Italian: Mercoledì 21 Giugno 2017
0400hrs: Stirred thinking of the dreams and fell off to sleep again.
0455hrs: Stirred again and battled with the £300 second-hand recliner to get free of it and to the Porcelain Throne – Success again! Nowhere near as painful this time. It would seem that Constipation Konrad is weakening. A fair bit of bleeding made Haemorrhoid Harold unhappy. (Try saying that quickly when you’ve had a few jars. Hehe!) Cleaned things up and got the kettle on. Did the health Checks. “Sys: 154, Dia: 72, Pulse: 76, Temp: 34.6, Weight 14.71” Pondered on whether or not to take another Senna with the morning medications? Decided not to, for fear of encouraging any return visit from Diarrhoea Derek. I just may regret this decision?
Knowing I would be out for an extended time visiting Sister Jane today, I had a go at WordPressing, Email checking and Facebooking, before it was time to get the ablutions done.
That took some time, that did.
Better get sorted, and the ablutions tended too then.
All prepared and off to the bus stop at the end of the road. Jolly good Gossip at the bus stop. Loved listening to what the other tenants were going on about this morning. The mayhem of the building preparation work and upsetting of their system and plans seemed to be the most popular subject. Both Bills were there, Bill (William on Sundays) and Welsh Bill.
Got into town, dropped off the bus on Upper Parliament Street, near the Wilko Store and walked along the road to the West Bridgford bus stop.
Hectic today, the roads were.
Buses to left, buses to the right, behind and in front. Hehe!
Sat waiting for the bus to set off and one of the tenants of the flats, Brenda I think her name is (Maybe, perhaps?), sat next to me, which was a pleasant surprise and afforded me the opportunity for a great chinwag and ogle. Lovely gal she is. Turned out she was also on her way to visit her Sister and only a few streets away from my Jane’s home.
I got off of the bus the stop after Brenda and made my way to Cyril Road. (Left)
Jane was all ready for my call.
The two pussies Fooey and Arthur were not to be seen. A good nattering session took place.
Pete came down and made me a mug of tea. Memories spoke of. Had a look at Pete’s laptop to see if I could help with his problem. Spent a while, but with no luck. In the end, I photographed some screen shots and will have a look on the web later to see if I can sort it out for him.
Found Arthur, asleep in the bushes in the garden, in readiness to wake and kill some birds. Nice camouflage for a grey cat, bless him. (See photo below, bottom left)
Fussed Fooey, my favourite old pussy. Jane & Pete posed for me with Fooey and Jane took a photograph of me as I fed him some of the cat food he loves so. It is in liquid form, I always take some for him. And they did not help me get back up off the floor afterwards either! Hehehe!
Sister and brother-in-law both looked fit and healthy. Gave them their nibbles and treats. Farewells, and I was soon off to catch the bus. Changed my mind when I just missed one and decided to walk into Central Avenue and have a look in the Iceland store for some bread to take home with me.
Flatbread, cheesy rolls and tried a pack of some Pitta Bread for the first time. Oh, and a minced beef slice.
The bus to town was packed solid with passengers. Should be carrying so many people standing? I did manage to get a seat mind.
Got to town and walked to the Slab Square. Taking a picture of Clinton Street as I passed on my way there.
Busy as it usually is today, but something in the air… hard to describe but I’ll do me best.
A sense of apprehension, something about to take place that would be unwanted, not liked. Odd feeling?
Walked to the top of Queen Street on Upper Parliament Street, and took these photographicalisations of an old pub. It had just been opened again. I recall it has had many different names over the years of failed success seeking from the landlords. Sad.
Walked around and down King Street then up Queen St, to the L9 bus stop at the top of the hill.
En route, Bill (William on Sundays) got on the bus and we had a comical little gossip as I am sure neither of us could hear what the other was saying. Haha!
Back at Winwood Flats, I met Jenny and Frank in the foyer and nattered for a while.
Unlocked the door and straight in the wetroom for a wee-wee.
Put the food away and potato crispies into the oven cooking.
Had a wee-wee.
Downloaded the photographs to add later.
Updated this in a draft, notes words as reminders so when I complete it in the morning, I could remember it easier. Too tired to do it now.
Had a wee-wee.
Thursday Morning Update:
Got the meal done and consumed.
Had a wee-wee.
Medications were taken, Health checks were done and got settled to watch some Heartbeat DVD episodes.
Typically, when I want to get to sleep, I couldn’t. As a rule, as soon as I start yo view the TV or a DVD, I fall asleep, but not this time. The mind racing away again, about all sorts of subjects. The Grenfell disaster, Brexit, the Amazon deliveries, the hearing aids, the mistakes and foolish decisions I’ve taken over the years… on and on! I can’t remember much of the Heartbeat DVD I had on.
Had a wee-wee.
Eventually, I managed to nod off, late, very late it was. Tsk!
