One is off to Specsavers today to have one's eyeballs checked for defects.
One's husband has told one that he'll pay :D
I warned him that it could get expensive as I don't get pensioners rates like him, and I NEED 'reactions' and varifocals and a designer name ... or they're not worth wearing.
He never even flinched - fortunately he was sitting down at the time - and managed to croak that 'it doesn't matter' ... gasp ... 'you save your money for diamonds, clothes, boots, Radley bags and jackets ... have I mentioned how many jackets I've bought this year? No? Oh dear, at the last count it was fourteen and I've bought at least four (or six) more since then ... oops.
It's a good job I'm not hard of hearing because he was almost whispering by this time ... and his forehead had started to glisten.
This conversation took place yesterday at the Riverside Park at Newark where we had our picnic - and thanks to the lovely sunny autumn weather - I couldn't see the panic in his eyes behind his 'reactions' lenses ... but I knew it was there hehehehe ...
