Monday 6th April 2015
Didn’t get to sleep until around 0400hrs. Slept through until 0830hrs. Took medications and applied gels and lotions.
Started prep for this diary – checked emails, Facebook between visitations to the porcelain.
Spit and polished myself changed and got ready to wait for BJ’s arrival for out trip to Papplewick Pumping Station.
Looking forward to the trip out and seeing Young David and BJ again.
BJ arrived with David in the car and we were off to Papplewick Pumping Station.
The sun was out today, but of course muggins here had to keep the sun off me head and skin so everyone there kept giving me odd looks – most folk in tee-shirts or summer wear, me wrapped up like Scott of the North. Tsk!
Today we walked around happily for a while chin-wagging to some of the volunteers on site.
They had some new engines working today.
Note they were in shirtsleeves – looking at me as I took the photo here on the left – no doubt wondering why this old chap had his hat and a big coat on?
Eventually I chanced taking me hat off and kept in the shade as much as possible.
The steam engine chap had his daughter and a large dog with him today on his tractor.
I took the shot from a distance using the zoom facility.
The animal didn’t look too friendly to me like.
We walked around the circumference of the lake.
With so many people around today, the Carp in the lake were keeping out of view and deep within the depths.
David and I walked to the rear where there were just two vintage cars there today.
This Morris 10 I think car stole me heart.
David wanted to go on the trip to the reservoir but I was in no state to go with him and he was little sad about that bless him.
We met BJ as we walked around and as we were talking to him, the dizzies started and I felt unwell with them.
I put me hat back on then fell asleep after taking this photo and woke feeling not too good but better than I was – if you know what I mean?
BJ rang me to see where I was, and we all met up and nattered with staff at the gatehouse before departing – me feeling a lot better now. Worried about losing memory of had happened for a while though.
Must make note of this for the doctor tomorrow.
BJ ran us home and I thanked him and David seemed happy as I got out of the car and waved them goodbye as they drove off.
I think I enjoyed this nosh, cause afterwards I nodded off… for 11 hours! When I woke up and put the light on I found the dirty dish bereft of food and well wiped.
