Tuesday… let it snow (again!)

I an back at work again after a couple of check-ups at St Thomas’s yesterday. The opthalmologists diagnosed dry eyes (and a very low level infection) so I have to artificila tears for use when needed. The dermatologists are very pleased with my progress, and I will carry on with the ECP at six weekly intervals. And that, as they say, was that!

I drove back to Corsham last night – it was -6C when I left home, rose to -3C on the journey, but wqas back at -6C when I arrived! I was very glad I left the heating on (at a low level) while I was away – the flat wasn’t too cold! And the air is quite dry now, so the car was pretty much free from frost this morning.

Today has seen a few flurries of snow, and the sky is looking quite leaden (and it has just started snowing again) so we shall see what tomorrow brings!

Onwards and Upwards!

    Well, the snow looks like it is settling in for the night….. so may have to excercise discretion and not go into work tomorrow 😉

    Bit of a shame as still trying to finish off November accounts due to snow disruption and christmas!!

    Hey ho (or ho ho ho as Santa would say) here’s looking forward to a nice summer and lots of celebrations this year 🙂

    Well, everyone must be cut-off by the snow…….. at least there are still leftover supplies of mulled wine to drink if we run out of milk 😉

    Hope you all managed to keep warm and safe

    Just as well we have plenty of food in as ice has taken over and the lanes are impassable.

    We have just been out to clear the downhill part of the drive which has new (ish) tarmac to the road but two cars got stuck in the lane and whilst helping them out with a friendly Land Rover the another car got stuck.

    It turns out they were carers trying to reach their clients, true heroism in this weather, especially considering their wage rate.

    So all trips are off for a couple of days looking at the forecast as it appears that the temperature is likely to stay well below freezing even during the day. So not much chance of a thaw of the ice on the road.

    A local farmer has come by with a snow plough but that has just cleared the snow off the ice which is so slippery that it is hard to stand on it with the camber of the road.

    Pleasures of rural living.

    Nice and warm in here though.

    my rheumatoid’s latest addition is ‘secondart Sorgen’s syndrome’ dry eyes and mouth being the symptoms. The artificial tears help. I find the crucial use is just before going to sleep so that your eyes are lubricated overnight. My additional problems are mor allergig than infection, but not fun. I also find that ther slightest ‘bit’in my eyes feels like a large rock has got stuck, I then have to use excess artificial tears to flush it out. Going out doors in the recent cold made me feel as if the little tears that I do make were being instantly frozen!!! an interesting sensation.
    I also find the dryness seems to be exacerbated when I swim.
    Have fun!
