So I bought a telescope and a painting of a dog at the charity shop.

My most favourite scientist in the world is my doctor. She interprets the results of my blood tests and makes recommendations I  listen and agree with her. That whole experiment with the pork pie making has had the inevitable but unintended consequence of driving my cholesterol levels up and I am going to have to take action to get it down.

The doctor and I talked about her coming retirement and what she was going to do. I was telling her about the importance of getting the ‘toys’ in place. For me this is helping my husband manage his guitar collection. He loves the whole experience of falling in love with a new guitar and then he finds a new guitar and he falls in love with it. My job is to dispatch the ‘failed’ guitars because by ‘hanging around’ he becomes conscious that buying guitars ‘might’ be a waste of money. I actively encourage him to buy them because the falling in love with them gets results.

So I fessed up about the lard, lurpak, goose fat habit I got in to in the last 18 months or so and what I am going to do about it and I told her I was going direct to a charity shop to buy a telescope that I had seen last night and didn’t buy because it was junk. But on the other hand it’s a design of telescope I like and it’s £7 and if I use it and decide I need a better one which is going to cost several hundred pounds then I have made a good choice. I bought dog painting for £2  because it needed a good home and I recognise and appreciate the undoubtable skill in the execution of it.

My doctor told me she wanted to learn wood work and to be competent using tools I told her to go and find a young man who has a furniture making business and buy some one to one tuition.

I am going to go out to buy a joint of beef, parsnips, red wine, king Edward potatoes and cheese for a last hurrah.
