Eye eye again

While I was in the bathroom this morning I noticed that my left eye looked a little bloodshot. On closer inspection I found out why – my old friends the colds sores had once again made an appearance.

So it was yet another trip to the A&E department of the Eye Infirmary. Even though the A&E is open 24 hours, people must have been putting off from going over the weekend as the place was crammed.

However true to the assessment nurses word I was seen well within the hour as they had at least four consultants dealing with patients.

As this appears to be happening quite regularly I asked the consultant, if instead of going to A&E each time, could I just go to my GP for the usual ointment. Sadly it has to be a trip to the A&E every time just in case the virus spreads further into the eye.

A bit of an annoyance but still it’s better than losing an eye.

Only something your mother would say

While I was at my mam’s yesterday she mentioned she’d bought some stocking fillers when she was shopping in Newcastle.

“One of them was for you”, she said “but as it doesn’t have a sun factor of 15 in it, I’ve decided to keep it for myself”.

“Oh what is it”, I asked.

“Some anti-wrinkle cream”, she replied….

I know I’ve just turned 40 but there’s no need to rub it in ! ! ! !

We really are still here…

…honest ! ! !

Things have been very quiet in the BOGOF household. Ok when I mean quiet I mean not much happening, not no sound quiet.

The past few weeks have been any thing but quiet, sound wise.

We’re both still suffering from the flu* lergy so the house is (and has been) pretty deafening with sounds of coughing, sneezing and nose blowing…

Normal service will resume shortly.


* it wasn’t man flu, it was the real thing…
