Cataract - what?

It's exactly a week since my cataract surgery.
It all started with a routine visit to the opticians - just like the last 50 odd years. I knew I needed new lenses in my glasses but wasn't prepared for being told that the optician couldn't correct the sight in my left eye!
There was a cataract which was obscuring the view of the back of my eye where there was possibly also 'cellophane maculopathy' otherwise known as 'wrinkly retina'.
I was referred to the ophthalmology department at Luton & Dunstable Hospital.
After having my appointment cancelled once, I was seen and underwent a whole array of tests and hi-tech scans before seeing the consultant. He sent me for yet another scan before being able to tell me that it was 'only' a cataract and he would put me on the waiting list. "How long is the waiting list" I asked. "About two weeks" he said. Blimey.

The story continues next time...

Take a look at this receipt:
Can of 'LARGER' £3.00
It wouldn't have been so bad, but it wasn't even lager, it was cider!

Milestones Museum - Lego!

There was a Lego event going on while we were there - "Quest For The Brick Kingdom".
There was a booklet of clues for children to solve to save the Brick Kingdom.
All around were these amazing huge models...

Milestones Museum

Milestones museum is "Hampshire's Living History Museum" and can be found in Basingstoke.
It's a re-creation of a Victorian town - we were there for almost 6 hours!

Quite a lot of talking exhibits

A lot of steam!
