Xmas day 2011

Weird one this. I loved the entire day but waking at 5.50 was a real pain in the bum. Youngest is 12 so her fault.
Food prep was done by 8pm Xmas eve. So cooking started with turkey crown in oven at 8.30am.
Pressies. Picking up other kids and more pressies done by 11.
By the time in laws and my mother arrived cooking was in full swing.
Dinner was lovely. 9 of us around the table. Only missing person was my dad who passed away back in Feb.
You forget how much you miss someone until family events happen and they are missing. His ususal demands of Brown Ale and whiskey were easy met while he sat in the chair in the corner waiting patiently for dinner. Always wearing the small paper cracker hat that never fit his head.

After 3-4 weeks of ankle pain. Now my back has decided to give me grief. But as the phrase goes, 'every cloud has a silver lining', mine was spending Sunday sat on my arse. YEAH BABY.

Next Ghost Hunt

Saturday coming DPI are off to a house in Leadgate. Suffered a suicide and the reports are that it does not like men. I could be a ghost target. Bring it on. I'm still waiting to experience a paranormal experience.

Twilight film

Utter shite. Boring as hell.

Snow Tyres

Bring on the snow and ice. My brum brum is getting her tyres changed. Ah bless.

Not blogged for a long time.

I have had a very difficult last few days due to a twisted ankle. Fancy slipping coming out a mates house and screaming like a big baby.

The few/many vodkas helped to numb the pain, not to mention the ice bath that followed to keep the swelling down.

But a dog walkers job has to be done, or the dog will shite all over the house and thats not good.

Weekend Work

I really wish I never agree to work weekends. Hate morning and late afternoon broke up days. Cant arrange to do anything with the day. Can be waste of a weekend if it wasnt for night time drnking.

Very tired

Need I say more. Bed calling me.


Need I say more.

Sat here bored waiting to have my knackers gropped and fondled by a Dr.
Few months since this journey started to find the problem of the right knacker pain.
Antibiotics didnt seem to work. Nor did different style of pants.

Wear supporting undies is the answer.

Death is a bitch.
7 months after my dads death, is hitting me harder now than then.

Rant over

The big 40

The Mrs setup a 40th birthday party for me last Saturday which I enjoyed.
However we have both been struck down with some bug since then.
Rather than finish off all surplus beer Ive been craving warm drinks and plenty painkillers.
Life begins at 40 eh? Oh dear.........

As a tester. Switched wifi off. Now its letting me create offline messages.
Howay man. Get a grip.

Time gap

Been on hols and without internet connection this didnt allow me to create a blog on my android phone. Surely there should be an offline creation option.

Well well well. After two days of avoiding rain, nature took a cruel twist on me and drowned me in the heaviest rain I can remember ever being caught out in.
Weirdiest part was seeing an OAP straight after it stopped standing on his kitchen roof WASHING the roof with a hose pipe.

DIY master

As if. Im rubbish. But I did manage to fix a broken toilet after 9 days.

Not before I bought the wrong piece.

But now we can flush again without using a bucket.

Fishy snapshot

Finding it pretty hard to photo the fish with the water fountain on. The ripples affecting surface making a clear shot impossible.

However I was very lucky to snap one of Mr Big Fish having his tea today.

Pump head

The mrs keeps changing the setting on the pump. Now it a bell shape. Grrr

New Mr Fish

During the week the mrs bought 8 new fish for the pond. The new pump has made a dramatic effect clearing the water.
Honeytone came over yesterday to bring us her 6 year old fish to join the others. After a brief temp adjustment to his/her new surroundings within moments swimming carefree the the others.
While i have never in the past enjoyed fish in tanks in a house. I am strangely enjoying pond fish.
No idea. Answers on a postcard please.

Cracking day NOT

After a very good night of having a couple of friends over for food and wine on saturday we are still recovering.

On a plus note we installed our pond pump. Took over 30mins before we had it in the correct place and with the correct nozzle on for the specific spray pattern. I was borderline slipping in a few times. Luckily my centre of gravity held out.

Pixelpipes the bad boy

I was checking my blogs to see if they posted properly. Then surprise I saw my daughters photos I posted yesterday to Facebook. They were messing in old fancy dress costumes and my Mrs's bra and my undies.
How on earth?
They were also on my twitter feed.
Now innocently as they were I could I have caused myself some serious issues. On Facebook I post pics of the girls all the time during their daftness sessions. But anywhere else pics of 13 and 12 year olds just appearing in bra and knickers could look very bad without any context behind the.
Still i was confused.
The culprit was the app Pixelpipes. Pipes are accounts of other software / web sites where you can upload multiple pics at the same time. However I had unknown to me all accounts selected. Pics flying up the pipes everywhere.
I have removed them from where they are not supposed to be.
Internet police can bugger off.


Every now and then I look back over the previous year to see what's occurred and to see what we can do to improve our services.
However this time round its been a bit depressing. In 12 months, 5 dogs have passed away. One customer passed away and her dog was rehomed. And a few customers are on long term sickness or unemployed so our services are on hold for an unknown period.
Day by day we notice it happen but its quite a shock to add it all up.
Without trying to sound insensitive to the pain of others,  its quite a financial cut in income.
Time for a major advertising campaign.

Pump day

Yesterday we got our pump/filter for the pond. However we haven't got our outside electric socket installed yet. Luckily its getting done on Sunday while we have a predicted hangover (in advance - curse you Andy and Luisa)
Then all systems go for our water feature.
Next week we are getting Mr Big Fish to join Mr Little Fish. Dare say Ill be sat there watching them swim round and round and round. Strangely theraputic on a nice sunny day.

Crazy Thursday afternoon

We spent an afternoon with Basil, Buddy, Flopsie, Tiger  and Wrinkle in the garden. Little fish was swimming hard and fast in his/her new pond. Seems a little lonely. But soon we will have big fish to join little fish.
Flopsie ran around and bothered all. Big bully rabbit.
