I really wanted to do an OTE in video form but my Dad keeps coming upstairs and prowling about for more stuff to pack up, so not only can I not just prattle on without worrying but also I'm actually being disturbed by him coming in every few minutes. Understandable given the circumstances but just a little bit annoying considering that there isn't anything more he can pack, no matter how often he asks me to make sure.
Anyway, so, OTE: Thursday. The last one written in The Land That Time Forgot!
To explain the picture:-
I wanted to show how empty my room is now in today's Photo A Day, but there's no way for me to take the photo by leaning on the window ledge because I'm too far away for my webcam, so I had to do one nearer to the computer. I have packed away all my paper and pens stuff, the only thing I have left is my notepad and my pink pencil cases which has, for drawing purposes, a stray black felt tip, a stray green felt tip and some permanent markers which have mostly ran out.
And there's just no way to hold up a sign, take the photo and stand up all at the same time so the obvious solution. First I tried taping it to my glasses but I couldn't see out of them and ended up closing the acer webcam programme.
And obviously it's Thursday and 4 days to go until we move. AHHHHHHHHHHH
Today I got a call back from WarrenCare and because of time problems I'm just gonna go with them. They charge higher than the council standard for direct payment clients (14.95) but when I called up the Direct Payments team to tell them, the woman I speak to there told me I should be able to get them to lower the cost to the council standard (£10.60) by either just discussing it or switching to a council contract (which would take me off Direct Payments) and either they'll take me on as a council contract or they risk losing that money altogether by me being put on the other council contracted care company for the area.
So the woman I spoke to today will be coming out to the flat next Thursday at 9 o clock! to assess me and once again my Mum might need a carer assessment, but we'll burn that bridge once we've crossed it.
The good thing is, my sleep pattern at the moment means I'm going to sleep at anytime between 9:30 to 11:30, except last night I stayed up until 12:30, and waking up anytime between 5:30 and 8. The bad thing is, Mig keeps calling me at her usual time of 2 o clock in the morning and I'm asleep! So I've not managed to speak to her in a few weeks :/
I just still can't really believe we're moving, even though most of my room is empty and echo-ey.
And yesterday it all went wrong with the timing of Cabin Pressure and the carer came a bit late so I had to wait to listen to it on iPlayer... and I loved the episode, but it really turned me into my fourteen year old self. I was literally sat here going "Oh no, Martin, you daft sod! Aw my poor baby, you lovely sod you! I WANNA CUDDLE HIM"
And you know what? The doctor's lied to me about my referral. It wasn't done in the first place, it still wasn't done when they said they'd sent it off and faxed it through to make sure, nothing was sent through at all and so obviously there's nothing from Choose and Book acknowledging a referral being made. So now I'm gonna have to wait to go to the doctor's when we move to get my heart looked at. In the meantime, I've spent over three months having heart palpitations, constant heart murmur that I am aware of 99.9% of the time and actual twinges in my chest that make it hard to breathe. And yeah, it might be all coming from my back putting stress on my ribcage like the A&E doctors said, but even they said heart problems need to be ruled out first.
I've changed my address on Lovefilm, so my plan is to watch the last disc of Blake and Mortimer tomorrow morning, which isn't from LoveFilm, and follow that by Gilmore Girls and Dr Zhivago either also tomorrow or Saturday morning, in time for the post. Lovefilm should get that on Monday and then the next lot of discs sent out will go to the flat. I also have to change my address on amazon, ebay, Tescos, Asda and JustEat. I probably won't bother with play.com, I ended up having to call them three times about it and it still didn't get fixed until I changed banks.
And writing has completely fallen out of the window. Ugh.
