First, I had my eyes tested. 20:20 perfect (with glasses) and no change since last time - good.
Next, on SWMBO's orders I had my hearing tested. This followed a number of "You don't listen, that's half your trouble" incidents. Besides wondering what the other half of 'my trouble' is I agreed to a hearing test. To my delight my hearing is perfect, with a slight dip in the range of listening to consonants. Ball back in SWMBO's court to speak more clearly. The day was getting even better.
Finally, I treated myself to a pair of decent secateurs:
The lady at the check-out at TKMaxx looked at the secateurs, then at me. "Are your eighteen?" she demanded to know. I could have kissed her. My day was complete.
