Awake at 0410hrs, chest pains rampant.
Down at 0505hrs. Laptop went through same procedure as yesterday; When it was supposed to have been loaded fully, a blank white screen. I cried a bit. Then ran the mouse over the screen, and as I did, the stuff came back on as I ran it over where the icons should be?
I fear I’m going to lose everything soon.
I must remember to put the camera batteries on charge.
Made a cuppa and took medications.
I wrote down some notes for an idea I had for a humorous post – but was not so sure it would work. I’ll take another gander after I get back from the launderette this morning.
Did me ablutions, and set off with me bag of washing. (With me knees twinging rather persistently).
Bought a very interesting ‘Nottingham Bygones’ paper to read on the way. There was many articles worthy of a good read in it.
The big Polish gal was on duty at the launderette, I can’t pronounce her name, so I’ve Christened her Bertha.
Big John arrived to do his laundry. Had a good natter about his holiday in Cornwall.
I departed with me now clean laundry back to the flea-pit.
Laptop started, kettle on, up and put the togs away, WC again, came down and made a cuppa, took me midday medications… then the laptop had loaded itself at last.
Had a look at the notes wot I made earlier about a post idea, and decided to work on it, then create some graphics to support it.

WC visits more regular overnight, and have continued this morning.
Inch bleeding again. Tended to, sorry I forgot to mention this to Dr Vindla yesterday now.
Left ear-hole blocked, I must have slept a bit on it. Dropped some olive oil in both lug-holes as usual and pain-gel applied to knees and hands.
Laptop on, and made cuppa and porridge with added honey. (By gum I live well!) Took me morning medications.
Updated this diary.
Received my Anticoagulation Therapy Record dosage from the hospital.
Apparently my target is NRI 3.5 but I’ve never got that yet. I’m on 5.0 this time. So that explains why I’ve been feeling so cold lately? Or does it? I think the higher the IHR is, the thinner the blood is.
Better try not to cut myself! I might bleed to death, but at least I shouldn’t get a blood clot taking me out. Hehehe, you’ve got to laugh yer know.
I must get me things ready to take to the Nottingham Hospice Charity shop later. I’ll do it now; back in a bit…
I’m back… oh dear, WC beckons, I’m off again…
Must get myself beautified for me walk, and hope it isn’t too painful today.
0840hrs: Back later folks…
Walked into Sherwood and dropped me stuff off at the Nottingham Hospice Charity Shop. I asked the lay there if she knew where I could get a “Reacher/picker” from. She told me to try the Mobility Scooter shop about half a mile up the road. So I did.
As I approached the shop, I was nervous in case any of the deadly mobility scooter drivers appeared out of nowhere… as they do tend to do to me yer know.
Walked back into Sherwood and caught a bus to town.
Limped to the second hand music shop to see if he had managed to get me Acker Bilk’s ‘Gotta see mama tonight’, but he hadn’t.
Walked down through the arcade and went into the Library Contact point and asked them if they knew where I could get details of the Meals at home service. A very nice lady called them for me, and handed me the phone. They are going to send me details through the post.
I saw two people of the many people sat around the square, were not using a mobile or ipod thingamajig.
Took a picture of the Council house.
Hobbled up and through Victoria, and came out the other end and went into PC World/Curry’s to have a look at their portable DVD players, but they have stopped selling them?
Took an extra painkiller with me midday medications, cause the left knee had started to get worse again.
Staggered to the bus stop and caught bus back to Carrington.
Called in the local Co-op to get some of their special prices Warburton Thins, but the queue was so long, I decided not to bother.
I painfully limped the last leg of the journey home.
Got in, and rushed to the WC. (Just in time) Unfortunately in the rush, I banged me knee on the side of the bath… I believe I said something like; “Well fancy that!”
It’s still stinging now. (Tsk!)
Got the laptop going and updated this tosh.
Aye up… WC.
Started work on graphics for the posts.
