a little internet time

Ok so i thought I'd quickly check my emails and I've ended up writing on here. the hotel / resort is a lovely place, they even have some lovely looking office bits scattered around with gyms in so there must be a garden office company out here somewhere or maybe they import them.

anyway I'm tanning up nicely, so i'm of back to chillax by the pools

From beyond the laptop

HAHA this post is coming from me last week, I've just told it to post while i'm away. hopefully when i'm on my way-back i can stop off in the Duty Free and get a few bottles of spirits so that i can fill my hip flasks up on the cheap without breaking the bank.

I can remember when i went to Cuba few years back now and you could buy bottles of Cuban Rum for around £5 probably less, i can remember we brought back loads of it. That's when the exchange rate was massively in our favor.

Anyway i'm off now and my computer might post another blog post this week if your lucky

Next Week

Well I've got my luxury holidays booked I'm going next week, Ive got a sweet deal on a fortnights break at sandy lane barbados. it looks really posh and has all the facility that anyone can need or require. Theres even a golf course to play, so i might take up golf while I'm away.

Its all inclusive so its food food food non stop when ever you want. I'm heading out on tuesday for 14 nights so by the time i get back from my barbados holidays i should be fully tanned and relaxed

I've got a holiday booked its taken me a while to get it sorted but I've finally got it booked after spending months looking through varying Antigua holidays and hotels from Blue Waters to Carlise Bay Antigua which is finally the hotel / resort that I've picked.

Theres loads of cool factors that made me choose Carlise Bay, such as the lovely looking swimming pool three restaurants all of which look awesome, and the food looks kick ass.

Even a gym which i might use a few times, and then if i like it i might sign up for a gym here.

Well my parents are splashing the cash and having a fancy garden room built by Oeco, they say it will take them just under a week to get in from foundations to a finished fit. They are leaving it un painted as my dad wants to paint it, but they are getting extra power points and 2 extra windows put in.

I'm not really sure what they are going to use it for, but I'm sure they'll find some use for it.

I'll pop round in the week so i can see what progress is been made, i think it will be interesting to watch the whole build process from start to finish.

Work Trip To London

Well I've got a work training day and its down in London, they are putting me up in a St Pancras hotel for the night as well just so i don't have to travel back late and then go to work tired, hopefully staying over the night means i will be back for lunch.

I gave my boss the details of the Jesmond Dene Hotel where i stayed when i was down in the big smoke a few months back

I need to travel down early morning but as least i don't have to worry about it been a long day :)

Hopefully the weather will stay nice and allow me to have a nice beer garden lunch. I love going down to London as its a nice change of scenery to the up here.

Online Dating

Well i was at work the other day and i was talking to one of the younger lads there and he was telling me how he's signed up on a online dating website. i thought it was quite brave of him to say and if I'd signed up I'd be keeping to my self. his reasoning was that its hard when your out as your there for a laugh and a few beers not to find women haha.
I've not told anyone else at work mainly because it isn't their business, but also he's one of the few that i get on with so without him to talk to work would be a nightmare. hopefully he'll find someone that he can date, if he can't then we'll have to get him a picture from google to put as his profile pic

Whats What

I've decide to leave the whole wordpress hosting thing for a while as i just don't think that I'm going to have the time to devote to run a blog fully currently.

Hopefully i can keep up here on blogger and then some how port it all over to my blog as and when i get it sorted.

I even had an email from shiva head shop who when we where down in London we took some pictures of their shop and they've seen my kids blog with the pictures on so have asked for a copy.

Busy Again

Well it looks like i won't be getting my hosting setup, unless my friend gets back to me tonight about it and then it also depends on how late i feel like staying up to sort it as i know that once i get on with it that i won't be able to put it down until it looks half decent. so i could be up till the early hours.

Hopefully on Monday I'll have a defined answer on what I'm donig blog wise

Hosting could be complicated

Well i spent around 2 hours looking at wordpress hosting over the weekend and it turns out that its bit of a mine field, theres data storage file transfer, i'll have to speak to my friend who knows a bit more about this stuff and see what he recommends. I've got bit of a list down Heart Internet, and

Hopfully he'll be able to get back to me this week so that i can get it ordered for next weekend.

Spare Time

Although spare time of any sort is currently pretty rare, i would like to get my own blog sorted which means i need to look in to wordpress hosting which no doubt isn't going to be a quick 10 minute job my any means.

I really like using blogger because its free and i have no need to update it all the time, if i get a wordpress blog then it's going to cost me for hosting which i'd probably pay for anually, but then i'm going to have to blog often and monetise to make it worth my time been spent on it. I had a text from a friend the otehr night saying that everyone uses wordpress now over a old traditional html website and website hosting.

So i'm going to try and get 1hr at the weekend when i can look deeper into blogging

Work :(

works really busty at this time of year, which also means more work for me. I've been watching the new David Jason comedy "The Royal Body Guard" on the iPlayer, i thought the start of the first episode was a bit over dramtic but over half way through its pretty comical and definetly worth watching. David jason plays a pretty good role and im hoping he keeps it up for the series.

Back to work

Here's one of the photos of London, well to be accurate the London Eye.

I'm glad that Christmas and the new year are over though and that everyone is starting to get into some normal routine. The hotel that we stayed in must be part of a group or something as they sent me an email offering money off kings cross hotels. It seemed like a good deal so I'm heading back down for the summer months not sure when probably the first week in august and have a nice long weekend. I might have a look for london bed and breakfast hotels in other areas and see if i can get a cheap price.

I'm back to work on Monday after taking an extended Xmas break, I'll be glad to be back as its been a little boring at home
