In Catalan: 14 de Desembre a L’any 2016
Stirred around 0330hrs: Again disappointed at my not recalling any of the dreams whatsoever. Just vague emotions. Tsk!
Within seconds, the feared wet, warm and tingling from the lower regions made itself felt as soon as I moved in the £300 second-hand recliner.
Dismounted the working faultlessly £300 second-hand recliner, tripped over a bottle of spring water and off to the wetroom for a WRHD session and investigated the state of Little Inchy. His state was not good. Much thick blood all over, but at least I managed to clean up the area and stop the bleeding a bit quicker this morning compared tp last night. Another strong kitchen towel roll finished off. Haha!
Made a cuppa and took the medications, got the computer going and emailed the surgery for an appointment, and the clinic was asking if my next appointment can be brought forward at all.
Worked on the diaries and did some graphics. Did one of Nottingham for the TFZers.
Then another for a bit of fun about TFZer pets in my wetroom. Hehe!
0645hrs: Having the Morrisons delivery coming twixt 0739 > 0830hrs, I got the ablutions done.
A lemon scented soap session again this not so cold morning.
Back to the computer and carried on. Getting to Facebooking eventually.
Got the chairs ready for the visitors, plenty if nibbles in pots spread about, kitchen towels if needed if they had a sniffle and bags with their presents and bites for Christmas to hand.
1040hrs: Made another cuppa and had a look out of the kitchen window to see if I could spot if Jane & Pete was arriving.
As I took the photographicalisation and wondered if the third car to the left was theirs, the doorbell sounded.
It was Jane and Pete coming.
So cheer-making to see them.
Chinwagged while I made them a brew of tea. Then ensconced themselves in the front room chairs. Pete in the £300 second-hand recliner, Jane in the £35 broken second-hand comfy, cuddly chair that I got from the Sue Ryder charity shop and paid £30 for delivery of.
Cheerful Pete on his mobile and Jane delving into the nibbles.
Good news from Jane, she had been to have a test at the QMC to see what her problem was she’d been suffering with, and got the all clear on the ‘Big C’. It was identified as Globus Hystericus and was treatable.
Good news, for us all! Yeehaa!
We nattered further for a while. Then, they showed interest in my new Dyson V6 cleaner. Memories turned over.
I gave them their pressies and nibbles in different bags, Red for the girl Jane and Blue for Boy Pete. Hehehe!
They gave me my present and one for Olive in thanks for looking after me.
A tin of shortcake biscuits with a tree on top, that when wound up played a Christmas tune with a beautifully written message for Angel Olive.
Walked them to the lifts when it the time for them to depart arrived. Felt a bit bad afterwards when I realised I’d not given Jane a peck on the cheek. Tsk! Dumbo me!
Went into the kitchen to turn over the two ginormous Wilja potatoes that I was boiling in the biggest saucepan I own, on the lowest setting.
I think it will take a couple more hours to get them right, then I intend to drain them and slice them putting the resulting feast into the oven along with two lamb leg steaks I had delivered from Morrisons earlier.
Back on the computer to update the diaries and have another spell on the TFZers site.
I was pleased with the food, perhaps one of my better attempts at real tasty cuisine? Mixed beans in tomato sauce with a touch of Worcester sauce and tomato puree with basil added.
The lamb leg steaks into the oven, then I added the boiled potatoes having quartered them to soak up the lambs leakages of tasty juice – Roasted them very slowly for about 40 minutes or so.
Burnt the edges of the potatoes nicely, and for once, the well-done lamb was not cooked to a crisp Hehe!
The presented fodder looked okay to me and tasted fantastic. Had a cheese roll with it and an apple with orange juice.
It was grand! I felt like a right patrician.
Indications from the innards suggested I attend the porcelain for a WRHD session again. Things are firming up again in this department. I took a Senna with the evening medications.
There was a good choice of TV programmes for me to fall asleep watching tonight. And I did! Hehe!
