U3A new members coffee morning; a few recruits for my groups.  Took Katy for eye examination which took nearly 2 hours total at Grand Union Village. Numbers slightly down at prayer meeting but pleased to have men from Euro Presbytery there. found Botox has relaxed the bladder so I need catheterisation.
