Inchcock Today Thursday 20th October 2016: First post on the new laptop.


Thursday 20th October 2016

Or, in Esperanto: Ĵaŭdo 20a Oktobro 2016 I think?

0200hrs: Awake and out of the recliner to a WRHD session. Bits of bleeding from the rear, otherwise no hiatus.

Dreams beyond recall, but I know they were many, and not nice.

Took the medications. Tried the laptop and it started, so I risked finishing yesterday’s, and starting this one off.

Sometime today I think the new computer and printer are being delivered and set-up, I hope. This means I’ll have to stay in until they arrive if I recall right (Certainly not assured, mind. Hehe) Around midday?

p1120171The laptop still will not load Facebook?

This is as far as it gets?

Has it been got at by the hacker?

Fed up again now already!

Tried again later, and it did load, but I had to wait ten minutes (No joking!), then when I clicked on photos, it was another five minutes before they loaded on screen! Clicked on an album to put pictures into it, and an hour later it still hadn’t loaded. Gave up trying and turned the whole thing off!

The webs other sites seem to be okay?

More fed-upperer than ever now.

Turned off and decided to do some laundry.

5fri01a0435hrs: Sorted the unclean thingies in the bag, accoutrements added, 20p’s in my pocket and down to the laundry room. It looked very clean this morning in there, and I checked on the filter on the dryer, and that had been cleaned too?

0448hrs: Set the machine on ‘Quick wash’, (30 minutes) and back up to the flat and then updated this blog.

I tried to load Facebook again, but it was in slow motion mode again?

Down at 515hrs, moved the clobber from the washer to dryer, wiped the washer down and read the notice board as I got to the lifts to go back up to the comfy little flatlet I call home. All done for 0530hrs, the dryer indicating it would take 45 minutes – where usually it shows 60 minutes?

Back up the lift. Got the powders and things ready for when needed for the next wash. Did some graphicationalisationing then at 0615hrs, back down again.

0639hrs: Laundry all done and stored away!

Did the ablutions and took the rubbish bags to the chute. Went to the Community Hut and told them what had occurred and I would not be at the Tenant’s Social Hour. Left them some raffle prizes, though.

The PC man called to say he’d be here in twenty minutes, that’s 10.50 hrs. So, down the foyer to wait for him.

Nice chinwag with some lady tenants as they came through. The man arrived at 1215hrs?

Still, he did sort me out despite his boss calling him repeatedly, and I appreciated him setting up the printer for me too. Gave him a tin of Roses Chocolates in appreciation, cause he was here an hour or more. He took away the infected laptop, to send to their specialists who will try to remove files for me that will be guaranteed ‘Bug-Free’ he says. This cost me £90, Humph!

I spent some time toying and trying to get the computer synchronised. The keyboard is so different to the laptop. It is minuscule and the arrow keys in a different layout, a touch screen too. Making no end of errors, Tsk!

What are sticky-Keys please?

The scene seems so large to me, take some getting used to this will. Powerful though I reckon. 

HP Envy 27-p059na 27" Touchscreen All-in-One PCProduct Features:

  • Style: Premium design with powerful processing
  • Windows 10
  • Intel® Core™ i5-6400T Processor
  • RAM: 16 GB / Storage: 2 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon R7 A365

I’m not certain what each thing means, but it cost a lot. Hehe!

Facebook still playing up, and I’m so frustrated about not being able to do any graphics. If the technician can rescue the CorelDraw passwords for me, I might have to get more help on this, cause I’ll have to contact CorelDraw to get it downloaded again. Huh!

Called on Olive. She was in excellent spirits and looking gorgeous!

Searched for a CD drive in the laptop, but couldn’t find one?

The computer will have to wait until tomorrow for me get it sorted, too tired now.Got on with doing the meal. 

5fri3Got on with doing the meal.

Very nice, cheesy potatoes, vegetables, beetroot. ham. egg and sliced an apple with it.

Took the medications and drifted off as soon as I put the TV on.

Inchcock Today Wednesday 19th October 2016: Calamity!


Wednesday 19th October 2016

Trečiadienis 19 Spalis 2016

The lackadaisicalness and weariness from last night had disseminated into the ether, and at 0320hrs I disentangled myself from the £300 second-hand recliner at the third attempt to get it to work and made my way for a WRHD session. All went well, the tiniest bit of blood, but nay bother at all! No need for any Senna this morning.

