Bit of a weird one this week, I recently had an eye checkup and they spotted something at the back of my eye - it was described to me as a pigmentation, and could be anything - a birthmark (?), freckle or maybe something else. This was only seen because they took one of those big high definition photos of my eye - it never came up under normal observation. I’m seeing a specialist next week.
Unrelated to this, but in the same eye, I began to get a sore eye on Tuesday afternoon. I took my contact lenses out, but it was still sore, so I went back to the optician. It turns out that I had an ulcer on my cornea so i’ve been back and forth on that too with antibiotic drops!

Yes, this is a parody account, one of many good ones across Twitter such as UKIP Weather - quickly set up when some brainless idiot decided to pronounce the fact that the recent floods we have been having are due to gay marriage.
I actually enjoy these twitter accounts - it’s the closest we’re going to get nowadays to Spitting Image or Drop The Dead Donkey - all of which are missed and we seem afraid to satirize our leaders like this anymore. The French seem to be on the right track - dumping horse manure outside the National Assembly seems like a good start.
yes there are also some excellent sites like The Poke or The Onion which make light of our people in power, but am I in a minority to think that this is not enough?
Just going trough the list of people Spitting Image lampooned makes some fun reading - now think how much fun they would have now…..
Sometimes I think that the politicians are mocking us - it’s time we mocked them back!

Until next year. As we are at 12th night, my wife had been packing away the decorations, ready for me to put away in the loft for another 300-odd days
The house does look bare, but I suppose we’ll get used to it.
