Waiting For The Man

| No Comments


Man about to call and give us a quote for replacing the polycarbonate roofing on our lean-to conservatory, which was damaged in the recent hailstorm. At the same time dreading the arrival of more men, rumoured to be turning up today to fell two majestic ash trees at the bottom of the neighbouring plot of land. If they go, it will change our outlook considerably, and will be a severe loss to birds, squirrels etc. Yesterday afternoon we were serenaded by a very happy mistle thrush, apparently oblivious of the impending chainsaw.

My optician has finally been back in touch about the unsatisfactory new specs. He's just 'as coincidence would have it' attended a lecture by Professor Jalie 'probably the premier spectacle lens expert in this country' who has developed a computer program 'to help dispensing opticians solve off centre performance problems'. I have to go back with my old glasses, new glasses, old prescritions etc so that they can take readings. Good job I can still see perfectly well through my old specs.