3wed2Took the medications and made a strong mug of ‘Thompson’s’ tea. Then set about and got the Crock-pot vegetables simmering away, had carrots, peas, mushrooms, red onions and parsnips in it today, seasoned with Bisto vegetable and Oregano seasoning.

I’ve got the Polish potato dumplings to try, not sure how to do them, might drop them in the Crock-pot? Yes, I will: I’ve put nine pieces in with the vegetables, just hope they don’t all break-up and spoil everything?

3wed3Started the laptop up.

I was a little apprehensive about this, after yesterday’s near disaster when I thought I’d lost the use of my precious laptop.

Although she is running a tad slow still, everything is responding as requested.

3wed4Checked the dumplings in the Crock-Pot with the veggies.

They have all floated to the top, not breaking up yet.

Fingers crossed!

WRWW then got on with doing the Diaries updating and got yesterday’s posted.

Checked the contents of the Polish Potato Dumplings: Restored potatoes from potato flakes 74% – Wheat flour – potato starch 10% – salt – potassium sorbate – citric acid – carotenes. May contain Milk, Soya, Barley, Sulphites, Celery, Seaweed, Rye. Does that sound healthy to you, please?

canal1Then I did a graphic to cheer up Sister Jane and sent it off via email.

I enjoy doing the likes of these. And am so happy that I can still do them, despite the time it takes.

Good job I’m retired innit?


Started this one off then. Did the graphics and sorted the photographs from the camera.

Checked the Crock-Pot – Not god news. The dumplings had all crumbled as I feared they might. Plucked what of them I could out of the Crock-Pot and out some sliced tomatoes in instead, and a bit of tomato puree. Shame!

What now? Can’t access Facebook at all!

Disaster, the laptop froze and I had to force close – Got a phone call from an Asian sounding bloke saying he was from TalkTalk, and when I mentioned I was not with them he said they and Virgin are combining to fight virus attacks?

He talked me through doing things on the computer to stabilise it? Asked too many questions or my liking. I was struggling to understand his accent – after three hours on the phone and he remotely changing things on it would not load again. Ask a neighbour to hear for me, but he had to go, as it was taking too long. So, no laptop working! He said he would send a technician to see me. Sending a text first that I must click on Yes on to verify who I was?  He took bank card details the asked me for the amount of money in the account?

I put the phone down and he called again three times.

No text came of course.

I could not find Deana or Julie, olive later told me Deana was off site. Went to look for Julie, but she was busy with getting the meeting  with the builders sorted and I couldn’t get her. I’d wanted her to phone the Bank for me about the possible hack.

3wed7Had to get the bus to town.

Very busy in the City Centre.

Bought a new computer and printer, they are being delivered tomorrow (I hope). Had to get this first, before I went to the bank, as i might not have a card to buy one with for a while.

The bank next to inform of the problem, have to wait 3-4 days for a new card.

To the Police Station to inform them, it was closed down, not a single officer on the streets to ask for the location of the new station.

Came back home, feeling knackered emotionally and physically.

Olive called to see how things went with the bank.

Tried the laptop again and it started?!?! Messages flashing, though, too quick to read them. I’ll ask the man to take it away and check it out? Turned it off to be safe, oh, and Fa3wed5cebook would not open again?

Got the meal done, used the Kiddies Plate.

So tired now.

A WRHD  and then did the washing up of the crockery, saucepans and crock-pot.

3wed6The evening skyline looked rather nice.

Hope things go well tomorrow, I’ll have to cancel the Tenants Meeting, though, with the laptop and printer being delivered.

Sad that.

Hope I can sort the signing into programmes and sorting out the laptop without too much hassle.

Tuesday 18th October 2016: To Bulwell today, using the Bus-Pass of course!


Tuesday 18th October 2016

Terça-feira 18 de Outubro de 2016

Awakened with a start around 0200hrs. Been dreaming something about climbing mountains or hills with stops to climb down and get an ice-cream from a Stop-me-and-buy-one cyclist, who was a different person each time I climbed down. When  I got back up the ice-cream had melted so I went back down again for another? There were a lot more in the dreams, but no details available in my brain.

2tue03Decided that, as I was up so early, I’d get to the laundry room and sort the washing out. Out of the £300 second-hand wobbly recliner chair and a WRWW had to be done. Got the laundry assembled and off down to the foyer to get them started.

Back up to the apartment and brewed a mug of tea. Took the medications, not thinking what time it was, so early, so I’ll take tonight’s doses early too if I remember to, that is.

Got the laptop on, it was running a bit slow?

0345hrs: Down to move the clothes into the dryer machine. Someone had not cleaned out the filter on it again, Naughty!

