Tattoos

Tattoo's does it get into the blood? I have 5 currently. I'll list by location and date 1- Owl in blue flames. On right hand side by appendix. Hurt like hell but for Sheffield Wednesday my team. Oddly since done in 1999 Wed have gone up in flames and in the s***e. Good luck symbol, not. 2_ Chinese symbol meaning Tiger. Upper left arm my Chinese birth symbol for year. 3_ Chinese symbol meaning lucky. Upper left arm above number 2. Done after I came out of hospital in 2000 after I'd been g

Christmas Lights- Chav style

My house is on an ex council estate. Until today it was the only house on the estate without any lights outside. It was decided that this made our house worse than some of the others. So I've invested in some lights from Wilkinsons for £4.99. Given the gales forecast for tonight, it may be £4.99 down the drain Oh and here's the Christmas Tree circa 2007!!!

A door closes

Last night during a fab party at our pub, both Darren and myself made a big decision. We decided to close the pub down. It was a wedding present from our partnership in the summer. We have broken even- but the rent and cost of stock have hit hard. The smoking ban has hit harder. Since 1st July the 3 pubs in the area around us have closed, as they didn't have the courtyard like us. But with 2 weeks to Christmas,even the amount of customers have dropped below the "normal" level. Hence at 11pm tal

Confessions

I have been married for 3 months. I will probably be filing for divorce after today. My "husband"- and I currently use that word lightly- didn't manage to come home last night. When I found him in the pub at lunchtime he was 4 parts to the wind and told me he'd had a lovely night in the local Holiday Inn with a another guy. Then to make matters when better- he tells me this the sixth time this has happened in the 6 years we've been together. So after 4 hours of finding out this information -

Last day and a sad ending

Today is our last full day in Glossop. Left work yesterday, and had a serious panic atack in the middle of my presentation- so much so, my boss thought i was having a heart attack. :o It was a combination of no food,stress and too much beer the night before, but boy has it scared me. Think I'll see a doctor as soon as a get home to Plymouth. Wish us luck, as we move some 300 miles south, back home. :lol: :lol:

Facebook

Facebook. Odd beast. Yes you can be become friends with people you know very well and love, but equally out of the blue, someone clicks on your profile and asks to be your friend. Nothing unusual, until you realise that this person generally made your life unhappy via bullying some 15 plus years ago. OK they may have changed as we get older, but do you accept them as friends???? Bit of an odd one that.......

Lovely Day - Rotten Ending (could Swear But Won't)

OK so day splits into 2 Normal daytime, got the ceiling decs up (via Jeremy Kyle and Trisha). Helped Darren's mother (my mother in law) sorted a loft of winter clothing out and charity shop stuff out. And then had chinese take away. Till 1 hr ago. And Kieron came over. Our mate Dave over the road has been burgled. Badly. So a lovely day has ended with a mate in pain. In his words he "feels like he's been raped". That not words. His. Poor Dave has lost TV, DVD, Camera, Pixil Camera, his lo

Time To Update- And Moving Home.

I can't believe it's September and i haven't entered a new entry. So here's quick update. We're moving again. But in a good way, we're going home to Plymouth I've somehow manged to get a serious promotion into management with Plymouth City Council. It's going to be hard to leave all my friends at Rotherham Council, but if somebody offers you a £7000 pay rise and no travelling what would you do? So it's been a mad month, packing, looking for a new house and a job for Daz. We have managed to

34 tomorrow

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 34. I asked Darren "How did I get to be 34?" He replied "You should have been drowned at birth!" :unsure: With some of the things I did in 20's maybe he's got a point. At least I'm off work tomorrow. Good ole Flexi

Review Of The Year 2008

Well as I'm transferring the Calendar dates onto the new 2009 one, lets have a review of 2008. Not a bad year overall. There have been some good and bad points. Good Points. 1) Changing jobs to be Civil Enforcement Officer. Yes its not good when cold and wet, but pay is the same as the old office job which stressed me out and I do love the work! 2) Holiday in New Forest (first week of May). Little did we know, that was as good as the weather was going to get. 23c in New Milton and getting

The Phil and Looby Show (day 2)

No smoking day 2. Fine so far- actually really good. Monday in the Parking Unit is not a good day- phone goes none stop. The only blip I had was at 2.15 this afternoon with a "idiot" - I use the word for little eyes (get my meaning ) who wanted a permit for parking after getting a penalty charge notice. He had a go at me. BIGGGGG mistake. Mood turned blacker than the sky from a supercell from France. This was the conversation. "You want a beat message" -Me "Yeah- I can't get to your offic

Depression

I have been dianogised with Depression and Anxiety- and finally I've recognised that I need help. It all came to a head on Saturday night, when I did somethings which I deeply regretted. I won't go into details, only my close friends have never been so worried about me and told me straight on Sunday/Monday to go off sick. My Doctor has been fantastic and has told me that I will in this for the long haul and he has given me a tablet called Citalopram. The ironic thing which I couldn't get is that

4 Days to Go

Well my last true day of work before the do. Usual stuff, clearing stuff up- writing letter to customers that I should have done months ago (Sorry Relate group in Plymouth)- sorting out Boats and Moorings stuff - (hey if you park a car you must park at boat as well- hence my new additional job title to Senior Parking Officer - Assistant Harbourmaster! ) and then.... at 445 just I was getting ready to go, the whole unit came into my section with an enormous bag of presents. I couldn't belie

Not copying Looby (honest)

1st day of not smoking for us as well. So far, so ...........well ordinary. Done the ironing, watched Something for the Weekend, eaten a tin of mackeral, just going to have a cup of Bovril. Oh and an overwheling desire to kill other half. Mind u, he's in the corner gently rocking from shock (he was a much heavier smoker compared to me). Actually feel sorry for him. Going for a walk to take my mind off it later on today. 520pm -a lovely long walk with the dogs on the River Plym throwing stick

Blimey 3 weeks!

Day 21 Still no smoking. Yet ironically feeling ruddy awful- certainly Thursday and yesterday. Developing a nasty cough- a good sign that the chest is clearing slowly. Having a quiet weekend at home- spring cleaning now. Smelt the bedroom curtains this morning- yuk they are coming down for a wash today. Now all I have to do is get Darren to paint the whole house. But he can do that next weekend!!

Update

Well it's been a long time since I updated so here goes. All been very quiet, love my new job as a Civil Enforcement Officer- the rota takes some getting used to, but nearly 3 months in, I think I can remember it by now! Off to Germany on Saturday to see the Christmas Markets - of course I have developed a stinking cold yesterday so lovely Tescos have sold me some cold treatments. Time for North West Tonight to see the snow- nothing here!

Should you giggle at a funeral?

Sadly a great friend of ours lost his Aunt last week, and we went to her funeral this afternoon. Kath was 91. It was all fairly somber, and both Darren and myself cried during the early part of the service. Then came the last hymn after the committal at the crem. The song was "All things bright and beautiful". Now I know all the words to this classic hymn, having had to sing it every morning at primary school, and as the hymn started, it looked like Darren did too. So I put the hymn book down.

Day 8

I have been to the Doc's. No, still not smoking, but went for a training run yesterday for a 10k I've signed up for. And tore my hamstring behind by left knee . Doc thinks I'll be fine, just hope that it heals before 4th May.

Little break and day 17

Just come back off a little break in our new caravan. Been staying in Okehampton- lovely little site. Back to work tomorrow. Not looking forward to it - we had Job Evaluation results last Friday. I was lucky, my team not (they lost £4000 each). God knows what I'm going back to. Good news - still not smoking. New job perhaps????????
