I defy anybody to read this entire entry!

I decided that I would do a sort of photoblog of my work day, taking a photo every hour on the hour. A great idea but the results are a bit boring lol

Oh well, here goes

Introducing your driver for today it's Driving Toadee

(bored yet?)

this section of the A61 passes through the Yorkshire forest which is the real area frequented by Robin Hood.

Soon after I deliver to Cadbury's (smelt of liquorish today) and by 8am I am approaching Sheffield centre

Arriving at Gunstone Bakeries (they do the Marks and Spencers bread and stuff) I find myself waiting for the lift at 9am

11am finds me thundering up the M1 and taking shaky pictures

(strange that I can't use my mobile whilst driving but the law hasn't told me not to take pictures lol)

shortly after 11 I decide that I am feeling a bit tired and in need of stimulation so I pull into a service area and phone a friend. That does the trick, I am revitalised and my friend has had a momentary relief from a power cut.


By 12 I am back at the depot reloading for the second part of the day's run

(what, you're still here?)

I visit a meat packing plant in Bradford and am honoured to be allowed over the threshold (they are very strict due to hygeine regulations and then it's up the M606 (at 3pm) to the chicken packers (very smelly)

Tim, a day in your life was wonderful to visit. I loved the one of you in the hair net..Of course I realize that health issues is of importance. That was a great commentary of your day. Hugs to you

Chloe said...

So sexy in the hygienic hairnet! Why am I addicted to reading your blogs???

I suppose to keep from writing in my own...

KB said...

I don;t believe it. A whole day without nodding off under a tree. What has happened to you my friend?

Toadee said...

No-one has ever liked me in big photos before, my heart melteth.

Chloe, I really think you should write a little hehe. I noticed that the men particularly try to wear their haitnets in a cool or sexy way. Doesn't really work lol

hey, why don't you do a photo blog

Karen, as I said earlier, I haven't mentioned what I do when the lights go down but you know me, a day isn't complete without a bit of dreaming under the tree.
