Overcast but not in my heart (eeyukk)

Out of the country tomorrow morning. A 0330 departure from the house. Very uncivilised indeed but with luck I’ll be home again on Saturday evening. Ship survey Denmark. Denmark’s a civilised and well ordered place with bright, well mannered folks about the place. Oiks, unlike yobbo UK, are scarce and generally the place is pleasant to visit. The bacon’s very nice too, apparently.
 
Lesson learned this  morning, don’t use rapid set cement (20 minute variety) to do concreting jobs. You’ll never get it right before the bloody stuff sets. Oooh I did feel a fool. Even the moggs realised it was one large cock-up and kept clear. At least there won’t be mog pawprints or madam allastea’s slipper prints in the surface this time, that’ll go some way to mitigating the severe out of level and toughness of it all.
 
Is this a record? Rang the doctor’s surgery for an appointment yesterday, the soonest they could fit me in was in three weeks time. Bless them!!
 
 

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
