Be summer, be gone

The posts to this finest of fine blogs have reduced in frequency and content as of late dear bleaders.

Aside from a severe case of laziness this is all down to the summer. And by that, we don’t mean we’re laying on sun drenched beaches tipping wine darn our fwoats. Oh no indeed. The summer means it’s construction season in the North Sea and west of Shetland so all us MWS types (unemployable at anything else of course) are taking advantage and keeping busy. The last month was such an example. Offshore on a very new and beautiful  trenching vessel, first signs were that blogging from the beast would be a doddle and delight. No such luck though. Despite laundries the size of a Tesco Extra, an ROV hangar that would intimidate LHR Terminal 5 and acres of messrooms, the client’s office was smaller than yer average family hatchback and was deemed fit (they said) for six of us!! Tch tch. To make matters worse there was no internet connection available for us oiks. Blimey, that put a spanner in the works.

On a plus note however, it did break allatsea’s daft habit of passing the midnight hours by shopping on Amazon and EBay and coming home to a warehouseful of complete shite, newly delivered and unwanted. Every cloud has a silver lining then.

Similarly he’s offshore again in a few days. Hopefully an internet connection will be available but no breath being held. NO expectation….no disappointment…………as the adage goes.

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.
