Wed 3 June 2015: Inchcock Today: Shredded!

Wednesday 3rd June 2015 

Woke determined to get a load more shredding done – and, get some stuff sorted and taken to Nottingham Hospice Charity shop, at least the wind seems to have dropped a bit at last.

Up around 0600hrs, WC’d, took me medications with a cuppa and straight onto the laptop to get this diary started.

Did a bit of shredding first – blimey it takes ages and makes such a mess… a bit like me really. Hehe!

This new Coreldraw x7 is taking some getting used to. The old keyboard aligning don’t work and I have to go through a docker to do it now?

Back onto the shredding for an hour or so.

Oh dear, the sun has broken through and the winds have started blowing again! Huh!

IMG_0014Had a wash and scrub up and readied the things for the hospice shop.

Set off feeding the pigeons on the corner as I proceeded on me hobble into Sherwood.

The sky looked a bit brighter, and the winds were not so bad as they have been.

As I got to the top of the first hill, a enormous tricycle passed me on the pavement – it were big and wide and I think it had an electric engine as it belted passed me – I got me IMG_0015camera out and it was gone?

Was I cracking up or what?

Steadily down the hill and up the next, crossed over the road and up to the Nottingham Hospice Charity shop. Where there was only one elderly lady on her own bless her cotton socks. We managed a little natter and I made me way back to Carrington on the opposite pavement I used to get into Sherwood.

I called into the Continental Food shop and got a small polish loaf.

IMG_0016Just over the hill and a Nottingham Pavement Cyclist took an interest in taking a photograph… Hehehe!

I pressed  and down to the Lidl store to see if they had any nice tomatoes in stock to have later with me planned bacon sandwiches.

The didn’t, they only had the bitter Spanish ones.

I did notice as I poddled around the store – they had a DVD of Expendables 3 at £4.99 so treated missen.

IMG_0017I noticed they had on sale some pulled pork in different sauces in the fridge. Hickory BBQ sauce, Bourbon BBQ sauce and Sweet apple sauce.

But they were expensive compared to those on sale at Fulton and Heron food stores, also they were smaller packs as well.

IMG_0018Got some ice lollies, relish, tin of chopped tomatoes and herbs, brown sugar and sliced potatoes as well.

Got to the checkout and when she charged me £14.99 I thought ‘Hello…’ Looked at the receipt to find she’d charged me twice for the DVD!

Being overcharged seems to happen far too often at Lidl. Along with the sneers and indifference of many of the staff I find it a shame that some other company doesn’t open a store nearby in opposition to these German fiddlers. Perhaps an Aldi, then we can surrender to the Hun fiddlers? Hehehe!

I eventually found a member of staff to tell about this, and the natural unconcerned way she just said “Yes, she’s charged you twice that’s all!” What? was a little hard to fathom. I guess this happens all the time there.


IMG_0019Staggered back to the decaying residence, WC’d and got me bacon and bread ready. I put some caramelised red onion relish on the bacon before cooking in microwave and made three sandwiches to nibble for nosh.

Got me things ready for shredding again in the morning.

Had me nosh while watching a Star Trek Next Generation film on DVD – but fell asleep part-way through, so did this diary instead.

The nosh was not bad at all.

Cooking the bacon in the microwave reveals no fat coming out of it at all, but a clear liquid that sticks to the side of the microwave dish and should not be wasted – but golly it’s tasty when you scrape it off with the crispy crust of yer Polish bread.

Bad trying to get to sleep tonight, the body said sleep but the mind said no!

Well gone midnight and still no kip… yet I feel so tired. Tsk!
