Oh my goodness, I came home from the hearing test with a hearing aide in both ears and, as I wanted to dive in at the deep end, I took the long way home via the shops and post office. The beep on the pedestrian crossing sounded so loud and I could hear the postmaster behind his glass screen, but when I reached home and toured my garden, the tears were rolling down my cheeks. The birds seemed to have sensed something was up. They were serenading me from every tree. The wind had dropped but I could hear the gentle rustle of the bamboo in my bamboo grove. I have turned down the TV three times so far and I can hear my footsteps in the house even when I am walking on the carpet. Exciting times.
