23:20hrs: I was up and out of the dangerously clunking when in motion £300 second-hand recliner and having a wee-wee; all within two minutes or so of waking! And with no pain or injuries as well! I impressed myself.

WD 51.0.0 The wee-wee was of the SWDWW (Short-weak-dribbling-wee-wee) variety. It took longer to perform though, cause not knowing if the pathetically weak dripping had finished or not, it needed many pre-checks, and that is not easy when things are hidden by a massive, even more-bloated than usual overhanging kishka that blots out your view, I can tell yer! And, I could sense things splanchnic-wise, were brewing up for a probable surprise for me later. Tsk!

I got the kettle on, and just as the last two mornings, had to divert to the wet room for Porcelain Throne duty. The evacuation went like this: Push, phwert, splatter, splash and all done! I must have broken my own speed-record with this sloppy, messy job!

WD 51.0.0 But, the Little Inchy fungal lesion had been bleeding badly overnight again, that need the most attention, cleaning and medicating. A few silent Arghs, Winches and Naughty words later, I’d completed the medicationalisationing. Hehe!

2Tue05Back to the kitchen, this time spotting the moon outside, that made the view pretty to me. So, I got the old Sony camera (the new Lumix is now getting grey spots on every photo I try to take, Grumph!), and made this photograph.

I can maybe use this one as a background for future morning thoughts odes.

I made a start on the Health Checks.

2Tue04

2Tue03The BP seemed to be keeping high lately.

But, the pulse has steadied down a smidge at last.

WD 51.0.0 When I came to taking the medications, it became apparent that I had missed taking last night’s dosages. Schlemiel! So I just took the Warfarin and Simvastatin, and I will take the morning med’s later, to avoid repetition of the same tablets.

After I had got the computer on and started to update the Monday post, I found myself singing under my breath to myself. So confusing this, especially when one cannot think of any reason why this cheerfulness should suddenly appear? Haha!

I took me around four hours to get the diary finished, with so many photographs to sort out.

I made another brew of tea and took the morning medications.

I put some of the photographs on Pinterest. Perused the WP reader. Then went on Facebooking, a mammoth task as I had not been keeping things up to date on it. All things being interrupted occasionally by SWDWWs.

Getting late on now, I’ll get some breakfast methinks.

2Tue06WD 51.0.0 The damaged old pins (legs) felt a touch sore as I investigated them. One with more fluid than the other again. The new welts, papsules, growths whatever they are, seemed to be a lot less inflamed. The reddening remained bright.

Bin bags made up and readied things to go out. Got the ablutions tended to.

WD 51.0.0 Unfortunately for me, I’d left the hot water tap running in the kitchen sink while I had the shower! Luckily for me, I had had the shave first, before the water ran cold. What a Nebekh I am!

2Tue07Took a snap of Willmott Dixon’s Perambulator Paulius as I passed by.

Off to the Nottingham City Homes, Winwood Heights, Hauptbereitschaftsleiteress Warden’s Temporary HQ. Holding cells. Sarcasm & Insult distribution area. Tenants Socialisationistical Meeting Shed. Telling Inchcock off Zone. Where things like crockery and pottery get stolen from. Interrogation cell, rumourmongering Clinic, and somewhere to rest while waiting for the bus, Portakabin. Where, I listened to some good innuendos, threats, poo-pooing and laughter in the ensuing chinwags. Penny (Her throat still sore and voice creaking, bless her), Deana, Doreen, Cyndy, Brenda, Roy, and others all seemed in good form this Tuesday morn.

2Tue09Out to catch the L9 bus to Daybrook and the Sainsbury store in search of the Marmite biscuits. I chatted with Caroline from the care home at the end of Chestnut Walk on the way. She told me of her holiday she’d just got back from.

Dropped off of the bus right outside the Sainsbury store, and had a good wander 2Tue08around. I inquired of a bloke if they had any of the Marmite biscuits on sale. After he kindly had a look around without finding any on the shelves, he said, no. I got to the self-serve tills with, Lemon Drizzle biscuits, scratchings for the nibble box, Viennese whirls, and a Warburton’s sliced 2Tue10milk roll loaf.

Then a little hobble into Arnold.

Where I called at the Chamber’s Butchers to check-out if they had any of their home-cooked smoked sliced belly slices. Which they did, and looked nice and fresh. So I bought a few slices. Not cheap, but excellent flavour!

2Tue10aGot into the Asda store and had a good wander around in search of bargains.

I ended up buying some of the seasoned sliced potatoes, a leek, a carrot, parsnip and the most expensive tray of diced lamb I’ve ever bought in my life. £4, I say, £4! For just a little bit of lamb bits! But it did look so good. I decided to make a lamb stew for today’s nosh. Hence, the 2Tue11vegetables purchased. Self-indulgence can be very warming to the soul, but annoying to the bank manager! (I might use this on the thought of the day graphicalisation for tomorrow?) Hehe!

