Italian: Giovedi 18 Maggio 2017
0200hrs Woke and off for a wee-wee. Got back down again and slept until 0306hrs.
First thing, I took the medications, had another wee-wee and heavy duty session on the Throne, messy gooey.
Then got on with trying to uninstall and reload Google Chrome to get rid of the freezing. Searched for advice first, but I could only get at far as Programs, clicked Chrome in the box and the computer telling me to ‘Select all Google Chrome Items’ – there were no more to pick or choose? Fed-up with this, I’ll see if I can get some help or anyone knows of someone who can come to the flat to have a look at and give me a hand, I’ll ask at the Windwood Social Hour, not very hopeful though. Grr!
Very frustrating having to wait for hours for it to reset itself when it does, it doesn’t frequently, reset reboot reload, turn off and reboot all the time, and every time I try to go on Facebook or YouTube. I’ll have to stay off for until I can get someone to pay to this sorted out… if I can?
Losing heart here.
Back to the Porcelain Throne again, no pebble-dash but gooey and sticky now! Going through the toilet paper at a fast rate of knots. Tsk! Haemorrhoid Harold was bleeding badly this morning.
Tried doing this update and finishing yesterday’s diary, which took hours due to my being too nervous to do it when I got back from the trip out Wednesday and being convinced I could sort out the Chrome uninstall and reinstall procedure today. Foolish me!
I wish I’d taken a photo from the kitchen window earlier now.This morning when I got up was crystal clear, look at it now?

I realised I’d not put the map of yesterday’s marathon hobble in the diary.
So, here it is.
Just to show off and pretend I’m as fit as a fiddle.
The feet ain’t half stinging now, but I’ve only got myself to blame. Although I did enjoy the visit to the park and ducks and was well pleased with the results from Mr Redmain… or, was it Redman?

I’d like to make a note of my appreciation of the Pensioners Free Bus Pass too.
I reckon without this, yesterday’s bus trips would have cost me around the figure of £12-£15 in total!
By heck… the stomach and innards have just started off grinding and bubbling away again now. Tsk!
I did some WordPress reading for a while.
Still unable to get on and use Facebook without Chrome problems.
The view from the kitchen window, when I made another mug of tea has changed again. A lot clearer once more? I got the last of the pod peas, some small potatoes and beef in the Crock-Pot cooking.
Took the rubbish bags to the chute. Then got the ablutions tended to and deodorised me up nicely. Made sure the raffle prizes and nibbles were in the bag.
Set off to the Tenants Social Hour.
A good session and one lady suggested I go to the phone shop in the Victoria Centre and ask ‘The Geeks’ for help with the computer problem. If I sign to pay the something monthly, they will always be on hand to help. That lady had signed with them. So, I decided to go into town afterwards and have a word with them, might try to get some pod peas at the same time.
BJ was there, and a few laughs were had.
At the bus stop the weather looked marvellous to me, the trees so beautiful.
Another good listen best I could to the chinwagging.
As the bus went along Porchester Road, I took this photographicalisation of the sky towards the City Centre.
I could see a face in the clouds. When I got back, I made up the above graphic of it. I just wondered if anyone else can see it?
Dropped off the bus at the usual place near the Victoria Centre and hobbled in and through to the Phone Warehouse shop and to the back counter where the ‘Geek Squad’ sign indicated they would be located.
The chap with the blonde hair informed me the Geeks are only there for three hours a week on Saturday mornings! Deflated about that.
Poddled to the Tesco store, but they didn’t have any fresh pod peas in stock again! Bought some SourDough Bread, though.
So I went to the Fruit and Veg market and got some peas up there.
Out of the mall and into the Wilko Store. Got some disinfectant, foil and deodorant.
Had a walk up Clinton Street window shopping.
But it was little, well, a lot more hectic than yesterday, so I gave up and got out soon as I could back onto Upper Parliament Street, and went to the bus-top, just avoiding a Burk on a bike Nottingham Pavement Cyclist.
Caught the L9 bus back to the flat complex.
As the bus turned right, off of Porchester Street and down a narrow part of the route, I tried to get a photograph of the steep hill. But didn’t make too good a job of it cause a van turned in at the same time in front of the bus.
Battling falling asleep again now. I actually did nod off a few times, but luckily as the bus turned into Chestnut Walk, I stirred.
A quick chinwag with some residents at the bus stop and up with a little concern that I might not make it in time, to the flat and the Porcelain Throne.
Then, I moved the fodder into a saucepan to warm through and washed the slow cooker. The computer and Google are still letting me down. Will not let me work on Facebook again.
I got the meal, a stew of sorts served up.
Podded peas, turnip, small potatoes, made a nice caramelised gravy to go with it and added some beef gravy and a tin of stewed steak to it.
Slices of Sourdough bread to soak up the nice rich gravy and a Lemon Fool to follow with this fool enjoying it a lot. 9.4/10 rating.
Got a phone call from Obergruppenfurheress Jenny, she had kindly arranged for a friend to call and have a look at my Google Chrome problems. Later when I was asleep and in the land of nod, the door chime burst forth and a note had been posted through the letterbox for me from Jenny. She told me a chap called Sam would be visiting me tomorrow night sometime after 1800hrs. That was so kind of her to help out.
Having woken up, I decided to make a mug of tea… Accifauxpa Time! Dropped the milk and cleaned it up.
Watched some TV for ages, no nod-offs in between. But the worries over the Chrome issue kept overtaking other thoughts.
