Wednesday 26th December 2018
00:35hrs. Woke, felt the aches, stiffness, and pains on my overabundant body – then in response to the innards warnings, I was out of the £300 second-hand rickety recliner so speedily and off to the Porcelain Throne. The few paces to the wet room were painful as the limbs and joints grumbled and stung me in revenge for their being activated so suddenly.
No problem with the evacuation, apart from a bit of bleeding from Harolds Haemorrhoids. And, I could see any EIBWBBBs (Evil Ironclad Boll-Weevil black biting beetles) in the place!
Like a limping automaton, I washed and went to the kitchen to get the Health Checks done.
I was amazed to see that the weight had gone down, despite my lack of physical activity?
Took the medications, I remembered to only take the extra Codeine Phosphate. (Smug-Mode-Adopted!) I had an SSWW (Short-Sharp-Wee-wee)
Got on the computer. (I still seemed to be doing things on Auto-pilot?) I got the dismal Christmas Day diary completed and sent off. Went on the WordPress Reader section.
I decided to get the laundry done. Gathered the accoutrements and clothing, and down to the foyer.
As I emptied the tog from bag to machine, guess what I found at the bottom? A rather large EIBWBBB! It was dead, but it was not there last week. Are the tricky things planning another counter-attack? Grumph!
Got the washer going and nipped outside, and took a photographicalisation of this mornings view along Chestnut Walk.
No raining or mist or fog yet? (Apart from in my head, Haha!)
I think the left ankle is improving a little. The knees remain obstinately determined to stay stiff and aching.
I nipped back into the laundry room to check that I set the machine on the correct setting.
I seem to spend an awfully long time grubbling about for things I can’t find, checking if I had or had not done things and in general confusion lately. But, knowing other inmates in the block have similar problems, can help me to cope with my hypomnesia, obliviousness, and absent-mindednesses. Although at the time, being in one’s own benightedness and naivete, can be rewarding in as much as it temporarily frees you of concerns… the bug word, being temporary! When the brain returns to as near as standard it is possible for it to get; then the worrying, fears, perturbations and anxiousness about what has just occurred, and the uncertainty of not being sure, comes back to you, threefold! Just thought I’d mention it, cause it just happened to me! Hehehe!
Back up in the elevator to the flat, I had an SSWW and made a start on this blog.
Thirty-minutes later, back down to move the clothing from washer to the dryer.
Got the togs drying, and cleaned the drum and casing of the washing machine.
Once more, back up to the flat. Had an SSWW. Forty-minutes later on, it was down to the laundry room again to collect the washing. I could hear the other lift ‘voice’ saying ‘Doors Opening’ as I travelled down.
Both washers were now going. The first one showed only a blanket of soap suds, there was that much in the drum.
Folded the clothes into the bag, cleaned out the filter using the newly supplied by some kind tenant, toothbrush, and wiped the drum.
Up for the last time and put the togs away, and had an SSWW.
Made a brew, and took another painkiller, as I now had a cracking headache join in with the stiff, painful joints in the knees ankles and wrists, to make my day even worse! Tsk!
05:00hrs. Some naughty inmate has just used the waste chute! I think, anyway. Unless it was someone above me accidentally making a noise?
I think I’ll make a bit of brekkie now. I’ll go see what is available, back in a bit.
Got it done. Mini pork pie, chip sticks tomatoes and mushrooms. Tucked into it while watching some car clips on YouTube.
Went on CorelDraw to get some page top header graphics done.
Sister Jane rang up. Nice chinwagging session. The bonus being I now know I am too heavy and must lose weight, I have to stop forgetting things and… now, what was the other things she said? Erm… Ah, yes, the paperwork for the hospital! I made a brew and sorted the paperwork and put it in the jacket pocket for the Thursday morning’s blood test, with a note not to forget to collect the prescriptions from the chemist.
Checked the slow-cooker with its mushrooms and parsnips coming along nicely.
Back on CorelDrawing. Weariness sent me back to the £300 second-hand recliner for a little nap… Hehehe, Little Nap?
I woke up eight hours later…
