It’s been a full day.

First thing this morning (9 AM, which is first thing enough, for a Saturday) I had an opticians appointment down in the city centre. The last few times I’ve had my eyes tested, I’ve seen the fat, old, ugly optometrist who’s scared me monkeyless by telling me that my test results are a good indication of incipient glaucoma, and I should be careful to have regular checkups. This morning I saw the young, attractive optometrist who told me that my test results are typical of someone who hates eye tests, and that I have no signs of glaucoma at all.

She also told me that in time I’ll need to consider varifocals, but I’m too young to think about that at the moment. I can’t remember the last time I was too young for anything!

Then on my way back to the bus stop, I passed through Matalan and bought a new pair of shoes! Four bloody quid…but I suppose you have to pay that kind of price for quality.

The rest of the day was spent at a 4×4 show in the New Forest, where I spotted my next car:

To give an idea of scale, I’m 5’7″ tall (170 cms), and the top of the door mirror was on my eye level. Unfortunately it was 37000, which was rather more than I had with me at the time.

I rounded off my day with a visit to a trig point, near which I found an odd metal stud set into the ground: Anyone know what this is?

Finally, I was busy on the phone with Jenny this evening, as a result of which I missed seeing the gorgeous Katie Derham in a swimsuit on the telly. Wombat!!!
