I Can See

There I was, minding my own business trying to decide what to do with myself on this wet and gloomy Monday when my mobile rang. It was the opticians to tell me that both of my pairs of glasses were now in the store and I could come and pick them up whenever I wanted. I needed no encouragement; it was on with the shoes and coat and off I went to the bus stop.

Typically, because it was pouring with rain, I had a longer than usual wait for the bus that I needed and it was almost full already and there were about a dozen of us waiting for it. Fortunately I managed to find a seat and I was soon at my destination. Soon, is of course a relative term, because as has been the case for the last couple of years, there was another set of roadworks on the route which involved temporary traffic lights controlling a T-junction with single alternate line traffic flow.

After walking to the opticians, I was seen immediately and out again within 10 minutes; two pairs of glasses, two cases for said glasses, two cleaning cloths for new glasses. As it was pouring with rain, I decided not to bother wearing my new glasses, I would save that treat until I got home.

So, here I am, sitting at the computer, typing this post, and for the first time in ages I am actually able to read what I am typing with ease. I can see again.

Since first reading this post, I've had my head resounding with that song 'I can see clearly now' and it's become quite an ear-worm!

Glad things are back in focus! ;)
