Wednesday 29th April 2015
Woke at 0530hrs.
Took me morning medications then made a flask of tea then took me BP thingy tests:
The rain was falling and it looked a bit drab outside – are we in for some snow later I wondered?
Should I get out and get some food in today while it’s not as bad as it might be and is in some areas of the country?
So glad that if it does come, it’s forecast for tomorrow to start here in Nottingham, local shops aren’t too far away.
Regarding the bleeding Inch, the GUM clinic is a devil to get to. I think I’ll carry on using the cream I have in the hope that is clears it up so I don’t have to risk it going out in this weather – but the lesion seems larger than last time. Huh, Tsk and bother!
The rain had stopped and the beautiful clouds were milling about in the high winds just before I left to catch the bus into town – with the hope of getting some advice from the EE shop about the new mobile phone worra got from em yesterday.
Minutes later the sky was bright once again?
The only constant this morning was the wind.
At the bus-stop managed to drop me bus-pass – you wouldn’t believe the problems I had trying to retrieve it from the floor – even I had to laugh.
A police car with blues and twos on turned into the pedestrian area just before I did – I’m glad to say.
There was a Street Musician playing a tiny banjo and I felt a bit sorry for him so dropped a bit in his hat.
I called in the EE shop and asked a chap about locking the phone, and how to download pictures to the laptop – explaining that the other chap yesterday told me there was a lead in the box – there wasn’t. This chap explained it is part of the battery connector that has a plug both ends. I thanked him. Later when I got home I found this to be untrue, the lead is permanently fixed at the charger with no facility to remove it – Huh!
I walked and caught a bus into Arnold.
Straight to the Fultons shop and had a poddle about. They had some chilled lamb shanks in gravy that were microwaveable at only £2.99 for a box of two. Gonna have one of them tonight methinks.
As I left the shop I narrowly missed being Whoopsidangleplopped by a Pavement Cyclist!
Passing the Arnold Police Station I wondered if it was still operational. Couldn’t see any vehicles anywhere, no lights or bodies in sight anywhere at all.
Two people seemed unscared enough to have left their vehicles outside too – maybe the owners are part of the local Mafia?
Clever how I managed to miss of the crashed cars in the photo – Tsk!
Still bright but breezy weather.
Dropped off at the Co-op store in Carrington to get some bread-thins. I noticed they have put up the price of Warburton Thins 6’s from £1 to £1.39 now… shame!
They did have some Co-op label ones in eights that were smaller at £1 so I got a pack to try em out tonight.
The twitchel (Definition: A slang word particular to the people of Nottingham meaning a path/alleyway/cut-through in a residential area) was free of anti-social elements so I cut through and back to the hovel, dropping a few seeds for Fatima and Fred.
…. I’m back, sorry about that I got the cramps with me arthritis and a dizzy spell all at the same time then. Botherski! Took me medications while I waited fer me fingers to return to near normal – nearly dropped me tablets too. Hehe!
Got me nosh prepared.
Lamb shank in gravy, potatoes, garden peas, & Co-op Bread Thins.
Followed by two iced lollies.
Tinned New Potatoes (Iceland): 8/10
Petit Pois (Farmfoods): 8/10
Bread Thins (Co-op): 4/10
Iced Lollies –
Blackcurrant / Ice-cream: (Fultons): 9/10
Strawberry / Ice-cream: (Tesco): 5/10
Took me evening medications and applied me creams and lotions.
Did some Facebooking and Blogging and created the header for today’s Diary.
Soon felt tired, but could I nod off when I wanted to?
