I think I have a job on monday

I think I have a job on monday. Only thing is I have no pick up or delivery. No text and no email.
Happy Monday.christmas is upon me
 I feel like going out in full Santa outfit. I did that one christmas eve.......no one commented. Some did not notice in the supermarket.
Getting the van a pair of antlers....I saw some on a car. This is the way to go I thought.

Having a little trouble with a new neighbour. He thinks he can yell and swear at me. I have a big van. He has noticed through his drunken haze. And yes I park it at the back of MY house.
Tomorrow it will have antlers too. Wonder how he cope with that stumbling along from the pub, yelling and swearing.
Merry christmas.
Yes I did have a job. I got the from and too address and set off into the wind and rain. I found my reindeer hat with antlers. I do not look silly at all. the customer did not actually comment....jaw dropped a bit. mind you it is warm!
sally did not come with me. she has gone to see the landlords for neighbour. never hack off a woman who had a mastectomy. never swear at any woman, especially my wife.


www.vanandaman.co.uk over to ilkley.

Very arty rain today. The irritating damping kind. Moving a customer from Guiseley to ilkley..
 I was hoping for snow. Believe it or not it is far easier to deal with than rain.and for that matter it looks much better too.
 More romantic.
With snow...so long as it is new, the customers stuff does not get ruined either.still never mind.


 There were plenty of people to help and we managed to keep moving quickly.
the whole job took only a couple of hours as we all moved very very slickly in the freezing cold rain. customer happy. Money in wallet.
sally and Monza the dog also came along. Monza did some barking and Sally helped out with some of the smaller stuff. she then wandered off to discover Mydleton lodge. For sally this was a very exciting discovery. the ancestral home of the Middleton's back in the 1500's. Of course they are related to American emigrates
.Sally has a soft spot for. The Mauleverers. So she was regaling me with her find all the way back to Otley
 The main house was originally started in the 1500's. the main stair case is by all accounts original!...any way the main house is for sale at just over two and a half million.

Sally loves it and wants me to buy it NOW! well as it goes I am the full asking price short at this time. Must get some more van work quickly. I wonder how long It will take to earn that kind of money as www.vanandaman.co.uk !!!????
Part of the estate is now a catholic retreat.....very quiet and thoughtful.......
 The only (slight) down side to it is the cost....and it is very remote. Sally would love it for a while and then wish she lived nearer to the junk shops in Otley....
speeking of which......

On the way back home we stopped off at Otley. We did the usual Weegeman's the butchers and then on to the 99p shops.......sally spotted two Cabbage patch kids......I bought her one. I really wish I got them both now....as I will never hear the end of it if it is not there when I am nagged to go back on Monday.....

This one came complete with clothes and shoes....which are not in this photo as they are being washed. this doll is from 2004. sally already has one from 1978.
Christmas is upon is a father is coming over to shop. had better sneek back to Otley first thing and get the other one.............

www.vanandaman.co.uk out and about.

 up early fortunately. The dog alarm had gone off. Out I went into the fresh Bracing morning, monza dog had his contetutionals...... I had a swift ciggy, then made tea. Just in time for the phone to ring at 7.30 am. What's the matter with people? This one left a voice mail, sounding as if she was used to people jumping and then asking if that was high enough. Sally said I had to call back.....Now.....as we need the work. I called back at 9am in business hours. Was informed that another van man had called her straight back at 7.30. ShE booked him to move and chauffer her student daughter...including packing boxes for student too. Good luck to him.the student types have definitely changed...this one couldn't make her own booking or pack a box.
Out to Collingham. Very nice lady moving in with boyfriend. Her little dog attracted a bark from monza, and the move took an hour.next. Over to Otley to collect metal.
