Inchcock Today: Sunday 9th November 2014

Just how is Britain’s miniature answer to Ebola doing today?

0701Nervous, uncertain, cold and weary!

Sunday 9th November 2014

Bad night for waking up every few minutes it seemed – and fretting over something different every time.

Gave up and got up at 0250hrs.

0702Laptop took ages to start.

Made a cuppa and returned to it – Internet freezing again. Restarted twice. All three active blue lights on all the time now.

Third loading it is working… reluctantly.

0703I’m sneezing like a good un this morning.

Got loads of graphics done for the TFZers.

Coreldraw is not playing up now? Apart from the not letting me save of course. But still, in confuses me why.

Very cold this morning now.

0704Morrison’s order came, no substitutions.

I’m going to get myself beautified, sanitised and prettied-up and take the camera for a walk into Nottingham. Oh, and of course well wrapped up – me that is not the camera!

I attended the Remembrance service at St John’s, and came away slightly 0705thoughtful but depressed as usual.

Being a Sunday (See how quick I was there?), not much traffic on Mansfield Road as I set off on walk into the City Centre.

As I arrived there, still not much traffic, but plenty of Nottinghomian’s lurking alarmingly about, as well as cyclist, mobility scooters, street performers and big Issue sellers as well.

I poddled through town to the South end and went in Sainsbury’s to get some bread for the birds.

0706I went down to the Nottingham canal and as I was feeding them I realised or rather remembered that it was now banned and I risked an on the spot fine of £65!

So I threw in the rest of the bread quickly… during which one of the animals shat down me left trouser leg!

I was not feeling too good, a bit dizzy and lifeless so I made towards the City Centre to catch the bus home.

On the way I nipped into the pound shop and got another bag of bird seed – that I will have to remember to use in Derby not Nottingham.

0707Walked through town, taking a picture of buildings and nice sky.

Hobbling now, I struggled to the bus-stop. When it arrived and I got on it, I took a picky of me leg and the bird poop!

 Back at the Steptoe & Son hovel, WC, laptop started and made a cuppa.

Microwaved potatoes tonight, with some BBQ sausages methinks.

Do you know, I can’t figure out why I feel so low… Tsk!

Inchcock Today: Frid/Sat 7-8th November 2014

How is Inchcock Today? – Nervous, worried and confused!

0502Friday 7th November 2014

I woke up regular as clockwork every 30 minutes or so all throughout the night.

I felt more tired when I eventually got up at 0330hrs than I was when I went to bed. Tsk!

0504Noticed message on phone from Brother in law Pete asking what time I would be at their place today. It rally is so sad that I’d forgotten I was going?

Texted back asking if 1200hrs is okay. I kept mobile in me pocket so I might not miss any reply.

Took bags out to the bins and moved 0503them into the pathway ready for collection.

No frost this morning, just dank and drizzly.

Cuppa tea, medications and on laptop at 0400hrs.

Took some photo’s when I got there, and we had a natter of sorts.

Caught bus back to town then another to Carrington.

Not feeling too well at the moment.


Saturday 8th November 2014

Oh dear me – came down and found I’d left me freezer door wide open all night – Huh!

Five black bags of fodder now in the dustbin. So I’ll have to go out and get some replacements later.

Amazing, Coreldraw is letting me open without going through the recent clicking of warnings it indicated. Still not letting me close it properly but still.

I got tons of graphics done while I could.

Cyber-friend Lynton messaged me, I really appreciate this, but sometimes I am embarrassed and ashamed with how I exist. And find communicating any other way than the internet hard.

The internet Google Chrome kept closing on its own accord. Maybe this is the end. I’ll find out when I get back from shopping.

I decided to get out and buy some fodder from the freezer shops. Might go to Bulwell where there is three to pick from for the best value.

Caught the bus on Hucknall Road

The rain was heavy throughout the journey.

Got to Bulwell and called in Iceland. They only had the tasteless lollies in so got one box. Along with some microwave baking potatoes.

Then to Fultons. Got some flavoured potatoe halves.

Then to Heron got some different potatoe halves there.

Caught the bus back to the flea-pit.


Then I updated this then tried to work on Chrome to post it. It loaded very very slowly.

Then opened the Inchcock wordpress site, again very slow loading.

It let me post this anyway. (Slowly)

So I tried to do another one and see if it stayed hospitable.

Not bad, slow but working anyway. Bit like me really. Hehe!
