Croatian: Petak, 22. veljače 2019
00:30hrs. I woke, remembering a bit of a dream. I was underground in the dark tunnel and walking towards the exit door, which bore a neon sign above it; “Freedom beyond – Have your bus pass ready!” Suddenly, I realised I did not want to escape anymore. That’s it really, all I can recall, and my walking back into the darkness?
Getting out of the £300 c.1968, second-hand rickety recliner was a little more difficult this morning. Due to the pain from where I banged my right leg against the corner of the chair arm yesterday, at the Social Hour.
The first of the day’s wee-wees arrived. The Emergency Grey Bin was utilised. It was an SNSWW (Short-No-Sensation-Wee-wee), as was the one I had to take just five minutes later?
Off I went to get the Health Checks done.
The results looked fair enough to me.
Not the weight of course. The pulse has been high all week.
Off to the wet room for another wee-wee, this time of the SSPWW (Short-Sharp-Painful-Wee-wee) variety. Tsk!
While wee-weeing, I had to change tack to cope with the sudden demand for a Porcelain Throne evacuation that arrived! Messy!
The legs were checked, only a slight bruise where I banged the leg, but masses of thick spider-veins had appeared.
The famously distorted right knee had changed its shape again. I can see no faces in it this morning. The wound is looking far less like that of a saprogenous type.
More like a lunar landscape perhaps? Hehehe! Oh, off to the grey bucket again.
I washed and went to the kitchen to make a mug of tea.
I tried to do a panoramic shot of the view from the unwanted light and view-blocking new window.
But, I failed on around eight tries to get it to record one on this old Sony camera. I was unable to hold the thing steady enough to take the panoramic shot. So, I made an ordinary one of the early morning lights of Nottingham.
I got on the computer and made a start on this blog.
Had to have another wee-wee. They seem to have settled back into the SSPWW (Short-Sharp-Painful-Wee-wee) style, now.
At 02:30hrs, I heard a dull bang from somewhere. Five minutes later, I heard a louder thud? I hope someone has not fallen over, I’ll put the hearing aids in, so I can listen in case I hear knocking again and try to locate where it is coming from. All I can discern is that it came from above my flat. Fingers crossed there is no one in trouble.
02:45hrs. I got this post caught up with to here, then went onto updating the Thursday Post. This will take a while.
05:45hrs. Blimey, it did ages as well! Along with nine SSPWWs. I got it posted off, then went on the WP reader section.
06:00hrs. Went onto Facebook, to catch up with the TFZers and photo albums. This took a while as well. Plus, three SSPWWs.
0720hrs: Brekkers time now. I’ll have the sarnies I couldn’t eat last night, with marmite crisps and a mug of tea and watch a YouTube clip or two. Back soon.
As soon as I stood up, the body seemed to come to life: I needed a wee-wee, the wind began spontaneous emissions of wind from the rear end, the hiccups started and the worms in the leg wound became active! Hehehe! Don’t know why I’m laughing? Had to empty the Emergency Grey Plastic Bin before I could use it. Tsk!
08:55hrs: Guess who fell asleep in the computer chair, only waking up as started to fall off of it? What a Plonka!
09:05hrs: I set about creating some diary page graphics and then made-up some drafts.
11:55hrs: I’d got a few done. Feeling tired already. Then I made a start on the drafts done and saved to file. Accompanied by four SPWWs.
12:45hrs, a lot scraping and tapping noises coming from above. I expect it might be from either the Sprinker work or BJ doing his model making.
I finished the drafts in full. But, I only managed to get ten done in total before I felt so drained and tired. Poor old thing!
15:00hrs. I’ve had it now, drained.
Did the health checks then, I got the cooked bacon in the pan with the baked beans. I left them on a low light to keep warm and marinate with the added mustard and BBQ seasoning. Put the chips in the oven.
In between wee-wees, I got the Health Checks sorted.
Served up the meal. I thought at first when I got it on the tray, that I’d made too much for me to eat again. But, not this time, I scoffed the lot!
I took the things to soak them in the sink bowl, and the sky colouring I thought was worth recording.
As I was clicking the button on the camera, it became apparent that I needed the Porcelain Throne yet again – urgently!
Oh, Boy! Trotsky Terence was on good form this time. Talk about messy in the extreme! Perhaps having the seasoned baked beans was a mistake? Hahaha!
I got me settled to watch some TV… Zzzz!
