The Sweeny aka Clare Sweeny…what a sort!

I would dearly love to meet her and ask her many questions of life changing importance…or maybe even buy her a drink…or crack rude jokes…or even……..



Horse versus RRV…guess who won?

November 8, 2006

This is the result of an altercation between a RRV and a charging horse…!

Whilst on standby, the RRV was passed an emergency and proceeded to drive towards the location. This was late at night/early hours of the morning with the streets deserted.

Within literally a couple of minutes of setting off the RRV was greeted by the site of a full grown horse charging down the main road towards him. He took swift evasive action and braked hard and threw himself across the passenger seat.

Next second an almighty crash and bang hit the car with much blood and tissue and sinew flying in different directions.

The RRV driver was not injured but the horse suffered an horrific chest injury which appeared to be non survivable…luckily the vet managed to save the horse and it made a full recovery.

Just goes to show that you don,t know whats around the corner!!!

A certain RRV had a bit of a mishap yesterday morning. The car battery was flat so a jump start was attempted. Only thing was the car was parked facing the station…cue one car being rolled/pushed backwards and ignition/systems are go…Brrrooommm! (crap car noise I know)….straight into a parked car belonging to another member of staff!!!


Good Advice…

November 8, 2006

Right then I should be able to start posting more stuff with images and interesting titbits now that I have been given some excellent advice from Carmelo Alongi.

Just give me time to sort it out in between shouts at work and sleeping after my night shifts at home. (I dont mean that I,ve been doing night shifts at home…)

Thanks Carmelo…will email you if I get stuck. 

What I,d rather be doing….!

Back to the Full Moon people!

November 7, 2006

Well I had a fantastic few days away in the Lake District. Walking on High Raise and St. Johns in the Vale…with a few quiet moments of reflection in the church.

Some serious scrambling on the ridges (Swirral and Striding Edge) on Helvellyn…my favourite mountain.

Lots of Guiness on the night time to ease the old muscles and so aid restful sleep!

Then back to so called civilisation for Bonfire Night and two days of constant bombardment all around by very loud Chinese pyrotechnics.

And so to work…my first night shift of 4 on the trot. First job tramping around in a very large cemetary trying to find a ?17 year female glue/gas  sniffer….managed to find thousands of “purple plus” bods but no sniffer.

Another couple of jobs involving psychy peeps….earliar crew got one who took a hacksaw to his head!

Two hours left then I,m off home to my nice warm bed! Just so long as we dont get a late job!!!!!!!!!!
