The Christmas Blues….

Walked down Northumberland road today – had to go see the Opticians at Vision Express. Kenny’s official girlfriend’s bum broke my last pair of glasses – whether by an act of omission or one of commission I know not any more.

The entire street was lined with Christmas decorations, and manequinns waltzing to the sounds of well known carols blaring from the speakers on all the shops – Fenwick, M&S and the lot. It is a sharp reminder that its another Christmas away from family.

Well, if I didn’t have to splurge a few hundred pounds on a new pair of glasses, I might have been able to convince myself to part with the money. As it stands, I shall enjoy Christmas vicariously…