Back up again, and got CorelDraw and WordPress loaded and made a start on graphics to use and the diaries. The hour soon passed, and it was time to return to the Woodthorpe Court Laundry Room and collect the things. Got them out, cleaned the filter and drum, back up for another WRWW. Sorted the 2tue06laundry things into their departments in the airing cupboard and on the hooks in the hallway. Hall, I say?

28″ wide, dim and some very handily designed Inchock Whoopsiedangleplop Dangers built into it, too. The front entry intercom situated thinkingly next to the Wetroom where, passing it, I frequently hit it with my shoulder and knock it off. The perfectly placed electrical box’s, designed for me to come into contact with around my head area. The shower power box on the right-hand side, flawlessly set at nose height to facilitate a more dangerous type of injuries and damage to spectacles. Bending down in this area can result in damage to one’s rear-end and concurrently cause bruising or bleeding to the head.

Just thought I’d mention it like. Hehe!

When I got back on the laptop, amid using three programmes simultaneously, the laptop froze! I waited a while, but nothing moved, so had to force close the machine. Gave it decent few minutes, then tried to start her up – but nothing happened… depression and disappointment and frustration overcame me at this stage. I turned everything off, went for a WRHD session.

Found out that the new Senna tablets are working well! Phwoar did they just!

Tried again to start the laptop up… very slowly it did start this time. I decided to see how I can turn on the touch-pad, so, while it was working, I did a search on Google and followed the instruction given. But, where they said the Model details would be, was just a Change word that did nothing when clicked on.

However, I  did discover that I had an Acer Intel Pentium(R) CPU N3540 @ 2.16GHz 1.15GHz. Whatever that means, but it looked good?

Slowly the laptop got up her speed, and things seemed to be okay, and are, up to now anyway.

0600hrs: Made another cuppa and the rain came down. hope it clears before I have to go out.

2tue05Emails perused and answered. Sent a photo of the measurements of the TV to Pete as requested.

So he might get an idea of what size would suit me bestest.

I measured the distance from the £300 second-hand recliner chair, it was about 8½ft.

Hand a bash on Facebooking for a while. Made and sent some greetings.

Cup of tea, well, a mug, then got into the wetroom for ablutionalisationing!

Called to see Olive, but no answer, might be her Scrabble Day?

2tue07Went down to the bus stop and noticed that the flowers some tenants had planted near the garages over the road, were still trying to battle through and blossom. Nature is marvellous.

Caught the L9 Bus town into town, then a number 17 bus out to Bulwell centre.

2tue08Bulwell Market was scarcely used, most folk there were passing by or through it. Not surprising, the stalls all looked bereft of any quality foods.

No rain at the moment, the sun coming through strongly, but without any heat with it?

Reminded me of the old Law & Order episodes. 

Called in the Out-of-Date-but-Cheap shop. Not much in, but I got some Heinz Curried beans, 3 cans for £1.

Moved on to the Fulton Food Store, spent a bit there and filled the bag up. 2×10 Blackcurrant and Vanilla suckers, their last four packets of Roka 30% cheddar cheese sticks (The Tenants will love these as raffle prizes… I hope) and two cans of Stewed Steak in Gravy, t only £1 each. These I could use with the Yorkshire Puddings adding my own delicious gravy mix to it?

Then into the B&M store, in the vain hope of getting some of the cans of Goulash, but they didn’t have any.

2tue09So through the market and fed the mallards on the Leen river.

Fed the Mallards, but not many were interested in eating today? Most of them were near the far wall in the Lee to avoid the strong current, and or, escape the sunshine? Turned the hearing aids up to max to listen to their, to me, incredible quacking. But the traffic, swearing kids on the park and emergency vehicle sirens and klaxons took over.

2tue10Caught the tram, dropping off at Asda-Walmart on Hyson Green, to try and get some of the Nordic Style Bacon again. I was told they are no longer able to get the product! Could have cried, so delicious it was too! Got some Zywiecka, tomatoes, Lamb Hot Pot, TV paper and Polish Potato Dumplings. With heavy bags, I departed and caught the tram into town.

I don’t fall asleep on the trams you know, only the buses. Not surprising really, the seats are tiny, plastic, bendable, uncomfortable and when the tram goes over the line junctions, you can actually see people grabbing on to anything unmovable on an effort not to be unseated! Hehe!

Worked out brilliant with the timing as it happened, I hobbled from the tram stop over the road to the L9 bus stop on Queen Street, and the L9 arrived within a minute!

