What a difference a week makes!

This time last week I had just collapsed in a heap on the sofa after some hardcore socialising and was feeling a bit crap to be honest. Tonight, I've just collapsed in a heap on the sofa and am feeling a bit crap, no socialising this time though...

Monday I started back at work in the workshop (I know, I probably had a longer xmas holiday than you did - that's life! The Welding industry seems to stop completely over xmas as all our suppliers, delivery trucks etc stop too, not that I mind), it involved getting up in the dark and cold again, not good for the old nipples (the cold that is, not the dark... Imagine that though, nipples that were afraid of the dark - Think Abi Titmuss has a pair of those...). Work was the usual, moving metal around, cutting it up and welding it back together again, keeps the old fitness ticking over! Tuesday and Wednesday we went down to RAF St.Athan near Barry to put a metal roof on a storage shed, spent the entire two days in the half-dark, the cold and the wet, tightening bolts! Think Thomas Cook offer the same deal on their website - "Two Days in Barry, you give us £60 and we'll send you onto an air-force base to be miserable! *transport and hotels not included). To be fair though, the weather on Wednesday was lush -if not a bit windy- and would have been a great day to go hiking on the Black Mountains!

Thursday however was a different kettle of fish. Today I had an interview for a new job in Swansea with an Engineering consultancy. It's based in a small room in the top of an office block on Princess Way (near Yates' for the piss-heads). To cut a long story short, I got the job anyway - I've got a rough idea of what's involved, it all looks pretty interesting. Seems to be assessing impacts of new buildings (houses to stadiums) on the infrastructure of places like Cardiff or Swansea, pretty cool. This may mean a move down that way, hope so - it'll be cool going to live somewhere different, even if it is only Swansea!

Friday, back in the workshop today but we all had it pretty easy - everyone had a good laugh at Mark Thatcher "Unwittingly" funding a coup on a Central African country !! He thought he was funding an Air-ambulance, not a Helicopter Gunship!!

No plans for the weekend, I'm getting a teeny weeny bit excited about the Rugby (England v Wales) on the 5th of Feb. I lost sleep in the run-up to the Autumn internationals and this promises to cause more sleepless nights in a couple of weeks. Just seen the Scarlets result for tonight, they've just lost 53-36 to Toulouse. Oh shit. France for the 6N again? Probably.
