Maori: Rāpare 22 Pipiri 2017

0420hrs: Woke up pondering on the dreams I could remember. I’d left the pencil and pad on the computer desk. Extracted myself from the £300 second-hand recliner to retrieve them and by the time I’d got back in the chair, the memories had entirely gone from my muddled brain. I think they involved yesterday’s visit to Sister Jane, Pete and the Pussies. Tsk!

0530hrs: Up again and to the Porcelain Throne. I think I am mastering Constipation Konrad’s onslaught at last.

Medications were taken, kettle on and did the Health Checks with mixed results:

Got the computer going and started this diary off, the had the job of sorting yesterday’s, which took me hours to get done, with all the photographicalisations.

Made a cuppa and decided to get the ablutions tended to, freshen me up a bit.

Had a wee-wee.

Shaven, teeth cleaned, medicated and applied antiseptic to parts requiring to be done, showered and deodorisationalistically sprayed my magnificently honed mould of wobbly flesh, and made another cuppa.

Downloaded the Corel Paintshop Pro, particular Painter Plug-in. Need to make time to understand how it all works. Time eh? So short is it not?

WordPress reading next. Plenty to go at today.

Onto Facebooking. A lot on there to do as well.

Heard a noise and went to investigate… Mail had been delivered by Royal Mail.

It was the Insurance documents and the tablet-sized Towels/Face-flannel. You just dab them in water, and they expand and open out ready for use.

I’m going to hand one out to each resident to keep in their pocket or handbag in case of emergency. But it being midday now, I am too late to get to the free luncheon today, anyway. Humph!

Back to finish the Facebooking again, and the intercom rang – this time the Amazon delivery.

I had to open the corridor door and inform the two workmen near the lift of the upcoming delivery man. One of the lads took the parcel off of the driver and handed it to me, so I didn’t have to tread over all flaked off paint. Good of him that.

It was the Storm-Proof Umbrella, and a DVD of Heartbeat had been delivered. I took a photograph on the left.

The umbrella instructions, not sure if it shows in the picture, I shot separately and added to it so you may be able to read them. The brolly instructions tied to it, was in Chinese (I assumed, so not a lot of use to me. Huh!) It feels somewhat rugged anyway.

Minutes later, blow me down, the intercom rang again – this time it was another Amazon delivery. The last of the Heartbeat collections that I treated myself to.

Bothered the workmen again, but they were okayish about it.

Finished the Facebooking, had a wee-wee and made a mug of tea.

Shame it is too late for me to get out in time for the free fodder at the hut. Huh!

Finished the Facebooking at last and started graphicationalisationing on CorelDraw for some TFZer attempts.

Managed to get one of Marie and Roxy done.

Got the cheesy potatoes mixed and started cooking in the oven.

The cheesy potatoes preparation cause no, I say, No burns tonight!

Bacon and mushrooms accompanied the gloriously tasty cheesy potato, and a lemon yoghourt.

Had a wee-wee.

Settled to watch one of the Heartbeat DVD’s, and got through three episodes before I drifted off into slumber.

Woke up around midnight convinced it was morning and time to rise, had a wee-wee and a failed heavy duty session. Coming out of the wet room, it dawned on me it was a little dark.

Tutted, swore at me and head down again.

  1. You got through three episode of Heartbeat before falling asleep? Must be pretty good. I’m not familiar with it, but I haven’t seem any recent TV shows in 35 years. I have to go back to the early 1980’s, the last time we had a TV, to have seen anything contemporary for the time. An umbrella with Chinese instructions? Umbrellas are pretty intuitive I would think. Are there instructions in English that are obviously translated by some poor, starving, eight year old prostitute slave with a Chinese/English dictionary and Google translate? I love reading those kinds of instructions. Personally, I only have umbrellas that go on photo lights and studio flashes. It doesn’t really rain enough out here to warrant an umbrella, and using one during an afternoon thunderstorm is simply holding up a lighting rod (there are lots of people killed by lightning around here, with or without umbrellas). Nice photos and good looking dinner.

    • Heartbeat started on TV in 1992, Tim. It ran for eighteen years.
      I didn’t have TV for around 18 years before I moved into this flat. So, the DVDs give me a chance to catch up on what I’ve missed. The series was set in the 1960s. Perhaps my favourite show.
      On the Amazon site, where I got the brolly from, the is a graphic showing how to get the brolly down and not to pull it down like a normal brolly, or you will slice a bit of your finger off. Use the button and press the handle up into the top half of the thing. Hehehe! Not in those words, but that’s what it meant. (Not very clear that, sorry mate)
      No metal in this brolly. I wonder if what you say about the lighting, is why this is so?
      Off for an INR blood test soon, so must rush. Cheers Sir.

    • Always seems the same when I order anything from them, Corin.
      Some by Royal Post, UPS, UK Carriers etc.
