0415hrs: Stirred to like (Of sorts) The fridge freezer seems to have settled for a morning chorus of ‘Clunk, Whir… bang shudder whine chatagrurgle, Hoooiii clunk shudder this morning.
Bit of a dream still lingered:
In an old dilapidated building with dust and sunshine coming through the broken windows… chasing someone through the corridors that turned into passageways on a boat? Someone then chasing me… that’s all I can recall?
WC’d, only a bit of bleeding from ‘Little Inchy’. Still felt well tired but in good spirits this morning.
Laptop on to finish and post yesterdays diary – made a cuppa and took me medications.
When I got up to make another cuppa when the first went cold, I glanced out of the window to see a bloke who was walking his three little dogs on the green opposite the flats, and all three were taking a dump at the same time! Original photograph time I thought… but by the time I’d got me card out of the laptop and put it in the camera they had all finished their ablutions. Hehehe!
Incidentally, me fingers are a lot less bothered with Arthur Itis this morning?
I wondered if the Magnesium tablet I took last night wiv me evening medications might have helped? The cramps that I took them for in the first place started to come on a bit last night, but nowhere near as bad as they have been, surely one tablet can’t have been that effective? I’m puzzled.
I put the batteries for the camera on charge, charged the mobile phone, then got yet another ‘Wrong Call’ on the land-line. It sounded like the regular chappy who calls every night and can’t understand what he’s saying but he persists – I might have to get rid of the land-line if this continues. He’s calling ever night between 1700 to 19oohrs and now starting it at 0600hrs? Foreign accent, muffled voice, just can’t make out what he’s saying?
I put the Betamethasone Corticosteroid cream in the bathroom in case needed again.
Facebooked and graphicalisationed for a few hours.
Got the overfull washing bag, capsules and freshener ready, camera in bag and went down to see if I could have any luck with getting a washing machine free to use – I couldn’t. Both in use, and one indicating 35 minutes left the other 33 min’s – seems someone has used two machines – greedy little monkeys.
Back up to the flat and updated this diary while waiting to go down again and hope someone else doesn’t beat me to it again, and get me laundry done. If I can I’ll take me camera with me so when the drier is on I can have a poddle up to the park, find a bench and sit hoping to catch a photo of some wild life in the woods.
Made a cuppa and did a bit on Coreldraw x7.
Popped down to the laundry room and a machine was free.
while the wash was a-washing I did me crossword book a bit, and managed to a few answers done from te previously started one – not a lot, but some.
Got the drier going, but had to use the one that was very low to the ground.
Whoever had used it before did not clean the filter out.
This gets to me somewhat yer know, I’ve never yet… no I did once, but only once find the drier had been had its filter cleaned by someone after using it’.
Blimey, they even supply us with toothbrushes and knives to do the job – and still the moronic idle scum-bags don’t do it! Still it don’t bother me in the slightest bit really.
Off on a walk up the hill into Woodthorpe Park, too many humans playing music, kids screaming, footballers etc for any chance of a decent photo of any wildlife. Huh!
As I was crossing the grass, I came across a bumble bee (I think it was) that was crawling through the grass, seemingly pressing its body against the blades?
I wondered what it was up to, even when I bent down close to take the photographs he wasn’t put off his path or intentions?
I went up and around the Mansion at the top of the hill and back down the other side.
I veered left into the woods and through a thicket (If that’s the right word?) of trees and was so impressed I wandered further in and around it then took a photo of it as I was about to come out of it.
As I thought how much I loved all those different shades of green, and the trees fighting each other for the sunlight, it dawned on me – I was lost! “Whoopsiedangleplop Mark 1 for the day”
I could see the tops of the flats and eventually found a way through back to them.
I hope no one saw me laughing at missen as I appeared out of the wood into the grassed area.
I took a photo of the flats as I emerged into the open – from the other side to those I have taken before.
Woodthorpe Court on the right, Winchester Court on the left.
The right one is where I now dwell, but on the other side of the building.
Then: “Whoopsiedangleplop Mark 2 for the day”, as I was steadying myself to take a good stable photo, I stepped forward a couple of paces to try and balance the shot – and trod in some dog-phoo!
Back into the bushes to clean me shoe up, then back to the flat and me laundry drying.
As I was taking out the washing “Whoopsiedangleplop Mark 3 for the day”!
Me back went when I was bending down getting the togs out – didn’t half feel a fool having two women help me up again. Double Tsk!
Back up to the flat, put me togs away and got the carrier bags ready for clearing out the cupboards tomorrow ready for the demolition men who are going to tear out me cupboards and drawers to fill in the hole in the wall – well that’s the plan anyway – but we’ll see when they get here eh?
Updated this diary and put the photo’s wot I took on it.
Pondered on what nosh to have. Bacon sarnies methinks?
Did some graphicalisationing again on Corel Draw and Paint x7.
