Genesis....The Beginning

Posted 21-03-2005 at 00:07 by Busman747 (The Life and Times of Busman...)

My very first on-line diary...and it suddenly disappeared into the depths of the ethernet....all because Roy pushed a wrong key

Well, at least it gives me the opportunity to start afresh and I will start my new diary with some background on who I am and where I came from

Born in Totternhoe, a village just outside Dunstable, Bedfordshire on the 10th April 1952 (Yippee, its my birthday soon.) I am the eldest of three, my sister is 5 years younger than me and my "little" brother (who weighs around 18 stone) is 10 years younger.

I lived a very protected life as a child as I was isolated from the townies until I was eleven and had to leave the village school to go to "Britain Street"...

It's a shoe thing.

At last!! I have managed a full nights sleep without waking up at some unearthly hour. Full of renewed vigour I decided to have a bit of a clear out. The only thing is that I have accrued so much crap over the years that I didn't know where to start.

I daren't start under the stairs because it is so crowded with stuff that I can hardly get in there. I'm not exaggerating, my dad went under there to find a lightbulb last November and he's never been seen since. Every drawer and cupboard in my house contains stuff that I never wear or use. I even have baking trays in my kitchen cupboards and haven't baked anything since leaving school in 1984.

I decided to start on one of the kitchen drawers. I tend to keep old insurance...

Upgrades and stuff.....

Posted 30-12-2007 at 14:38 by Roy (Roy's blog?!)

I'm currently on holiday from work (well, it is christmas isn't it?) but still I have work to do! Due to me working away all the time and generally with limited t'interweb access I don't get much time to upgrade and look after my websites. So for the last 2 days I've been revising backup plans, rewriting scripts and upgrading sites. All good fun whilst also trying to spend quality time with the wife and kids!

I hope to do some more work with Accyweb this next week, including a new look and a bit of optimization....

A good old girly day.

I had to go to Manchester today to pick up a pan.......that's right, a pan!!!!! Since Sparks moved in I have turned into a domestic goddess. Ok, the bit about being a domestic goddess is a fib. I still can't abide cleaning up but I have had a bit of success in the cookery department.

People who have read my blog know that I use my oven for storage and the only thing that I have successfully made in the kitchen is a mess or a fire. In the last few months I have learned how to cook a bit and now make a mean Ocean Pie. I have found that the only pans which even I can't stick anything to are the Anolon pans but these are quite expensive.

On Saturday, we went to the Printworks at Manchester to see a film. Before going...

A funny thing happened in Fendi.

This is a bit of a catch up from last year. For anyone who has read the 'Wobbly Tour' thread in User Photos, you will know what a superb time we had in Australia last January. It wasn't all plain sailing though because my holidays never are. The travel arrangements went swimmingly but my financial arrangements took a sharp downturn on the very first day of the holiday and I had to rapidly resort to plan B.

It all started in Hong Kong, we had a stopover on our way to Sydney, just for one night. Hong Kong is a brilliant city and a shoppers paradise. For anyone who loves to get an electrical bargain or a designer bargain, this is the place to go, honestly, you can be Gucci, Fendi and Manolo'd to death here. I had been saving...
