WE HEAD into Glasgow first thing and Margaret drops me at the station in Milngavie.
I’ve an appointment at the eye hospital but it;s not for a couple of hours so I get off the train at Hyndland, go for a coffee and do some work. There’s no food (other than cakes) at Peckham’s as the chef isn’t in ’til later. I finish my coffee and go up to Epicure which, although is meant to open at 9am (it’s 9.30am now) and the doors open there’s no sign of any staff or people!
There’s an nice wee cafe along the road and I have a roll and sausage and a coffee there then take a walk to Gartnavel for my appointment.
I wait for a good two hours before I’m seen but it’s worth it – the consultant is happy there’s no activity in my eyes despite having been off the steroid for three or four months. After 17 years on them I’m finally getting a break!
It’s a good hour or so walk to. Costco where i have a chicken sandwich and wait for Margaret. After a quick run round Tesco we head for home then get ready for a community trust meeting. After a year off I’ve been re-instated as communications consultant.
