Khmer (Cambodian): កាលពីថ្ងៃសុក្រទី 9 ខែមិថុនាឆ្នាំ 2017
0220hrs: Stopped looking at the Election Results, with blurry eyes. Hehe!
To the Porcelain Throne with good results, I am now confident that Constipation Konrad is evacuating my innards.
Dropped off to sleep and dreamt about a cyber-friend from Texas. I’d met up with her in a large shoe shop, and we could not decide which pair of footwear she should purchase? We ended up with her buying a pair of pink goloshes she wanted to wear on top of her slippers? There was more to this dream, a vague recollection of us in a boat… but not certain. Hey-Ho! The second dream I’ve recalled recently, that one.
0330hrs: Got the washing bag and accoutrements down to the laundry room and into the washer, back up to the dwelling, had a wee-wee and carried out the Health Checks for this morning:
Sys 137, Dia 74, Pulse 77, Temp 36 and weight 14.78; Nowt to fret over methinks.
Made me a brew.
Down to move the laundry from the washer to dryer. Returned to the flat and had another wee-wee. up
Got the computer on and started to work on the diaries.up
Had a wee-wee, and down again to collect the washing.
Cleaned the filters, counters and machines.
While all this going up and down on the lifts, every time I left the elevator and returned, it was on a different floor? I worked out that with it being so early, the security man must be doing his rounds.
Up in the lift and got the clothing put away in the airing cupboard and on the clothes racks.
I must get this closet sorted out and rearranged a bit soon. Ahem!
Had a wee-wee, and back onto the computer doing the diaries again.
Made a fresh brew in the new smaller mug, come cup.
Had a look at the current state of the election results:
Going to be a hung Parliament for sure. Only four seat results to come in so the Tories cannot get the 326 seats they need for overall control, even if they win all of the four. It’ll be interesting, to see who they partner or form an alliance with.
Did some WordPress Reading. Duodenal Donald started hassling me. Huh!
Went on Facebooking for a while.
Did a graphic of Thomas Greene, a TFZer of distinction… so the TFZ gals tell me? Haha, jealousy raises its head?
Posted it off to the site.
Ablutions were done next. The water didn’t seem as hot as usual?
Medicated and creamed the areas in need of medicating and creaming, took the bin bags out and to the rubbish chute, got all dressed and polished shoes and had a wee-wee!
Out and off on a hobble into Sherwood, down Winchester Street onto Mansfield Road. On the way limping down the road, new growths were coming through the railings and wooden fences; All so beautiful and fresh!
At the bottom of the hill, I spied a squirrel just stood on the pavement. I decided to get the camera out and take a photographicalisation of it.
It nipped speedily into a house driveway, and I missed him/her!
Tsk! Still, it came out alright as photographs go. Hehehe!
The change in the weather was surprising. Very pleasant now.
Right up Mansfield Road and called into the fruit & veg shop and bought some pod peas. Then up a few stores and called into the Co-op shop. Where, hard to believe I know, but I bought some more pod peas from them, along with some 99-Tea-bags and next week’s TV Magazine.
Further up the road and called into the Wilko Store. Got Flyspray, Dettol Lavender antiseptic disinfectant and some Exotic Ylang & Freesia scented softener for the laundry. Love the smell of this one.
Nosied in the charity shops but didn’t get anything, then up to the bus stop where there were two lady and two gentlemen fellow tenants awaiting the arrival of the L9 bus. Had a jolly good chinwag, and it was here that I realised I’d purchased tow load of the pod peas. So I gave one bag to a lady. No point in keeping on to them, they would be rotting by the time I got to eat them, and if I did eat the lot, the innards would not be happy. Haha!
Back in the rooms and a wee-wee was tended to.
Put the fodder away, all apart from that which I was going to use for today’s dinner. Cod in batter, potato croquettes, beetroot, tomatoes, Surimi sticks, an apple and some fresh pod peas.
Set about doing another TFZer graphic, of Thomas Schuppert: CorelDraw froze, and I lost it all! Depressed I gave up and closed down the computer accompanied with a few well-chosen expletives being uttered!
The nosh came out alright.
Unfortunately, I did drop the oven glove in the oven tray while taking out the potatoes and fish. So I put in it soak in the bowl. A right gooey mess to sort out. Tsk!
The tomatoes were not very nice, but all else was grand and tasty enough for me to give the feast a 9/10, despite to horrid foul, bitter vegetables!
Took the medications.Checked on the viewing on the TV magazines, lots of interest tonight. Got settled in the £300 second-hand recliner with some nibbles for later and a bottle of lemon and lime spring water. Turned on the gogglebox.

Fell asleep before the first programme came on.
Woke, got up for a wee-wee, and on the way to the wetroom, Dizzy Dennis attacked with a right nasty effort. Blooming good job it is such a minuscule apartment I live in; within three limped paces I was near enough to support myself on the door handle. Although the Dennis Dizzy was short lived, the strength of it fritted me a bit for a second. Thought I as going over for sure this time, but no, all came back to normal quickly.
Back to the recliner and settled again. Law & Order was showing on the box now.
Woke in need of another wee-wee. Tsk!
Back in the chair, a documentary was on the box now, about the war.
Woke again with a start. Had something happened to wake me? After few seconds I realised the mobile phone that I leave on the arm of the recliner in the hope of hearing ring, was ringing! Hehe! Fumbled to answer it in time, and managed it; It was the DVT Clinic lady with the instructions that the Doctor needs to see me and made an appointment for me for 1300hrs on Monday 12th June. I mentioned the dizzies, and she seemed to expect them, told me if I get any within minutes of the previous one, to dial 999 and get help. Thanked her and made a note on the pad about the appointment.
Some election result analysis programme was showing on the box now. Oh, good, I thought, I’ll watch this…
The phone rang again. The Anticoagulation Monitoring and Therapy people rang, giving me the new Warfarin dosages for this week, telling me it is not concrete, and the next extra test results will mean possible changes. Made an appointment for me for the very odd sounding time of, 10:07hrs on Monday 12th June, but at the Doctor’s Surgery, not their clinic. Which is a pity, cause I’ve got to visit there to get the new Anticoagulation Alert Card to replace the one getting into a rather tatty state.
Gave up on the telly viewing and got the head down.
Up for a few wee-wees before I nodded off, very late on.
