Did me tests:
Sys 156 Dia 88 Pulse 82 Temp 35.1
Made a nice strong cuppa and poddled around and got the washing things ready and polished missen up a bit. Bit of rush.
Got me INR record card in me pocket in readiness fer me visit fer me tests after doing the laundry. And – it only took me around 15 minutes to find it. Tsk!
Took another photo of the kids street art before it rained and it dissolved.
It looked nice today, but the wind was cold and the sun not hot.
I had a contemplative bit of a mood as I stood there…
A couple of pigeons came down to greet me and have their late breakfast of meal-worms and mixed sunseeds.
There’s something about pigeons that I admire… perhaps because most fold consider them as flying vermin and their mere survival instincts amaze me?
The sky was beautiful and it was light – but it was so cold and windy with it, it was misleading.
After loading the machined I realised I’d forgotten to take the soap powder with me.
Normally this would not have bothered me too much – but this morning I was getting a little irritated with myself about me faux pas.
Then as I sat there reading me book BJ returned and we had a little natter and laugh.
BJ ran me back to the flea-pit – as as I got out of the car BJ heard a clunk and asked me what it was, I’d not heard it (Nothing unusual in that even with me hearing-aids in) It turned out it was me camera falling out of me pocket between the seat and the door. Good job BJ heard it and told me! That would have put me on a mega-low if I lost that.
I took the washing up and then realised I had not got me mobile phone – an hour searching revealed nothing in the house. Then I remembered the camera dropping out of me pocket in BJs car as got out of it – a feeling of extreme woe and stupidity came over me. I could not ring BJ on me spare as the number for him was in the old one I’d lost!
I decided to go into the EE shop where I got the sim card from and ask for advice as I go through town on me way to the hospital.
It must have been blown down by the high winds presumably.
Onward to catch the bus and into the City Centre – where I plodded into Clumber Street and entered the EE shop to ask for advice about me lost phone.
I was passed on to another assistant ‘Samuel’ who although a little distracted by other at times – was patient outwardly with me and it took an hour or more for him to sort it for me. He offered me the old sim keeping the same number and a free phone for the same monthly cost. A Nokia Lumia. He got it going and explained a few things about its working to me. Got the internet on this one. Confused by it all I agreed and he sorted me out.
I called into the Holland & Barret shop to see their prices for the St Johns Wort and purchased a pack I thought was cheaper than me local chemist. Later when I compared the two – it transpired these H&B ones were smaller. Huh!
The place was very busy, being so late in the day – a time I usually avoid going if I can – but my cock-up in forgetting to go yesterday meant I had cope with it – my own fault.
I had a read of me Spike Milligan book while waiting for me number to be called, but could not concentrate in it properly for fear of getting into it and missing me number.
An hour or so later I was called in and tended to. Gave the nurses their nibbles bag and departed to catch a bus into Nottingham.
Walked down and caught the bus back to Carrington.
I’m afraid the new phone will take some getting used to – I thought it best if I ever get to see sister Jane again I’ll take it and asked Pete to set it up for me and offer some guidance for me.
Funny, I can remember how to bone bacon that I learnt in 1963 – but getting around these new fandangled phones…?
Roast baby potatoes, Krakowska meat, cooked beetroot. garden peas, rocket and the boiled egg cob – followed by two blackcurrant ice cream lollies.
Fell into a deep sleep for several hours.
Awoke and made a cuppa then started this Diary like.
Took me medications.
Feeling a bit down with me fau-pars like.
