I finally got my hands on my new "granny goggles" [as one of you told me they could be called] yesterday.....how strange they are to begin with! It had taken two weeks from the day I paid for them to actually getting them, which I did think was a trifle slow, but the lady at the optician's said they had had trouble with glazing them. I have them now though!
I'm not wearing them all the time, as they take a little bit of getting used to - I'm breaking myself in, a bit at a time. It feels a little strange to have to be conscious of where I am looking to be sure that I am using the right part of the lens, but I think that once I get used to it, it will become second nature and I shan't have to give it a thought.
I've managed to put half the money back in the savings fund. I hope to have the rest of it put back by the end of the month. I know that the emergency fund is bound to be needed again before too long, so it's good to get it topped back up as soon as I can.
The EFG had a little bonus yesterday when one of her Premium Bonds came up in Ernie's draw - a cheque for £25 arrived for her so I have sent that northwards so that she can pay it into her account. She was very pleased to hear that last evening - she has another cold, so it cheered her up.
Happy Birthday Steph!
