Tis Wednesday

Midweek summary, hold the front page.

Today was the first day for a fortnight without Allatsea being sledgehammered by a migraine type thing. Hooray and thank you lord of sailors and neer do wells.

Renewed car tax on Monday afternoon online. Disc turned up today. Impressive. MOT passed last week but with the recommendation that the front brake discs are renewed. This will be done tomorrow morning…. Thank you Ivanhoe Motors of Westgate, your prompt execution of this task is much appreciated.

Allatsea will be a dutiful son on Friday morning when he takes mummy Allatsea to Morrisons in Margate for her weekly shop. This normally includes 4 bottles of scotch but, ‘I’m not an alcoholic, apparently’. It must run in the family. Watch out Morrisons. On the subject of alcoholics, drunky nuncky was out of his tree by lunchtime today. Pratt!!

The new work regime of a week on followed by a week off (or multiples there of) has taken a bit of a tumble, early days too. Software for the VTS, delivery issue, it’s late so next week’s training has been postponed. Not bothered to be honest, thankfully no cash flow problems at the towers. Perhaps, bringing back the alcoholic theme, I should just encamp at Wetherspoons for a week. It’ll help pass the time. Either that or some kind soul out there perhaps, wants a ship surveying, in Antigua preferably? I’m your man, £1000 a day plus expenses + 5% should see things right. I await your call.

Failing that, I’ll dig your garden over for beer money, it’s your call.

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.
