It’s not just big its huge!

20180129_201230

I’m still working my way through the story. But as I’m now so into it, I thought it might be wise to see what I was missing.

20180129_201251

So I brought the guide book.

20180129_201152

Wow this game, it’s just not big its huge.

20180129_200936

I have a flick through…

20180129_200945

This is where I am, but there are so many other things to do as well. Things I have not touched on. Wow oh wow. Could this really all be done on a PS3?

Ever Expanding Balls

20180129_075324

When I wake today I ache. Every joint aches, even the ones in my fingers.

20180129_075113

I put a travel folder together and fill my coffin bag. Now if I could only find my passport. As it happens I can’t. Now that's worrying. I can find the 2 that are out of date. But not the proper one.

20180129_075155

Mean while my dad asks if I can bring down key 27. He doesn’t have one, and he knows that I do. So I go and take one down. And when I use key 27, I find that inside the box the fixings are missing. Now nearly every time I leave the fixings in the box. So where are they. As it happens they are here. I didn’t know they where here until I was there. And then I knewish that I didn’t need to be there to find them.

20180129_075200

But right here. I find them in my garage in a bag my mind knew about but no one else. I look inside, its all here. I call my dad to let him know.

20180129_075607

On a completely different subject, if you have any of these ball type air fresheners you will notice the balls slowly get smaller.

20180129_075533

And when they do so, you can add water to them and make them expand once more. And if you smell them, the fragrance will still be there. So if you smell like I do. Use a drop of water and hide it.

Only 3 Years.

20180127_103211

Saturday I woke up early, and I was in the mood for getting the fence done. I read Tommy Walshs tips on fencing from a book and made a cup of tea. I got out the tools and

20180127_083256

looked at the situation. I remove the fence panel and reposition the good one

20180127_101216

where the bad one is further down the garden. I can’t get it in myself and there is no sign of the neighbour. I prop it up for now.

20180127_091429

Situation turns out to be the post is cracked. Wow what the wind can do.

20180127_101230

I get the spade out and get digging. A lot of digging. A lot of pulling a lot of leverage. Eventually the spade breaks! Well that’s the end of digging. Eventually I remove the post.

20180127_112127

20180127_101240

One hole.

20180127_101728

I drag the post to the drive way and consider the options of

20180127_101246

the gate. Erm????

20180127_112123

Well the sewer runs directly under here, so I’m not going to dig that up. That is only going to lead to a whole lot of other issues I don’t want to go into.

20180127_103611

So with that I go indoors.

20180127_103206

I get out the paper catalogues. I go on the web to see what is available locally. And then consider the fact that a concrete post of 2.4meters is required and I need a vehicle that would take such a length. I think of Gerty. As it happens Gerty is not insured, but this did mean that I got a cup of tea. I knocked the neighbours up and left to go and see Sara and her brand new motor with a tape measure and two towels. A while later in Wickes, she went to look at the kitchens while I looked at garden posts, cement, a new shovel to replace the shovel I broke earlier, a wooden post, some raw bolts, a post holder. A while later we loaded for lovely car with a long post, delicately down the center wrapped in towels. Unbelievably it went in the car really well!

20180127_112125

Back at the work place there is no sign of the neighbour still.

20180127_112344

While I wait, and some 3 years later, or earlier depending how you look at it, I get the second one out of the box. The first one has been up and functioning for a while. And when putting it up, I remembered why I left the second one in the box.

2018-01-28_05-33-58

But now it is up it looks good. At some point I’ll have to wire the lamp in. That's a whole lot of other mess, and plastering. That will probably be another 3 years.

20180127_112129

Sometime later the neighbour comes out and helps drop the lower garden panel in. We have a chat about the works, and life. And that I’ll be busy for the next two weekends at least. He promises me he’ll get it sorted.

20180127_122755

For now this is how it will remain. But for how long? And will I end up doing it myself?

So Inappropriate

20180124_190910

So I go swimming for the final time this week. Man I feel so good. So alive. Can I keep this up. It will be difficult next week.

20180125_225759

For Friday evening rest I put on grand theft auto San Andreas for a while.

