Hello folks!  Back from a hot and sticky city centre via an even hotter and stickier bus.  My eyes are 'very healthy'  and the prescription has only changed a bit - 'not quite as much as would be expected in a person of my age' but I decided to get new specs as the old ones were falling to pieces.  Couldn't fine plain-ish  ones under £85 but that was BOGOF so not too bad - they had them in stock so I took myself for lunch at Carluccio's and then went back to pick up my specs.  (Think the waiter at Carluccio's forgot to put the fizzy water in the spritzer Just as well I was using the bus! ) . 

I now have my new specs on and you all look just a little bit bigger and less fuzzy around the edges
