Today I bought new glasses. For months now I have difficulties reading.

Now this is an event that I’d like to postpone as long as possible as it’s a reminder that I am getting old. But I can’t read my newspaper anymore or read from the Bible after we had our dinner (Tea if you prefer and you’re British).

So within a day or 10 I will be going from a 0.75 dioptre addition to a whopping 1.75! But what a difference it will make! Just so I don’t change into a grumpy old man. It’ll be a change for the better surely, won’t it?

This is me, I am a bit old-fashioned and like old stuff from long ago like British sitcoms such as All Creatures Great And Small for example. I like mechanical watches, fountain pens, vinyl records, bi-focal glasses and old electric model trains. I don't like modern things and I am currently working on an old-fashioned model railway. I follow Jesus and write my poems mostly about Him but I write about life too. Driven by ADHD. Eccentric. You can often find me in the kitchen at parties.