20180125_225756

The gangster story has taken a bit of a change since I passed my flying school test.

20180125_225124

You see I get to fly a plane.

20180125_214055

Right to a sex store, where I get to buy a gimp suit. Yeah I kid you not.

A Different Kind Of Sizzle

20180122_220501

On the way home I get call asking if I want to go out for a sizzle. I say yes. Car share asks what a sizzle is. Ah its just a cheap brand of pub that does carvery all week, cheap during the week, but you can have fish and chips or pie or something like that for £5.75. Ah he says. At home I get the snowboard boots I have now wrapped up and finally been paid for and take them to the co-op “my hermes” drop off point.

20180123_184033

After dropping off the parcel we head to the pub, enjoy a good meal each and then head home. I don’t stay up very long. I’m tired from the swim yesterday and i need my bed again.

...

Sunday, January 21, 2018

Serbia?

20180121_093554

I get up and change the bed clothes. Yep life is that exciting. I put a girlie bed spread on. Well it looks nice, clean and fresh.

20180121_094024

I notice outside it is snowing.

20180121_093600

It is snowing heavily.

20180121_093641

Buddha will be cold.

20180121_104812

I watch the white stuff fall.

20180121_105507

The neighbour calls round to discuss the fence. We are going to try fixing it next Saturday. I hope the weather will be better than this.

20180120_110142

With the original plan for the day off due to heavy snow, for most of the day, I sit and eat and play at being fireman Sam. Trying to raise $75,000 isn’t easy, unless you do lots of fire fighting. Problem is finding a fire station first with an active fire engine. Yay I get enough and buy that airfield. And now it wants me to learn how to fly helicopters while shooting missiles. This I am not good at……

20180121_201501

Sometime later I’m round my parents. I watch The Grand Tour and then go in search of my spare phatnoise boxes. My I forgot how many I had. Now how can I get one of these to Serbia?

They’ll Have To Change The Lyrics

20180119_075000

I get up and look out the window. There is the broken hence.

20180119_075041_Burst01

At the bottom of the garden I look how cold it is. Poor Buddha.

20180119_234746

The story of GTA San Andreas continues. I finally get to cross the bridge to explore the northern territories.

20180120_110142

Oh wow this is base on Las Vagas. Then I here the post flap.

20180120_104425

I look at the envolope. Erm it looks like another bill. I could do without that. But when I open it, Plus nett have decided to give me a gift of £50 for coming back.

20180120_111510

Suddenly I need to get to the bank I turn off the PS3 and head down the street. Hell it is snowing, it may not look like it but it is snowing. I call my parents for whom I was eternally waiting for, that I will meet them in town instead as I need to get to the bank. I will be able to afford some groceries after all this week.

20180120_123213

Later on in poundland, I am looking at spending my money carefully. Here I can buy 50 items. Hold on, mybe I can only buy 25?

20180120_123455

Or in fact only 10. Where are the pound items?

20180120_124911

Shikes, I think I’ve come into the wrong shop. This seams to be the more than a pound store.

20180120_125007

Even the clothing is more than a pound!

20180120_125203

Oh my god its a big con. Its 10 one pounds! Someone somewhere is going to have to change their song lyrics or just look plain stupid.

20180120_130052

I leave with nothing and enjoy the whiteness of life.

20180120_130707

I go with my mom and dad for some dinner in Taylors.

20180120_130713

While we drink tea and eat lasagne, we watch the white stuff fall heavier and heavier.

20180120_143907

I get some veg from Jessica's and some cornflakes from Iceland.

20180120_180926

Once home with the fridge full, I try to think of something to do. So I get my drill out.

20180120_180650

A while later, after some noise and some dust, a shelf is erected.

20180120_180645

Yep that is perfect. I can put a cup of tea on there.

20180120_194436

I settle down for some more action in a world far far far away.

20180120_194456

The thing is I need $80000 to buy a derelict airport and I do not have it. Worse the game storyline does not want to continue until I have brought it. Aghhghghghghghgh

20180121_110204

So I whisk the disc out and decide to go on a journey far, far, far away. Somewhere that will take me on a journey to find a shining star.
