    Thanks all, I'll see what the optician and GP combined say. But if it worsens I'll head over to Western.

    Earliest GP appt is next Tuesday morning. Will see if I can get an eye test somewhere with those new fancy machines earlier than that.

    Also, with the migraines, the vision loss is only temporary. Once the migraine actually kicks in, I can see perfectly fine. This is seemingly persistent, even after the migraine has worn off.

    Eye health question. Pre-edit: I am not looking here for a diagnosis, more advice on who it would be best to go to; GP? Specialist? Specsavers?

    I am overdue a re-test for my bins, but I'm getting a weirder symptom than normal. Usually I know it's time for an eye test when I get more frequent migraines. They are usually triggered more when I'm tired or have been looking at a screen for too long. I get the usual loss of peripheral vision/flashy lights out fo the corner of my eyes, that kind of then, then the headache and sickness kicks in.

    This time though, I have a twitching in my left upper eyelid. Probably more of a persistent flutter than a twitch. One of the regular migraines set in yesterday and has mostly gone. But now i have a blind spot, seemingly restricted to my left eye. It's like I looked at a small light for too long. That's kind of what the loss of peripheral vision is like, but this is more focused, and only in the left eye. The migraine stuff is eye-agnostic.

    What do? Who see?

    +1 for Tebay. Very easy to spend a lot of money in their shop. Food in the restaurant is all local too, I believe. Or at the very least, not fast food chains.

    Also, while it's a massive pain in the dick, try to leave London as early as possible. When we drove back to NI a couple of xmasses ago, we left at 5am. It felt like we were ahead of traffic the whole way to Gretna Green. I hate it when it take 2 hours to even get to the M40.

    The outside of the back wall of my shed looks like an Indiana Jones booby trap such are the numbers screws protruding thanks to the thin wall and me mounting shelves. Taking it as a deterrent to stop people sneaking down the 1ft gap between the shed and the fence.

    Paramilitary informants were labelled "Supergrass", a reference to "snake in the grass".

    Looking to get something along these lines but also with the constellation for ursa minor included. So would need someone to redesign it and then do the work (paid for properly, obvs). Who in London would be good to look at?
