I went to speccy savers this morning for my eye test, three months overdue. I first had a letter in August, then another reminder last week. All is well, a slight change in the prescription in my right eye, but nothing to worry about. My eyes are healthy and I am legal to drive. I said I wouldn't be buying new glasses as the ones I have are just fine. He gave me my prescription to take away with me. The staff are very nice and friendly in there.
I had a free two hour park on my ticket so I went to the bank and paid a bill. They know me in there. They are forever trying to get me to use the automatic till in the wall. I always say no I spend enough time on a computer at home, I don't want to be punching numbers into a keyboard while I'm out. I'm afraid they will have to keep on dealing with me over the counter, except when I want to withdraw cash, which I will get from a simple cash machine inside the bank.
I remembered that WH Smiths have a clearance section in their shop so I had a look in there. They have opened up the upper floor and you can have a mooch through the stock they are trying to get rid of. I found these letters at 20p each, they are erasers. I dug deep to find the letters to make my name. Sadly there wasn't an 'A', but I thought a 'D' on it's side would do the job. Don't know what I will do with them but they are pretty. The 'N' is purple by the way.
A little bit of what I am doing now. This is for the church window. The colours on this piece of fabric are not very bright but the design is what I am looking for. I am using felt tip pens to add colour, the blue flowers were white, then outlining them with back stitch to make them stand out more. When I've done all the background I will be adding more foliage and flowers to give it a 3D effect. It will take a while to do.
I did my walk just as the sun was going down. I love to see the geese flying in formation, chattering away to each other.
Now it's dinner time. I had a large cooked lunch so it's a piece of cheese and onion quiche and some salad now.
