Dear God it’s been a long day… After going to bed last night feeling nice and warm after a little glass of that sloe gin, I was rudely awoken at about 0330 by the pager going off. Actually, I was woken by Mal after he’d turned the pagers off – I have to admit that […]

So the weather finally broke…after weeks of working in an office while the sun was shining, I’m due to spend the weekend marshalling cars at The Big Cheese, and it rains. Bloody typical. So today was good fun as was last year, though there was some silly politics and general running around sorting things out. […]

Right, this is not a post about leather fetish gear. Well, I suppose it depends on what your fetish is I suppose… Anyway, I need help (shutup Jon). I quite like the kind of accessories currently being classed as “surfer wear” – stuff made of natural leather, hemp, stone and shells – if you see […]

I have white hair. I have a white beard. My skin is white. My snot is white. When I sneeze, a small cloud of dust rises off of me. Yes, we’ve finished sanding down the polyfilla’d walls and we’re ready to “size” them before papering (apparently, that’s putting a weak coat of paste over them […]

There’s a callout in progress, a search for a woman. Where is it? Cross Hands. Where’s that I hear you ask. I’ll tell you where it is. It’s about 4 miles from the village where I grew up, it’s where the school I attended for 7 years of my life is. So, you ask, why […]

In between bouts of fixing configurations for a customer, I popped up to base with Mal last night to do some training. Ran through the rigging of a horizontal lower[1][2] followed by a raise[3] and practised it a few times as well as rigging up the back end of the system, something I’ve not had […]

Just got back from another callout. Look like summer is starting to get going for us – didn’t school break earlier this week? Anyway, haven’t got a huge amount of details – the air ambulance was there by the time I arrived, so not much left for me to do. Leg injuries in Clun Gwyn […]

Jon and I both needed to chill out last night, so I dragged Jon up to Senghenydd to slap some of the beef we bought the other day on the BBQ. I have to admit that the “steaks” were so thin it was more like bacon but made of beef. But very nice and with […]

Hooray for CardGuard! I’ve just had a telephone call, apparently someone dropped my keys into a letterbox and they’ve just arrived at their offices. Probably took Royal Mail a while to work out what to do with them…[1] So the upshot of this is that on Monday, my keys will arrive at the office by […]
