I'm feeling decidedly cheesed off with everything just now. I visited the optometrist today and discovered there is no point in getting new glasses as the central vision in my left eye is virtually gone! At least having the cataract removed has let in a lot more light and thus the peripheral vision has improved so I can still see quite well enough to continue driving etc. Just harded to see for close work. Thank goodness my right eye is not deteriorating at all at present. The moral of this story is go and do all the things you think you want to do while you still can!
I am of to do some work in our garden for a while, that is always relaxing.
