Inchcock Today: Diary Tuesday 29th March
05:35hrs: Woke to pea-souper fog.
I dragged my not-slept-much body from the clutches of the second-hand, overwhelmingly-sickeningly beige coloured, £300, c1968, tatty, uncomfortable, wobbly-recliner. Then went to make a brew of J Sainsbury Extra Strong tea and drank it pretty quickly cause the need for the Porcelain Throne arrived.
So, off to the wet room come WC I went. And the evacuation operation was positively under the influence of Constipation Conrad!
So, out came the crossword book. As I awaited some movement from the rear end, I studied the clues, determined to do better than yesterday’s solution-finding of only two! There was no rush, so I looked at the options for a good ten minutes. Then the activity started… and stopped a minute later – solidly refusing to recommence again! Which gave me another ten minutes or so of puzzle-solving. Well, that’s not strictly true… I didn’t get one answer! But I persevered, with an unnatural desire to succeed.
As you can see in the second photo, I made no, zilch progress. Which was annoying. Haha!
I went back to the kitchen and sorted out the spring water bottles. Opened the fridge door to find that I’d already done them last night. Dementia Doreen again!
The wee-weeing started and was pretty persistent again throughout the day. I made a brew and got the computer to update Monday’s blog.
Carer Richard arrived. He was looking a little better than yesterday; bless him. We had a good nattering session; things of old we had in common were the theme. I could see he was ready for his bed and appreciated the chinwag but cut it short to let him get home to his medicines and, above all, bed. Bade him farewell, and he took the waste bags to the chute for me. Hope he’s not coming down with anything. He’s got enough already.
By the time I got around to doing this post, I could see clearly the writing on the reminder pad – Consip victory! I’ve not got the foggiest of what it meant! Sad, innit? Hahaha!
I got on the computer again, finished updating, and sent the blog to WordPress.
This morning, jolly good figures from the sphygmomanometer, even though it was nearly midday by now. Gosh, the day is flashing by! Even the body temperature had risen again… bot by a lot, but that’s two days on the up. Things might be getting better? No, I am a fool!
I spent the next four hours on the computer, making mayhaps my biggest cock-up of the year!
I’d started doing a Local News Snippets one for tomorrow! Pillock! And had not finished and posted the Monday one yet!
Then, after updating and sending off the Monday post to WordPress…
Instead of starting this blog, I began doing an Ode blog!!! Gawd or Mighty, I’m Going Potty!
The mind was so puddled. I stopped and went to make a brew of Glengettie tea.
Filled the kettle but did not turn on the heat!!! Argh!
I took these two photographs of the evening sky. There is no sunsetting to speak of, but I still found them beautiful, Mother Nature at her finest. I appreciate There’s something special about the skies, not as much as a good natter. Hehe!
I’d made a start on two blogs now! Neither one finished. And had to get this one started then! Dumbo!
I had a call from Meridian saying the evening carer would be late. They already were. I told them no bother, not to worry. Which was true!
I put some potatoes in the oven and added a pastie later, peas in the pan.
I got on with starting this blog. The evening carer arrived later, apologising. But there was no need; I appreciated that she was in a rush but still found time for a bit of chinwag. 💙
I made some progress with this blog, but it was so late, and tiredness overcame me and my hunger.
I’ll have to finish this in the morning. I’ll get the jammies on and nosh served up now. TTFN.
Wednesday morning update:
I was up until gone midnight again.
Made a well-overcooked meal. But it went down nicely, all the same, despite fighting to keep awake while eating it. Tsk!
The darned Thought-Storms raged again when I washed the pots and got into the c1968 second-hand, E-plan recliner.
