A quiet weekend

This weekend was super quiet because I ended up with an eye infection. I'm not entirely sure how this happened. I've wore contact lenses since I was about 16 and I have only had one other eye infection before, but at that time I had a really bad cold. This time I just noted my eye was irrated a little on Friday afternoon and by Saturday I was at the optician being told I cannot wear my contact lenses for a week and I have to take two kind of eye drops.

I really hate wearing my glasses - I just find them so annoying compared to contact lenses. Plus it doesn't help they need to be updated and so they aren't as strong as my contacts.

But all these eye related problems meant that all of our weekend plans were cancelled.

However we did go out for lunch right after my visit to the optician - to a little Mexican place on left bank arcade and it was so awesome. The food is so amazing and not overpriced - I loved the decor too.

One of the great things about this restaurant was the mini shrine with a whole bunch of handmade jewellery you could purchase. I really loved this purple skull earrings - maybe I can pick up a pair next time I'm there because I am finally going to get paid this week!

Oh no! I've worn contacts since I was 15 too and I don't know what I would do if I got an eye infection, I hope you get better soon!!

oooo I love the little dia de los muertes (sp??) skulls! They are my fave.

I'm sorry you're having problems with your eyes. I wear glasses all the time- I wish I wore contacts, but I just can't imagine putting them in! email me about swapping! ^_^

Pixie - I love those skulls - so cute! Also - I shall e-mail you shortly:)
