On the 15th of this month, I gave you all a chuckle (at least I hope I did!) by letting you see a choice of specs I tried while searching for the "perfect" frame for me.
Well, none of the ones you saw here was it - instead, a few days later, I went to a different shop with more qualified staff (and, accordingly, higher priced), and with my mother's and the shop owner's help I settled for this one:
Just ignore my grumpy expression (and rest assured I was feeling anything but grumpy at the time) and the reflection of light on one of the glasses.
Today, I've placed the order, after I spent about an hour there yesterday to have my eyes thoroughly checked and measured and amusing myself and the friendly lady from the shop with my guessing of the numbers she showed me on slides. Honestly, I should start to play the lottery, I was so good at that!
From that lady, I learnt quite a lot about how specs are made and what the technical possibilies are nowadays. There's some trivia now floating about in my mind which I will most likely never need, unless there will be questions about the subject in a pub quiz after the summer break :-)
And yes, I know my hair really needs doing...
