Inchcock Today Tue 22 Mar 16: Disappointing day overall

Tuesday 22 March 2016

On this day: 1903 – Niagara Falls ran out of water due to a drought!

GC blipvinUp at 0425hrs, mind racing a bit; Got to beg someone to ring the surgery for me to make the extra appointment as directed last night by the Queens Medical Hospital Anticoagulation Department, for Thursday.

I felt a bit worried, that they would not be able to fit me in at short notice so as I can get there early, or later than the Winwood Social Hour Meeting at 1000>100hrs.

Made a cuppa and got the laptop going, took the morning medications. Finished Monday’s Diary off then started this one.

Made a start creating and collating graphics for the next “Nottingham City Homes: Part Five: Repairs Guide for New Senior Citizens in Indepedendant Living flats”

I did some Facebooking, but not much, as I had spent too long on the ‘Repairs’ post, and had to get the ablutions done, so as to get to ask someone in the Community Hut to call the surgery for an appointment for me’.

Spruced up, I took the rubbish bags to the chute and poddled to the hut.

Obergruppenfurher Julie was in having her breakfast, that made me popular with her. Hehe! I gave her some cakes and she called the surgery for me. I asked to see if I could get a very early appointment or one after twelve o’clock, so I could attend the Windwood Social Hour.

They said they have no appointments available at all, and I was to ring in on Thursday morning to see if there had been a cancellation! Grobblesocks!

Marvellous that! The Queens Medical Anticoagulation tell me it is vital I book the appointment and I find I can’t. I suppose this means I’ll have to go to the Queens Medical Haematology and have it done in the afternoon. Which involves three buses there and back, and a wait of anything up to three hours in the hall, when I arrive. Ah well, Julie says she’ll ring them for me on Thursday morning, so there might be a chance yet.

P1050898Dejectedly back to the flat and took a picture from the kitchen window of the path that goes up into Woodthorpe Grange Park.

No doggies about just now, in fact, no one at all.

Got some potatoes on the boil for later and made a cuppa. Afterwards, I put some Savlon antiseptic cream on my finger that I burnt on the pan.

Then I did some very disappointing efforts at graphics and deleted them, they were terrible.

Momentos moment here: I made a decision!

I decided to go to the QMC tomorrow for the INR blood test!
