Well, Hello there!
What have you been up to the weekend? My husband came home on Sunday from his trip to Leeds, UK. We spent the whole day together and I did not do anything else, including my blog. But, here I am and this means that you will have two to read this week! How lovely.
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you would have seen that I was spoiled by my hubby and received my new pair of glasses. And I absolutely LOVE my new specs!
I don’t know about you, but getting a new pair of glasses is both really exciting, but at the same time nerve wrecking. You see, my Diabetes influences my sight when my blood glucose levels go up and down.
While I was sitting there I notice she removed her glasses. My first thought is “oh hell no, how are you going to see if mine is OK?”, but I remember my friend used to work at an optometrist and they usually wore glasses just for the fashion and of course for marketing purposes. Relax now. Phew. Well, I hope it is only a fashion statement...
So, sitting in that chair all intimidated by this thing staring back at you and the optometrist asking you questions is nerve wrecking. It goes like this:
O : Number 1 or number 2”
Me : (You make me want to number 1 my pants) Uh..I am not sure...uh
O : Let’s try again “this one or this one”
Me : (Oh the pressure is on, in more than 1 way)I think...uh...both....
O : She chips in..“this one or that one”
Me : Oh yah, no this one is way better
Then it goes on like this for what feels like a looong time (it was just 15minutes) and then she turns some nobs on this freakish gazillion eyed monster and then it’s like ”Oh hello HD! I haven’t seen you there. Whoa, wait girl the numbers don’t have to get to the back of my eyes”.
Choosing the frame was the easiest part. Believe or not, but this woman knows her stuff. She picked up 4 and after what felt like 1 minute I was ready to leave and wait patiently for my new specs to arrive.
Any way. I was quite impressed with how quickly I got the SMS notifying me of collection. Well done.
I really truly love my new glasses:
I am going to redecorate our home a little bit after the move (that is a whole other story on its own. I will tell you about it later). We were browsing Mr Price Home in Mooirivier Mall and I totally went crazy..in HD off course because I was wearing my new glasses and everything is just so pretty and the pastel colors and the zig-zag chevron patterns. Oh my word! Pay day!!!! Where are you?!
I saw this pillow and my husband saw my face and he tells me, you can have it. It is just so darn cute and seeing that we are two “nerds” (I mean this loosely because no one is ever a nerd!) now, this just totally fits!
Look at it!
I am TOTALLY a scholar! hahaha
Of course I got some prezzies from the UK. He spoiled me rotton with a bag full of Lush products. It is for Christmas though so I need to hide it so that I don’t use it! it just smells so darn good!
My poor husbands walked A LOT to search for Coca-Cola Cherry (the diet one). He found it at the airport on his way back and bought 6 bottles. BUT he forgot a rule. He bought it before he went through security thus he had to leave 4 bottles behind (I am SURE someone is enjoying my coke). I got two and that is better than none. MAN, I just LOVE diet cherry coke!
Well, to get back to the moving and re-decorating. We are moving, yes. I will post a blog after all this is done. Hopefully I will be able to give you some tips to help you when you have to move someday.
For now this is it.
Please leave a comment below and tell me your specs stories! I would LOVE to hear from you.
Speak to you soon..or sooner!
