I’ve had to wear glasses ever since I was in my mid-twenties. I’m a bit short sighted so need them for driving and watching TV, but I don’t wear them all the time. This week I went for my annual eye test, and I had imagine my eyesight had got slightly worse. Instead I was told that I had become marginally less short-sighted. Result. Naturally, that proved to be just the excuse I needed to buy a new pair of glasses, which I needed, seeing as I sat on my last pair, and they have never been the same since. I normally make sure Simmo is with me when I buy new glasses to avoid situations like the last time when I was let loose inside an Opticians and bought a pair of glasses which, according to him, “Dame Edna would have been proud of”. Suffice to say I never wore them, and learned my lesson.
