Inchcock Today Fri 20 Nov 15: The runs, dizzies and discombobulated. Humph!

Friday 20th November 2015


Woke still feeling tired, later than usual at 0530 hrs.

WC’s, no smells today – but Little Inchy needed attentions again.

Made a cuppa and took me medications.

My mind seemed to be a little out of control this morning – racing away considering various topic, problems, of it’s own accord? Hard to describe, but for a moment I really thought ‘Hello, I’m losing it, my time is nigh… most weird.

Finished yesterdays diary of and posted it, but still not feeling too good. Dizzies started, stomach ache, can’t concentrate. All this after I felt so good last night too. Humph!

Didn’t risk a bath with feeling a bit unsteady in mind and body, so had a stand up bath and shave instead.

P1020483Got down in time for the bus into town.

Had a good chin-wag with the bloke for the 4th floor on the way into town – he had some fascinating stories to tell me.

Phoned Jane and Pete when I got into town to make sure I was alright to go see them earlier than planned, then caught the bus out to West Bridgford.

P1020484Old Fooey, bless him somehow knew I was there and came over for a fuss – this amazed Jane and Pete, the poor old cat being partially blind and almost deaf with arthritis as well..

I can’t help it, I adore him to bits.

They helped me back on me feet and made me a cuppa and a grand old natter ensued.

Jane had a cold and didn’t look too well, made an extra fuss of her. Pete showed me the damage to the garage and his car where the tiles had fallen off of next doors roof and through his garage door. Gave her some nibbles I’d taken for her – and she didn’t tell me off once!

Nipped off to catch the bus back into town, hoping I’d make it in time to catch the five passed L9 bus to the flats from King Street.

I didn’t, just missed it. Still felt a little puddled and could not remember some of the things I’d spoken with at Jane’s house.

I had an hour to kill so foolishly went in Primark for a look around and came out with 3 new pairs of undies and a jumper, Hey-ho!

P1020487Took a photo of ladies bags on display while I was in there, for the Troll Free Zone gals on Facebook.

Managed to get an ‘odd’ look from a supervisor on me way out with me own bags. Hehe!

Walked through the slab square where the Christmas Noshery stalls had P1020486opened and the skating rink was almost ready, think it was due to open later today.

Seconds after taking this photo the skies clouded over and it became a bit dark.

Still had a while to wait for the bus so I wandered around the block up through P1020488Clinton Street. Good job me knees were in good nick otherwise I might have got knocked off me feet by the many Nottingham shoplifters… what am I saying, shoppers I meant… rushing around in search of early bargains in the shops.

I called in Tesco on the way to the bus stop to see if they had some Fresh cream French Horn cakes in – they hadn’t, but that didn’t bother me in the least. WPlie

Had another dizzy at the bus stop, but only a very short one. The chap for the 4th floor arrived at the stop and we had another natter. When we got on the bus he told me some wonderful stories from his past again. He’s 86 years old and fitter than wot I am.

Got in the flat and used the porcelain, a bit runny and persistent and the stomach started rumbling afterwards?

Got the kettle on and made a cuppa then had to return to the WC for a repeat performance! It took so long the tea went cold and I had to make another cuppa.

I was wandering about a bit now, but not through the knees or dizzies – Mmm!

Might be a touch of flu?

IMG_0004Settle down to update this diary and started shivering a bit, and the wind was belting into the flat again then the rain started.

It got rather heavy too.

Went to get medications from the kitchen and swayed a bit en-route.

Then had to call at the porcelain again.

If things stay like this I might be in trouble. Still I’ve got me wrist alarm bracelet on.

Still hard to concentrate for some reason?

Did some Facebooking okay, and no more dizzies or wandering, just the runs. Six trips now in two hours – how is this possible.

Some lovely comments today.

I’ve asked one of me Cyber-carers Lynda if having soup for nosh is advisable. I actually feel like eating at the moment, not surprising I suppose cause I must have emptied me innards completely by now surely?

Did me emails checks.

Then found I had not emptied me innards completely by now surely, and even had a dizzy on the way to the bathroom!

Took me medications and put a tin of soup in’t pan, and had it with some bread… in betweens trips to the bathroom – getting fed-up with this now… Hehehe!

Hope I get some peace soon from the innards. Head-down sounds a good idea…

TTFN all.

Inchcock Today Thu 19 Nov 15: Woke up a little puddled…

Thursday 19th November 2015


Did a lot better with staying awake tonight, no nodding of until 2100hrs, the blinking started and I reckon I must nodded of dozens of time for a few minutes and each time I woke it was for a few seconds only then drifted off to find when I woke around 0400hrs needing the WC, confusion reined in me brain – really odd… I felt a tad confused as to where I was and why I was here in a flat, yet I knew where everything was, the layout etc?

In the WC and it all became clear where and why and how I got here and a feeling of great joy that I had got here. Bit weird that sensation?

Kettle on, tried hot water it was back on again, made a cuppa and took me medications.

Laptop on and the stomach started to churn a bit again, not the ulcer or reflux this time, the innards. Still, made a change dinnit! Hehe!

Looking forward to having a good bath and soak later. Can’t do it yet, too early. The waterworks make a noise and might disturb me neighbours like.

Finished off yesterdays post, and checked emails.

Started this diary and graphics.

P1020476Went to make another cuppa and the view from the kitchen window was startling, so I tooketh a photograph of it.

The rain had stopped, the wind had dropped and all was looking good.

Started Facebooking for a while, well a long time actually.

BJ rang on the land-line, he’s coming for a cuppa at 1100 hrs.

Got a jolly-good soak in the bath, shaved, teggies done and nipped down to the lobby to meet BJ when he arrives at 1100 hrs. Took some nibbles with me and the crossword book.

One of the lifts had conked out – hey-ho.

Settled in a chair in the lobby where I could see if BJ arrived as he’s park in the disabled places across the road from the door.

Handed some nibbles to the lady tenant who was doing her laundry.

1100 hrs came and went, not surprised in the least, BJ has never been on time since I’ve known him. Such a decent chap though.

1140 hrs he arrived.

Up to the lift, I the flat and we had a damned good natter for over an hour, had a strong cup of tea, and reminisced .

IMG_0002He then helped me get the mat laid properly. I gave him his birthday present. He agreed to pick me up next Tuesday to go to the launderette and departed.

A few minutes later he rang, he was outside the door. Opened it and he had bad news – the other lift had gone kaput now!

Poor chap had to walk down 12 floors to get to his car.

Glad I had no plans to go out today… well I had, but it wasn’t important. Wonder when they will get the lifts sorted?

Made myself another cuppa and got the laptop on to update this amazing diary (Hehe).

Main6 Main7Started the graphics for me latest post.

Main9Main8Took me hours and hours, to get them something like right, but I enjoyed doing them like.

“Inchcock Shows Signs of Contentment”

Then did the text, that just flowed easily and naturally – it’s rubbish and bad English but I think it’s fun.

Got me nosh in the oven and in the pan and called me sister Jane to see how she was. Good chin-wag and it transpires I am allowed to visit her tomorrow before 1300hrs as long as I call first to make sure they will be in.

IMG_0005Beefy oven chips, chilli with black bean sauce and the last two cheesy cobs, followed by orange jelly and spray-cream.

Rated this one 9/10.

Did the washing up and sat down to read me book…. Zzzz…
