Yesterday was very nice and I talked Z into going to see Ghostbusters with me next week so am happy about that. Also super-happy about Loathsome stepping down!
Today is a Big Day – we have our quarterly big meeting followed by the annual big dinner where one has to be on best behaviour argh. And first, an eye test – helpfully, the hospital originally scheduled two tests side by side but then they changed it so I have test 1 today and test 2 tomorrow. Today’s should be all right, it’s the peripheral vision thing, but tomorrow’s is the horrible one where I walked out with my face covered in yellow eye drops last time. I’ll be better prepared this time!
I had a reply from the cardiologist yesterday and he said he’d take a look at G’s notes, probably today. I can’t remember if I mentioned it, but this cardiologist is about to get a huge legacy, which I helped with, and yesterday I got a letter from the solicitor about it, so I was able to send that on to him and let him know he’s about to get £3.5m for his research. I think he was expecting about half that, so it’s nice to be the bearer of good news 🙂
