Want: to go to Wimbledon, I’ve never been and I really want to pay silly monies for fruit and cream.

Need: to be more duck like. I have a tendency to let too many things annoy me and dwell on them for far too long. I need to chill out and let the water run off the duck back, get it, and QUACKing is fun.

Miss: My sanity and my patience, if I find one I hope to get the other back too.

Learnt: Sometimes it best to bite your lip, swallow your pride, smile and get on with things.

A job well done – Pachyder What

After the short notice, my operation went very well and I have spent the last 3 weeks recovering. My swelling has quickly gone down and to the outside world it is nearly impossible to tell that I have just had surgery.
