But it was the evenings that were starting to show. Wednesday was usually the poorest night, but then again nobody seemed to … Continue reading From then to now … end of the dream …

Just a quick test …


I thought I would give this “Blog Pad Pro” iPad app another go. It’s not the easiest app I’ve used, but it is a lot easier using a separate keyboard.I really need to get up to speed with it. Struggling with adding categories and tags. It’s not as simple as with the laptop software, and … Continue reading Just a quick test …

Funny old week …


I’m not going to mention Britain leaving the European Union (well maybe a little) as I think it has all been said. All I will say is that I’m very disappointed with the result. I fully expected it to go the other way but as many people keep saying “Democracy has spoken” or words to … Continue reading Funny old week …

New Camera and things


          Quiz-nite, last night was fun. R*** is on respite, so Mrs H was allowed out. Didn’t win either the quiz or the bingo, but one of our ‘team’ won the football card, so not a total washout. There was some wine left, when we got home, so Mrs H drank that and I … Continue reading New Camera and things

General Observations (Opinions)


     Another dismal result for England yesterday. A key qualifying game for Euro 2012, and we could only scrape a draw. Could I offer my perspective on the reason English football is so often so poor ?      I think for part of the answer, we must look to the Premier League. I understand (not … Continue reading General Observations (Opinions)

Better late than ……..


   I did intend to post on Thursday evening. However, due to circumstances, entirely within my control (ie going to the pub again !!!) I failed to make it. The ‘play’ seems to be getting there, slowly but surely. Fingers crossed that on opening night, nobody forgets too many lines.  s**** has put a lot … Continue reading Better late than ……..

Still here !!!!!


(Wednesday 30/06/10)    It’s been a long time since my last post (or so it seems). Quite a few late nights over the past few days. The play is coming along nicely, but after the rehearsal, S**** like to nip along to the local for a pint or three. Of course, like a good father, … Continue reading Still here !!!!!

Goodbye Slovenia …. hello Germany !!!!


   Well we seem to have been here before !!!!  I cannot see a repeat of the 2001 qualifier, but ……… a win would be nice. A win over Germany is always nice ! But did you see the tennis (never thought I would say that). The epic struggle between Inser and Mahut was amazing … Continue reading Goodbye Slovenia …. hello Germany !!!!

Poor games ….


I am begining to think, that I may be glad when this football World Cup is over !!!!!! There games have ranged from average to poor, with the odd 'good' one thrown in. The talk is that it will all improve vastly, when the knockout stage begins. I await to see! It was the Clifford … Continue reading Poor games ….

Where did that week go ……


   A week since my last post, and I’ve not much to say really !!! The problems at work, finally appear(!) to have been sorted. It would seem, that the problem was not anything to do with what we expected. It was mostly the office staff that had caused the problem. Lessons will have to … Continue reading Where did that week go ……

A busy weekend ……


   Eldest to here yesterday, for the local music gig. I thought, when we got there, that it was going to be a bit of a flop. There was just very few people there !! However, it picked up around 09:00pm, and it turned out to be a good night. Although, the headline act did … Continue reading A busy weekend ……

An interesting week ….


   Now the real face of politics will show itself !!! The ‘behind closed doors’ deals will start. All those standards that people voted for, cast aside in the selfish struggle for “power”. Yet again, the public voice of this country will be ignored.    On a more positive note …… Leeds Utd are on … Continue reading An interesting week ….

Work and stuff …


Work went quite well yesterday, up until around 2pm. I had to demonstrate how to do a job, and it went completely wong. It would seem IT struck again. Some of our staff, need to save images on a computer network drive. However, they get an Access Denied message. Very strange, as the drive is … Continue reading Work and stuff …

It’s hard work ….


   Back to the decorating today. Who would have thought, that a room 4ft by 4ft, would take so long to paint. I think the problem, lies with the previous paint. It’s green. Not just green, but what was called ‘antique green’. Now I don’t know what that means !!! What I do know, is … Continue reading It’s hard work ….

Friday is still a long way off ….


   Another, more or less uneventful day. The IT guy I was trying to contact finally got back to me, so that was a success. I need to get some cases to the new company ASAP. Things are looking good for tomorrow. Fingers crossed.    Not heard from the eldest, since Mrs H rang him … Continue reading Friday is still a long way off ….
