Today was not bad a day. Nothing outta the blue occurred. hahahaah.
It all started when Maudy rang my doorbell heavily. So I went back to bed. Then I got up eventually. I had a doctor’s appointment for the doctor to fill out a form that is one of the requirements of the Supplemental Welfare Allowance.
So then onwards and upwards to collect my rent allowance of which was Double Pay and then I headed onto to the bank to lodge money for the bills. I then continued onwards to hand in my Certificate to Store St., I then headed onto home to get ready for my sis tonight.
I was looking for various items. heeheh. Then on the way to my sis, I went to get pressies for Colette, and my Dad for his birthday AND for Christmas too. Then I headed onto her place to wrap up the pressies AND at the time had hoped to Address the envelopes. However it wasn’t too be as last night, I had created a Report in my Access contacts database and exported that into a PDF and saved it on OneDrive. However even that didn’t work, as it would not show up on my phone. So that was a bummer.
I was watching IrelandAM on my TV. They are currently have a competition of whereby the viewers have to guess “What’s In The Box”, in the lead up to Christmas. The presenters give out clues on the hour of the show. Today’s clue’s so far is as follows: Sir Walter Ralaeigh introduced this, into Ireland. The second clue was that They are categorised as Queens, Records and the Rooster are all varieties of what Vegetables. and the final clue of the competition: This veg is more fondly known as The “Spud” in Ireland. Now I thought Sir Walter Raleigh introduced the Tobacco in Cigarettes. Well who knew about the spud, hahaahha. of course the answer is Potato.
While going through my blogs I subscribe to, one Blog post was of interest that brought great memories of my Cell Phones usage. heehhe. It was based on what PRE-Android phones ie NON-smartphones. My very first phone was a Panasonic GD35. I remember I didn’t want a mobile phone at all. heheeheh. However Mom n Dad insisted if they wanted me for anything. I got it for my State Examinations aka Leaving Cert year. I remember that I was actually wanting the phone so that I could text. I would only get the numbers of guys I found cute. ehehhe. Now obviously I wasn’t out or anything. But hey. I even went as far if they know how to text instead of calling. Then I also remember that I had only gotten Nokia 3510i, which was a color screen. I remember walking home from some place late at night, I had the phone on display. I held it so tight. I had only finished a class of the ECDL. I really adored this one very much, til it got stolen. So I bought another one. Even that went down a manhole. I was working for a company Noel Hughe’s company – my relative I see on a monthly basis. heheeh. , ahahah. Another one got stolen. I then got myself a Nokia 7310, something like that. This one was not bad. It was a very highend one. My former friend Noel Kenny, recommended it. I remember that when I was looking up specs, that a USB is was a vital thing where I wanted to connect to the computer.
Well today was fairly quiet. Nothing major to report.
I was with my sis for most of the day. I had gotten up for my sis and more so fairly early for to get my Christmas Undies in Aldis in East Wall. So that said I also got pressies too. So then I came back to my sis in my place. I went to put up decorations ie the lights too. eheheheh. Then shortly afterwards, I got severe back pain sharp pain. So I was literally crippled for a few hrs. My sis when we got to her place, offered me Ibuprofen. I just had to take her up on the offer. I then told her that there;s a very strong possibility that I had slept walk. As I had old pillows atop Oneie my +Inflatables Stanescu . Now the weight of the pillows made it impossible for Oneie to start floating around or to be even budged. Yet when I woke up, there he was at the end of the bed, as much as to say that I had pushed it. It also was a contributory factor to my back pain I mean the potential sleep walk. Then we walked to her place, stopping in Tescos on the way. On the way, we bumped into Brendan who used to work as barman in Kennedy’s, whcih I think he still is there. I just ain’t. hahaha. Then onwards, we then looked at comedy, heheeheh. While doing so, I got another memory back. In this instance, I had bought my sis a doggie. She calls it Geoffrey. Both my sis n I were in town at the Annual Christmas Stalls in Henry St., when I bought it for her. Its also the same day, when I also asked Dad for MY savings aka €1000 at the time with him, He kept asking me “No Mom, I want him to tell me”, and his growing voice tone was nerving me, So I remember telling everyone, I’m not gonna bother ie ruining the day for my sis more so. So then I remember Mom had a word with Dad and he gave in in the end, thereby allowing me to get my €400 gadget which was an Archos media device something like that. Then when my sis n I came home, the amount of crap that came out of Dad’s mouth when I told him the price in front of the Kelly’s(The neighbors).
What a busy day it turned out to be.
I was initially supposedly go to the Dublin Ukulele Group or Collective. However I couldn’t find em. So I quickly checked the Facebook page. As it happens due to the weather, they cancelled it. Now when I went in it wasn’t too bad. However I since learned the weather was really bad earlier in the day when I was in Bed. hahaha. So I took the Opportunity in actually getting a bit of the Christmas shopping. As Ailish later on said and Dad always says to me, Christmas ain’t gonna wait for me. So that said, I decided to continue USING my Rent money. I had told Dad yesterday that I do have the Rent cash, which at the time, I did, however Christmas is around. So I went around firstly down the Christmas Stalls on Henry St., then came back up then headed to collect my bike to go and “collect” my Christmas Dinner. However it wasn’t to be as they didn’t have any to sell. Then I looked around and found some fabulous items. Like my Vegan Butter, i see was there, my Violife, awwwww yeahhhhhh. I then headed on off to the Christmas Market outside the Bank of Ireland. Looked around there. On my way to collect my bike, I went to see if Edmund, Evelyne and Glo(Gloria) from Vegan Ireland were there with their stand of Anti-Fur against Barnarndos selling fur. So as they WEREN’T there, I decided to ask if the cute bunny rabbit is made of fur. I went in their with a shameful face of a betraying back more so, and at the same time, frightened that one of Vegan Ireland might catch me in their. When I went in their, all I could see was dead animals with the amount of fur. Considering its a charity shop, I thought they’d sell ANYTHING, like my sis’ teddy which I bought from St. Vincent De Paul, was sold into St. Vincent De Paul hence where I bought it. So when I learned that the bunny rabbit WAS made of fur, I was totally distraught. So with that behind me, I then continued onwards towards the north of the city. Looked around.
So then when I was finished with all the looking and shopping, I came back home, afterwards, wrapping up presents etc.,
Then afterwards, I headed up to Ailish n Noel’s as pers schedule. We had a great chat. We chatted about their family and my love or more so pining for em, like Kathleen, etc., etc., Then when Ailsih asked about my birth Mom, I started to get a bit agitated nothing major of course, but still. I asked if I were to be diagnosed ewit whatever, would they think anything differnet and when Noel said “You’re one in a million”, I felt so wanted, in all my life.
So witht aht said, I headed on back home. heheeh.
