300,000 hits, I'm out of here, a kick in the crackers..........

.....but thanks very much people for the reading and commenting!

Going on annual leave today (not really going anywhere until I'm told otherwise) and will wander around your blogs whenever I get the chance and will be back on the 10th of April.....

...but today I was told that I will be moving back on shift at work at the beginning of June (still as supervisor) due to staff losses and the site situation continuing (site still being demolished around us) but that I will be back working with Ray!!!!!!(it's getting difficult to type now due to the pain).......


.........we did work on shift together before but it took a lot of patience on my part and a lot of wisdom on his, I need to sign off now as the tears are making it difficult to continue and thanks again people!

  4. 300k is great going... I had a little happy dance when I realised that I am approaching 10k lol. Thing is, unlike many other blogs out there with oodles of followers, yours contribute by their comments, so it's a genuinely popular blog rather than a 'follow me and I'll follow you' one. Well done!

    Enjoy your break, maybe you could go into a zen like retreat to enhance your calm before facing your nemesis?

  5. What a milestone in reaching 30,000 and I'm sure working with Ray can't be such a millstone! Have a great break my good man, you deserve it.

  9. Relax, put your brushes down for a short rest, and enjoy watching the grass grow, Lurker. And oh yes...the parable of the Smelly Situation is a favorite story of countless Beings told daily throughout the universe!

  14. 300,000 thats just plain greedy!!! Well done though, you deserve the following.

    Shifts eh? will that slow down both you and Fran on the painting front?
