Thursday 12th November 2015
Woke at 0445 hrs. Reluctantly, as I was feeling a bit under the weather with the cough and old I’d acquired, and needed the porcelain, to find ‘Little Inchy’ in a right state and another pyjama bottoms for the wash! Tsk, good start again!
However, on the bright-side, Arthur Itis, Anne Gyna, the reflux valve and the dizzies were very kind to me this morning and gave me a rest from their tribulations.
Got the kettle on and took me morning medications.
Laptop started. Diaries tackled.
Hot water back on again now, had a good bath shave and medicated various regions of me anatomy needing such actions this morning: Stretch lotion on me reflux valve area, Cetraben cream on face, neck, underarms and tootsies. Phorpain 10% on me hands, wrist, knees and feet, Ciprofloxacin and Otomize ear-drops in. Cleaned up ‘Little Inchy’ and his lesion, creamed him up, and Swabbed him, Creamed me haemorrhoids and used some after-shave to stop me neck bleeding where I’d cut it shaving (Waiting for a blocking treatment)… It’s a lark innit! No wonder I don’t have time to get things done with all this palava and me falling asleep so often. Hehe!
Took me rubbish to the chute and got ready to go out to get some of those fancy Anya potatoes from Sainsburys.
Met with several other tenants also waiting in the reception area for the bus to arrive.
The lady in a white collar is the one who found me hearing-aids the other week for me and came to me flat to let me know – always make sure she get first choice at me nibbles bless her.
Out to the bus and got on the outbound L9 and was soon dropping off right outside the Sainsbury store in Daybrook.
Things going well today I thought…
Fool that I am!
Near the way into the store I came across these here Bling jewellery items on sale.
I don’t go to Sainsburys very often cause of their prices and lack of choice nowadays – but it seems they are branching out a bit with this range of stuff on sale.
I seemed to have attracted some interest from the staff, and then a Security Guard by taking these photographicalisations of the gems on show.
He followed me around for a few minutes. As I approached the potato section to look for the Anya spuds he lost interest and wandered back to the Supervisor on the Help Desk.
Got two bags of the spuds cause they were short dated and reduced from £1.50 to £1.09. More weight to carry, Tsk! Got some jam doughnuts, a TV paper and a DVD of the last series of ‘Dixon of Dock Green’ made in 1966.
Walked slowly up into Arnold and took a look in Smiths to see if they had any cheapo books in that I fancied – they hadn’t. However, they did have a box of all five ‘Die Hard’ filums on DVD. I lent someone mine ages ago and didn’t get it back – Tsk! So I bought it.
Got to the bus stop after a wander around for a bit and caught the L9 back to the flats.
I like having an unplanned wander around – and no guilt at not getting any of the sorting done today!
Resisted the urge to fall asleep on the bus again, that’s twice in a row! (Superior mode adopted)
As we came up Winchester Street hill I heard an emergency vehicles Klaxons coming from behind the bus and caught the police car through the front screen as it belted past blues and twos going.
Got into the flat and made use of the WC.
Put me bits away and got the spuds on the boil to have later with me nosh.
Looking forward to these, perhaps with some of the BBQ sausages I got from Asda on Special Offer?
It suddenly became lighter outside and the view from the kitchen window seemed to look different somehow?
Still beautiful though.
I suddenly realised I had not seen fellow tenant Norman for a while.
The notice on the board downstairs said tenants meet every Thursday at 1300hrs – so I nipped down, out and along to the Community Shed to ask if anyone had seem him and take some letters I’ve received for Margaret the flats previous tenant at the same time.
Nobody was in, door locked?
Came back and visited the porcelain, changed back into me slippers then got on with updating this piffle.
Made and had me nosh:
BBQ sausages, tomatoes, pickled eggs Anya potatoes, bread thins followed by raspberry jam Doughnuts in imitation cream.
Rated this 9.55/10. Best ever again – top rating.
Then Wednesday’s things started to go downhill a bit…
I clouted me elbow taking the things back into the kitchen to wash-up and dropped the tray all over the floor.
Bent down to get clean it up and had a dizzy. Stayed down a bit while recovered.
Got up and clouted me head on a cabinet.
Carefully got the mop and bucket out and cleaned the floor without any further Whoopsiedangleplops, took me medications, then went in the bathroom for a wash and change into me night attire.
Struggling into the jammy bottoms and they tore around the gussets.
Settled in me chair and put a DVD in to watch. Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949), I was only an ankle snapper when this was made, watched and enjoyed it all the way through to the end without nodding off. That as a first. Thought things were looking up now…
Went into the kitchen to make a cuppa and found I’d left the damned hot water tap running again! Cleaned up the mess… Huh!
Thought I’d watch another film TV this time and got a big bag of pop crisps to nibble a few while watching the film – I nodded off at the first sign of commercials and woke up hours later with an empty giant pop crisps bag at me side and no memory of me eating them all?
I checked the bathroom and kitchen to make sure I’d turned everything off this time and returned to me chair with yet another cup of tea (I’ll get one drank eventually) and another dizzy came while I was sitting, then Anne Gyna started giving me some gip and as I got up to fetch an extra tablet to take I stubbed me toe on the trolley at the side of the chair and knocked over the paper shredder with me spectacles on it and then somehow managed to tread on the glasses! Another visit to the opticians is on the cards now. Tsk!
What an end to what was I thought a decent day! Humph!
