Day 977 - I'm Slicker Than An Oil Spill


Shoes: Black spot 'Chuckles' Irregular Choice 

Yesterday I had a trip to the opticians. I've been struggling for the past 4 months to make an appointment, between the buses not stopping near there now and a million other things. However, my eyesight isn't any better or worse since last time, so it wasn't urgent. I managed to resist some new frames which sorely disappointed the lovely lady that works there-as she loves spending an hour or more (no joke) with me picking out fancy glasses! I did spy a lovely purple pair with leopard print legs and quite a sharp shape on the way out that I really would've loved but I already have two pairs that work fine for me and can't afford an unnecessary splurge like that just now. It was quite funny because the optician was like "sooo are these the Prada you're wearing today?", I sheepishly said "erm, no, these are the other pair I got. The cheap pair. I actually prefer them." He was a little perplexed that the plain black £30 frames are my favourites! The thing is I'm pretty blind (have worn glasses since age 5), but I never wear them outside. I just never have and it works for me because I can get by extremely well without them and don't want to become completely reliant on them. So obviously I felt I had to wear them outside yesterday, but I got as far as the bus stop opposite my house (literally a few steps) before I took them off because I couldn't see! Honestly it took me about 2 minutes to walk down three steps because I wasn't sure where they were!  I remember once forgetting to put my glasses on before going into the opticians and I'd walked up the shop floor, signed something at the desk and sat down and when the optician came out he said "I notice you seem to get by perfectly alright without them".  He'd been spying on me the entire time, oops!

Wearing:  Floral wiggle dress ASOS,  polka dot tights Primark, unicorn ring Miss Selfridge, turquoise ring my Granny's, pearl ring gift, flower ring Matalan, green Charming bag Love Moschino.    
Fit: Very small and tight fitting, so I sized up. 4 1/2" heel, velcro strap fastening.
Comfort: No issues with these.

    1. Thank you. There is a similar brocade one, but this one isn't it. It's not a stretch cotton like my others in this style, this one is floaty.

    1. Haha! It's like the angles of the pavement meeting the road etc are all different with glasses. i think because my eyes are used to adjusting outdoors, the glasses make the real angles look weird. True story-the first day i got glasses, I tripped coming out of the shop!!

  3. I'm off to the opticians tomorrow and I'm expecting I'll need glasses - this was what I was told to expect when I last went for an eye test and recently although I don't struggle with seeing things, I've been having more headaches than usual and more fuzzy-eyed feelings.

    1. Hope you got on alright. I've had glasses since I was 5, so am well used to it but think I manage very well without. I know some people who technically aren't as 'blind' as me yet can't see anything other than fuzzy shapes without glasses/contacts.
