Apart from the need for reading glasses the optician said my eyes are good, and the glasses are fine for distance. He put the magic eye drops in, so I had to wait a bit before driving back to work, but I was going to grab a sandwich anyway. And an apricot and almond tart, and a coffee.
Then I had a trip to the dentist to have my crown put on. Since temporary fillings have a strong tendency to fall off for me, the dentist has taken to sticking large lumps of concrete in my mouth, and this one took quite a bit of chipping away. They then tried to charge me 210 pounds to which my response was 'hang on, I paid in advance'. Despite their computer system the real record of who has paid what seems to be an A4 notebook and eventually it became apparent that I had paid.
Of course, having only had a sandwich for lunch I was then left not being allowed to eat anything until 7 p.m. I am supposed to not eat on that side of the mouth this evening, which I have so far managed.
