Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s an aging suburban mum visiting @specsavers on a Saturday arvo to get her eyes tested. Seems my prescription of just three years ago is now good for nothing. Case in point: last night I read my book using the flashlight on my phone ... whilst wearing my glasses. So now I’m 2+ in both eyes and my long distance has started to go too. I was offered bifocals but just couldn’t go there. Denial seemed the most logical response.
I didn’t think about this until right now! I feel quite strange about it. How did this happen?! I’m still 16 at the Mardi Gras having necked a bottle of Lambrusco with @juliaw1978 and @nelmowat. I’m still 20 in the Union with @helen1haigh. I’m still 25 saying goodbye to my mum. I’m still 33 working with wildlife in Malawi. As Ferris Bueller once said “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while you may miss it.” Here’s to looking around once in a while and creating memories. Who’s joining me? #memories#makingmemories#agingdisgracefully
