Big chunks of time have gone by and my posts have been non existant, but our build is progressing well and we are currently installing plasterboard to the walls and ceilings.
The deterioration of my sight has continued and I can best describe it as living in a vaseline jar. Everything is blury,  I can no longer drive and have had a couple of tumbles through not seeing clearly.
On Tuesday I undergo surgery for the removal of the offending eye lense and the fitting of a genuine artificial plastic prosthesis.
I confess that the thought is rather confronting of someone coming near your eye with something sharp, but it can't be any worse than a root canal right?
So by Wednesday I should have clear sharp vision back in my left eye.
Wish me luck.


  1. Bravo on the house progress and I'm sure hoping your eyesight is greatly improved with a minimum of discomfort.

  2. Wishing you the best and a speedy recovery.

  3. Wishing you a speedy and successful recovery for your eye op.

  4. Best of luck on your eye surgery. So strange for me to read this today because of a dream I had last night about an "eye extraction" procedure which I was to undergo which I though made it sound like they were going to remove my eyes but it was just to make me see more clearly. Clearly metaphorical in my case.
    I miss seeing your creations though!

  5. Wishing you a very fast and painless recovery and I really hope you can get back to creating your lovely jewellery and painting very soon.

  6. All good thoughts. So wonderful your sight can be restored to enjoy your new home and horizon.
