Time For Another Eye Test

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 ...


  1. Hi Julie - love your blog - can you contact me (Sandra Chambers) at BBC Radio Derby on 01332 361111

  2. Oops, I've been paying so much attention to the car wash post that I've only just seen this comment. I do know that BBC was on my blog and I told the author of the post - that you were most interested in (Asda island Langley Mill: safe or dangerous?) - at the time.


Be nice, I'm very sensitive.
