Puppy Pics

Now have figured out not to "Bounce" the flash when taking a picture of a black object !

Stumbling On

Well the dog hasn't dumped in the house since the first day we got her ! As soon as she wakes,or has been awake for half an hour we take her in the back garden,and always treat her when she "goes". She is getting more vocal everyday,she can now bark in a very high pitched way,she started at 5:25 this morning,and at 5:40 I gave in and got up. Diet is so so at the moment,dreading WI on Sat,I had a crunchie last night,and have just ate another one. i must track it and check the damage. I was stood in the school playground this morning,just muesing that its Oct tomoz,then it hit me like a thunderbolt,its our 4th anniversay on Saturday !

Our New Dog

Well,after taking so much abuse from the supervisor on thursday I didn't turn in for work on Fri. We got our flyer to Holmefirth after all ! Had a great night,but far too much to drink. We also missed breakfast and more importantly our WI sat morning. We have now got a new dog,kim,we have just done a 120 mile round trip to Wrexham to get her!

Bloody Fook !

Where Do I Start ! There is a lighting factory in Ashton,which occasionally has jobs going,and uses employment agencies to recruit. In the past 2 years,I have had 3 inductions by 2 agencies.
No work has ever come from them,my last induction was four weeks ago.
6 Months ago,my most favourite group in the world announced a small tour,and the nearest they were coming to us is Holmefirth,about 15 miles away,but in the borough of Yorkshire.So we booked a hotel,arrival 1pm friday,so a nice relax ,then the gig. We get up Saturday,to a hearty english breakfast. Bliss! I even have found a place we can WI on Fri morn,before we depart for the hotel. I am also looking forward to an interview I have with the NHS,working in a pathology laboratory,which is for 1pm on Monday at the Manchester Royal Infermary. Life is good !!
Then - 11.43 this morning,I get a call on me moby,its only the agency "hi,can you start tomorrow?" Well naturally I said yes,I have been waiting 2 years to get in there,but now the afternoon in the hotel is dashed,and the Fri WI. Plus I cant have my NHS interview,but as Angie points out,even if I was lucky enough to get the job,it usually takes around 3 months before you start,and then I would have to commute to central Manchester every day,that would put 2 hours travelling on each working day. So,im going to start tomorrow,and hope I get taken on full time after christmas.Oh,by the way, I was ultra good yesterday,and saved 8 points,too many I know , but after the excess of the weekend,it won't do any harm !

A Terrible Weekend

Well, I said I wasn't going to let my STS get me down,then had a bacon and egg muffin for breakfast! Sunday was even worse,It was the Derby,so cider from 1:30pm,then an all you can eat chinese buffet,and loads more beer. I was sensible though , I was in bed for 10:15,and I feel fine today,and back on track !

Portland Basin & The Canal

Woop Pass Me A Halo !

Lookey Here !
What a ride,i did the route i used to cycle when I had a "proper" job lol,then returned to the town centre,and photographed the temporary market that was put up after our old market burned down,being demolished. I then cycled up a bloody long hill to where they are building a new academy,which our 2 youngest daughters will go to. I am doing a photo blog of that too lol.
I had a little boost re a "proper" job yesterday btw,the agency that i did the induction for the panel wiring job ,rang me,the guy who handles the contract told me that he was going on holiday for a fortnight,and he is expecting by the time he gets back I would of started,fingers crossed.
I think i will post this now , and then the pictures I took above it ! BRB !

Returned To Class !

I was so scared , it was being summoned to the heads office at School! As it turned out , our leader Jo is off today , she has took her daughter to see JLS at the lights turn on in Blackpool today. We both WI with a 3lb gain , but that still gave me an official WW 10%,so I got my keyring. I have also bought a pump today , so no more excuses , and back out on the bike I go.
Also,our neighbours have just had 2 tons of soil delivered,and i have offered to help shovel it , into wheelbarrows tomorow , so that must be worth a few BP !
