Cheers for the reassurance Herc, I'm quite happy to go in ignorant (I was going to say blind) and trust the experts.

Plenty of time for them to swab the decks and wash the last of the Covid away Whistling nnocently

I'll keep an eye out for you.................

Well, speaking of Covid and the severe backlog of operations, including for the eyes according to the news, my experience has been that I was offered my recent "trap door in the eyeball" and had the op. within a couple of weeks of that. So, no backlog it seems in our local hospital at all.

As for the Covid - I had to have a test on the Friday for the op. on the Monday, and that was it. Presumably I hadn't got it, otherwise there would have been no eye operation.

Some years ago I had to have a throat operation and it was during the MRSA scare, which I seemed to have picked up somewhere. That did take sometime to have the op. as I had to clear that up with a special body-wash they gave me, which I had to use everyday for about a fortnight.

My dentist is brilliant. Recently had one of the big front ones out and while I just felt the anesthetic jab the extraction was silent and painless. Mind you, for the monthly fee I'd expect her to do home visits to clean them, preferably naked Cool

Optometrist on a recent eye test said I'm developing cataracts but should be fine for a couple of years - now that I am actually sh***ing myself about :O

I had one done a couple of years ago. Not too bad.

I've had my living room re-decorated this week.
Now before you all get on to me about how I paid for it.
A man I know did it for £100 cash and I supplied the materials from B&Q.
Whether he declares it or not is up to him - so no intrusive questions. OK

Unless of course HMRC feel that, by paying cash, you were aware that it was likely that he would not be declaring it for tax purposes (which clearly you were since you raise the subject) and consequently rule that you colluded with the tradesman in avoiding meeting his liability...
