"A big thank you to everyone at the Montefiore hospital who looked after me so brilliantly yesterday when I had a minor knee op. At Sawyer & Co we pride ourselves on our customer service and they clearly do at the Montefiore too.

We are really fortunate that people in our city have access to such an outstanding facility looking after both private and us NHS patients alike.

At one point the anaesthetist asked me about the property market although I'm not sure she quite expected my long (and not doubt rather boring) reply. Luckily she put me to sleep before I managed to do the same to her.

When this bandage comes off I'm aiming to get fit and ready for the AITC charity warrior obstacle mud run this autumn. Fingers crossed."