Herbed chopped tomatoes and crispy bacon with bread thins fer me nosh. Rated 8.6/10
Had a great bath, soak and shave. It took me more time than having these did to medicate missen afterwards! Hehe! Put Phorpain gel on me legs hands and back.
Cuppa and took me evening medications.
Tired again now, and me back is still painful. Huh!
0405hrs: Woke, WC’d and got the laptop and kettle on.
Mused over me dreams: I’d got the old place sorted and sold… I was so glad and happy to be able to concentrate on the flat and had a load of people visit me, and they all wanted vegetarian sausages to eat?
Then I was at a football match and ran on the pitch, tackled Wayne Rooney and served him with a writ for knocking off a £2000 a time prostitute and being rude and crude in public?
I was glad the cramps again had not been too bad last night – but still intend to get some magnesium tablets today from Holland & Barrett’s.
Spent ages finishing yesterdays Diary and doing graphics.
Had a wash shave and spruced missen up. The angina was a bit rough with me, the haemorrhoids bleeding but otherwise not too bad at all.
Got me bag with Sister Jane and brother-in-law Pete’s nibbles, letters delivered for Margaret the previous tenant to hand in at the community shed, and the paperwork I needed for Steve of Age UK when I meet him later at the old dump and cash and bus-pass.
Off to the shed and handed in the letters to the Obergruppenfurher.
To the bus stop and had a nice chat with some of the other residents.
Got the Magnesium Tablets at last
Dropped off the bus in town and had an amble to Holland and Barrett’s to view the Magnesium on offer. They had sprays, creams and tablets.
Being as the tablets of 100 one-a-day pills were on offer, buy two get the second for a penny… I did.
Walked to Pete’s bus-stop and met him. We had a little natter and worked out where we needed to visit.
I wanted to buy a battery operated radio for the bathroom with preselect channels and a clock to replace the one I dropped and broke – and Pete needed to go to the Asian shop for some cheesey seaweed, and Wilkinson’s for some bits.
We went around several shops looking for a radio but the cheapest we could find was £49.99, so I decided against it.
We went into Wilkinson’s Pete got his bits and I got a £3 alarm clock, same model as the one I broke.
Then we plodded to the Asian shop and i joined Pete in getting a pack of the cheesey seaweed fer missen.
Walked into the City Centre to have a look to see if any of the charity shops had a battery radio for sale – they didn’t.
A Dangerous Nottingham Pavement Cyclist
The plonker on the bike across the road was one of the most dangerous gits of Nottingham Pavement Cyclists I’ve ever come across, he was on his phone as he drove along the pavement and actually hit one woman and just carried on! Tsk Nasty Ignorant Swine!
Left Pete at his bus-stop after our second failed search to find a radio had concluded.
Hobbled up to Parliament Street, buying a salad cob on the way to the bus-stop.
Got off in Carrington and nervously made me way to the old house. Where I overdid it with the lifting and sorting. Made up four large bags of stuff for the flat. Then managed to carry some furniture out to the bins for the looters to take later. Then put weed-killer on the garden weeds, and there were many there.
I was lucky enough to find a part-used tube of Betmethasone corticosteroid cream and put that in me bag to treat ‘Little Inchy with in the morning if he’s been bleeding again.
Age UK’s Steve does some phoning for me
Utterly fatigued and me back was playing something rotten by the time Steve arrived at the house.
He rang BT for me to cancel me phone and Internet – found there would be a £42 charge for leaving them. And we had to ring them back on the 18th to confirm our decision?
Then he rang British Gas (You know them… the French company!) They informed us there would be a £30 fee, one months payment costs and 59p a day charge until we informed them the house had been sold???
I was losing heart by then.
Steve and I went upstairs which started me arthritis off to join Anne Gyna and me bad back. Feeling pretty weary and unwell by now. Steve brought some stuff down and then lifted me and two of the bags back to the flat, bless him.
I was so some pleased things had got done for once, but not pleased with state of health at all.
He came in with me and reclaimed his blow-up mattress that he’d lent me.
After he went I did feel a bit poorly, but forced missen to eat the cob with a cuppa. Didn’t feel hungry enough to bother making a meal – so drained.
Got me next lot of medications pots sorted and done
Did this diary and then had to sort out me medication pots to make sure the old and new ones had some magnesium tablets in each pot – that took over an hour, but I was pleased I’d got it done.
Remembered to put the Betamethasone cream in the bathroom so it’d be handy for the morning if needed.
Late Nosh – with slightly burnt pasty
Sudden Hunger pangs now – so made a quick nosh, instant cheesey potatoes, pasty, beetroot and tomatoes.
I may have overdone the pasty a touch?.
Way passed me bedtime now.
Must try to get some of laundry done tomorrow, it’s stacking up yer know…
And some of the paperwork to get sorted and shredded, oh, and get the cupboards emptied ready for the Nottingham Homes man to destroy the kitchen cabinets and drawers when they fill in the holes in the wall… Tsk, work work work… I’m working ‘arder now than when I actually working – Huh!
