Off down to visit my parents in Devon on the train - bit of a trek. The stick's coming in useful, if only to get me through the wider ticket barrier; surprising how helpful can be! I do find myself feeling a lot older with a stick, though, not helped by the fact that I've recently acquired new glasses. Turns out my sore eyes are due to having one long-sighted and one short-sighted! Why do all my medical problems have to be "unusual"?! Going to have a restful weekend catching up with family, eating too much (my Mum's a far better cook than me) and forgetting about hospitals and ops for a few days. But thanks, @Thesoutherncook and @Mojo333 - I'll be dreaming gum balls! Happy weekend all.
