Thursday 27th November 2014
Stirred into life hastily around 0500hrs – later than normal, but than I did not nod-off last night until 1230hrs gone.
Little Inchy tended to, only the slightest specks of blood.
Made cuppa and took medications.
Searched for hearing aids for a while before I found them next to the kettle?
Beats me as well that does.
Got the stuff ready for the Nottingham Hospice Charity shop, made sure I’d got the banks letter, bus-pass and set off on me walk to Sherwood.
I took another photo as I walked into Sherwood, still dark and danke.
I caught a bus into town and limped into the City Centre and called at the Bank.
The Nottinghan Tourist shop had a Monopoly with a Nottingham theme in the window. I took a picture of it – I wonder if the players in this Monopoly lose their jobs, go shoplifting, mugging, ride cycles on pavements, attack elderly pedestrians on mobility scooters, root through other peoples bins, get sizzled each day, are members of Gamblers Anonymous, fiddle their benefits, carry guns and knives, use drugs of all sorts, burglarise their locality, smoke Lithuanian cigarettes and have to take a Big Issue Sellers card instead of Community chest card?
Had a wander around the City Centre taking photo’s of the rides at the Winter Wonderland Fayre.
The horses ride only had two people on it.
The Ice Skating Rink was not open yet.
I took a couple of shots of food stalls, they were doing a little better trade with the Nottingham folk – it still amazes me how a family say 3 kids and hubby and wife can afford to eat at these places – I can’t. (♫Jealousy… was all over my jjjealousy… ♫)
I could not resist taking a photo of the stall selling the ladies headwear and scarves again. I love these accessories for the ladies, but no one can tell me what they are called… apart from hats of course.
I hobbled up into the Victoria centre and had a limp though the market and at a ladies accessory shop I took a photo of part of the display to post on the Troll Free Zone site to tickle the lady TFZers fancy.
Then into Tesco and that’s where I spend far too much bearing in mind I cannot get at me money until the card comes through. (Tsk twit!)
My guilty purchases’?: Fresh Cream Horns, Cheesey seaweed, Lemon and Lime marshmallows and some Sapoka. Ah well!
Caught the bus back to Carrington and called in the Co-op to get some ice lollies.
Got in the Cream horns didn’t last five minutes before I’d demolished them.
Made a cuppa and laptop working okay now so did some graphics and facebooking.
Took medications at 1700hrs.
Treated little ‘Inchy’ – no blood, looking good.
I made some Sapoka sandwiches and instant potato with cheese to have with a drop of BBQ sauce and pickled beetroot.
Another riveting day comes to a close…
