Simon (Paul) Martin, husband to Sinéad, Victoria’s only brother and Paul and Patsy’s only surviving child had a bicycle accident about 3 weeks ago – he was very keen cyclist.
Unfortunately he went over his handlebars in a freak accident and never regained consciousness. He was wearing a helmet, but still suffered catastrophic head injuries, from which he could never recover.
Simon was taken off life support on Friday afternoon and passed away early Monday morning.
As a mark of respect, this practice will be closed on Thursday and Friday of this week.
We will be open on Saturday morning as usual, though we cannot offer eye examinations on that day.
Business as usual next week, life has to go on after all, despite how hard it may seem to be.
Apologies for any inconvenience, but how much tragedy can one family have in 9 weeks?
In the movies they always say that it isn’t a tragedy to die doing something you love, maybe that is true, but it doesn’t feel that way for those left behind.
I really do sincerely hope that this will be the last unexpected practice closure for a very long time!!
We usually have a late night on Thursdays – open until 8.30 pm, usually.
Due to a conflict of appointments elsewhere, obligations elsewhere and staff holidays we have no-one who can be here tonight to man the fort.
Apologies for the inconvenience, but for tonight only, we will be gone at 3.30pm. Was intended to be 5.30, but another change of plans.
Hopefully this will not be a regular happening, it is the first one since we started the late nights over 2 years ago, but tonight there is no other option.
Again, sorry for the inconvenience,
Christmas Time, again.
As usual we are going to be closed between Christmas and New Year, our excuse being that we can get no deliveries until the New Year. Though that is actually true!
This is the only time I am personally guaranteed to get some time off, and that time at home is very precious, particularly this year.
We will be having a staff Christmas meal on Friday 21st in the afternoon, so we will be closing at 1pm, or perhaps shortly after? on that Friday, and we will be gone until January 3rd.
(Scottish people are genetically unable to work on January 2nd).
We may see you in the Bailie Hotel on Friday afternoon, but after that we will see you in 2019.
Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays to be more politically correct?
Ho Ho Ho!
Happy Holidays from Ian, Neasa , Sandra and Victoria.
(once again, in alphabetical order!)
Many thanks to all of our clients – no business is anything without you, after all!
We wish you all a happy and healthy Christmas, and onwards to year 2019 and beyond!
Please, please remember to NOT sleep in your contact lenses- it may have been a great night out, but your next day or two in hospital may not be so great? It is not worth it – for more information in case of an emergency, please click this link.
I took a call about three weeks ago from a lady who wanted to order contact lenses and solutions for her son.
I was certain that I knew who she was, and that it was her son’s name I wrote down, but when we called her to advise that the lenses were here, she asked Sandra if it had been her son who ordered them, as she had not!
At the time I thought I knew who I was talking to, but obviously I was wrong, and I ordered contact lenses for the wrong person.
We have thought through every son with initials D. C. Just in case I wrote down the wrong name, but in my mind I was sure I knew who I was talking to.
If you ordered lenses for your husband, partner or son on 28th November and you have not heard from us, please get in touch.
Completely our (my) fault.
As usual we will not be open on Monday, obviously – it is a bank holiday! But we also have not (for a very long time) opened on the Saturday of a bank holiday weekend.
We will be “gone” at 5.30pm on Friday.
We hope you have a great long weekend, and we will see you on Tuesday – business as usual then!
