When you just love a bargain
My optician took one look at my pristine spectacles and said they were quite retro. Retro to the extent that they are almost coming back into fashion.
Unfortunately, I still needed a new pair. We whittled the shop's stock down to two options. One was lighter than the other which, I was told, meant I wouldn't be so aware of wearing them. (As you may have guessed, my ability to wear glasses so far is quite minimal, so I wasn't sure that this should have a great influence over the choice.)
Anyway, I decided just to take a deep breath and go with the ones I thought looked better. Good job too: they are going to cost me £90 all in, whereas the super-duper light ones were £260 before paying for the lenses!
Some decisions are a lot easier, and a lot more pleasant, than others!
