Well my lovely readers, how we all doing in this wet, grey and horrible land?
Its so horrible this weather with such heavy rain, even when I'm on my motorcycle the waterproofs are as much use as a paper umbrella stood under Niagara Falls.
Its been all work, work, work lately, Toys R Us is, well, Toys R Us nothing changes there. The Range is going really well and i enjoy it as I'm kept busy non stop or if they haven't got anything for me to do i find something to do, as you know my loyal subjects i can't stay still and do nothing it drives me insane. I think there are more pictures of Bigfoot than there are of me sitting down LOL. Over the past fortnight i have been asked lots more silly questions in store but one that keeps reoccurring is "Excuse me, do you work here?" as I'm stood there with a Navy t-shirt on with the orange "Range" logo embroidered on it with a navy badge with "The Range" on it in big white letters and my name. Most of the time people ask me this while I'm up a ladder, carrying heavy boxes or making up a display. The one time someone asked me "Excuse me, do you work here?" while i was in my uniform i replied "No sorry, i just like moving boxes around". its OK the customer got the joke.
As i was on my travels the other day, in fact i had stopped on my way home as i was almost blown off my motorbike in high winds. I came across a little village called Llanddarog where i noticed a sign saying "Best kept village 1961. 1971-73, 1986-87". Now i really don't get these types of signs. Its almost like saying "We took care of our village for these years but couldn't be arsed the others". There may be some people looking to move to the best kept village in Carmarthenshire and that sign may put people off.
The Gardner must be having an extended holiday since 1987 LOL.
Now as we all know on Zakynthos in my bar we have "Biscuit Club", sorry forgot I'm not allowed to talk about biscuit club. I was walking around a store in Carmarthen Town centre the other day and came across my all time favourite biscuits "Foxes Sports Biscuits" OH MY GOD! I used to love them with the little stick figures on them playing sports but to my horror they have now tried to put proper pictures on them, That's no fun. I have taken pictures of all the different ones and see if you can guess what sport the biscuits are depicting.
Now, i've just realised after uploading all these pictures Helen will now know that I've got a secret stash of biscuits somewhere in the house, BUGGER!
I got a new Smart TV the other week and its AWESOME! I can go on the net with it, use apps on it, plug an external hard drive in to it, use a keyboard & mouse through it and record programmes on it, basically its a huge computer on our wall. I was slightly disturbed by one app and its called MUTV (no not Man. Utd TV, now that would be real disturbing) no it stands for Music TV. There are lots of different music categories on it like reggae, pop, ballads and further down the pages i found Punk, brilliant! I clicked on it and to my absolute horror the first bands video in the punk section was Busted, bloody Busted! What the......, come on please anything but them. If that band is punk I'm going to throw all my punk vinyl out, how dare they smear the Punk religion with such a vile word, BUSTED, GOD HELP US! HA HA.
Been watching a TV show called "A Tale of Two Islands" its on ITV1 Thursdays at 10.30pm. I know its past some of your bedtimes LOL. You can catch up on it with ITV iplayer. Its really good but i think it doesn't show the real side of life on a Greek island as it seems to focus more on the rich side of it than the everyday life of a traditional Greek family or ex-pat. Its a bit to rose tinted glasses for me but still a good watch. This has spurred me on to finish my Docu-comedy that I've been writing over the past 2 years about a British gent who decides to pack up and move to Zakynthos to open a bar but it all goes horribly wrong showing all the pitfalls that i've seen of moving and opening a business abroad. I've taken all the bad experiences i know about from people i have met over the years of working abroad from my first time on Corfu in 1986 till now and rolled them in to the main character. So i will be trying to get it complete by April ready to send out draft copies to the TV companies to see if any interest. Lets just say it will be a sort of Spinal Tap about a business starter. "YEAH, BUT, IT GOES TO 11"
Well my beautiful blog followers that's it for another 14 days but if this rain carries on my next blog update may be about me building an Ark, make an orderly Que in pairs people LOL
