A rather rare thing

…My blogging, that is.

I’m sat here at a new desk (new job – which is new) and I’ve not blogged in over two months!

Since I last posted –

Shit loads (In no particular order):

Go Ape,
Adam’s Christening,
Easter weekend garden extraordinaire,
Demi had to be put to sleep 😦
Quatro finally closed
REDUNDANCY PAY
New job at an LED sign place
Avengers: Age of Ultron

Plus stuff I’ve forgotten.

I will blog – but remind me.

2015 The Plan

It feels somewhat like I’ve been here before

Ok, lets take a look at what I’ve achieved in the last year. Well, 9 months but whatever.

This year I aim to:

  • Actually get a hold on the amount of 40k I have and feckin paint a load up
  • Get back into the piano properly, and perchance play in public again
  • MAN CAVE
  • Electronics
  • Gardening (Because I’m apparenly middle aged)
  • Chill out a fecking bit
  • Get on at work, or move on
  • Hike
  • Camp

Unsurprisingly, this was not all done.

  1. Actually get a hold on the amount of 40k I have and feckin paint a load up. This was dependant on the mancave being sorted, and that’s ongoing
  2. Get back into the piano properly, and perchance play in public again. I am playing more regularly, but what with my broken knuckles of the other year, it’s a hard slog
  3. MAN CAVE. Is up, and currently undergoing a fuckton of tidying
  4. Electronics. Yeah, dropped the ball on this one
  5. Gardening. Oh, I seem to have butterfingers…
  6. Chill out a fecking bit. There’s a theme developing here
  7. Get on at work, or move on. HAHAHAhaha…
  8. Hike. Nope
  9. Camp.

…So I shall carry on with last year’s plan.

PEACE

In the not so distant future

My good freind Kib will be featuring me on his blog soon, this time not unwittingly, go check him out.
He reveiws movies, games, boardgames, and rambles on a lot like me.

Today, Stuart and I will be trying to finish taking the tree out that Dan, Kib and I started last week.

Last Saturday we moved the sleepers that were, long ago, under the shed as SWMBO wants a pew, dug out a trench trying the get this sodding tree out, and burnt more wood.

Not long now till ManchesterComicCon!

PEACE

What do you do with a sunny few days?

Oh, where to begin?!

Friday:

Marvel’s Shavings and Peels. Which is FINALLY picking up.

Saturday:

A fairly standard Saturday, not rushing around. Went into Lancaster for the market. Had a look at Oakenclough sheds…expensive. Not too busy really

Sunday:

Well, take one falling apart shed, add three thugs*, sprinkle crowbars and other impliments, add burning to taste.

The aftermath
The aftermath

You would not believe the ammount of wood in a fairly standard 8’x12′ shed. Ok, there was a lot of wood IN the shed, but my point stands. Now to get a new shed for the mancave. Preferably in the same location. What with the ivy though, might have to be Ally, or concrete.
Would consider wood, but I’d have to do regular ivy culls :/
Broski and Danielle brought both lunch and tea with them (they can come again), and so for tea we had a BBQ. Win. Dan(bro) thought it would be a laugh to but his empty beer bottle in the fire…

This is what it looked like the morning after. Git

Monday:

Double Glazing. Poor Demi, she was scared by loud noises. Was a pretty hasslefree day, aside from when they managed to cut off the phone line, and break one of the glass panels for the door…

Tuesday:

Trims on double glazing. Less noise and they were done by 12. And more wood burning from shed and then a trip to B&Q for some flowery things etc and PUB! Then we sat in the sun for a while and Demi came and joined us.

Thats it!

The Plan

You know I mean business when I write a blog about it…

This year I aim to:

  • Actually get a hold on the ammount of 40k I have and feckin paint a load up
  • Get back into the piano properly, and perchance play in public again
  • MAN CAVE
  • Electronics
  • Gardening (Because I’m apparenly middle aged)
  • Chill out a fecking bit
  • Get on at work, or move on
  • Hike
  • Camp

And yes, I’m aware its the middle of April already…but I’ve been playing piano again, and I’ve certainly bought some warhammer since the year began…
