Post West


It was a short, sweet week, golden in the way that good weather weeks are at this time of year; sunlight buttery on fields still green. I never usually do crosswords, but I did one every day, sitting in a beach chair under a tree, seven buzzards above the house one hot mid-afternoon, and in the evenings watching the swallows wheel.

Trips to the seaside. A sunny Bank Holiday, who'd have thought it, and the Brits out doing what the Brits do best. Sand in the shoes and salt on the skin.

Less pleasantly, today I had laser surgery in both my eyes for ocular hypotension. Happy days.

  2. You should link to the wikipedia page for ocular hypotension Davy - did you know we have a bit in our eyes called the Zonule of Zinn? Sounds straight out of Starblazer. Also, if I were you I'd be pressing my GP for my medicinal cannabis.
