Frisian: Zaterdag 29 Juli 2017
0400hrs: Sprang awake in desperate need of the Porcelain Throne, tummy rumbling. Dizzy Dennis pestering me again. Little Inchy sore but no more bleeding after the session in the night.
Stuck my head out of the kitchen window while making a mug of tea.
Noticed the tenant’s vehicles were all parked nicely and with no naughties having to park on the yellow lines.
Being a Saturday, I assume no workmen will be on site this morning?
Took the medications and did the Health Checks. Weight still 14.88, Tsk!
I noticed the little black splatter marks on the window and decided to have another bash at getting them off.
They were on the outside of the window. Turned it around and used the usual vinegar spray on them and the rest of the window-pane. No luck whatsoever didn’t touch them! Got the scrubber on them and tried again. Nothing moved! I even thought they must be on the inside then – so turned it back and it wasn’t, so turned it around again and got the Fairy Extra Strong spray and scrubbed in into the marks, again, utter failure!
But, after my disastrous attempts at freeing the stuff from the window, the view was still breathtakingly beautiful. I, however, knowing that the marks are there, see them instead of the scenery. Grogglecocks!
This was frustrating and baffling me now. I tried some toilet cleaner and bleach on the spots – again, an entirely incompetent result!
A thicker new scouring pad and wire brush both proved negative in my efforts to get these damned spots off of the glass!
What they were I have no idea, would super glue splashes appear twelve floors up for no reason? Is it birds poo residue? Whatever they are, I had to give up. Peed-off about my nequient attempts! Grumph!
0445hrs: Back to the Porcelain Throne again. Messy session. Bleeding again, Huh!
Frustrated, I got the computer going and started to finalise the Friday diary. This took a good while due to Shaking Shaun taking over from Dizzy Dennis who had, (I’m glad to say) parted company with me.
Started this one going to this point.
0930hrs: Spent hours and hours arranging the next INR log in Excel, and the Virgin Internet connection went done and lost the lot. Had to start again! Tsk! Got it up to date and the n went on CorelDraw to get some graphics done ready to use later on the TFZer graphics. Also, some graphics to use as headers for the diary pages.
Got carried away with this a bit, and it was 1430hrs when I had to finish, due to laziness and tiredness.
Had a wee-wee, then checked the Emails, in the hope of finding one from the Clinic amongst the others. None there. Responded to the others. Then did some WordPress reading. Did a Food order online.
The day is going so quickly, 1625hrs now.
Got the food ready, with the intention of settling and watching the Women’s European Championship Quarter Final match, Netherlands v Sweden, and then switching channels to enjoy the Denmark v Germany games with the prospect of the France v England match to come on Sunday.
The match was a fantastic demonstration of Women’s Football at its best. I think that the Netherlands deserved to win, yet if chances were taken by the Swedish, it could have been a different result, Great match.
I turned over channels to be greatly disappointed that the torrential rains have cancelled the Germany v Denmark game.
I did enjoy listening to the commentators, who at this time did not know if the match would go ahead or not, as they had the teams out Twice, to warm up in the floods! The look on the faces of them as they did their best to think of something to say. said it all. Hehe!
The high-tech method of using queegy sponge mops to move the rain from one area to another was fascinating to watch. Hehe!
The rematch is for 1100hrs tomorrow to be followed by the England France game!
No chance of getting any kip until gone midnight. Why I do not know, but the mind seemed over-active, pondering over all sorts of things past and present?

watched the Denmark vs Sweden match too – great game!
Certainly agree wiv you there, Dunc.
1-1 with Germany and Denmark as I comment. Good match up to now, not as good as the Netherlands one.
England v France tonight.
I must make the effort not to nod-off at half time! Hehe!
I wonder if those black spots are related to construction & high winds, could explain their seemingly impervious nature <3
Oh, impervious! I like that word, not used it for years. I must sneak it in my diary somewhere, thanks, gal. Hehe!
I and others think you are spot on Corin. Andy thinks they may be wind-borne tar or something similar. Suggested I try nail-polish-remover.
Sandie suggested trying a razor scraper.
I’ll try both when I can get out again and get some.
Lousy night last night, the worst since I’ve been in the flat. Yet an hour or so after getting up, I feel so much better, now?
I saw a necklace in the charity shop window the other day, gold colour with green gems in it, thought of you, it was beautiful. When I go into Sherwood again, I’ll take the camera and try to get a shot of it. Delicate (if that’s the word) looking, twinkling green gems. Not the real thing at that price, (£9)? But attractive to look at.
TTFN and have a great glorious grand day! XXX
Those items might just do the trick 😉 & thank you, I very much enjoy window shopping 😀
Maybe some alien slime or ghost residue was left on your window. Watching field squeegees would be more interesting to me than watching the game. I don’t have the patients to watch sports. Maybe it’s not so much the sports, I just don’t have the patience to watch anything on TV. Went to a great choral concert today with 120 voices and orchestra performing Beethoven’s Mass in C Major, Op. 86. The church had a half a dozen screens hanging from the ceiling in the sanctuary, and they put the words translated into English on the screens while the chorus and orchestra performed. The music and performance was great, but the screens with the Latin mass translated into English was awful. I don’t know why people who put on these performances figure people can’t deal with a little Latin. Enough of that rant. Your food looked to be on the rather good side, and making me hungry. Now that I’ve fed the snake, waterboarded the cat, washed the dishes, and put the birds to bed, I’m going to finally make some dinner.
Had some tips on trying to get rid of the alien spots, Tim. Nail varnish remover and a razor scraper, both of which I’ll try.
Naturally, nowadays I don’t do or go to sports. Not that I was any good anyway! The Womens football on TV is refreshing compared to watch (And falling asleep to) the men’s game. Far less fouling, spitting, swearing and diving going on. The English team got through, but they were not the best team.
I am very blessed with music here. We have two channels on the radio dedicated to classical music. BBC Radio Three and Classic Radio. Old programmes of all types on Radio Four Extra with panel games, comedies old news, quiz games etc. Often they have Benny Hill, Tony Hancock, Morecome & Wise on etc. Smooth Radio has some 50’s 60’s music on it. I can get these on the TV through Freeview so can listen through the headphones nowadays. Nice.
Enjoyed that nosh, Sir.
Waterboarded the cat? Hehe!
Hope you enjoyed your fodder, Sir! TTFN
