It's funny how often we find symmetry in life.......well I do!
Two weeks ago my better half 'eL' went to have an eye check and discovered that her distance vision was a little off and it was time for glasses. This of course turned into a style exercise which wasn't cheap......but they look fabulous darlings!!!!
Last week I had an eye test (because I thought it was time.....) and who would have guessed....my distance vision is also a little off and I need glasses........another style exercise which cost even more (not my fault....she did the choosing of frames!!)
It occurred to me that I'm the last of my siblings to need spectacles.....some comfort I guess. The interesting thing about my vision is that it's above average for distance but it is a little blurry at the extreme range so technically and legally I have really good vision but I still need glasses......apparently my brain is too good at working out what I am seeing and compensates for the blur....an interesting dichotomy!
So now we will both be able to clearly see how little money we have left after buying glasses.......typical........:-)
