A Cold Shopping Tuesday

Checking Emails
And here we are at another Tuessday, again not a bad nights sleep but still waking up a couple of times during the night, but at least I get back of to sleep again quite quickly. anyway was up at 8.00 this morning and into the lounge with a coffee to wait for the carer to arrive, hopefully Carol will be back today, but while I am waiting I check out my emails and facebook.

Gordon is unwell today
Well it is nearly 9.30 and no carer has arrived as of yet, hopefully the carer will arrive soon as I have an Appointment at the eastney Health Centre at 10.30 to have my blood taken for my monthly blood works, and Pauline will be here at 10.10 to collect me and I have yet to have my breakfast. well at last the Carer arrives and it is another one I have not seen before, it is 9.30 so the carer gets me washed and groomed and is then on her way, Gordon phones to say he is not well today so will not be round to do the 2 hours cleaning, but Pauline will be here about 10.15 with the Taxi to take me for the blood test so a quick breakfast of Toast and Honey and then a shave and get dressed ready for when Pauline arrives.

well I just about finish getting ready when Pauline arrives with the Taxi. Pauline drops of my clean Laundry she has brought with her today and then we are off in the taxi to the Eastney Health Centre to see Debby AKA "The Vampire" to give the blood for my monthly blood test,
Eastney Health Centre
Hello Debbie
The taxi drops us off and we go in to the reception, it is 10.25 and my appointment is for 10.30 ish, anyway I also hand in a repeat prescription request to collect next Thursday and then we go and sit in the waiting room , I am number 14 and number 13 has just gone in, so it is not long before Debbie calls me in and it does not take long for her to draw the blood from me.

Once I have given my blood we go back out and phone for a taxi to take us home to collect the wheel chair and then off down to the city centre to get some shopping, I have not got to get a lot today, but Pauline needs to get some as well so we will probably have a look round Town and then have a coffee before going to Sainsburys for shopping today., once the taxi collects us we go and get the wheel chair and then the taxi drops us  off behind Boots the chemist in the city centre. and my first stop is the Nationwide.

Once I have got that done we walk down the precinct to the fountain and then make our way to Wilkinson,s to get a few things in there before making our way back into the precinct to have a coffee at the "Espresso" mobile coffee bar in the Precinct

As you can see it is not that busy in the city centre today, I think the damp, cold weather is keeping people indoors at the moment. once we have had a coffee we make our way down the precinct to market way and over to the large Sainsbury,s store which is quite near to Morrisons the reason I like to go to Sainsburys occasionally is because they have a good Gluten free section and today  get my Gluten free Porridge and a tin of Gluten free Spaghetti in tomato sauce.
Sainsburys Portsmouth City Centre.
 Once we have got what we wanted we get it aid for and then I phone for a taxi to take us back home. Once we are home I make a coffee and we get the shopping put away and Me and Pauline have a chat and then I order a taxi to take Pauline home to Gordon while I have a quick snack as it is 2.45 and then settle down to get this Journal written.
It has been a decent day today, the weather has not been very nice but it was nice to be out around the shops for a couple of hours anyway It is now 4.40 and Gervase has just phoned to make sure I am OK , and I will be seeing him tonight, so I am going to get this journal posted nice and early and then I can get an early dinner tonight of Rainbow trout and Mashed Potato, so Until tomorrow I will say Bye Bye.
