The twelve-eyed monster

Being very short-sighted, I’m always carrying around a ridiculous number of ‘pairs of eyes’ with me – regular glasses, old glasses for running (my regular ones don’t fit into my Croakies), daily disposable contact lenses for dressy occasions, prescription sunglasses to swap out with my regular glasses on sunny days, and non-prescription sunglasses to wear over my contact lenses when dressy occasions coincide with sunny days. It’s not the whole collection, but it’s not far off.

Today involved a trip to the optician for a double feature contact lens check and eye test, as Boots have been holding my contact lenses hostage while my details have been out of date. This meant that they also tried to get me to update my glasses, but my prescription’s not changed enough that I feel I desperately need new ones, so I’ll leave it until later in the year.

The rest of the day has mainly involved editing for clients, writing, and listening to radio shows and podcasts. I’m now looking forward to a weekend with family.