I made my way up to the bus stop shelter, and a chap from Winchester Court arrived. We had a 2Tue12anatter, he’d just been to Asda as well.

The bus arrived and we on our way home.

As we passed by one of the Nottingham City Hospital’s car parks, I tried to take a shot of it through the bus window, to show how big and 2Tue12bfull it was. But I was too low down to show it how it was.

WD 51.0.0 As the bus was waiting to get over the Ring Road island and I took this picture of the traffic, I felt that dreaded warm-wet sensation from Little inchies fungal lesion area. Oh dearie me! So glad I wear the protection pants at times like this! The brain wasn’t concentrating one much apart from getting back and 2Tue12csorting things out, now.

But I did manage to take this busy photograph of the Willmott Dixon men on Chestnut Walk when I got of off the bus and rushed with all manageable haste, and risking life and limb back to the apartment.

I feel sure I chatted with Doreen on the way back, leaving her to take a rest in the lobby, bless her.

WD 51.0.0 As I got inside, a wee-wee was needed as well. Oh, what a state I was in. Tsk! Blood all over the pants and legs… no, I won’t go into any other details. I’ll just mention that it was a messy and painful job wee-weeing, cleaning up and medicationalisationing things. Humph!

Got the Health Checks and medications sorted. Put the fodder away. Had another wee-wee and checked the emails in case the surgery had changed anything else appointment-wise.

2Tue12dI got the lamb stew prepared and on the boil then simmering. Plenty of fresh vegetables with it today. Turnip, parsnip, leeks, tomatoes, carrot and a small tin of marrowfat peas went into the pan with the lean lamb chunks. Seasoned with a drop of distilled vinegar, lamb and mint gravy granules and some tomato passata. A sprinkle of basil added as an afterthought.

I decided to simmer this for two hours on low 2Tue12eheat. Of course, this meant the need for some plan of action to be formulated and actioned, on how not to fall asleep! I reckon all the ingredients must have cost me around £6, which is a lot for a bowl of stew.

I took this shot from the unwanted kitchen window. But I can’t understand what the bottom right things can be? Back to the plan…

I ended up setting the timer (Not that I can hear it), but I might see it if I left in near the recliner where I settled to watch two episodes of the A-team, while the stew cooked. Also, I wrote a reminder note in big letters and hung it over the computer screen. Then, managing not to nod off at all (Smug-Mode-Adopted!). On each commercial break, I checked on and stirred the gastronomic concoction in the saucepan. A rather cunning plan that worked and kept me awake, I might add! Super-Smug-Mode-Embraced, Hehehe!

2Tue12fThe bowl of stew did not look very special or attractive. Not culinarily artistic. And the washing things up afterwards took an aeon!

However, every scrap of juice and content was devoured, along with the assistance of some milk roll bread. Lipsmackingly flavoursome it was too!

A Taste-Rating of 9.2/10!

I washed the bits and started to watch Boon on the box. But I fell asleep.

WD 51.0.0 Later, I was woken by the flashing light on the landline. I struggled, groped and fought my way out of the £300 second-hand Circa 1968 recliner, an got to answer the phone in time. It was a lady from the Anticoagulation Haemostasis Deep vein Arterial Thrombosis Clinic at the Queens Medical Centre. Being only half awake at the time, I’m not sure if I had to remember anything of the conversation. I know they were worried about my INR Warfarin level not being under control. I believe they questioned me about the medication taking time, my sleeping times and about the kidney pains. There was something about the doctor appointment, but the memory is confused about that part.

Took me hours to get back to sleep.

  1. So the wee wees have gone basketball on you dribbling about? The gray spot on the Lumix looks like something on or in the lens, but I can’t say for sure. I’d be surprised if it’s on the sensor, but since you live in the crossroads of the twilight zone and a tear in the fabric of the space/time continuum anything is possible. A good, simple meal is worth a lot of it’s tasty.

    • Along with the Porcelain Throne evacuations, the wee-wees remain variable and changeable. Hahaha!
      I keep using my Lenspen on the lens. It used to clear the problem but it always came back. Now, it seems to make no difference. ‘Sulk-Mode-Adopted!’ So, the old Sont Cyber-Shot is in use again. But it is so slow and had no lens viewer.
      Doctors later this morning, fingers-crossed I ask the right questions. I’ve made a list of things to tell her. Her first day back from her holiday as well, and I am her first patient. Don’t know if that’s good or bad? Then the INR blood test.
      I’m tired and weary and I’ve only been up for three hours?
      TTFN Sir.
