An emergency gig.

So on Friday I thought I’d got a weekend off. How wrong I was! Friday night had me working and logging power consumption on an electrical installation. What did amaze me, however, is how little it did actually use! Until you realise that everything uses so much less energy because all the lighting is LED.Continue reading “An emergency gig.”

I went silver

A random comment made a few days ago set me off thinking – I’m very aware that I have male pattern baldness, but someone said if I went white or grey it wouldn’t be as obvious. Today I booked in at the hairdressers and this happened. Waiting… Note the jeans! Before… Trimmed up and readyContinue reading “I went silver”

The epic gig.

Yesterday was yet another epic run out for a gig. I’m getting tired of these two hour journeys now (*there’s light at the end of the tunnel as a local agent has now took us on). The A1 all the way up to Newcastle for a change – no A19 required. A few changes thoughContinue reading “The epic gig.”

Buggering bollocks!

That moment when you get back to work having queued through a monumental traffic jam, only to realise you still have the keys for the building in your pocket. Not wanting to face the traffic again, I decided to use my Fiido for a real practical use – caught a train to Wakefield, rode acrossContinue reading “Buggering bollocks!”

Musings and piercings.

So Mrs Loons is buying me three new earrings for Christmas, in the style of the three inner planets. Now that set me thinking, and as someone who has always been a fan of ear piercings and has always wanted a sizeable number up each ear, I think I have a plan. Hear me out…Continue reading “Musings and piercings.”

What’s with all the hate guys?

I sparked controversy a couple of days ago. I’ve had some pretty opinionated comments on Instagram from people who have since been removed from my circles. Why? I hear you ask? Well consider this photo. I’m out on my Fiido enjoying a ride. I’ve got the trailer hitched on the back and I’ve just beenContinue reading “What’s with all the hate guys?”

Snow! Again!

We have had a rather snowy winter this year. We have often gone for 2 years with no snow but this year we’ve had a few bouts of heavy snow which have settled. This morning I started work late. Too hazardous at first to take the van out, so I went to mum’s in theContinue reading “Snow! Again!”

What’s in my bag, 2021

Years ago I used to carry a bag with me containing laptops, battery bricks, cables, in fact loads of stuff! They weighed a tonne but it was what I needed. Nowadays, however, my “bag” is variable depending on what I intend to do. These are the items that go in my full size travel bag;Continue reading “What’s in my bag, 2021”
