Tis pissing down here in the village which is not the most auspicious start to my week off from the grind. But having said that any time away from the not so Fun Factory at the moment is more than welcome, inclement weather or not. Not saying that work is like a parachute at the moment but it is bloody well getting me down with the usual crap and mismanagement antics that plague the place, oops I'll be getting another slap on the wrists if one of the buggers reads this but then again I'm not sure that most of them can read that well anyway! Then to compound my "not a happy bunny" mood earlier today I dropped my new camera on the tiled kitchen floor....I just knew that I should have ripped up those original Victorian tiles and replaced em with some modern uber cushioned tacky Lino! The expletives were enough to turn a sailor's face red! Scared of looking at the irreparable damage my clumsy actions had caused I picked up the camera and just stuffed it into its lovely padded case...yeah I know closing the gate after the horse has bolted blah, blah and thrice blah.
But tis not all been doom n gloom, have I told you that I am off work for a week? Also the final piece for project 'fish pond' was picked up from my friend Mr. Rogers yesterday and all shall be unveiled by the end of the next week (if it stops raining that be). Also Mr. Ball returned recently from a trip to Amsterdam where he was good enough to procure for me some delights for the garden....
Trouble is as they await my attention stored away in the study they are giving off a thick aroma which I can only describe as the odor given off from a certain recreational drug! of course not that in my youth I had any experience of such things, ahem. M'thinks that I had best be getting them in the earth afore the neighbors become suspicious!
With the pond almost finished and awaiting nine goldfish (don't ask) my attention is now wandering to other projects. Firstly I need to make a garden storage area, complete with living roof, which will allow me to complete the shed tidy up and also let me demolish the bloody horrible side building which stops me getting 'flat cap man's' car near the house. Secondly I am going to set up an aquarium in the study, something that has been on the wish list for some time, oh and thirdly I may just attack some of the growing list of jobs that my beloved George is amassing for me, I am rather running out of delaying tactics and excuses so m'thinks I'll have to earn some brownie points sometime soon.
Oh and our holiday in Cornwall is looming upon the horizon, something to which we are looking for too with a passion...Lost gardens of Heligan (though they are sign posted!), Eden project, long walks on beaches, strolls around fishing villages and even the prospect of meeting friends from here in the blog world. Yep the holiday cannot come soon enough for us, including the terrible twosome.
One last happy note, just before writing my usual drivel I was brave enough to check the camera out briefly...
Unfortunately it seems to have contracted doggyitus. ;-)
Til the next time, take care.
