Can still hardly believe it.
You may recall that in June, my optician referred me to have my left-eye cataract done, which was refused, so when I discovered that on our return from hols in September I went and got myself re-referred. I'd heard nothing at the beginning of October, rang about a week later, to be told they had queried something with the surgery on 6th Oct -to which they'd responded on 6th Oct and that I needed to give them a month after that.
OK so I rang and queried no reply still last week - said they'd ring back - they didn't. Rang again yesterday - promised to ring back again - they didn't. (they never do when they say that)
At lunchtime (usual time) the postman came - bloomin eck - a Choose & Book letter!!! Rang up wondering how long .... 4th December THIS year! LOL It does take months and months after that to get a date for the op (assuming the agree to d it that it) but it's getting onto the list in the first place I've had difficulty with.
