Sprang awake at 0250hrs.
Angina still bothersome too.
Again I could remember wanting to remember a dream but could not remember much – only corridors and passages with me being lost with my shopping bags. I’m sure there was much more to the nightmare but… no real memory?
Made a cuppa and started laptop.
No internet connection again, so I restarted the laptop… got message 32Fat is unstable – checking. Or something like that, went through and opened alright with internet connection back on?
Did some blogging and Facebooking.
Another cuppa and took me medications.
Got myself ready to go out with the intention of going to Derby and feeding the dicky-birds…
Putting me glasses (Spectacles) on and the left lense fell out! It took me an hour to find it. Kept it safe in glasses box with the damaged frame – then spent another hour looking for me old glasses to wear on me journey.
So, rearranged me plans for the day and set off on me walk into town… that turned into a bus ride into town on account of the wet rain like.
Another interesting bus ride it was too.
The single decker bus was crammed with passengers like sardines in a can. There was hardly room to move let alone any seats. And when the poor devils who wanted to get off at stops the poor devils who were stood hanging on for life to the bars had to shuffle off and back on the bus to allow them to get off!
I laughed on about the third time this happened and a woman asked me “If I thought it was funny?” I replied “Well it’s certainly an interesting ride isn’t it?” She was not impressed and grumpft at me.
When I got off the bus in town and walked down towards the City centre, the view demanded a photo from me.
Most suitable I thought for how I felt at that moment… Sparse, barren, dark, dank, wet and depressed. Tsk!
I pressed on and down into the slab square, where the lights on the Winter-Wonderland Festival showed up brightly in the dark wet weather.
It would have been about 1100hrs I imagine then, but still the light of day did not appear – the gloom won in more than one way to me.
I walked up Friar Lane to the Boots Opticians shop and explained my problem to the lady there.
She took the glasses off of me and said she’s be a few minutes, take a seat. I preferred to stand in case me knees froze up and took a look through the frames on display on the walls.
A few minutes later she returned and explained: As she was taking the spectacles out of the case – one of the nose supports dropped off! Have you any shopping to do?
I’m got to go to the bank?
See you later then.
As I left the shop and wandered down towards the bank I pondered, what next?
In two days I’ve broken a tooth, cut me tongue, the Angina is bad, me dizzy-spells are back, lost me glasses lense and now had to get a new nose thingy replacement?
The dentists next month, my slippers have split, my picker has broken…
As I said before, Hey-ho!.
So I sorted things at the bank and returned to the opticians. Collected me repaired spec’s and made an appointment to 1100hrs in the morning to have me eyes tested.
I was getting more depressed although I couldn’t figure out why as the day went on.
I poddled up into Victoria Centre to the cheapo shop and got another 4 for a pound Lion Bars – fatal again for me wallet that. Because the shop was opposite the HMV shop and I veered across to foolishly look at the DVDs on offer. They had an interesting looking film with Stallone and Schwarzenegger called ‘Escape Plan’ It was in the 2 for a pound display so I got another ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ with Ben Stiller.
Then I went into Tesco to get some Cream Horns that I’m addicted to… but they didn’t have any…. Sob! Boo!. I asked an assistant and he went to have a look if they had any in stock and came back with a negative answer. But it was nice of someone to try innit?
I should have just left… well I did… but not until I purchased two different cream cakes to take with me – No Willpower at all me! Tsk, huh and blabberpinkles!
Ashamed of spending too much again, I made my way to the bus-stop and dropped off on Hucknall Road.
Walked up the hill and turned right into my road and it hit me: (Pleasantly) There were no apprentice yobs in view! Perhaps the rain had put them off?
Got in, made a cuppa and updated this Diary.
Tried to watch a DVD… gave up when I kept falling asleep.
Must remember the opticians appointment in the morning!

I’ve become the optician at the office. Staff bring their glasses frames, lenses and screws to me in various states disarray, and ask me to repair them. Just happens that since I work on the computers at the office, I have tiny screw drivers and various pliers that work well on glasses. It’s all fun and excitement. One minute I might be programming web pages, the next minute fixing someones glasses, and then get called on to unclog a toilet (speaking of dark, dank and wet).
A man of many talents and much utilised then.
That’s a good thing I think.
I’m back at the opticians later today for eye testing, I’ll tell em if they have any problems I know a chap who can help… only joking… mind you…
Aww, you’re falling apart today, my friend! 🙁 You need a gentleman’s gentleman to wait on you so you can stay in from the rain and have him run all those errands for you while you mend. Then take a plane over here to Florida and let me take you to the beach so you can warm up.
Ah… what a kind and wonderful thought Rachel…haaa.
Just got back from the opticians gal.
Got to wait a week for the new goggles… but of course that’s Christmas so they do not know when they will be ready but will send me a letter.
no INR tests next week ’cause of the holidays.
Dentists in January… I know I need at least me two bottom front teeth that have broken and are now going turning black replacing with dentures I suspect.
Then in February they want to have a peep into me mechanical ticker valve.
Ah well I love having someone to natter to thanks gal.
🙁 That stinks! You need a holiday here, I tell ya! And maybe our nice sunshiney vitamin C would heal you of all your maladies. 😀
I fang you.
