    It’s been DAM HOT this week, but things still seem to be moving at a million miles an hour. This spell of weather has played tricks with my eyes twice this week on my drive into work. Looking up towards the hills I see what looks like smoke giving me that feeling of “Oh crap who’s is that?”...

    What a week, King Kev and Cool Hand Luke still chasing water leaks, Boss Man Chris and Brother Paul chasing wheat and digging over big bang gas pipes! Cool Hand Luke and King Kev started the week chasing more water leaks. The first was on an irrigation system which the client decided the best...

    Going warm again but now playing the rain game! Hope the weather is being kind to you all during harvest. Monday had King Kev carrying out camera surveys on blocked fowl drains. Morning TV has nothing on watching drain survey videos at Breakfast on the first day of the working week!! On the...

    Friday again and blimey weren’t Monday and Tuesday warm? Tempers were flaring, roads were melting, people were melting, and our local shop nearly ran out of ice creams! But we all still plugged on. Mad dogs and Englishmen springs to mind! Monday saw Boss Man Chis and King Kev start another...

    SCORCHIO!! What a week, been gloriously hot, we even had a wee drop of warm rain but I for one am loving this weather. Although I did feel for the tarmac contractors who were doing the road outside our office on Monday and Tuesday. That, I may tell you was warm! Monday saw all the lads out near...

    Friday and what a glorious Friday it is Sunny, warm, and the promise of a fantastic weekend. Monday saw all hands-on deck at Cheltenham Racecourse with Cool Hand Luke and King Kev leading the charge to finish off the topping up of the drain runs, tidy up and bring the kit back. It is always...

    I know its Thursday, but I have a day off tomorrow 😊 Last day of June!! Time certainly is flying when you are having fun, or fixing water pipes, or laying concrete or getting ready to pop to Cheltenham Racecourse for a wee bit of drainage. Boss Man Chris took Dilly-Bob out of the workshop...

    What a glorious week 😊 The sun has been shining, today is the allegedly going to be the hottest day of the year so far, the lads have been busy and everyone seems jolly, well except Dilly-Bob. The “damaged sewer” we looked at last week at Stratford Racecourse turned out to be nothing more than...

    Well God Save the Queen! What a weekend that was!! Hope you all had fun. Strange ol’ week this one, the lads have been hard at it, finishing off the pump station install, mowing the grass for next door before they set up for the rail event going on in a couple of weeks, catching the sun in...

    A short week this week with the old Jubilee celebrations and all that. King Kev and Cool Hand Luke finished off the backfilling and electric cable installation for the sewage treatment plant they were on last week. Just a case of waiting for it to arrive and then it will be hey presto, Bob’s...

    Its that time at the end of the week that we all like to call Friday and to be honest, it's been quite a calm week. . . . well except for the part where my keyboard broke (it can't stand the pace) and I had to use a pen!! With handwriting like mine, I would qualify to be a Doctor! As I said...

    Friday is upon us once again; it keeps coming round but then I suppose that that is how the calendar works! What a week, King Kev and cool Hand Luke have been busy on a pump station, Boss Man Chris has been catching up with the estimates and yesterday was out looking at some wet spots near...

    Friday the 13th!! Those of you who are superstitious, stay home, we don’t want you worrying the rest of us! Its not been too shabby a week on the weather front, well apart from Wednesday, bit of a damp day for all. I do understand that it was quite "grim up north" after a conversation with...

    So, the first week of May is now behind us, the weather has been half glorious, the lads have been quite jolly this week, must be the weather.

    The last weekend of April!! Where has this year gone, and will the weather Gods bring us a wee dram of water at some point in the not-too-distant future? We have been hearing quite a few comments lately about how dry it's been. Had a quick check on the interweb this morning and apparently the...
