For Sale

4 x Mercedes E Class alloy wheels.

I wiped this one over with a damp cloth. They are stamped on the rear.
8J 16 H2
ET 34

They've been in my garage gathering dust and cobwebs for a few years now.

Top right is the wheel in the worst condition.

I'm told they sell for silly money per wheel and can be restored £50 a wheel.

Scouse Flit

Sophie does the offski, flitting off to Liverpool to spend the week with her Dad.

Joy chased her up the platform before bursting into tears after which, we spent a few hours walking the streets of London.

Birthday Girl

DJ celebrates her 18th birthday and makes a happy man feel somewhat old!

Marcos in Rayleigh is a great place for a night out and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Spanish Tapas. 

A follow up next day at TGI's.

The dragonfly's are back but this year they are blue striped.

Karen's Fairey Godmother went to work on the pumpkin.

The mice also got the treatment and the local cats started to worry about revenge.

Black & Gold

"They grew legs and they started walking" The frogpoles are leaving the water, still sporting tails this little fellow sits on the rock with my camera inches away. Looks like he'll soon be leaving the gene pool too?

You Got A Friend

Bold as brass or just plain daft, this young fox let his curiousity get the better of him.

Got him with the water pistol. ;-)

Look Who's Back!



An on-line translation does not do it justice but I'm happy to find that it doesn't actually read 'Kick Me, I'm Stupid'

Something Fishy

The goldfish made it through the iceage so the Mrs decided to spring clean their gaff and give it a refurb! :-)

Ring A Roses

Nice to see the sunshine, these little blue flowers seem to be doing a celebratory dance around the tree. B-)

Beats Me

"I seem to remember he had these stripped drum sticks! which we thought were cool,and he smashed f*@# out of the JJ Foote kit."

You mean something like this Jeff? It's just insulation tape wrapped around them to help with grip.

I got this in 2007, he hasn't changed much, just got older. Living in Denmark and still plays for Slade (Mk.2) but no Noddy & Jim. He recently guested on Danish band, The Guv'nors, album, Pint Of No Return.

Hah, best shot I could get in the crap lighting but it ain't too bad?

Up On The Hill

Hard to believe it's Basildon sometimes. Won't be long till the Bluebells come out and the woods turn into a magical place again.

Probably because of all the bodies buried there? ;-P

It's Official!

Spring is officially late this year!

According to the TV this morning, the Daf's are about three weeks behind on their development due to the inclement weather. I guess that means the snow messed up more than just the traffic this year then?

Lego Land

Each time I drive past this wonderful scene, I am put in mind of the current ad on TV that uses red lego bricks to build real houses, etc. What a bloody eyesore!

You'd think a less prominent colour would have been used so as to NOT draw attention, or maybe I'm missing the point?

Who Left That There?

Right in the middle of the front garden, I say garden, its more like a bathroom floor made of grass. In fact, I know people with bigger bathrooms?

The point is, we didn't plant that there so somebody is obviously sneaking around planting bulbs in random places. What a bloody liberty!

Hush My Mouth

It ain't clever and I'm not impressed. This has gone on long enough now.

If I wanted to be cold and miserable I'd move to Scotland. :-(

It's A Sign

Still a few weeks to go but things are looking up.

Little things please little minds... maybe but I love 'little things' like this.

Looks like Spring is springing.

S'no Joke

Blue skies this morning, the sun warming my face through the window.

A short blizzard later and everything is a cold, white mess.

Why is it that the weatherman never cock it up when they are giving us bad news? :-(

So Proud

My daughter has finally realised her true potential. She managed to thread a red liquorice 'strawberry bootlace' through her pierced tongue.

Blog My Arse?

I started messing about with a blog on MySpace a few years back but couldn't be bothered to keep logging in to mess about. The fact that I had to be in front of my pc and on the internet was the main problem. Far too many interesting things to distract me.

Just discovered this facility on my mobi. Think I might have a use for this?
