So today the glasses will be arriving, I can't wait to be able to see again. The story behind and reason for the need for new glasses is a complicated one.

When we arrived back in the UK in July, we travelled up to the North East of England to visit Julia's parents, We arrived on a Saturday and after a phone call we made a booking at a local branch of a national chain, for the Monday morning.

We turned up and kept our appointments and our eyes and ears were duly tested. As we were not going to be there to collect the glasses, we arranged to have them delivered to their Poole branch.

We arrived, in Poole and waited for their delivery and they duly arrived, were fitted and Whoa! (They didn't focus properly, there were blue flashes next to every vertical line and were of no use at all. We were moving on...

I tried to use the glasses as I drove to Guildford to visit our son and his fiancé... every car that approached us did so with accompanying blue lights, as is if every car was a police car or ambulance. After about , I gave up and changed glasses back to the old prescription.

With only two days until we got the ferry We decided to get my eyes retested in France, however, fate took us by the hand and elongated our stop in the UK for another 3 weeks as Julia's dad, sadly, passed away.
