Yahoo Today is Thursday and It is eyesight test and shopping down Commercial Road in the City Centre today. At least the weather forecast for today is better than it was for yesterday but they still forecast showers, so an umbrella is a must today. It was a decent nights sleep last night and I woke at 6.30 this morning and looking forward to going down town with Pauline. However I lie around in bed until 7.45 and then get a coffee and go into the lounge to watch the Morning news on TV and to check e-mails and Facebook and also to check the live webcam at Portsmouth Harbour.

So I spend the hour watching yesterdays recorded episode of little house on the prairie and then at 11.00 go and have a shave and get dressed ready for pauline to arrive with the Taxi at 11.30. Once pauline gets here with the taxi, the driver gets the wheelchair in and then off we go to commercial road, Pauline has her Knee strapped up today and she has booked a Physio appointment for Monday at 4.00 pm. anyway she needs to go into Debenham,s while I go to the ATM to get some cash.

Once pauline is out of Debenham,s we make our way down the Precinct to Specsavers for my Eye Test, we do not have to wait long and then I go into the cubicle with the Optician, it is the chap I saw last time in November. I explain why I am here and he does a thorough examination of my eyes and carries out the eye tests.
So I need New Glasses again, I ask if the new lens could be fitted to the frames I got the time before last ( about 12 months ago) as they were supplied by them anyway and are in very good condition, there is not a problem with that but it would be £169.00 GBP to fit the new lens in the old frames or £125.00 GBP to have them fitted in New frames which are exactly the same as the old one,s. Can anyone explain how this can be ? Needless to say I chose the latter.
Well the time is now 5.00, where has today gone, it has been a really good day today thanks to Pauline, I have some sea bass fillets to do for dinner tonight and at 6.30 my son Gervase will be in to see me for an hour so that will be nice. so as it is nearly time for Pointless I will get this journal posted and say Cheerio until tomorrow.
