Today was a bit of a disaster to be honest, most of you don't know this but I wear contact lenses. I got my first pair of glasses when I was about 8 and my first set on contact when I was around 17. I LOVE wearing contacts and its not just a vanity thing, my eyesight is bad, like REALLY bad and I just find glasses aren't practical for me at all. They just make life so much more difficult.
However for the last couple of days my contacts haven't been feeling quite right and they have been getting worse and worse each day. Today I came to accept something was wrong and decided to go to the optometrist and sort it out. It turns out I have a virus in my eyes which is causing all the problems *sigh* which means for the next week I will look like this.I am not really happy about having to wear my glasses and it's not just a vanity thing. My glasses prescription is much weaker than my contact lenses, so I feel pretty blind. Plus this week is my last week of classes at the gym before the instructors take a holiday for a couple of weeks for Christmas and there is no way I can attend my classes wearing these, they will most likely go flying across the room. Also work is very difficult - my job is quite technical and requires a lot of work relating to maps and historical documents, not ideal when you can't see very well. I am actually considering taking Thursday and Friday off, but I will just see how I am feeling. It's not really a great Christmas present! I really hope all is cleared up by next Friday *fingers crossed*
Finally I thought I'd share a photo of what I wore today seen as I decided to wear one of last weekends op-shopping finds. A lady in the lift at work was quite taken by this skirt and said it was quite "festive". My hair is totally out of control at the moment, but I am having a haircut tomorrow which SHOULD cheer me up a bit.