Bill, from the flats, got on and we had a farcical semi-conversation, neither of us really knowing what the other one was saying, guessing at what to reply to each other.

Glad he was on the bus, though, in case I nodded off and missed the Woodthorpe bus stop again. Hehe!2tue11

A lady reminded me of the meeting with the builders tomorrow at 0400hrs and said I should attend. The last one I went to was most embarrassing, couldn’t hear what anyone was saying.

Found a poster put through the door when I got back to 72. Another meeting had been called.

2tue12A WRWW, took the medications, made a brew, and got on with preparing the meal. Poached eggs, potatoes, quiche, beetroot, tomatoes and some Polish cooked ham. Got 

Didn’t half take ages to get the washing up done, the poacher pan took the longest. All the utensils seemed to have got egg liquid, that didn’t want to be removed all over them.

Sister Jane and Olive had both warned me about this happening, and dead right they were too! Haha!

So tired after I cleaned up, but glad I’d got the laundry done early and out of the way.

Tried to watch the third Star Trek Movie. Pointless, more rewinding than watching, so I got my head down.

Inchcock Today Monday 17th October 2016


Monday 17th October 2016

Måndag 17 Oktober 2016

Woke around 0350hrs, Desperately trying to recall the many dreams I thought I’d had in the night. In a park or field, rolling giant cheese balls into holes, a bit like a cross between a bowling green and a snooker table? Many others were with me playing… we had to keep stopping to go on a bus, I was the conductor on it, and all the passengers were Lynton Cox in different uniforms? Back at the bowling and a cheese ball had gotten stuck in one of the holes, the fire brigade arrived, and the men started eating the cheeseball chopping it with an axe?

Eventually, I had to dismount the very shaky £300 second-hand recliner chair and go for a WRHD. Not an easy one, so I took yet another Senna tablet with the regular medications. 


Sweet old Fooey on my last visit to Sister Jane’s Magnificent Mansion

Laptop on and updated these diaries. Checked emails, Sister Jane tells me I am permitted to visit them this morning. Looking forward to it, I wondered where Fooey had found for a new “Get-Fooey’s-Head-Down-Spot” that was in the way, he hehe! Last time I went, Pete was trimming the bathroom carpet around the WC, and dear old Fooey decided that would be his new  “Get-Fooey’s-Head-Down-Spot.”

Got some nibbles and gifts for them, including some of that wet cat food that suits old pussies, they love it.

Got the Facebooking done.

Marie called from America on Facebook messenger – she spoke with a lovely accent. Caught me off guard and I waffled a bit I think. Made my day!

Tended to my ablutions, a carbolicalisationing session under the shower this morning.

Called to see Olive, she was suffering but still cheerful bless her cotton socks. She explained that would be best if I get the instant Yorkshire puddings, and put me wise to how she does the poached eggs. A kiss and a cuddle later, I was off on my way to visit Sister Jane, Pete and the three remaining pussies, all of us pensioners you know.

A nice chinwag with some of the tenants at the bus-stop was enjoyed. Got into town and to the West Bridgford bus stop, I nearly got injured in the mob of Nottinghamians rushing to board the thing!

The ailments, apart from Duo Denal that is, were all treating me kindly today.

Arrived at the Mansion, Pete greeted me the door, and there right in front of the door was Fooey in his new chosen “Get-Fooey’s-Head-Down-Spot.”

1mon02Near the radiator at the front door! As I took these photographs above, Pete said he thought it was selected by Fooey for the underground hot water pipes. Ah, Fooey, the grumpy-looking but so sweet old thing.

1mon06Into the kitchen-diner area and chinwagging commenced. Gave them both their gifts and nibbles and the cats some of the liquid food that they love, Jane limiting me to half a pouch each. (For the cats, not Jane and Pete like.) 

Jane gave me a Tea bag.

We managed to get Pete’s problem sorted on his laptop with his movie making from his video cameras taken when on his electric bike as he rode along the canalside.

Pete told me to let him have the size of my TV screen, and he’ll have a look a some later to pick out one that would be suitable for me, that is not too complicated and has larger sub-titling on it.

1mon03Fooey, had some nibbles and returned to his new “Get-Fooey’s-Head-Down-Spot” and had an after lunch wash. His tail looks like an extra leg? Hehe!

Jane showed me their lunches all prepared. Very posh and unBritish, Haha! Here’s worrit consisted of; Torn Mazzarella with tomato and basil with drizzled Herb Oil, Ciabatta bread and three bottles of wine. (I’m joking abut the three bottles of wine, of course, it was only 2½, Hehe)

1mon04Fond farewells and off to catch a bus into town.

