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?
