Doh, no trains again!

By the looks of it I won't be able to make it into work again tomorrow.  Or at least according to national rail there will be no trains till 12.  Not much point after that so will work from home.

New cushions

New seat

Yeah, and?

Yeah, what's your problem?

Fat fuck

Neil Ruddock ex Liverpool player has let himself go a bit don't you think? I wouldn't say it to his face mind.

The Ham Off no.2

Here's the prep off our two hams. Mine was a ginger ham, April's 5 spice. Adrian's plain but stuffed with sausage meat. Mine came 3rd, April's 2nd and Adrian's 1st, although his did look suspiciously shop bought...

Chipping Sodbury

I visited Ross with Shaheen last weekend. It was good fun to see him as I hadn't for over 6 months. He's still goofy.

We shouldn't be trusted with fireworks

Christmas day fireworks round the McCrows. This was the final load but the first single firework we tried fired straight at the fence and was lodged in it till it went out. Oops.

It had to be done

Phew. Nearly missed watching it today. I did forget to bring my moose eggnog mug though.

You can call me The Dude

We have a new chap in my team called Jatendra, he's asked in an e-mail to be called Jett.  I've replied with yes, but only if I can be called The Dude...  he's not replied yet.

What a shame

All of our trains are dead this morning so can't get into work. Yeah. We're only in for a half day anyway as it's Christmas eve so having to travel for 2 hours to do 3.5 hours work wouldn't have been fun. Now to see if I can get the working from home programme to work.

7 working days left for 2013

It's been an odd year but I think more positives than negatives.

What a waste of paper

And postage. If you're wondering who's in the shadow it's Biscuit.

Friday 13th

Things have been quiet so far. Probably down to most of the team being hungover having had our Christmas party last night.

It was good fun considering I don't really know them well.

Somebody's in love

Oops I did it again...

Bloody chestnuts!

Christmas curry

Annual curry with the lads. Bit of a pub crawl first round the old haunts then curry in the Red Chilli.

Which came first?

The chicken or the cow? Tramshed with April, Adrian and Trisha.

Laser cat

One of our next door neighbour's cats giving me the evils.

Metallica baubles

Dusting off the Metallica baubles for this year's tree.

In other Metallica news, we're off to Sonisphere in July to see Metallica and Iron Maiden.


Getting back from the Belgium trip we saw this carnage in our back garden. Lovely.

Vito the dog

A Belgian dog called Vito.

Gig number 2

April's second Brussels gig, this time by candlelight.

My kind of restaurant

Rugby lobster

Gig one

The Swallow's first gig in Brussels. Lovely crowd, only the one fight...

Nice radiator

I want a house that would suit these.

Dog pissing statue

There are three statues of things pissing in Brussels. We saw 2.

Some sites

Some shots of Brussels.

Total recall

I spotted that the boots own brand cough remedy I have been using over the past week is subject to a product recall. Something's wrong with the safety cap. I've still got a bit left so will wait till my cough had cleared up or the bottle nearly finished before taking it back and claiming a full refund.

That's if I don't choke first.


I was going to be £1,575 short this month as my current company was supposed to take over my season ticket loan from my previous company. This didn't happen so my previous company deducted £1,575 from my final pay cheque. Ouch! Luckily my new company had part paid me for this month so should be fine but still I would certainly miss that from my account especially before Christmas.

I've just got back from HR and they're going to transfer it over shortly then deduct it from my next 3 pay cheques. Phew!

The joker

I put my card behind the bar last night and they gave me this as a place holder.


Argh.... run!

Not that it would do much good if this was a nuclear explosion. Thankfully it was just the view of the sun setting from my office last night.

Dodgy clip

We saw Dodgy at the Camden Cafe last, night very good. The front man, Nigel Clark was great.
