It has been a while since I posted. *checks catalogue of excuses* Oh yes, I've been sick. And away. And descended on by family. Three's enough, right?

Took a little trip into a nearby town today and visited Waterstones.

Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie
and
The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey.

Sword was hiding downstairs with the new books rather than yelling at people from the shelves, but a very helpful Waterstones employee brought a copy for me. As it was in the get one, get another half-price offer, I bought Gifts to go with it.

We didn't have time today to do any charity shops or the market as we'd spent much of the day taking my father to the Saturday eye clinic at the hospital. Which involved a lot of sitting around and waiting.

At least we know now why the hospital kept assuming / asking if he was diabetic--he has a retinal growth very common in people with diabetes. Without having diabetes. They're going to send a letter to the Big Hospital in the Big City to see if it can be removed. In other news, he got a prism for his glasses from the Orthoptics people on Friday that really seems to be helping with his double vision. Apparently it's caused by fourth nerve palsy.

In other other news, any progress on treating my wonky eye seems to have stalled. But I'm seeing the GP for my drugs review on Monday so I'll ask then.

Hmm, this hasn't really been about books, has it?
