Woke after a dream filled kip at 0303hrs, fell asleep in the chair again.
Sat for a while trying to recall details of me dreams. In an office tower, empty abandoned, dusty… Searching for something, every-time I got through a door into a room or office I forgot what I was searching for, went back out of the room and the corridor was different to when I went into the rooms from it? This seemed to go on for ages?
Realised I’d missed last nights medications and pondered on whether or not to take just one Warfarin tablet with me morning ones?
In the end I made a cuppa and took me morning medications early while I thought of it, with just a half a tablet of Warfarin extra.
WC and oh dear, had ‘Little Inchy’ been bleeding! And then I realised that with Steve from Age UK helping me sort the Bookcase out yesterday, I’d forgotten to go to get some more pads from the chemist! Tut! Must get some today, really must!
I called the 111 NHS assistance number to ask for advice on any creams I could get over the chemist counter to safely treat Little Inchy. I had to go through 12 minutes of questions before I could ask them what I wanted to. A clinician is to call me back.
Sorry I phoned now.
Lady rang back. I asked her if there is anything I can use safely to stem the bleeding from me penis. No suggestions other than get in the bath and soak Little Inchy then dab him dry.
Told me to see GP.
Well that got me a long way to improving me condition.
Maybe I can see the chemist later and ask him if there is anything I can use to stem the bleeding from Little Inchy?
I’ll have a bath later when the running water will not bother me neighbours.
Went into the kitchen to make a cuppa and the site of the new 3 tier storage thingy in its box, waiting for me attentions to bring it to life made me feel a bit guilty.
One look at all the parts and the so-called assembly manual and I decided to leave it for a bit… (Coward!)
Someone might call and take pity on me and help me get me head around the instructions. Tut, pathetic!
I think the check list of the 345 pieces scared me.
Went into the bedroom come storage come bomb-site bedroom that is… Hehe! and sorted some of the cardboard from the packaging ready to take down to the caretakers room later.
Ran me bath to give Little Inchy a good soaking, had a shave did me teggies, cut me toe nails (Not an easy or a pretty site I can tell yers), rubbed the cream on me skin cancer wound, pain gel into me knees and hands, dabbed Little Inchy painfully with the last bit of cortisoid cream, put the oil in me ear-holes and splashed after-shave on the four cuts I’d managed to give missen shaving this morning. Finally got in the bath without any Whoopsiedangleplops and had a good soak. Little Inchy somewhat painful and didn’t like me washing or creaming him.
Got missen dried and the bath and sink cleaned. Then filled up and sealed two large box’s with waste cardboard from the drawers, cabinet, and book-case and carried them down the stairs (One at a time of course, they were too large for one or two trips) left them outside Arthur Daley’s… I mean the caretakers room.
I wont half raining still.
Saw a squirrel under the trees at the end of Chestnut Walk. Tried taking a photo but it came out rather miserably, too far away methinks.
Crossed over the road and limped up the much used gravel footpath into Woodthorpe Grange Park and left down onto Mansfield Road.
That or as I say, I’ve lost it with the camera and done to it that it doesn’t like?
Got into Sherwood and straight to the carpet shop.
They had no carpets of the size I wanted, and none in brown. Another wasted exercise then. Haha, fancy that!)
Now what happened next is a bit of mystery – an unexplained mystery:
I was on me way to the Co-op to get some bread and use me £2 off voucher and met chap from the 6th floor of the flats and stopped to have a little natter with him. He was telling me about his collection of Owl ornaments and his solar-powered model owls he had in his window – a bus came and I got on it with him back to the flats?
Puzzled as to why I had done that, I decided that as the rain had eased off a bit, I’d nip up to the flat and make use of the WC, then walk back again to the Co-op store for me bread and bits. Tsk!
I had unfortunately to clean up Little Inchy. By the time this was done, I remembered I was also going to go to the chemist to get something to replace the long longer any left in stock swabs.
Plodded down to the entrance doors to be greeted by pouring rain lashing away at them. Decided not to risk going out in this weather again and returned to the flat.
Followed by lemon curd Swiss roll and spray cream.

Updated this, made a cuppa and did some WordPress reading.
Was soon nodding off and on in the chair.
