I suppose I have been doing this for 20 years

I had a disturbing reminder that time passes this morning. Not only has the long-sightedness in my eyes got to the point where reading the smallest of small print on packets would be a lot clearer with lenses for close work (it's completely cancelled out the short-sightedness in my good eye), but I have what the optician called a very very small cataract in my right eye. This will either grow very slowly or really quite fast. And of course that's my good eye in terms of distance vision, and I'd been looking forward to a corrective digital lens in my left eye at some time (though I am utterly utterly freaked by the idea of anaesthetics, operations and invasive procedures) so it would have been far more effiicient to have it there.

Also distressing; my osteopath is in hospital and his practice is closed for the duration. He's a delightful man as well as a wonderful practitioner and I'm hoping very hard that he's all right. And, in a different way, that my wrist is strained rather than in need of a manipulation because I don't have time to try out a new osteo before we travel on saturday. This week is jet lag, work, work, jet lag, work, sorting out the urgent things before we travel and jet lag; a nice break last night having dinner with a friend from the US who is acting as tour guide for her mother, her mother-in-law and an aunt - and Valentina is so close for dinner ;-)