As we crossed over the canal bridge, I took this photographicalisation on the right.

Didn’t come out too bad considering the bus was moving at a fair pace.

A bit sad, all those ex-British Waterways buildings that were so busy, back when I was an ankle-snapper. Posh nightclubs and other failing businesses now.

Popped into Tesco and got a pack of Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire Puddings for tonight’s culinary effort at £1.59, about 26p each.

Caught the L9 bus back to Woodthorpe Court. The journey went without any hassle or hiatus… until I fell asleep just before the flats! Whoopsiedangleplop! I had to ask the driver to let me off after we’d . Apparently, he told me, they had stopped at the right stop and two folks had got off, with me still in the land of nod like. Tsk! I did feel a fool again!

Up to the flat, WRWW and WRHD performed. No bleeding this time at all.

2tue01a-2Set about planning and getting the meal of the day prepared.

Ended up with, minced beef, onions, garden peas, potatoes, and a Frikadellen. Made some lovely thick beef and onion gravy and drenched all of the ingredients with it. Actually soaked the gravy up with three of the small wholemeal cobs.

This got a rating of 9.57/10, the highest ever given. Made a bit of a mess eating it mind, Hehe!

Settled after medications and another WRWW, to watch another Star Trek Movie, after maybe 15 attempts I gave up.

Head down and off in a flash.

Inchcock Today Sunday 16th October 2016: Got a mini-hobble in


Sunday 16th October 2016

זונטיק אקטאבער 16, 2016

7sun02Woke late, for me, at 0330hrs, then I dropped off again.

445hrs: Up and out of the £300 second-hand recliner and off for a WRHD. Not an easy session at all. Good job I should have the senna tablets coming later with the Morrison order.

To the kitchen to make a cuppa and take the medications. As I pulled the front room curtains open, the view was pretty, so I got the Lumix and opened the balcony door and took the photographicalisation above left. I’m afraid it didn’t come out as it looked, though.

Laptop on ready, and did my ablutions. The Morrison Lady arrived with the delivery for me, dead on 0630hrs, bless her.

7sun04The Egg Poacher and six eggs were there. Placed the poacher on top of the stove, awaiting my discovering of how to use it? Well, I know water goes inside, eggs in the little black pots… but do I put the lid on when they are cooking? And, how long for?

I’ll have a look on the web or ask Olive if I can get to see her later today. What’s the odds I forget?

Hehe! Olive was not in when I called later, sob!

7sun05Took one of the Senna tablets that had arrived with the Morrison order.

I put away the other stuff and got preparing the Crock-Pot vegetables. Parsnips, carrots, fresh peas, red onions, orange peppers, sliced prepared mushrooms and into the pot. As for what to have with it, I’m spoilt for choice. Fish sticks and tomatoes with potatoes? Ready to cook Lamb Hotpot and vegetables? Or chips?

Mind you, I’m not sure if BJ will ring later to ask if I want to go to the Papplewick Pumping Station 1940’s Remberance show? Hope he does, but not confident of how I’ll manage if he calls late in the day and I have to stay out into the night – the body doesn’t like it when I have to do that.

Back on the laptop and got the WordPress stuff posted and started this one off. Then did some Facebooking as the rain began to pour down outside.

nccwalk04Finished the graphic for the Mystery Photo.

Used part of it as the header.

Couldn’t get hold of BJ, so I went on the PPS site and found out the 1940’s show is on next weekend, not this.

Got the ablutions tended to with a nice carbolicalisational freshen up under the shower.

Called to see Olive, no reply. Sad now!

7sun127sun06Back to the apartment for a WRWW, then set off on a mini hobble to Sherwood.

Up the gravel hill path into the park, left and down to Mansfield Road.

Now the rain had stopped out, the view over Woodthorpe Grange Park to the north, looked beautiful!

Out of the park, sadly leaving the many dogs walking their humans, and left up and over the hill down into Sherwood proper.

First call, to Wilko’s. Where bought a 4-up Yorkshire pudding tray for £2.20, and a Dettol lavender antiseptic disinfectant.

Then down to the Co-op store and got some Yorkshire Pudding Batter mix, 26p.

7sun07On leaving after paying, I noticed a display with a sign above saying ‘Haloween Horrors’.

Why use the word Horrors, I just couldn’t fathom out?

Pumpkins, sweets, chocolates?


I’m missing something here. Other than the horror of some nasty brats trick or treating perhaps?

