my glasses, for the last 3 years, have been reasonably
unobtrusive but they allow me to read the telephone book, the paper, the latest book
and mostly recognise who is talking to me...but not always!
and then suddenly I couldn't do any of those things!
So off to the optician I went.
Searched the shop and could not find frames that I liked that were also comfortable. Knew I could just have new lenses put in the old frames, but they were still really good for driving and I wanted to have a spare pair.... just in case!
The next day I decided to clear out a drawer, you know the drawer, the one where you put everything that doesn't have a home and there it all stays until suddenly the drawer doesn't quite close any more!
At the bottom of the drawer I found a pair of sunglasses that my cousin had given me, as she didn't like them and had never worn them. Obviously at the time they hadn't impressed me either and they were her prescription so I probably couldn't see out of them anyway and so they had found their way into my 'where do I put it drawer'!
So off to the optometrist I went again
Yes of course I could use these frames they said
and so it was done. I went to pick them up and as they were being fitted the young lass started talking about Judith Leiber glasses and I realised that I would probably never have been able to afford these glasses if they hadn't been given to me
When she told me the pretty bits of glass on the side were Swarovski crystals I knew I wouldn't have been able to afford them..... and they really, really look good on.
Well, that is, until I walk along the street on the sunny side and cause chaos to everyone else going about their business as the sun bounces of those pretty little crystals and practically blinds everyone within two feet!!!!!!
But hey I've got some bling!!
