This is a very belated post. I had planned to sit down earlier this week and write about last year and my plans for this, but circumstances somewhat overtook me. When our New Year guests left, Hudson, my guide dog, became suddenly very ill. On the evening of the 2nd January I found myself at the emergency vets while he had surgery. I am pleased to report that he is now recovering well and should soon be back to full health.
In summary, in 2016 I lost my job and my right eye! Neither of which I miss in the slightest as both caused me a lot of pain and anguish!
My plans for this year? To find plenty of voluntary work to discover what I am good at. 20 plus years of computer support is enough to kill off any imagination you might have around work! Ideally, when I find something, I’d like to think I’ll be able to find someone to pay me to do it. While I’m not working, I’d like to improve my writing skills and persuade my consultant to remove my other eye before it gets unbearably painful.
Have a good one everyone!
