I've finally had to admit to myself that my eyes are not as good as they used to be. Last week I went to get my eyes checked, Mum has glaucoma so she has been on at me to get it checked out so I went to the optometrist with trepidation. As it turns out everything is fine except that I need reading glasses as is consistent with someone of my age.
So now I have 2 pairs of reading glasses that I have to get used to carrying about and not losing! I rarely pay much for sunglasses as I have a habit of putting then down and leaving them about. I decided to pay a little extra above and beyond my private health cover to get a couple of pairs of designer frames as they just looked so much better on. Above is my red pair and I have a more sophisticated pair of black frames too.
I can now see the loops in the crochet when the yarn is black, and it is far more pleasurable to crochet now. Also I have discovered that perhaps I am not as bad at taking photos as I thought! And a large percentage of photos I thought were blurry and unfocused are in fact pretty much right!
PS: Thank you harry potter and dr who because glasses are now cool especially in our geeky household ;)PPS: Also now I will be able to read maps and see fine details in the artworks while in Europe!!!
