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 donít think Iíd 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 wasnít 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 ďAcute Medical UnitĒ 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, Iím actually feeling a fair bit better in myself than I was a month or so back. Iím wanting to try to do things and, at my plodding pace, Iím achieving bits outside. Hereís a bit of the farm track Ė 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 canít eg. weed or other things at ground level but some things donít trouble me.
