Broken things




Last week I wrote that my smart phone was in for repairs. I can manage with my not-very-smarty phone, but I miss the other one and I still have about 3 weeks to go.

Meanwhile my glasses are almost broken. I ordered new ones on Friday and I hope they arrive before the current ones finally die. I’m very short sighted and practically blind without them, although luckily I do have prescription sunglasses. It’s just that they don’t work to well in the dark.

And just to make things really fun, I was enjoying a toffee on Saturday evening when the crown came off my teeth. I spent the weekend having to be very careful about what I ate an drank, but luckily the dentist could sort me out on Monday evening.

I’ve been reminding myself these are all first world problems. Imagine needing a dentist or glasses and not being able to get them!
