I caught some sun this weekend, for the first time in 3 months or so. It feels like it's been overcast since September. But this weekend all is good again.

The sun is so low in the sky this time of year we have to climb a hill to actually see it.

Socialising this Saturday with real human lifeforms for the first time in 5 weeks following my eye op. pretty excited about cheeky afternoon vermuts and hearing good tuneage at the Pulitzer.
What did you have done to it?

I don't know the mechanics but they basically adjusted the retinal muscles to realign my wonky eyes. I wasn't blinded or anything but the stitching was super painful after. thankfully on mend now. Hopef good to drive by the summer, o'wise it's endless waits at airless bus stations..
Ouch! Sounds painful. Glad it's healed up!

I've been considering whether laser surgery might overcome the fact I struggle to read very small text close up in my contacts these days - but the very idea of cutting into any bit of the eyes make me feel faint!

Great weekend planned here.

Friday night - Arsenal footy session with my eldest and then we're taking the coaches out to dinner for all last year's support. We might be a little late home for Sleepover in the Cloud.

Satuday morning - take eldest to guitar lessons. Saturday afternoon - back on the football pitch for first time since injury in November. Not fit at all, but can't wait.

Sunday morning - maybe Parkrun with kids, take them to my folks and then soft play and/or cinema

FYI - I had Lasik a the beginning of 2020 to correct my vision to 20/20. My doc said that regardless of how good your vision is after the surgery it won't stop the natural degradation of your eyesight for near sightedness (i.e. needing readers for fine print).

Not sure if that helps, def go talk to your doc and find out if it's correctable Love not having to wear my glasses.

Switched this up and now off to Whipsnade Zoo in the afternoon, which has a soft play too and a great outdoor climbing play area:cool:*

*Thinking about how different this from my clubbing weekend plans of old has reminded me that in the early 90s (I think), some well known house promoters held parties at London Zoo? Did anyone go? I have vague memories of apocryphal tales of battered clubbers finding themselves in an enclosure with bears, or releasing crocodiles?

No but I went to a Zoo Project held in Port Lympne Reserve in Kent. Entry to the zoo was included, Mrs and I walked around it with 100's of people absolutely smashed out their heads. Many were still up from the first night, dressed in animal costumes and some had branches from trees they were feeding to the animals 😳😳😳
I walked into the normal camping bit* on the Sunday and it was like a zoo with shit everywhere.

*we had VIP camping for free

I’ve just given a sample that resembles dodgy homemade cider from a farm in Somerset

Sounds like the wild fermented scrumpy I make my apple & rosemary jelly from. Lovely stuff :D Get some stinging nettle tea down you or blanch some tips to de-sting them and have them with your dinner. Stinging nettle top growth is very good for clearing up UTIs .... obviously not applied topically :eek:😂
