Inchcock Today Tue 6 Oct 15: Confused

Tuesday 6th October 2015

Up at 1205hrs… well I fell asleep early last night. Tsk!

01topj7WC’d and made a cuppa – realised I’d missed me medications last night, so took just one Trental blood release and one Warfarin tablet otherwise they might get a false reading at me INR blood level test later this morning.

Laptop on and pottered doctoring some earlier graphic attempts for a while, checked emails, Facebooked a bit, then to the WC again!

Checked me appointment time on the Google calendar, 0930hrs, so must set off in plenty of time as the first bus here is not until 0930hrs, and of course that is the time we pensioners can use our wonderful free bus-passes.

No bath either now, cause the noise of the running water will disturb me neighbours in the nearby flats (Apartments). A stand up wash and shave later will have to do.

01topj8The time flew by and it was soon time for me morning medications.

I did another search for the missing for three weeks now first time used saucepan lid.

I’m dumbfounded as to where this might have gone too?

Might get a new saucepan and lid today after going to the surgery? It’s possibly the only way I’ll then find the missing one? Hehe

I thought about how people coped during the war years after I read an article about alien-women being moved at the start of the war:


Women classed as enemy aliens being escorted by police and officials to board trains at a London station, at the start of their journey for internment on the Isle of Man early in the Second World War.

Apparently the locals on the island had less food than the internees?

Scattered showers forecast for today, better take me brolly with me when I go out.

Remembered to do me health checks (Novel that for me!) Sys 140 Dia 68 pulse 68 Temp 36. I’ll ask the nurse if this is about right today, looks okay to me.

AngFinished and posted a Funny Caption Competition on the TFZ site.

This is Sandra Lentz, a notoriously avid Funnel Cake lover…

My caption was “Go on try it… Make my day!”

I put me Morrison’s order in.

Had me wash and shave, then got the bags ready to throw down the waste chute on me way out.

Called at the  Winwood Community shed in me way.

Chin-wag with Deana and Julie, gave em some nibbles.

Then walked into P1020214down into Sherwood in the light-drizzling rain.

The sun doing its best to come out.

The traffic was building a bit in Sherwood.

As I got towards the top of the hill P1020216it got a bit heavier – the bus lane being in use didn’t help.

Over the brow and down to the Gp surgery and booked myself in with the receptionist…

Only to find I’d got it wrong Again. I was certain the time of the INR Warfarin blood tests was 0900hrs – she informed me it was for 0945hrs – Tsk!

And I’d not got me crossword book with me either.

The nurse kindly saw me earlier though bless her.

Off and poddled down to the launderette and had a natter with BJ. He’s going to pick me up Sunday and take me to the Papplewick Pumping Station 1940’s do. Thanked him and went to Lidl to get some nosh.

Got some Pork Frikadellens, seafood sticks, porridge pots, a white bloomer, a Lemon Swiss roll and some canned kippers in tomato sauce with vegetables, another tenner gone.

Caught the bus back into Sherwood.

P1020217Went in Wilkos in search of a cheapo saucepan with a lid and another can-opener, got em both alright, and a carpet cleaner spray all for under £9.

Poddled over the hill and up through Woodthorpe Park.

Had a sit on one of the benches for a while hoping to catch some wildlife to photo without any luck.

On up the path and down the crumbling path to the flats.

01topj3I took some photographs at the bottom near the flats of a squirrel, but he wouldn’t stay still long enough for me to get a decent one.

Into the flat and WC’d urgently.

P1020222Put me purchases away and got the kettle on.

Laptop on and filled in the Wilko customer thingy – I might win £100 they tell me… yea!

Got seasoned baked beans on the pan warming slowly, and the oven on and the Frikadellens in the oven.

Rang Pete and Jane, they are too busy this week for a meeting.

P1020225Got me nosh ready.

Lovely nosh it were… but I made too much of it.

Gave it a 9/10 though, I put some black bean sauce in with the baked beans and other seasoning and it tasty super!

For some reason it ages for me to nod-off. Tsk!
