Thought I'd start my own blog for a change.

Had a 35 bus ride to the QMC Glaucoma Clinic this morning (bus is more reliable than the tram ).

Eyes tested, eye drops applied, photo's taken. Consultant examined eyes & said that the laser treatment I had back in January was completely successful ! Pressures in the eyes only half of what they were in January !

BUT he said, having had a good look at yer eyes you will have to have more laser treatment for the Macular Oedema very soon. "Not nice", or something similar I thought .

 

Back in Bulwell called in to the Salvasion Army Oasis cafe for a latte & Mrs C found me a nice Jeff Banks 3/4 length coat  in perfect condition for a fiver !

 

Walked past Lloyds bank & checked my account, first months OA Pension gone in albeit 2 weeks late. A lifetime of graft for a meagre monthly pittance I thought, anyway continuing on through the market place I noticed the flower seller getting ready to knock off for the day & he was selling bunches of flowers for £2 a bunch or 4 bunches for a fiver. Being the daft old softie I am & knowing how to woo a woman (Benjamin will testify) I decided to invest some of my newly found wealth courtesy of HM Govt & treat Mrs C to a bunch of flowers. In a moment of madness I bought her 4 bunches for a fiver instead. Here you go I said, 4 bunches of flowers for the next 4 weeks !

Mrs C got a gud un in me !!

You're slacking, Catfan!  We've been married for 27 years and I've had at least one bunch of flowers every week

Only jesting Ann, you're fortunate to have a man who thinks to buy you flowers every week!   Mine even struggles with birthday cards ......... the other year he gave me a card on my birthday which said 'Happy Anniversary' !! Shouldn't grumble though, he's ok really!

 I bought some flowers for Mrs. L onetime.  The gal on the checkout asked, "Is it your wife's birthday?"  I told her no.  Before I could say anything else she asked.  "What have you done?"  :biggrin:

 

BTW that's not the way it sounds.  I do buy her flowers more than one time.

There's more things than a bunch of flowers to show a woman the appreciation she deserves ;)

I do the same, Rog.  She won't count them though. :rolleyes:. They've got to come wrapped in plastic with a ribbon round 'em.

Mrs C outside mowing the lawn, she likes her new mower.

 

Went to Bulwell this morning called in at Wilko's & Mrs C mentioned she needed to give the door steps a fresh coat of paint. Bought her a tin of step paint, flowers the other day,now paint as well, you can see how much I spoil her !

Oh blimey Catfan, you won't be able to use your bus pass either!  I had to be in QMC by 7.30am a few weeks ago, it wasn't worth going to bed!

I know Lizzie, those times are obscene !

Better suited to blokes like bubblewrap who get up at the crack of dawn !

Me, anything before 9 am I don't want to know !

I swapped my "earlies" mostly for day shifts or there was a 2 year period where I only worked "lates" (for a fee) some blokes didn't want to do lates ! Never bothered me.

How late was late?  I would think you might get some pretty obnoxious characters on your bus after the pubs chuck out.
