Love a bargain

I love a bargain, I wanted a digital watch for work, preferably something with a plastic case/strap etc as anything steel gets scratched to buggery, and I wanted something cheap & easy to read in low light. £30 and I have what must be the largest ever LCD watch. Waterproof to a far deeper depth than I will ever dive to and lighter than any watch that I have owned since the original Swatch.

Not Work Related


With a weekend off, I was planning on doing some running repairs, so I purchased a new  Drill and something I have never owned before, an Impact Driver. What a revelation, needing to drive a few 100mm+ screws, it made life so much easier. So if you are using a drill/Electric Screwdriver, stop, get yourself an impact driver.

Hugo Boss


I like Hugo Boss gear, have done for many years, their polos seem to last forever, despite near daily abuse. I am throwing some out that are over 10 years old & the only reason for most of them being disposed of, is that they appear to have shrunk, they are a little tighter round the middle than they used to be.

Anyway the original point was to be that whenever anyone comments it is always “You do know that they made the SS Uniforms, DON’T YOU?”  At which point I am usually floundering for a response.  A great many companies cosied up to Hitler & The Nazi Party, especially German ones, but also a few  British & American ones.

A Sad Day

As I have posted before, my mother was diagnosed with Cancer a little over a year ago. She gave up the fight on Thursday at 1030hrs, and will be buried at the Shamley Green Natural Burial Ground in the near future.

I have poked fun at Jade Goody and her death from Cancer, my mother had the dignity to die at home, and without feeling the need to hawk her private life to the highest bidder, I still maintain Jade Goody was a Chavy talentless bint that the world will not miss. My Mum was never a celebrity, but she was an intelligent, articulate, funny woman, who died with dignity, and fortunately without pain.
