Many thanks for your best wishes, Nigel, Lenoir, Anita, Julie and Daisy. :D Much appreciated. :D :D :D

'Tis a waiting game at the moment. The resources are limited, and a points-system is in use to ensure 'fair' treatment of all those in need of a cataract operation. The dice seem to be loaded against folks like me who have already had one successful cataract operation. A major goal of our NZ health system is to keep us vintage types living in our own homes without costly home help. I find driving the biggest challenge, 'cos judging distances can be a tad difficult with only one good eye. And I've had :( to reduce the time that I spend each day reading my computer screen.

I'm most grateful that cataracts are an operable condition, and that I live in a country with a decent public health system.

Good luck, Aurélien. I hope you manage to get your second cataract operation arranged very soon and that it is as successful as the first one.

Thank you, Eddie. :D :D

The ophthalmologist who saw me on March 8th issued the mandatory warning that, just occasionally, cataract operations can go horribly wrong, but 'tis worth the risk to try to regain proper binocular vision.

I imagine there is a risk in every operation (even crossing the road isn't risk-free). It is all about weighing up the benefits and do they outweigh the possible risks. I would do the same as you, Aurélien, if in the same boat. Good luck and I hope you don't have to wait too long.

Ah yes - I remember Lenoir saying that the Enid Blyton Society was mentioned in that book. Thanks for the scan, Sixret!

But Nigel, 'twas Lenoir whom we must credit with launching this thread.

You will notice that the links here to Cherrys illustrations uploaded over on my Photobucket webpages can no longer be relied upon to keep working, so much of my contribution will :shock: likely vanish.

Yes indeed :). ( On leap year day 2008 I see).
But you've made the biggest contribution and I remember looking at your links and maps etc. I know that links on photo sites sometime disappear, but hopefully not.

A somewhat belated Happy Birthday, Lenoir.

The owners of Photobucket are changing over to a charge system for 3rd party hosting. Unless I pay Photobucket a fee, websites where I have placed links to images that I have uploaded to Photobucket will :( now have these links blocked.
