Tuesday 22nd September 2015
Woke up in the chair 0320hrs. Reflux valve, bleeding Little Inch and haemorrhoids and toothache the first things I noticed. Hehe!
To the WC, ‘Little Inchy’ creamed, haemorrhoids bleeding badly, stomach still churning away, but the toothache seems to have eased a little since I woke up.
Got the laptop on.
Made a cuppa and took me medications.
Facebooked catching up with wot I missed yesterday. Checked emails.
Got missen a good spit and polish ready fer the Morrison delivery of fodder.
Morrison’s delivery arrived and I put the stuff away.
BJ rang he’s on his way. Got ready and went down to meet him, rather pleased with myself for remembering to take me mobile, camera, hearing-aids, shopping list – all four items on it, the washing, powder, softener and change for the machine with me.
Got as far as the lift…
Went back and collected me hat.
When we arrived at the launderette I tried to contact Steve at Age UK – no answer again. Left message asking him to contact me.
I had to get to their loo, hobbling hastily I got there just in time.
Had a good wander round, and ended up spending only £18.15.
That includes a pack of good thick socks at £6.
Bottle bitter orange mixer, mandarins in orange jelly, Washing up liquid, chicken sausages and two new items, well one new one being made again. Walkers have started to produce the Marmite crisps again, si I nabbed two multi-packs of 6. Also spotted some Sweet potato chips in seasoned oil – expensive mind – £2.59 for a tiny bag of em. One of the TFZ gals recommended them so I had a go and got one.
Took a photo of some ‘Bling’ for the TFZ gals.
The toothache started throbbing again.
Got an ear dropper from the chemist on the way out.
Not too busy today, far less than usual when I used to go regularly with BJ on a Tuesday.
Tried ringing Steve at Age UK again – I do like wasting my time don’t I? Huh!
The lift was making some disturbingly odd sounds?
WC’d and got me dinner started, then laptop on and updated this tosh.
Took a long distance photo with new Panasonic camera of the top of the path into the woods – the first time I think that I’ve looked in this direction without seeing owners or dogs or ankle-snappers, Park Cyclists or yobs – in fact no one was in site?
The Sweet potatoes were grand.
Cleaned me pots, opened the blister-pack that held the ear-dropper in it – tugged at the edge and what do yer reckon? – Whoopsiedangleplop, When it finally gave I hit me blooming chin and set the tooth off again! Grrr!
One more final attempt to get in touch with me councillor Steve from Age UK – failed again.
Back on the laptop to catch up up to here, then tried the Serif Draw again – never really got into this package, I’ll see how it goes.
Waste of time, I can’t get used to it at all.
Lost hours with it – fruitless hours.
Watched the TV for a good while. Until I fell asleep for a minute or so and pressed a button on the remote and woke with the screen bare bara notetelling me there is no DVD in the unit?
I tried me best to find out how to clear it back to the TV. An hour or so later I gave up and turned it off, disconnected then reconnected the goggle-box, and still the same message came up. Then, hard to understand how this happened I know: I dropped the remote and caught it as it hit the chair arm – and the TV came back on?!?!?
All this because John Lewis who sold me the set sent a different remote to that in the instruction manual, and I could find no details or guides for this replacement control on the web anywhere. Tsk!
Nodded off again eventually, woke up with toothache.
