The World versus Roo: World 1, Roo 0
Photo: These might be my new glasses
This morning... I overslept.
So a mad rush to get ready for work.
Snapped the leg of my glasses clean off.
Tried to glue it, but no luck.
Found 6-year old glasses and put them on.
I look like my granny, but not in a good way.
I think. Maybe. It's all a bit blurry, to be honest.
Got into car, and was halfway up the hill when the sun-roof seal apparently gave way and I got drenched in accumulated rainwater.
Stopped at end of road to dry off and consider my options.
Drove to opticians.
Sat in car park waiting for the shop to open.
Rang work to explain I had a broken leg and couldn't see properly.
Or words to that effect.
Handed glasses to optician.
"How old are these? 2007? Oh no - they're too old we can't fix them."
Too old at 4????
Saw myself in mirror wearing granny glasses.
Chose new glasses.
They might even be quite nice.
At least they are heading in the right direction and don't make me look 92.
I just have to live with the 6-year olds for a week.
There will be no pictures of me til then.
My car's "toxic fumes" warning light has come on.
Have booked MoT test for 2 weeks' time.
I will try not to breathe til then.
I had to park at the other end of the universe because I didn't get to work til 10am.
It is still raining.
So I am tired-eyed, asphixiated and damp.
It is NOT a good day.
