Didn't scroll down fully and just saw the pic with "Bostad" in the headline. Thought they weren't happy with what you were doing for a minute .

Re: Claim to fame :-)

I would mate but I've done my time living away for a while. It's cool how it is now travelling the east coast for a few days at a time. Maybe again in a few years but I'm loving having proper time with the Mrs again. It is tempting though....

I said to young Matt I don't seem to do conifer hedges anymore last week, ended up doing one that afternoon for a bloke next door to where we were working! Spoke too soon!

Be good to see you for a beer if you're on Lincoln any weekend you're back

Re: Claim to fame :-)

If i could earn what i do here back home then i would probs still work here if that makes sense haha Got a good crane job in 2 weeks which i am looking forward to. will try get plenty of pics and post them on here.
Gutted that im away for the APF though, take it you will be going..?
finally getting my head round srt...only been using to access the tree at the min so not a full fledge srt man yet. I do like the way i can come down for dinner and go back up with a full stomach and not feel like being sick

Re: Claim to fame :-)

I have seen the adverts on arbjobs but didn't apply seen as i am tied up with another company for time being. I would like to go in the future but was wondering what the work was like-private or utility? Is it expensive to live there? Thanks- I look forward to seeing the crane job
