HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 09/05/2015 at 20:03

Evening all. Back from the scout camp and we only suffered one bladder related incident (not mine) and one poor lad who couldn't last out and fell asleep on us. Good camp!

Worked out in nine days (on a 30 hour a week contract) I've so far clocked up 97 hours. I don't even know how that is possible.

BUT I AM NOW OFF WORK UNTIL TUESDAY! TWO DAYS OFF. WHOOP WHOOP!!!! Technically I need to go work tomorrow but only to deliver some resusi anns for a Biker Down course.

Now... best get the sythe out and cut a path to the greenhouse.

Morning all. 

Well Panda if your group ever want a trip up north the museum will always be open for you! Not sure I'd like to do that car journey with a bus full of guides though.

Off to get the food supplies, resusi dolls the fire service are loaning us for the weekend as we do a basic first aid session with them, and of course filling the fire appliance with water for our morning water drill. Then its all steam ahead!

Evening all. Been and voted, cooked (and scoffed) rhubarb crumble with some fresh rhubarb out of the garden.

Trying to have a quiet evening as tomorrow sees a scout troop descending on the museum for an overnight camp. Managed to pot up one hanging basket with some strawberries in: I've decided while hanging baskets require extra attention it should reduce the slugs and dog eating all the produce!

Evening!

Scarborough was wet and .... really really wet. I'm convinced the rain was wetter than the sea. Still at least its done. I'm just sorting out my time sheet: I'm contracted for 30 hours a week (so 120 a month on average). Its the 6th and I'm already up to 60 hours. No wonder I'm tired! Needed an emergency pit stop on my way home and found a garden centre (much cleaner loos than service stations is my opinion): alas someone else had already had all the sticky labels but I did find a nice pot to replace the one that smashed in high winds a few weeks back. Only just had space in the car!

Poor Reggie is on a nil by mouth for 24 hours as his stomach has been bad: its all well and good the vet telling me this but I wish she'd explained it better to him! A little snout is insistent that its dinner time.

Matty: great news on the flight! I hope you have a great time.

Did I see Fairy?!

I'm not sure if they will. Are there any trails from slugs or snails that might be hiding in your greenhouse? At least you still have time to get some more seeds planted for a later harvest.

Beaus - this suddenly explain why you're all 29! Too busy and you keep postponing the birthdays! I'm thinking October might be a good bet for me...

Mornings meeting has been cancelled so I am taking the chance to work at home getting some paperwork done since at home I have this nice large warm office and comfortable chair - at work I have to perch where ever I can find a quiet corner. Just downloading a few documents and thought I'd nip in here: joyous multi tasking!

So bums or boobs? I think I'm a bum person. But then I see a particularly nice pair of boobs and suddenly I'm not so sure.

 

This thread has been reported to the moderators for potential trolling. Hopefully they will deal with it soon enough and ideally delete it.

Morning all. Not much sleep due to wind so its lots of tea then off to Scarborough to collect a donation for the museum. Garden is romping on without me and I'm getting the feeling that my birthday present (those chickens he said I could have last birthday) are retreating back into a distant pipe dream! Ix it possible to delay my birthday a month or so? I'm too busy to deal with the "oh you have to celebrate" brigade!

 A daft photo for you from the weekend. That was after day two of about 8 hours in the smoke house a day which is a large inflatable tent filled with non toxic smoke so you are completely blind and ridiculously hot (think of all that glorious sunshine heating a large black greenhouse). Unsurprisingly I'm the only one in the team who didn't get a sun tan!
