A Friday in the life of..........

Hey up. Welcome all to Friday's edition of Life at Wards. Have we all got exciting weekend plans? I haven't, weather permitting I shall travel to Scarborough to visit Mr N and his newborn child. Gifts shall be given and pictures taken to show my mum. Saturday night shall be dedicated exclusively to Hendrick's Gin. If you haven't tried it, get busy! A twist on the everyday Life at Ward's blog today, we are going to take a look at the typical daily life of a Wardscatering engineer. Mr F is on station, so here we go. I appologise in advance for any strange things he does. My day starts with a large bowl of weetabix. Usually 2 bars with milk, this morning I had 3. Its going to be a busy day. First call of the day was to a glasswasher, the good thing abouit my job is the amount of time I get to sit in my nice warm van travelling around York's outer ring road. I am a big fan of fishing and as it's 'Bivvy Friday' I get plenty of time to stake out potential places to set up my bivvy & rod and do some poaching. Having supplied and fitted a replacement part for the customers detergent pump, I moved on to my next call which was to a hot water boiler. Calls to hot water boilers are always pretty high on my agenda, I generally get to fill my flask up when i'm putting them on test. En route to the call I spotted a Heron, I hate heron's as they steal my fish. I'm the only one who should be allowed to fish. Water boiler fixed with a replacement thermostat, i'm really cooking with gas today. It's time to get into the office to catch up on some paperwork and see who I can wind up in the office! Getting to the office, I find out there is no tea bags. This will be a flying visit. If a building has no tea bags it's not worthy of my presense. I end up spending some time in my workshop / lazy room. Having put a customers boiler on test I recline and take a well earned 40 winks. No one can catch me as I have a lock on the door. My fellow engineer Mr S wakes me up some 20 minutes into my sleep, having decided against putting him to sleep with my spanner, I let him in and we talk over a problem he has with a job. I am only too happy to help. After all working at Wardscatering is a team sport. After a few minutes following up some queries from customers it is now nearly time to go on my Friday afternoon calls. Friday afternoon calls are code for take my time and then get home for 4pm. I love them, just don't tell Mr A the boss! Enjoy your weekend, I'll pass you back to Mr C. Thanks Mr F for that insight. Life as a Wardscatering engineer is obviously a fun filled adventurous life. Next week we shall do a day in the life of Mr G, that should be interesting. TTFN
