Flamin' Nora

It's good to have a full weekend to myself for a change, no work though I suspect next weekend I'll be manning the pumps. But there you go.

On the union front we successfully negotiated, and got a 4% pay settlement accepted by the members on't farm. I actually got a note of thanks as well. Knowing how bad things are I think 4% is pretty damn good an increase, though there are some who won't be satisfied until we bleed the Company dry.

On a more personal front my mum has got arranged a very posh gravestone for my father and herself (we've got a dual plot in Hull's Eastern Cemetery) all black polished granite and gold lettering. It's costing an arm and a leg, but fortunately we can afford it, or rather mum can.

I haven't visited my dad's grave since he died, I should really, I didn't feel ready for some reason, but cemetery's are wet and damp places during winter, my excuse.

Anyway, as for 2009, well I feel quite enthusiastic. I hope to throw out the crap and have a life for once. My family, mum included seem quite settled and hopefully it'll be onwards and upwards. I also hope to post some photos, when I have the time and opportunity. Ciao anyroad to use a slightly corrupted Yorkshire euphemism.

It's a wonderful life

It's a while since my last entry, I'm busy doing work stuff, union stuff (organising ballots) working overtime. I seem to have lost sight of 'me'. I have to do something about it, after all what is the point of the whole shabang?

Anyway, apparently on the music front I've discovered the 'Floyd' with a little help from a transatlantic buddy (a cop with a big gun of all things) and some Brits. If only I had the time to emerse myself.

More later, when I have something actually worth posting. Think of this entry as a placeholder.

Welcome to 2009

Well, that's all folks for 2008 and good riddance as far as I'm concerned. It can only get better from now onwards, fingers crossed.

Here's a movie I made of the firework celebrations I saw while staying over at my mum's house. I'm not sure, but it didn't seem as loud as last year's shindig? Anyway, it still reminded me of the siege of Stalingrad.
