I've been watching that series "Ice road truckers", those guys really believe they're at the pinnacle of "tough-trucking", I'd like to see them spend an afternoon getting through the congestion zone with eight drops to do.
Making our own little film called "Nice road truckers" is sounding like a good idea, I'm in.
Now to get the hell out of here. Brentford, N20, Hatfield, Bishops Stortford and Cheltenham to get through today.

. . . . . you did well to wait until I'd left. If I'd have got my hands on your scrawny little neck I'd have ripped your face off!
I left for work dead early, 30 mile drive. Just as I got there Anja called my mobile. She was hiding in the kitchen, terrified, there was someone on the roof breaking into the attic! I got her to put her coat on and get out of the house to the neighbour's while I called the police.
They arrived promptly while I was making my way back home at 100 miles an hour. By the time I got there the fun was already over, they'd arrived in two cars, Anja was safe inside with the neighbour up the road who's ex police. They sent a ruddy great dog up the stairs but he came back all disappointed. No sign of entry, looks like they climbed onto the roof and were sacred off when the house lights went on.
All the windows are security locked, there's just a small ventilator window above the wash-room I'm a little concerned about. Job to do when I get back then.
Anja's alright now, a little shocked but at work ok.
Good start to the week, I wonder what's next.

A Moblogger in a garden centre on a rainy Sunday afternoon will keep himself
amused for hours!
Easter is kind of scary really.

Bit of a discussion on whether it should be celebrated today or on the 17th march
I have to work on Monday, so today it is then!
Another discussion is whether or not Andy's green beer is wrong, very wrong or just a bit wrong.

This got swallowed up in cyber-space somewhere, was supposed to have appeared last Monday morning, but didn't, obviously.
Subject: We're staying in!

Big Munkeh & me.
Made it through Calais-Dover last night with no trouble at all, just the one dodgy looking pedestrian on the motorway just before Calais but luckily could drive straight into the port, no queues, bit of a wait for a boat but I was parked up at the customs zone in Dover by midnight and the storm hadn't kicked in by then.
It has now! Being buffeted about the carpark, which is right next to the sea.
I'm not staying here any longer though, they charge 2,25 per hour to stay here, I just braved the storm to go find the toilet block, it was so filthy that I just turned round and got out again. There used to be a little "greasy spoon" cafe here but it's closed down. So, basically, there's nothing. No facilities, no food, not even a cup of coffee.
Now I'm pretty self-sufficient in my cab, I can look after myself fine, but I chose to stay here overnight last night, thinking I'd pay their charges so as to be able to use the facilities.
Rip-Off Britain? Is alive and doing very well here on the south coast, thank you very much.
"kerching!, have a nice day"
