I have been short sighted since I was 7 - that's about 14 years ago now!!! LOL - and have had contact lenses since I was - a bit older than 7 + 14. However, as the years slipped by I had to wear reading glasses too. I reckon it's a Labrador and white stick next.........Anyway, I lost my left contact lens on Saturday night right outside the bathroom door, but can I find it, can I heck. Hence the 'struggling to see' bit.
I've ordered a new lens but goodness knows when that will arrive - today I hope because things are getting desperate now. I can't drive, can't see the tele, most objects are either blurred or in duplicate and what I do try to do has to be done with my nose almost pressed up against it - such as this post!!
Still, it's a minor inconvenience for me I suppose compared to folk who don't even have the ability to focus on anything so I must stop my moaning and get on with it.
I tried to take a photo of a clematis that has flowered for the first time - it being only a 2 year old plant - because the petals actually glisten in the sunlight and are the most beautiful colour I have ever seen. This is the best one I could manage but the glisten doesn't show up:
It's not fully open yet and the change in the weather may just spoil it but I've had a thrill to see that flower and there are a couple more to come. I just love flowers.
