Blog 2

Hi,

it’s 9pm and I’ve just got home from lunch out with a friend.

What can I say but it was a long lunch… With a few beers, cocktails, shorts and so on…

It’s a shame that the whole day was spent drinking and eating… 🙂

We went to the O2 which was empty due to a Tina Turner concert being cancelled. Tina had flu… According the the lovely bar woman, Ntoya…

Food was very expensive but an experience. We went to Rodizio Rico, which is a Brazilian restaurant. Strange idea. The waiters just kept bringing meat on a stick over until we was full. Steak, chicken, sausages, garlic bread, ham and many many more. It was fairly random and a bit like food rape. How do you say no to a man holding a big knife and asking you to have his meat!!!

Once this was over, then came the meat shakes… And the need to sleep… Which is where I’m going right now…

What fun will tomorrow bring?

My first blog…

Hello,

Well this is my first blog and I have no idea what to write but I thought it was a good idea about 5 mins ago.

I’m on holiday for this week. What a week so far…

It’s very unlike my last holiday which was so boring I wanted to pull my eyes out and I had no money to go anywhere. This holiday has been fairly busy.

On Friday I went to see my friend Nipul and his family. We had a meal at a HARVESTER which was not great. My first visit and my last. I loved spending time with his family and I stayed over. Didn’t sleep much but who needs sleep.

The next day we planned to go to Freeport, which is a shopping village in Braintree. Before this Nipul wanted to get his hair cut at a new salon in Chelmsford. I’ve never seen him smile so much as the leggy blonde hairdresser came over. Turned out she was glamour model in her spare time. Result!!! I know where I want to get my hair cut from now on. 🙂 However, her beauty wasn’t matched with her brains and the topics were limited… I noticed another stunning hairdresser that had an amazing smile and a great personalty. As usual, I was too scared to say anything but what a salon.

Anyway, we went to Freeport which was a little dull really and then a bland lunch at Aroma. If it wasn’t for the company, I would have had one of those falling down moments. Okay, I would have needed a gun for it to really work but you get my drift. I managed to get a couple of Denby noodle bowls from one of the store which cost £10 each and drove home. Upon opening my boot, the bowls jumped out in a bid to escape being over filled with noodles and smashed into little bits on the street. I think the first word I said was, Bollocks. Which makes me think that when the end comes, that will be my last words…

Sunday was relaxing, spending time with my parents and doing nothing.

Monday I got recallled from my holiday to find out my fate in the great recession of the 21st century. So far so good. I’ve managed to keep my job at the same time, so many good people didn’t. In some places it was a bloodbath and I’m going to miss hearing and seeing them all. Times are tough and I’m glad to be valued. I just need to have faith in myself and try and do the best job I can.

Today was a wasted day. I had to get the cars MOT done. Before this I had to sort out a small problem caused by me… Either way, it cost me £266 and I will try and be more careful in future. It’s strange how grown men turn into kids when talking about my car… These guys see them everyday but when you love them you love them…

I managed to lay a 21year old demon to rest today. I needed to say something I meant to say a long time ago… Time to move on.

God, it’s only Tuesday… What will the rest of the week have in store?

I know this. It’s boring in the evenings with nobody to talk to and all the TV, FILMS and BOOKS all completed.

Hay ho!!! Bring on the Trumpets…
