and last year when I went to the cinema to see Sex and the City 2 I had to have my friend read the subtitles out to me from the cinema screen.
So I knew they were quite bad but I kept putting it off I just thought it wasn't such a big deal but being a good list do-er I went and got my eyes tested and I am pleased I did, The optician asked me if I had driven to the appointment and when I said I had he told me very firmly I was not to drive home and should not drive anywhere until I had picked up my prescription!
I picked out some nice frames and was impressed with Tesco's prices and buy one pair get one free deal so quite happy. They told me I would have the glasses within a week so off I went home (driving, yeah, yeah I know I'm bad)
When i picked the glasses up I was so surprised what a difference they made to the world I couldn't believe I had been living in such a blurry world everything is clear and I can see, I was so mesmerised by my great eyesight that I followed a car because I could see what the driver in front was doing in his mirror and got lost when I realised I'd turned down a street I didn't know.
I am impressed with my glasses now I just have to start wearing them....
