Today I awoke intending to do some weight training and go for a swim.  In the end I felt a bit 'iffy', so decided instead to do nothing all day.  I did it with enthusiasm.  :) I recently read somewhere that there are positive health benefits to having a day every so often where you do nothing.  Seems like a plan.

Has to make sense. Not that long ago Sunday was a rest day. Are we really better off with a seven day a week culture?

Everyone seems to be in a rush (or on their mobile phone) these days. It wasn’t like that when I was younger (oh dear sound like an old fogey),  people seemed kinder and had time for things, but perhaps that is rose coloured spectacles?

This might not be relevant but have just got back home from my annual pilgrimage to Nottingham, to find through my letterbox a greeting from Nottingham council. I had apparently strayed onto a bus lane and the council graciously sent me a £60.00 fine !! I thought what a nice way to welcome me home, that the council remembered one of it's sons. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU NOTTINGHAM !

But whatever it's called, it involves having to pay out some money, doesn't it?  In a strange, busy town or city, it's more difficult to realise when you've strayed on to a bus lane, though.

I bow to your superior knowledge Catfan. Call it what you like, it's still a dive in your pocket. Actually, having re-read the the paperwork, it is called ' Bus lane penalty charge notice'. Anyway I've paid the bloody thing. Next time I come up to Nottingham I think I'll come up on a bicycle.

Us Neanderthal's still use steam television. Thank you for your kind thoughts Margie. B.

Hey Catfan,  just noticed where you reside. I myself and 'er indoors lived at Snape Wood for a number of year but we got better. Moved to East Sussex in 1987. It pays to keep one step ahead of the law. But as stated earlier, the bu99ers catch up with ya !! Merry Christmas Catfan.

Problem was Beekay, you fell foul of the city council's "Hate the Motorist" policy" ! Remember someone has to fund the tram.

Scumbag council employing scumbag private car parking & enforcement company again.

 

Hey Beekay perhaps you took a dive moving from Snapewood to Sussex ? Or perhaps you had to leave in a hurry ? Mesen, I don't live in Snapewood. I live in Bulwell & there's nowt wrong wi Bulwell youth !

Merry Christmas Beekay.

Catfan, just to mention, my family originate from bulwell. My gran lived on commercial road and my eldest brother was born on Lime Street. My aunt and uncle had the cross keys, up commercial rd., and my aunt Annie and uncle bill lived near 'Top House'. Had some relatives living up China town. When I first started on N.C.T. I had happy memories on the 43 trollies in Bulwell market. Also used to drive for Makemsons for a while, market to Best wood village and evening run to Calverton pit for night staff. Can I be the first to wish you  'Happy Easter !!  B.

Yesterday:- Finally picked up my new car (Ordered on August 1st for collection 1st November, but it was delayed as long as possible as it's the new 2019 model, 8 speed automatic gear box and other new 'whistles and bells' I also had to wait for a hoist for my scooter and hand controls to be fitted.................. But at least I'm back driving again for the first time properly in 3 years!!!!)
 Also got my bathroom finished by my 'bessie' mate, to SWMBO and my spec with a shower screen as opposed to their idea of a curtain (Horrible smelly things!) and cabinets and shelves as the council wouldn't let us do it till the job was 'signed off' !
 Got most of the Christmas decs up, just the fireplace and the outside lights to do.

This time, this day, last year I was on a BA flight to Heathrow for my Christmas/New year break. This year I am just about to go to Nice airport to pick up my Christmas guests - friends from Sussex who have not stayed in France previously. I'm expecting a couple of weeks of very arduous graft.

This time this day in 1978 I was at my youngest sons funeral. He was nine years old. Hope your friends from Sussex enjoy their stay Jonab.

They say time is a good healer Beekay but Im sure you would dispute that after losing your son at such a young age.  Sending my best wishes to you and your wife.

 

Jonab, I’m sure your Sussex friends will thoroughly enjoy their time in S of France.  You’ll no doubt be official tour guide for a week or so.  Have fun.

Coming past Bulwell Library 1976.

 

One bay window of the 360 Club visible on right, just before the hoarding.  Lovely old Bulwell Library on the left.  Some clown parked a bus in the way and spoiled the view.. ;)

Sadly the library closed a few years ago, but has relocated into the new Health Centre Complex. Not the same now though, as it mainly caters for girls and toddlers. Only went in once...... Mayhem !
