And this morning Mrs Captain Butterfly finally did go to Specsavers, and got her eyes tested. Which was very overdue. They have not deteriorated as much as I feared, though I do need new glasses, but I have cataracts coming in both eyes!
"Don't worry, and not too much sunlight" the young Optician said cheerfully. "You will be fine for years".
I hope he is right. but is there any bit of me still working properly?
On the plus side, we got a lovely little illustrated letter from Harry and we are going to Jacks for supper at the weekend. And, comfortingly, we have more talks from the Circuit Overseer on Sunday. I am going to blog the Tuesday talk as soon as I have finished deciphering and typing up my scrawled notes. It is all about rejoicing in the truth, never taking for granted the wonderful knowledge we have.
I am not sure how I would feel at this stage of my life if I didn't know what the Inspired Scriptures say.
And I must just say how lovely the staff at Specsavers are to oldies and crumblies like myself. No wonder it's doing so well.
