The Optician

Went for a twenty minute opticians appointment today that turned into an hour twenty minutes!!!

Some good news and some bad news.

Good news is that one of my eyes has stayed the same as it was 3 years ago (-7.75) and the other has actually IMPROVED a fair amount (now -8.25 down from -9.25 last time)! Not quite sure how that happened.

Bad news is that they don't do really any frames in my style anymore. I've been recycling my old frames for a few years now because they were getting scarce but my recycling has to end as my frames are all pretty loose, broken, whatever...

So I've ended up going for a brand new paid of frames (gulp) plus have also gone for a pair of sunglasses (partially as I've never had a pair before and partially because they are a 'cooler' second pair that I can imagine wearing a fair bit anyway - also they gave me money off to the tune of a three figure sum! :p)

Unfortunately due to the need for lens reduction and all the otehr bits I have done the final price is NOT cheap. Even after knocking off the money they did. Hopefully they'll be ready in time for my American trip in a couple of weeks. Hopefully I'll have the money to pay for them then too!!!

Now to arrange a dentist trip for more financial headaches...

I know it's not the nicest thing to say but I really can't wait for my inheritance to come through. Then I sit back. Pay off a load of the bills, debts that I owe and then decide what I'm going to treat myself to (holidays to Cuba, Japan or Iceland are possible as is a nice flatscreen HD TV and entertainment system).

Until then I think it's looking increasing likt baked beans on toast for a bit if I want my new glasses PLUS dentist trip!
