I tried the porcelain hoping for a movement without any luck
Went down and put kettle on and popped out into the gloomy (Again) morning to take me daily piccy of the sky.
I made a flask of tea and a pot of porridge and took it with me to the laptop and started it up.
Minutes later a call to the porcelain proved to be a success despite having eaten the porridge.
I pondered on how me ailments felt this morning up to now:
No dizzies yet. The ulcer was as good as gold, the reflux valve not sticking, Arthur Itis and Anne Gyna not bad at all but the torn muscle was still painful, but today only when I bent or lifted anything heavy.
A better start medically speaking I thought – then remembered the other day starting like this… Mmm!
Decided to risk a little hobble later, perhaps to town then get a bus to Morrisons to treat myself to some Marmite Crisps? – who knows, the world is my oyster… Do you like me header for this page folks – Marmite Mad I am.
They make more things than you’d imagine.
Although I have me doubts about the toothpaste? (See header)
Got myself readied and spick and span and set off with me bus-pass, umbrella, medications and bird seed for a walk into town – still undecided where to go yet.
The sky looked bright, but not much sun was getting through.
I poddled on my walk into Nottingham City Centre.
I foolishly rang Sister Jane and Pete en route – the traffic increased as soon as we were connected and the whole conversation was a farce – I couldn’t hear Pete, Pete couldn’t hear me.
I carried on down the hill into the City and found it busier that I expected.
I went to try and catch the bus out to Netherfield and the Morrisons store in search of any Marmite infested products they may have on sale.
I decided to not bother with Morrisons today, and walked over the road into the Victoria Centre and through to the other end to visit the Tesco Metro on me mission for Marmite instead.
I called in the DVD shop en route and had a gander but nothing appealed at all.
As I plodded on I noticed a store window that was displaying children’s stuff with models without heads? What with seeing the jeans without torsos yesterday I wondered why these displays had grown in popularity with the the retailers?
Mind you, I liked the styles of the togs on sale.
I got into Tesco and had a good hunt around – found some Marmite Crisps and Salt & Vinegar baked biscuits and other bits and spent a fortune £17!
I stood for a while and recovered in moments this time, so that was good.
Out into the fresh air and I fed the pigeons near the demolition of the old Radio BBC building.
So many of the pigeons have damaged legs and claws. That’s because of the wires and electrified obstacles they have all over the buildings in an effort to stop them from landing on or roosting on their buildings and unthinkingly crapping all over the concrete I think.
The demolition people seem to be getting a move on with the buildings destruction now.
I wondered what plans they might have for the site in the future?
Surely we do not need more shops or student accommodation?
If they put as much effort into housing ordinary people as they do to housing students the problems would… mind you I suppose with the decline of industry in Nottingham, Education is bringing in the money instead?
I don’t know.
I wondered down into town again and my keen observationalistic nature noted the Nottingham citizenry crossing the road against the traffic lights continues unabated.
I crossed the road and removed myself form the firing line.
Original that I thought.
I got the bus back to Carrington enoying another dizzy as I got off the bus. Sat on a bench for a few minutes and was soon alright again, then continued back to the flea-pit.
Put me things away, made a meal of Beef slice and cheesey potatoes, followed by a bag of Marmite crisps then a lolly.
I fell asleep, waking up at gone midnight… Missed me evening medicines dose. Tsk!
