What a month April turned out to be!
So much has happened during April I really do not know where to start!
Firstly I am now a Grandad! Tayo our Grandson was born on Easter Monday weighing in at a whopping 9lb 3oz! 10 days late and with a cracking head of hair!
My daughter turned 18 on the last day of the month of April!
The A-Z challenge took over for the month, so now back to regular blogging about our day to day life.
The challenge was good fun, I did cheat and schedule posts, which was just as well, due to an unforeseen occurrence which I'm afraid I've been asked not to write about, but this totally banjaxed us for a bit.
The month started off warm and sunny, and we thought, yes! This is the start of summer, we had a couple of nice sunny weeks, and then as soon as they announce a hose pipe ban the heavens open and it hasn't stopped raining!
We had visit's from various friends and family, Kev and Just, came for a BBQ, Mr Gulliver and young Thomas stayed for a Saturday night and finally a great weekend was had when JE and his Dad Kevin turned up. Both JE and Kevin were both ex Army, JE being of the RMP kind, but we didnt hold that against him and his Dad was ex Signals same as me!
So with lots in common, and plenty of beer, we had a full on weekend of eating and drinking!
Now meeting up with JE and Kevin was all down to this blog! We did not know each other at all, but this is the thing, all of us being ex services we instantly have a bond that cannot be broken, no matter how hard you may try, it still all comes down to the fact that once your in your in!
Our awning blew down and bent a number of poles, we are currently trying to see if they can be re straightened as "M" knows someone who has an engineering company and he has said he may be able to roll them straight. Will find out over the next week.
The Pajero went in for it's MOT, glad to say that after 18 years it flew through first time and no advisories! Brilliant!
I joined a trade union! The RMT - Rail Maritime and Transport Union. I never thought I would ever join a union, but things are happening at our company which I am not completely happy with, along with the rest of the drivers. So thought it prudent to join.
This doesn't mean I'm voting Labour and becoming an anti Royalist! Far from it, but thought it may be safer in numbers!
I'm sure there are many other things that have happened during the month, but that was a quick summary!
