My word this week is glasses and you can read more about that below.

MY WORD OF THE WEEK
Last week I had an eye test and not to my surprise, my eyesight has deteriorated. I was given the choice of 3 pairs of glasses that I would need for normal use, laptop use and reading, or one pair of varifocals.
I chose the varifocals, despite hearing that they are difficult to get used to.
So, for the first time in my life I’m wearing glasses all the time. In one way it’s a relief as I don’t have to get my glasses out everytime someone hands me something to read, or if we are in a restaurant. I had a reading glasses in the living room, in my handbag, in the kitchen and in the bedroom. Now I can just wear one pair all the time. I just need to get used to them.
Not Just Me!
My Little Man also has new glasses. He had a test the same time as me and he has to have new glasses too. He’s used to wearing his all the time though. I bought him two new pairs and he managed to break one in the first few days! I’m hoping we can get them fixed.
When I was growing up I was the only member of my family who didn’t have to wear glasses. My Mum only had reading glasses but my three brothers and my Dad had to wear theirs all the time. My Mum always said it was because I had brown eyes. It’s true that brown eyes are less prone to suffer from certain eye diseases, and are more likely to see better in glare situations, like night driving. I managed to get pretty far in life with 20/20 vision so my sight is down to pure degeneration (and possibly my condition, but that’s not proven.)
Out of my two older kids, the blue eyed one wears glasses whereas the brown eyed one is recently starting to need reading glasses. Out of my three younger ones I have two with blue eyes and one with brown. The Little Man has blue eyes, but he is most like his Dad who also had to wear glasses when he was young.
Anyway, as you can see it’s been an exciting week for me and all I have to talk about is eye colour and glasses! I hope your week has been more exciting, do let me know by joining up your weekly round ups.