7sun08Out and wandered down to Winchester Street and up the hill back to the flats.

The incline didn’t cause me too much hassle… until I reached the laundry, ¾ of the way up.

The ankles were starting singing then, but not badly actually.

7sun09Hobbled along Chestnut Walk and took this photo on the right, of the Woodthorpe flats.

I still find it hard sometimes to realise I actually am living up there in the sky, in a tiny cold apartment, where I dare not open the windows in summer, spring and Autumn, cause the place get infested with flies and insects.

I can’t hear the Fire Alarm when it goes off. Four buses to town Monday to Friday, two in a Saturday and none on a Sunday.

But, did you know… I love it here!

Into the block, up the lift and into number 72 and a WRWW.

Kettle on. Read the instructions on the packet of pudding mix, needs an egg and it just needs an egg and water adding. I’ll give it a go later in the week when I get some beef to go with them.

Hoping things go well, and I can get to visit Sister Jane, Pete and the pussies tomorrow.

7sun10Got the meal on the go. I used two of the divided plates, one inside another for strength, that I got from Morrisons.

A bit like a baby’s feeding tray? Just the ticket! I made a lot less mess than normal.


Tried to watch the second Star Trek movie, but the nod-offs started almost immediately. Managed an interrupted with WRWW hour or so, before giving up and drifting off into a dream filled kip!

Graphicationalisation in need of explanation, Please – I fank you…

The Mystery Photo

That needs explaining, please?


This photographicalisation, possibly of an AA meeting, Poetry Appreciation Society or a Bring Back Communism Support Group, is in desperate need of explanation and descriptive interpretation, please.

I fank you.

Inchcock Today Saturday 15th October 2016: Stuck indoors all day, but I got a lot of graphicationalisationing done.


Saturday 15th October 2016

السبت 15 أكتوبر 2016

0245hrs: Awake and aching all over. Serves me right for having the marathon hobble yesterday. But Anne Gyna, Duo Denal, Rea Flux and Haem Aroid are all in a good mood this morning, glad to say.

The dreams, although I know I had them and thought they were depressing, left no memories of actual happenings in them. I do hate it when this happens.

kk02Dismounted the £300 second-hand recliner for a WRWW. One of many that followed throughout the day. Huh! No demands for a WWHD yet?So, when I took the medications, I added a Senna tablet to the morning’s selection.

So, when I took the medications, I added a Senna tablet to the morning’s selection and had a chinwag with KK (Koala Katie). Don’t laugh!

Still no signs of a WWHD being needed? I added some Senna tablets (The last one used – that, or I’ve lost a pack of them?) to the Morrison order that should arrive Sunday morning twixt 0630 > 0730hrs. Hope I remember!

Checked the emails and started to finalise yesterday’s WordPress diary and got it posted off.

The feet and ankles are still painful, ah-well. Might be best for me not to go out today, or maybe just a little walk in the park?

Got on with some CorelDraw creating, working on one I started ages ago. Finally got it done after several hours, but I’m not pleased with it.

Still, I dun me bestest.mb-day

I’ll post it with the title, “Well, it’s good that the lads have a hobby!” This is Duncan Robertson and Mike Steeden in their shed with Shirley peeping in. I hope to get some Caption ideas with this one, we’ll see.

Spent hours on Facebooking, but got a little mixed up with what I’d done and not done when I had a dizzy spell, first one for yonks.

CorelDraw graphicalisationing for hours and not getting it right, Humph!

Got the meal prepared and took the evening medications, noticed the jar of pickle was out-of-date, Use-by Jan 16: Tasted a bit and binned it in two plastic bags to avoid any fallout or burning. Hehe!

6sat04Very happy with this one.

I tried doing the instant potatoes, mixed with onions and cheese sauce (Ran out of cheese proper), added butter, sea salt, oregano, distilled vinegar and some Vegemite. Bashed it all up in a basin for ages to mix it well, then put the mixture into an oven dish next to a flakey pastry beef pie in the oven for 40 minutes.

The steak bits in the pastry was a bit harsh, but otherwise, everything was okay. So giving this one an 8.8/10.

Watched the first Star Trek Movie from my collection of 10 Original Star Trek Movie box. I’m forgotten how bad it was!

WRWW and WRHD then settled to watch some TV. Knocked over the bottle of orange juice, that luckily didn’t break open – but it rolled away from the chair and knocked the router thingy for the internet over!

Crossed fingers for the morning when I put it on. Oh, must remember the Morrisons Delivery arriving in the morning too!

TTFN all.
