Managed some kip last night.
I realised I’d missed last nights medications. I saw the pot there at the side of me, still full – huh!
WC’d, things getting a little loose again. The rumbling and grumbling was persisting just when I thought they were abating too.
The knees were well bad this morning, and when I put in me hearing-aids heard them cracking away like crisps being crushed when I moved.
Even Anne Gyna was painful. However the back passage-piles were okay with no bleeding. The ulcer was as good as gold. The front teggies gave only a bit of pain (Must get to the dentist), then again I’m not eating at the moment.
Laptop on, Coreldraw9 crashed immediately when I chose the import option. Rebooted tried again and gave up.
Tried to do the work on Serif Draw x6, but didn’t know how to import to get the original size of graphics. I have to drag-t0-size on import?
Gave up again and got a good wash and brush up and got the things ready for the launderette, the gals nibbles, soap tablets, softener, drier balls and a choc bar for myself to nibble.
Set off to the launderette in the high gusty winds, fed some pigeons clandestinely en-route.
Well, all the machines were in use bar one – the one that folk don’t like to use because it doesn’t spin fast and it takes more money in the drier. As I resigned meself to another expensive day I spotted Grizelda at the back and that cheered me up somewhat.
She smiled at me and waved and parts of my anatomy were girded into movements unknown in months.
I realise that nothing could come of these fantasies wot I have over her – she is about a foot taller than I, years younger and yet still I yearn… Will I ever learn?
Got the machine going and Big John came in laughing because four of the machines had his washing in them – then he started flirting with Grizelda, who has taken a fancy to him – Huh cobblers and Tsk! It didn’t bother me at all, I wasn’t jealous, oh no…
Grizelda came towards me and my heart pounded, despite being part metal and plastic… she smiled and said: “Would you like tea?” in her wonderful deep voiced yet delicate Polish accent. I think I mumbled ‘Yes please…’
I then started fretting, thinking I might have left the tap running in the bathroom. Unable to get the feeling out of me mind I walked back to the dump to check it out. Of course the taps were not running… but I had left the laptop on, so I closed it down.
An interesting article:
‘This is the astonishing moment a group of frustrated Nottingham tram passengers picked up and moved a Mini off the road after its driver blocked two trams when she parked across the tracks.
The fed-up bystanders shifted the car after the trams were delayed for 15 minutes. Incredibly the female driver had left her motor illegally parked on double yellow lines in Nottingham at 11.1oam yesterday.
The red-faced driver eventually returned from a nearby coffee shop to find her car moved and a penalty ticket waiting from a Nottingham Community Protection Officer.
Adding to her growing misery, the driver was then serenaded by ironic whoops and cheers from the swelling crowds as she quickly performed an illegal U-turn and drove off.
When we arrived I was surprised at the queues for the petrol station – are we due price rise or something?
Please advise me if you should know owt like?
Big John came with me to the microwaves in store and I carefully selected the most appurtenant and suitable model for my particular requirements. (The cheapest). We split to do our shopping, I didn’t get much: Microwave, Feasters beefburgers (Very tasty), bleach, Bread thins and a pack of mini Swiss rolls.
BJ ran me back to the flea-pit, I thanked him and he shot off.
I put me washing away and then the shopping.
Made a cuppa, laptop on and no internet connection – I realised I’d turned off the hub earlier, so went down and turned it back on. Had a dizzy spell coming back up the stairs… not a back un, only lasted for a few seconds and then dissipated. I think it might be due to me low Warfarin INR level? It don’t help when I miss me doses – what a plonker!
Updated this diary to here, then did a bit of work on another post entitled (As of now anyway) ‘Things nobody says to me any more’.
Used up three and a bit hours there no problem. Tsk!
Many WC visits later I made a cuppa ready to take me evening medications and found the INR report and dosage record had been delivered.
Level up to 2.4, so going the right way at last – they had made another appointment for this Thursday. It’s all go innit?
No rest fer the wicked. (If that’s true, how come the politicians haven’t all collapsed? – Just a thought like.)
