Memorandum Monday enters the year of the monkey

A big wave to you all on the start of the Chinese year of the monkey – disappointingly there are no public celebrations of this in Edinburgh – when I lived in Auckland there was a fabulous lantern festival in a park near where I worked.

As I settled down to watch the rugby on Saturday I had a small hope that my new thing for the weekend would be watching Scotland beat England for the first time – but it was not to be.  I did enjoy the rugby though, in particular the hard fought draw between Ireland and Wales on Sunday.

So my new thing to share is actually from just after I posted last week – my new glasses

glasses

the frames are a purple / green ‘watercolour’ effect.  They are very light and fit well and there was no adjustment in the seeing – in the past I have sometimes had a bit of adjustment to distance and angle for reading and the computer screen.

Hope you all have a great week

Oh, I like that watercolor effect on the new glasses! I'm thinking about a new (extra) pair this year & want to find some FUN frames.

Oooooh very nice! and glad no deterioration. Now, how to get me to go to the opticians?

Pretty glasses. It's always encouraging when there's no prescription change required.

Nice glasses, they really suit you.

Very smart and as a glasses wearer myself I know lightness is a great asset too.

They're lovely (and what a great camera angle to show them off). Nother thumbs up for lightness from me

Have a great week

Happy Chinese New Year from this monkey!

So nice when there is adjustment in getting used to new ones. Haven't heard word of anything on board for Chinese New Years and nothing special is on the menu. I remember when we were in Auckland 2 years ago that the hotel was all decorated up and fireworks were set off by the tower.

I like your new glasses. I have varifocals and chose a cheaper brand as my others are so expensive. I hoped they would not be inferior but I adjusted to them easily and don't notice the difference a part from about £200 in my pocket.
