2320hrs: Early wake-up time, I know. But I had a funny turn yesterday and fell asleep really early. Yet on waking-up, Dizzy Dennis, Shaking Shaun, and Duodenal Donald had all stopped giving me hassle! (Fair enough, Duodenal Donald returned with his stabbing pain an hour or so later, Humph!) The brain seemed to become active sooner as well, no blague nonsense rumbling around in there either. (I wasn’t sure if I should be happy about this or not?)
As I tackled the exiting of my torso with the tremendously bulbous stomach attached, from the £300 second-hand recliner, I spotted signs of my having committed some nocturnal nibbling! The contents of the pot of potato thins and cheeselets had decreased dramatically! Eizel! The summoning from the innards to use the Porcelain Throne arrive.
The evacuation was a decent one.
I spotted around ten dead Evil ironclad Boll-Weevil black biting beetles, one alive, a big un as well! So got the can of spray and squirted the wet room, emptied the spray, so I got another to investigate the spare room. About fifteen Weevils on the unwanted light and view-blocking new window ledge, all around the little holes in the sealant, all dead. Into the kitchen. Only about ten Weevil bodies found in there, none alive and no LadyBugs today.
Did the Health Checks and tool the medications. Results were not good, mind.
I set about creating a post with all the sky pictures from yesterday and adding writing pose and some humorous drivel.
A second call to the Throne arrived. Longer session t his one, I got a couple of pages of the book read.
Back to the computer, and concentrated on the Picture/funny Poem blog.
Two hours or so later, a third demand for the Porcelain Throne arrived. Evacuation same as the last one.
Back to the blog making. Eventually, I got it finished and posted off. Phew, a long job that one was!
Then I had to update and finish yesterday’s blog.
Made a brew and then… Back to the Porcelain Throne for the fourth time! Getting worried about this, now. Where is it coming from? Hehe!
Went on the WordPress Reader section, then finished off the diary and posted it off.
Next, on to the TFZer Facebook to add photographs to the albums.
I went on the YouTube thingy while I waited for it to be late enough to use the noisy shower to do my ablutions.
Had a spray around with the ‘Sanmex Bug Killer. Then went to get the ablutions sorted out.
Dang and botherations! I needed a fifth session on the throne! Oh dearie me! Not runny either?
Several Weevils had appeared again, so I collected to bodies up.
Teggies and shaving were done, I was about to get into the shower and what came over the air-waves on the Radio Nottingham News…
There had been stabbings and attempted murder! All with a short distance of the Nottingham Arboretum!
- Police in Nottingham are investigating after two separate stabbings in the city in the space of fewer than six hours.
Detectives investigating the first stabbing in Nottingham yesterday have found a black car believed to have been used in the attack. Suspected attempted murder.
- A man in his twenties suffered life-threatening injuries behind flats near North Sherwood Street at about 14:00.
Two arrests have been made in connection with the second stabbing in nearby Burns Street, Arboretum, at around 7.30pm.
Residents living in the Arboretum area have been left terrified and on edge after two stabbings in a matter of hours.
Blimey, that is close to where I was hobbling around on Monday, too! Oy Gevalt!
Visitors and tourists are all welcomed to Nottingham.
I took two black bags to the waste chute on the way out.

I had a quick natter with Pint-Puller and Perambulator Paulius and another chap. I forgot to ask his name.
Took a shot of Winchester Court and part of the New Build. The lads were up on the hoists grafting away.
I got to the Nottingham City Homes, Winwood Heights, Generaloberstesses Wardens Temporary HQ, WC, Willmott-Dixon workers breakfast and tea-break room, Sarcasm & Insult distribution area, Tenants Socialisationalistic Area, Telling Inchcock off Zone, Crockery and pottery to be stolen from, and residents porta-cabin.
