Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

What is the verdict regarding your eye, Wendy? No damage to the retina but the pressure in both my eyes is very high. I got a thorough examination and there is no damage to the optic nerve yet. I should get a phone call on Monday about more tests and an appointment to see the consultant. The weeken...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Thanks Kev, it's always reassuring to know that other people have gone through the same thing! My brother had it a few years ago in one eye and then the other. It's the pressure thing that has me more worried, the optician scared me by saying that putting drops in to dilate the pupil could bring on ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Visiting Burnley General Eye Department with a bit of an issue with my right eye. I got an emergency appointment at my optician on Wednesday after noticing flashing light on the edge of my vision and new floaters. This can either be either a common aging thing as the gel in your eye dries out or the...

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

No idea what that one is for but I used to love the brush shop on Victoria Street in Edinburgh. They made and sold every type of brush you could possibly want. Long gone now though.

Re: GOOD TV

I usually enjoy watching Who Do You Think You Are but have just switched off in disgust at Kate Winslet's histrionics at finding the child of an ancestor died at 5 years old in the early 19th century. Wow, that was unusual.

Just returned home after the walk and it went very well, the weather being perfect and some lovely people to chat to along the way. We had 18 people walking with us from all over the country, some of whom were doing walks every day this week.

Margaret Brown and I are leading a history walk as part of the Pendle Walking Festival this morning. Walk 14 in the brochure, we will be focussing on old tracks in the area. We have 12 people booked for a walk of about 7 miles around Earby, Harden and Kelbrook so I hope we get some dry weather.

Not going to Trawden Show which has been cancelled because of the wet ground. It's only the second time in my 20 years here, unavoidable but such a disappointment to all involved.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I used to go to watch the horse driving trials at Lowther near Penrith which was always exciting, there is such skill involved in the various disciplines. The Duke of Edinburgh was always there with his team of black Fell ponies.

A housework morning for me as I have a quick turnaround of visitors. One left yesterday afternoon and the next arrives today. I'm also hoping to get the grass cut this afternoon as it looks like the last dry day for a long time! Joanna and I enjoyed a lovely few days walking and chatting. We covered...

Dennis perked up a bit yesterday and is happily eating grass in the field but his breathing is laboured. I tried a few ways of getting the bute (anti-inflammatory) into him but he was having none of it. A trip to the vets to get a large syringe and then a mix of treacle and a bit of warm water final...

Dennis was stood quietly in the field yesterday afternoon and not grazing which is unusual for him. I went to check him a couple of times and he seemed relaxed and cool but definitely not his normal self. I could feel lumps at the back of his jaw which aren't normally there. By 4.30 I was worried en...
