    On the train into The Big Smoke, headed to our advisors first where a free Full English is on offer. I'm easily tempted. Then to the office for lots of meetings.

    Morning extrait de cornichon

    Sunny, very nippy. Must bring some plants in.
    Today chores and the usual run around.

    Early hound walk in the dark ๐Ÿ˜ข



    Nice by the end, but still rather cold for a hybrid commute with thistle (at least he had gloves on).

    Later is return ride and probably a gentle run
  • Site meeting followed by more workywork.
    Not sure about later but need to pack for a weekend away.

    Mitigation, please :) If you get the round in, that's another way.

    Got 35 mins to wait for da next train dahn saff from that there Glesca.

    Seen by high heid yin eye surgeon this morning. Some positive news in that condition now stable, I will have to have a residual debris extraction op but that will be 6-8 weeks away. So one working eye for extended period. The vitreous gel has separated from the retina so minimal risk of retinal damage in the clear out.

    He told me that, given the series of events, I was lucky! Normal predicted outcome with this sort of infection is permanent loss of vision and probable eye removal. Do I feel lucky? Well do I?

    Y'all queasy yet?

    Need to recalibrate my life for next few months, e.g. really not comfortable about riding bikes with only 1/2 vision.

    Afternoon
    Hopefully finally over the galloping wild sh!tes that Iโ€™ve had since my return from foreign parts. I suspect it was something I ate on the ferry, I guess that will teach me not to send a dish back when eating in a restaurant. Managed a ride earlier which hasnโ€™t led to a prolonged period sitting on the loo.
    Fingers and legs crossed for the rest of the day.

    Ewww. Hope recovery continues well.
  • Day working at home today, there might be a certain bike race playing on my phone in the background.

    Sounds 'orrible. If it's any consolation an old uni mate of mine lost one eye to cancer and now has a glass eye, which is actually pretty hard to spot if you're not really looking for it and he still drives a car and rides a bike round Richmond Park.

    Respec' to him. It must take time and more time for one's brain to recalibrate from binocular vision to just having the one eye. My brain is in the wtf is going on so good eye is stressed. Getting more pirate patch motivated, stop all this open/close/open/what was that stress.

    Got a planned Vlaanderen long weekender a-comin' soon. Brain/eye combo not retuned, for I do hope this temporary situation, so not at all confident about driving ~1k miles. #1 daughter offering to do the drive from The Valley so I could train it down. But but but how do I refill my empty Belgie beer cases? ๐Ÿค”

    My landlord (student digs) had one eye and used to cycle to and from work everyday. Plus he won the Sussex Open Snooker Tournament in the 70's with his one eye.
    But never mind that, things are improving by the sounds of it and in time...

    Cheers guys ('n' gals 'n' ok stop that) I've had an education (I may have said effinL at one point) today and it does look I've been lucky. Respect to the local admins and consultant who chased me (I was at the trainee gardeners graduation) down on that first flashing red light day to get me back in for the immediate 'kin pass out painful treatments. Had that not happened I'd be minus 1 eye now.

    Anyways, chill ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Always room for you on the back of my tandem Mr O.

    Next door neighbours son in law lost his sight in both eyes over a period of time, says he wouldnโ€™t wish it on anyone but itโ€™s not the worst thing to happen to him

    Evening folks,
    Another busy day in the orifice, cooler wobble in so I added a layer and was too hot as a result.
    There were 3 guys at work with only 1 eye each when I first started for the company. All of them driving and carrying on as normal. One of them knocked himself out sparko when he turned around in the roof space and hit the steel girder that was on his blind side, I heard the clang downstairs.
    Just been to the pub for beer and bollox, world put to rights.

    Never seen a cyclops but to work with three! Pretty cool. Wonder if he knew he was going to hit the girder before it happened.

    I think he was more surprised than the rest of us, or at least he was when he picked himself up off the floor a short while after.
