A tranquil post.

It’s that time of the week again and although I haven’t got much hobby news, there have been some things that have kept me entertained.

Friday night was a Timmy’s night and this week was ladies night so in true military tradition, there were plenty of blokes dressed in women’s clothing as well as plenty of lads and lasses dressed normally. Fortunately, I was on door duty so was dressed in uniform. The evening went really well; there was a live band, a DJ for when the band took breaks and there were prizes for the best dressed ‘woman’. Plenty of drink was sold and there was no trouble (apart from a minor argument that could have erupted into something worse but I got in quick and stopped the trouble before it started) so I was happy.

On Saturday, I worked the morning and then went to San Carlos in the afternoon; staying overnight at the home of a folk singer called Andie Neate (she’s played at Glastonbury many times) and her fiancé (who was taken hostage by the Argentineans when they invaded in 1982... he was only a baby though). I went there with a group of our lads from work to help strip out a large out-house. It was amazing the amount of history that was in the building... including a newspaper from May 19th, 1982). We finished all the work as it started to get dark and spent the evening chilling out with food, beer and song. Here's a song:


 It was a positively brilliant way to spend a weekend... it was almost like we weren’t in the Falklands! The sun has been glorious all weekend and staying on the farm, overlooking the bay was so peaceful and beautiful.

As for the rest of the week, it has very much been a case of work and Gym... although I have done a small amount of sculpting on my Squats but not enough to show pictures of yet.

That’s about it for now.

See you from the tranquil waters!
