From then to now …the training years


There were three trainees started in 1971. The previous year there was only one, so the money the department had saved could be used the following year. Those were the ‘good old days’ of the Health Service. For some reason, I started on the 23rd of August, with the other two (A****w and D***d)starting the … Continue reading From then to now …the training years

Stress Factor – Not X Factor


This of course relates to work. Not exclusively, but in the main, it’s all work related. The latest restructure is beginning to have it’s effect on the team (and I use the term loosely.) Tempers are getting a little frayed and certain people are beginning to jockey for position. For me, it seems that I’m … Continue reading Stress Factor – Not X Factor

Fancy dress


     Wednesday saw a family birthday meal for S****. To coincide with Halloween, S**** decided that he wanted us to all dress up. His theme was Black! I had no idea what to wear, until I saw that S**** had a bowler hat. Now, I thought, I only need a black suit and tie (which … Continue reading Fancy dress

Catch up time


I’m on holiday this week. We are not going anywhere, I’m just using up the last of my leave. I have my interview tomorrow (Thursday), so fingers crossed. Neither job I’m applying for, covers what I do at the present, but if I get one of the jobs, I think I will be doing a … Continue reading Catch up time

There seemed to be a lot of money being spent, which was good, and everyone was having a great time. The prices were extremely reasonable at £2.50 for a pint and … Continue reading Bramham Beer Festival (pt2)

An odd day …


   It has been one of those days, when nothing has gone wrong, but nothing has happened to make it memorable. It just happened. Of course, the idiots were still idiots, and still did the stupid things that idiots do. It gets me quite angry, when they do stupid things after four/five years. Grrrrrr !! … Continue reading An odd day …

Knackered……


I did a walk tonight as promised. It must have been 5-6 miles as it took  1 1/2 hours all told. I set a reasonable pace, and I think I kept it up. I did the same walk as last week, but the opposite way round. Plus I added, what must have been at least … Continue reading Knackered……

Monday…yet again


Sunday was just Sunday. Eldest stayed in his room with his girlfriend until 13:20. Then he suddenly realised that his best friend from school (JH) had just parked his motorbike outside. A little bit of a panic there, with the GF rushing to get dressed. He is a decent lad is JH. Easy to talk … Continue reading Monday…yet again

So where is Fridays blog ?? Is this the start…..


… of the slippery slope to complacency ? Where indeed was the blog. Well basically I ran out of time. I had a bit of a boring, but labour intensive day at work. I had to mail-merge over 800 letters. Not a big job I hear you say. However, the data source for the merges … Continue reading So where is Fridays blog ?? Is this the start…..
