Gloomy this morning.
Got some sorting done and rubbish to the bin, and put me ironing board outside with someone elses give-aways near their garage.
At this time in the morning (0414hrs).
While sorting out in the kitchen I came across a net of Marmite cheese that had fallen behind some rubbish – I’d tell you the sell-by date but as Victor Mildrew nearly used to say in his ‘One Foot in the Grave’ shows: “You wouldn’t believe it!”
Had a wash shave and changed and set off for the GP surgery.
Had me blood test and chin-wag with the Obergruppenführer… I mean Surgery Nurse.
When I left the rain was a-falling.
I’d hoped to get a walk into town in, but caught the bus instead. Thank heavens for me free pensioners bus-pass!
When I arrived in town the Nottingham Citizenry were proving their ability to cross the lights against the red lighted pedestrian signal, yet again. This them it had been on red for a good while, and a bus came around the corner and tapped his horn and one of the illegal crosses of the road actually put his two fingers up to the bus driver!
Visit Nottingham, the Queen of the Midlands the advert says. Hehe!
I had a good long walk around Nottingham taking photographs of certain areas so I could make a post “Nottingham Then and Now” with photographs from the past and today of the same things later.
Good job I didn’t walk to town, because by the time I’d finished trekking all over the City me feet and knees were killing me.
I called in the Nottingham Transport shop to ask what number bus does the route between Nottingham and Woodthorpe Park where the new flat is situated, and where it goes from in town.
After the lady consulted a map and the other Maidenoberführerin… I mean assistants, she suggested I go to Broad Marsh (Which I trudged through earlier on me photo-hunt) and ask there.
Peeved a little, I called in the Nottingham information Centre under the Council House and asked them – within 5 minutes they had given me the location, the number and a map.
I staggered (Well the knees were really bad, I knew summat was in the wind weather-wise) up to the bus stop and caught the bus back to the hovel.
Called in the Co-op and got some of their bread-thins to have with me later re-planned nosh tonight.
I was going to have the last of me BBQ Chicken with some mashed spuds – but when I got back to the flea-pit, put the kettle on, got the chicken out of the fridge – it was passed it’s sell-by date – I know that feeling Haha!
Don’t know where the desserts came from…
I wasn’t up to doing any more sorting so updated this diary… and ate two mini-swiss rolls.
Ate me nosh then did some Facebooking.
Despite me feeling tires I had a heck of job getting to sleep – Tsk!
