I bought a pair of telescopic shears the other day. Their only purpose is to keep the likes of Clematis from obscuring the 2 outside cameras and they have achieved what I wanted, ie. I only need to go up a couple of steps on the step ladder now and no stretching that I don’t think I’d manage safely.

As for me and a previous post on health. I got as far as a pre-op med. That was OK until the results of blood tests came back. I wasn’t just the mildly anaemic we knew about, this time I was at a point where they wanted to give me blood transfusions and I had to attend the “Acute Medical Unit” clinic a couple of times.

Then they had to put a camera down both ends of me, the results of which were reported to be OK. Then they wanted to rerun the big end, then they wanted a stools test to justify the re run, and they want to do some fibrescan (liver) test. Then, along comes Corona Virus and everything is on hold.

Whatever, I’m actually feeling a fair bit better in myself than I was a month or so back. I’m wanting to try to do things and, at my plodding pace, I’m achieving bits outside. Here’s a bit of the farm track – looks like potatoes in the field this year - I like to keep down. A lot of growth was over 1ft but strimmed then a rough mow on Sunday. I can’t eg. weed or other things at ground level but some things don’t trouble me.
