I am sorry to be away so long, but it has been all work and Medical appointments, with little time for anything else.
I also have an appointment with a Dermatologist the same morning for my Skin Cancer, I have had absolutely no response from my last Specialist, who I had seen for six years, whether he has decided to deal only with private patients now, I have no idea, but I had to make a decision, so we'll see what happens.
Finally on the health front, I had my two year eyesight test last week-end, and found I needed new glasses, which was a relief, because I have been having a lot of problems recently with blurred vision, I should have them next week, I will finally be able to see again when driving! hahaha...well maybe not!
Workwise, because I may in the end be off my legs because of my knees, I have been working every day, to get the fencing done, and start work clearing the land at the bottom of the garden, which can only be described as jungle.
I finished the fencing down to the stream bank, hopefully it will last a few years.
This is what had to be cleared, if I wanted to reclaim the land, of which there is a fair bit, I started off with my billhook and the brushcutter, it was/is hard work, I also had to be careful as our Gardener warned me there are snakes, so far I have been lucky, and not seen one, I hope my luck holds out, but that could be due to something else that I will mention in a minute.
Back to why there may be no snakes, it turns out we have a friend living at the bottom of the garden, you may remember I posted about burrows found, well I bought a wildlife trail camera, attached it to a tree, and left it a few days.
Had anything happened to me down in the abyss, I had no way of calling for help, there is no cellphone signal, and it was too far away to shout for help, so an accident with a powertool, or snake bite, and I was on my own... Not any more!
One problem we have, and if any of you have an answer, please comment
A family of 'Los Carpinteros' better known back in the UK as Woodpeckers, have taken a liking to the neighbours main electricity pole, it's in their garden, but would end up on our roof, just like their tree did, I don't want to harm them, but I could do with them finding another pecking site. Any advice, gratefully received.
