Yesterday I managed to get into the shed.  I only spent about 15 minutes there and managed to start the other platform for Chelford, but I couldn't summon up any real enthusiasm for it, or, for that matter, anything else at the moment.  I am still recovering from the major operation I had and it is becoming very frustrating not being able to get around and do things, especially in the garden where so much needs to be done. I'm just hoping the appointment with the consultant tomorrow will be positive and release some of the "shackles" which are constraining me.

Chin up John, we are all rooting for you.

Best,

I did mean that I am hoping for good news tomorrow, John.  I am really hoping that we will see some of your skills back here soon

Well I still haven't managed to spend any time of note in the shed apart from starting to glue down the platform surface for Chelford Platform 1. I have been too busy in the garden (why is it weeds seem to grow faster than anything else?), spending time in France (for 4 weeks) and trying to sort out a problem with my right eye (which meant spending two days in Sheffield) before having the cataracts removed next month.

I have managed to purchase two more locos, though.  A Bachmann class 37 with sound and a Dapol class 22, both from Rails.  The class 37 sound is very good from what I have heard so far but have only managed to run it on my short test track in the garage.  The class 22 will get a sound decoder when I can get around to it, hopefully next month.

Many thanks to those who have offered supporting comments above.  I am just hoping that when the cataracts are sorted I will have reached the end of my medical issues for the time being. (But I am not holding my breath!)

John, gardening tasks are keeping me away from doing modelling too.  In my case bindweed seems to have found a home, and that is painful to get rid of.  But glad a little bit has been done.  Hopefully successful treatment will have you back in the shed soon.  I am waiting for an operation date, but given my father fell and broke his thigh bone today and the ambulance took three and a half hours to get to him, I'm not expecting a date anytime soon.  If that's the emergency response time, what chance have I got for a relatively routine operation?

At least it will give me time to attack those weeds.

Regards

Michael

You have my sympathy, Michael. Excessive delays in the NHS is one reason I went private for my recent medical issues. Not cheap but at least I got prompt attention, and from those who would have dealt with me in the NHS hospital!

Chin up - take the frustration out on the weeds!
