Sometimes I can be quite forgetful and I lost my glasses last week. As I needed a new pair of specs, I decided to try out a new opticians. I went for an eye test on Saturday. I am short-sighted and have an astigmatism so I require quite particular lenses. There were so many frames and I think I tried on every pair in the shop! In the end, I went for some chestnut coloured frames and after a week of blurry vision, it's wonderful to see clearly again!
