Friday 22nd September
0425hrs: After many wake-ups and nodding back off again, I rose from the £300 second-hand recliner and off to visit the Porcelain Throne. Far less messy this morning, glad to say.
Made a mug of tea took the medications and did the Health Checks. The weight had gone down a bit. (He says smugly, Hehe!)
14.84 St. Mind you, I have not been eating so much, what with the Suzie incisor teeth situation.
Not bad again the ailments, apart from the tooth and Hernia Harry, the day has started very well indeed. (Big mouth?)
A pleasant sight this morning, a chimney, out of all those in view, and there are hundreds of them, actually being used to heat the house! Most rare nowadays, a solid fuel fire.
The distant scene, looked to me, with the mist and all, that the sea and coastline, that could be seen through the fog.
Got onto the computer and finalised the Thursday diary and got it posted off. Then checked the Emails.
A touch of guilt came over me as I went to make another cuppa, and I saw the state of the kitchen floor.
No sooner had I swept it and started to mop it up, Craig Cramps attacked the left hand and both set of fingers.
Never mind, I rubbed in some of the Phorpain Gel to ease the fingers. Dare not take an extra Codeine cause I’m using some to deaden the Incisor Suzie Teggies, already.
A bash on Facebooking, and WordPress reading for a couple of hours.
During the Facebooking, someone asked what they will do with the old Police Stations site on High Street, in Arnold behind the Asda store.
I looked it up on the web.
Went off for a wee-wee.
Stubbed my toe and swore.
Returned and discovered that it is to be a Petrol Station with three pumps, six individual service accesses.
I found the planning permission on the Gedling Borough Council pages, and also edited the Google page which showed that the Police Station was still there and working. Got an email back from Google thanking me. Nice that!
Did the Health Checks and took the medications.
Onto CorelDraw to do TFZer graphics. Hours later, I’d got it finished.
Drained now, got the nosh going, rinsed and suddenly the flipping tooth started off for no apparent reason as far as I could see.
I was careful about what I prepared tonight. Instant potatoes, made thinner than I usually would mash them, they were soft. The tinned BBQ mackerel I knew should be safe, cause it has no bones or hard bits in it normally. The surimi fish sticks not hard at all, the garden peas were safe, and the fish sticks I cut up into tiny pieces before I put them into my mouth.
All this effort and it was still a pain, literally, to eat the meal. But, I downed all of it, slowly. Had the evening medications along with it, followed by the lemon fool and meringue mousse.
Settled to watch a film on the box. I reckon I must have seen it with fifteen nod-offs. When I woke after the last one, I could not change the volume at all? I tried all the usual things, going into the options thingy and all that.
Fell asleep again, and woke with the teeth not half giving me some bother. Got up and took an extra pain-killer and rubbed some Phorpain gel in the hands that were stiffening and cramping a bit. As I got back into the £300 second-hand recliner, it dawned on me, that I had not checked the plug connection on the headphones to the TV set. So I did – Yes, it had come lose. Tsk!
By the time I was about to nod-off, the nocivity from the teggies had started to ease a bit. Phew!

The photo with the clouds looking like the coastline is phenomenal. All the photos are great. I’ve been on vacation, sort of, this week, but have been having to deal with so many things that turned into legal battles, I haven’t had time to comment on blogs. We’ve won the first big battle. The question we ask is why does everything have to be a fight these days? Is it simply because Trump has upset the world order?
Thanks, Tim. I wish I could have shared it more with someone somewhere, I thought the view was good and different, and imagine that it will never be seen again with that rolling fog helping to produce it.
I realise you’ve been on vacation Sir, from your posting of the great photos of hotel and region.
Cheers me learn you have won the first big battle.
Trump’s fault? Poor devil! Hehehe!
More battles on multiple fronts on Monday.
Best of luck, Sir!
Sure wish they could see you sooner about that tooth, it’s more than a quality of life issue, everyone has to be able to eat <3
