A ridiculous amount of rain this morning in Whitby. Made packing up the car a bit of a damp experience. The rain did not stop until we reached Pickering. Had a walk round, then onto a Garden Centre nearby. No purchases though. Lunch at the White Horse at Deighton. Then back home to await the … Continue reading Home again
Just been to the service at St Marys chuch at Whitby Abbey. Small comgregation, but an intersting service. Quite traditional. Now in the Duke of York Harbour Inn, for a spot of lunch. Fresh crab bagette. Nom nom.
Got here without any problems. Well when I say that, we did miss the correct turn off the A171. Weather is quite good at the moment, although it has got dark very quickly. Had a crab baguette for lunch (one between two, huge !!). Eating in tonight. Pizza.
This afternoon, I had to get something out of the garage. For some reason, I happened to glance upward. What a wonderful surprise. There, circling about 100 foot above me was a Red Kite. Absolutely amazing sight. When I first saw the bird, it was into the sun, and I thought it was a … Continue reading Wonderful …..
As the title implies, I did my first run this morning. Nothing major at first. The route I took is about a mile and a half, and I reckon I managed to run about 2 thirds of that. I don’t suppose that is bad for a first time, especially at my fitness level. I … Continue reading First run
Not a lot to say really. Work’s been a pain. I’m getting more and more fed up with the fools who think they are something. IT got it wrong again !! The software house was going to do the configuration this afternoon, but out lot had not done the work that was needed. … Continue reading Another week bites the dust
Very few fireworks going off tonight. I suspect that it will all kick off tomorrow and Saturday. That will cause us problems !!! Youngest has a problem with fireworks. It really upsets him. The few that we have had tonight have caused problems, and still are. Here we are at 11:00pm and he is … Continue reading More of a damp squib
A very good day all told. We had a trip out to the McArthur Glen outlet at York. I bought Mrs H the handbag and purse she wanted, and I got a pair of trainers. I'm thinking of doing a bit of running. I need to do some more exercise. We then had lunch … Continue reading Happy anniversary
Yes, another day off on Wednesday. well it is my wedding anniversary, so i think I'm entitled. A reasonable day at work today. S**** appeared to be in a better mood than yesterday (I’m still flavour of the month) although still managing to be a pain. The migration from Lotus Notes to Outlook continues, … Continue reading Another day off ….
I got the car service and MOT done today. No major problems, except one with the rear suspension. Apparently ‘one of the bushes on one of the suspension arms had too much movement’ which partly failed the MOT. All gibberish to me, but it was a similar thing with the front suspension last year. … Continue reading A good deal ..
On the whole a good day. No lie in of course, youngest awake at 5am (as expected). I got one of the light switches fixed, which leaves one more that should be done. Also got my desk lamp fixed, which was almost as tricky as the light switch. I managed to get my … Continue reading Quite a good day …
It may seem silly going back to work for one day before the weekend, but I did manage to get quite a bit done. Our ‘corporate email’ is in the process of migrating from Lotus Notes to Outlook 2003, and it was our offices turn this week. Of course, all the Numpties found it … Continue reading That’s Friday over
It’s back to work tomorrow !! It’s been a good few days off. We dropped the eldest at Uni this morning, and then went to look at a new car. We get to change our family car in March, under the Motorbility scheme, so we need to start looking now. We’ve had a Renault … Continue reading Back to work ….
Its the eldest lads birthday today. He was supposed to be at drama tonight, but there was some problem with the village hall. Apparently the new paint job had not been completed, so they could not rehearse. Two of his friends, B*** and C******* came home with him at around half 8, and we … Continue reading Birthday …
It has been a good day. We went out for a meal with K***’s Mum, Dad, Aunt and Uncle. It is here Aunties 70th birthday next week, so we went to the George at Piercebridge, near Darlington. It is a nice place, but the meal was not as good as it promised to be. … Continue reading One down … two to go
