Back to opthalmology outpatients last week for my post operative assessment. Following an eye test I sat, comparing notes, with the patients who had been operated on the same day as me. My turn came to see the doctor and I told him that my eyesight had been improved a great deal by the procedure but I would not be able to see without my glasses (as had been suggested by the surgeon who had carried out the op). "Oh no David, your eyes are fine now. You can leave the glasses off and you just need reading spectacles. Your other eye doesn't need doing yet so we will discharge you."
I leave the hospital and walk into town without my specs. It feels really odd and I'm not sure I feel safe without them. Is it psychological, I still haven't decided. I'll let you know how I get on.
The moped at the top of the page is a 1965 Raleigh Runabout RM6 which I have had for about nine months and am now renovating in my usual penny pinching way. Just think the Beatles (and myself) were just coming into their prime when the proud first owner wheeled it on to the street and popped away.
Right now better get ready as off to Leigh on Sea to visit my daughter and family and the Hackney Slasher for a couple of days. As they say these days "speak to you soon".
