What a night of dreams!
In one I was out in the wild countryside in storms… trying to drive a tractor then a bus full of people… found myself on foot trying to cross fast moving water in a ditch… couldn’t get through it although it seemed only a few inches deep? Then I was on a piece of high land in a flood… too scared to go into the dirty fast moving water I was calling for help through a rolled up newspaper as the rain and lightning persisted? Found myself lying in a ditch minus my left leg? … I was eating my hearing aids with a drink of bleach?
That must have have been my last dream because the others I can sense their panic giving nature but no details.
Up to the WC about 0300hrs.
Laptop started, drink of spring water, passed wind and rushed back to the WC. (Close call this one)
Got me posting done to the League of Mental Men site, then started graphics for the third post in me series about the Zimmer Frame Squeaks. Took a few hours over this.
Took me medications and pondered on the tasks I have to do today.
Got some advice on covert cameras from cyber friends yesterday. I’m a bit busy with things to tend to, but will look into the ideas given me. Some good ones too.
Spit polished scrubbed and creamed myself, took a look outside and saw the rain and wind a-blowing and decided to catch the bus instead of walking today.
Caught the bus into town then another out to the Queens Medical Centre (Much praise and thanks for the senior citizens bus-pass again).
Just walking from one bus-stop to another three cyclist belted passed me on the pavement – Grrrr!
I took two photographs from the shelter and dryness of the bus through the window – through the window of the bus I was on not the a bus through the window… I’ve lost this, I’ll move on sorry.
The first one I thought typified the pedestrian of Nottingham and their habit, or even stubborn insistence on walking in the roadway and not on the pavements! Bless their cotton socks.
The second was supposed to be of the Gambling Casino but didn’t show up too well. Tsk!
The bus got me to the Queens Medical centre in no time at all… I thanked the driver James Hunt as I alighted the bus at the QMC.
As I was walking into the building I espied the poor motorists queuing for the car-park below again.
I even remembered that due to my having misplaced (Lost) me Anticoagulation Record Card (Again!) to go up to the forth floor and get another replacement.
They were very kind and didn’t get onto me at all (Much). Well, they did give me their now infamous glare that said “The silly bugger again!” I think it’s inbred in them after my forgetting and losing me card so often. I can’t blame em at all.
As I came down to the corridor afterwards (I managed the stair rather well I thought today. WordPress Warning! -Lie mode detected!)
I spotted they have a small ladies attire/clothing shop in operation on B floor and very reasonable prices too.
The change machine at the bank on the same floor had been vandalised though. Tsk!
Picked up a free Metro newspaper and onward to the haematology department took me ticket and sat in the queue reading it and filled in me form. My number was called within an hour and I got in to have me INR Warfarin level test done – and a jolly good chin-wag with the nurses who accepted me bag of nibbles with great glee.
As I left a little cheered, the rain had really started to poureth down.
Caught a bus into town and walked down into the square remembering to call at the bank to confirm me insurance had gone through. Saw the same chap as last time so got it confirmed within minutes.
Then off to the Chinese food shop nd got a bag of original seaweed and a bag of a new type I’d not seen before.
Then up to the Boots opticians here me new varifocals were ready and had yet another good chin-wag with the very comely lady indeed who looked after me and found time for a laugh at the same time bless her muchly.
Gloomy weather as I approached the slab square, but the rain was only light now.
More cylcists on the pavements as I went up King Street.
I paid a visit to the Jewellery shop window and took a photo of another of the masks in the window display to show the TFZ gals on Facebook. There was a price tag on it, but bent around so I couldn’t make out what it was.
I bit of a kerfuffle taking place at the… what do you call them, where ladies have their nails done – nail shop I suppose. The police went in and I moved on out of the way .
Down to the bus-stop and off I went back to Carrington.
Remembered to call at the GP and put request in for extra pain-killers and pain-gel. Pleased with misself there!
On the bus I thought how well I’d done to remember everything – huh! Realised I’d forgotten to take me walking stick to be repaired – to get me hearing-aid batteries – to take me library book back and to have a look in Currys at the covert cameras! (Double Tsk!).
My temporary high spirits melted away.
As I was walking from the bus to the hovel I took a picture of the Pottery Shop not far from my decaying domicile.
I moved back to pig-sty and got to the WC in time.
Made a flask of tea and got started on this diary.
