Sunny Saturday Evening

Well its now Saturday, and I am 22, so that makes this the first post of my 22nd year 🙂 And the second post this week lol!

Thursday went off well, it was nice and sunny when I woke up and it stayed that way all day, in fact I cant remember a year were it has not been sunny on my birthday!

I got a bookcase from my parents, I didn’t know what I wanted for my birthday, so that all I got, and £60!
From my sister I got a pack of beer, and £22!
From my girlfriend I got an MP3 player, a USB aquarium, and two Mr Bean cartoon DVD’s number 1 and 4!

The trip to the zoo lasted all day! We got there about 11:30 am and left just before 5:30 pm
We walked around every where, and I’ve got 59 photos to prove it!

On Friday we went to Cheddar Gorge

The day started off overcast, but it cleared about 2pm
We started off walking up and down the road looking in all the shops then we started walking up the road through the gorge.
Some where up that road we found a path up the hill side so we walked back along the top and back into Cheddar.
We got back to Cheddar about 5:15 pm, and we were walking for about 2 hours!
I’ve also got some photos from Cheddar, mainly of the views on our walk!

I’ve just opened a Flickr account so I’ll upload most of the photos there.
I’ve started with some of the other 200 odd photos I’ve got on my computer.
At the moment I’ve got some of the nicer close ups uploaded, but I will upload more.

Its Saturday evening and Bristol Rovers and Bristol City have both won their matches, and me and my girlfriend are now going out for some dinner!

Till next time.

Windy!!

Boy was it windy today!

Unfortunately in work one of the main doors that the lorries are unloaded through was broken, it was broken by the wind some time last week.
This meant that the wind was coming through the warehouse through the grocery corridor and onto the shop floor.

In the corridor we have a rubbish cage (also know as: comp; roll-cage) where we put the cardboard from the shop floor before putting it into the compactor.
The wind was so strong that it was pushing against the cardboard in the cage and it was rolling onto the shop floor.

Later on in the evening the other main door was closed, but it got stuck down, the motor that winds it up burnt out or something like that!
I came back down after my break and the door was open, it had been fixed!
Usually it takes one to two days for someone to come out to fix the doors, but today someone came out and had fixed it within half an hour!

I’m back!

I am!

The weather was better this year, thou we did have a couple of rainy nights, and we did get a rainy day or two during the last week.

We ended up spending two nights in Spain. It was the second night that we had a thunder storm. it only lasted about 2 or 3 hours, but before that we could see lightening lighting up the sky, but we couldn’t hear the thunder.
Spain was also the hottest part of the holiday, we passed a garage and the sign said that the temperature was 40C.

We then traveled across France towards the Mediterranean, and stayed in a campsite near Montpelier. We then started to head north, crossed the Millau Viaduct.
Then we went back to the west coast to Bordeaux, and then travelled further north into Brittany, where it got a bit cooler.
We then headed towards the north coast of Brittany to a campsite that we visited last year. We stayed for 4 nights.
On the Saturday we moved to a campsite that was just 15 minutes from the ferry port in Roscoff.

I’ll post more about the holiday during the next few weeks, and I will find some links to the campsites that we visited.

More later.

An Update

Well, its July 7, one year after the London bombing. I unfortunately missed the two minutes silence at noon.

In other news mum and my sister went off on their holidays on Saturday (1st July) leaving just me and dad on our own.
That weekend and Monday and Tuesday were hot, with the temperature reaching 30C (about 86F).
I have my computer lying on its side with the (other) side off just to get some cool air circulating. On Monday I had a fan pointing at it, and when I moved the fan away it froze. Since, I haven’t had any problems with it freezing.

Wednesday it was drizzling, and during the night it absolutely pissed down. During Thursday it was raining in the morning, and by the evening it was beginning to dry out.
The ford in Henbury was flooded, and nearly went up to the entrance of Crow Lane.
The bottom deck of the bus got flooded out.

On Sunday evening I drove on my own for the first time!
I went down to Clevedon via the A370 to Congresbury, then the B3133 to Clevedon.
I came back by the motorway.

I think that is all
