March-ing on!

Home now after another busy day at the practice and I’m thinking about how March has been another busy month for us at P+B!

Right at the start of the month my beautiful sausage dog, Honey, had spinal surgery as she lost the use of her back legs due to a problem with the discs in her back. Since the surgery, Honey has been coming to the practices to me while she recovers. Luckily she’s been so well behaved and everyone she’s met seems genuinely pleased to see her! I was worried whether the patients would think it strange to come to the opticians and see a dog there, but everyone welcomed her so well that Honey is now a permanent feature at Llanishen!

Also this month, Clare did some filming with Marie Curie UK about the benefits of the Dementia Friends scheme, and my very good friend Mel was even roped in at the last minute! Bless her, Mel was there for her routine eye examination and very kindly agreed to be filmed as well. I took Mel for a lovely afternoon tea at the local tea room as a thank you!

We’ve started to see some lovely flowers coming up in our new gardens at Llanishen and I feel so fortunate to be able to enjoy time in the gardens in between patients.

My very worst moment this month was having to call our bank and being in a call queue for three hours during a busy clinic. That was a real low point and was the catalyst for us deciding it’s time to switch banks! So, bye bye Co-Operative Bank, and hello Starling!