I had a natter with Oberfeldwebeless Deana and Stabsfeldwebeless Julie and Hauptbereitschaftsleiteress Lynne. Ah, I nearly forgot, I am barred by the Nottingham City Homes Management, from mentioning anything taking place between Nottingham City Homes agents, representatives or employees and myself. Suffice to say we spoke.
A new bit of Nottinghamian Street Art was spotted, towards the end of Chestnut Walk.
Apparently, the inspection pit and had been destroyed by vehicles, most likely wagons or lorries parking up on the grass verge.
Not that poor devils have much choice in the matter, like!
Still, it’ll come in use, as somewhere for folks to throw their half-eaten fooder and bottles down into. At least somebody has put a damaged piece of barrier over it for us old fogies. So, we can trip over it, as opposed to falling down the hole. Which I think is prospectively the better choice, injury-wise? I thank you!
I pressed on down Winchester Street Hill.
Pleased to report that part of the footpath was accessible this morning, mind you, some of the workers, merchants, and tradespeople had not yet arrived on site. Those that had parked had left me with up to three foot of pavement width to walk on, as opposed to Monday’s three-inches, so things were improving.
The expressions the Sherwoodite’s faces depicted that a mood of Dysphoria was being shared around by all and sundry.
I went into the shop and grabbed two of the orange and vanilla croissants. They had no lemon that I could see. But being on offer, I still bought two. I want to be able to treat Frank when he gets back off of holiday, I’d already got a treat in the spare room for Jenny. Oh, and Pennies Birthday present too. I got a sliced loaf, some Sopocka and a tin of beef and peas as well.
I hobbled back to Winchester Street. As I turned the corner, with the feet aching like crazy, I noticed that I had just missed two buses, the L9 and the 40. As they both past me by, it dawned on me that it didn’t matter really, for two reasons.
- One: It was too early for me to use my free pensioner pass anyway!
- Two: I was quite happy to suffer Anne Gyna, the accompanying shortage of breath and Arthur Itis giving me stick as I struggled up the hill. Cause the exercise would be good for the metal-ticker and Hippy Hilda. Bloody painful, but therapeutic. Hehehe!
As I got about half-way up the hill, I had to stop to catch my breath. Anne Gyna was giving me bother.
But, it was not all gloom. For the sunshine got through straight ahead of me before the first bend in the road. I didn’t think that the photo on the left would come out good at all, but as you see, it wasn’t too bad an effort.
I then turned to my left, to take a long distance snap, of the top of both blocks of flats, up Cavendish Vale. But the picture did not show up on the viewer? I’m confused about what I did wrong here?
So, I took this shot of Winchester Street instead.
I tackled the last stretch up the hill, and within a minute of getting on the flat on Chestnut Walk, Anne Gyna eased off. Even Hippy Hilda was not so bad now.
I only saw one resident on the walk along to the flats. I think the workers might have been on their lunch break.
Up the elevator to the flat, and had a wee-wee. As I did, I thought I felt a little gurgling from the lower regions, surely not a sixth Porcelain Throne session brewing up, I thought. What’s going on here?
I got the fodder from the bag, put the Sopocka cooked pork in the fridge. Sarnies and sliced potatoes with tomatoes methinks later on.
I want to stay awake and get some graphics prep work done if I can. It will depend on when the sudden Weariness and tiredness dawns on me. Humph!
Made a brew and did the Health Checks and took the medications… then…
It arrived. Incredible! The sixth visit to the Porcelain Throne! Not loose or anything, getting fed-up with this though.
Washed up well, and back to the computer to update this blog as far as here!
Then added some photographs to the TFZer Facebook.
Got the nosh sorted and served. And very nice it was too!
Buttered fresh bread, tomatoes, sliced seasoned potatoes, pickled gherkins, smoked mackerel in veg sauce, a few potato thins and a lemon mousse to follow.
Gave this effort a 9.2/10 Flavour-Rating.
Did the last Health Checks and took the medications.
The emptied plate and tray on the chair and I drifted off with the TV on, within minutes!
