Picked up my new glasses yesterday. Took nearly a month which it never has before. Apparently they use a place out on the west coast now. I wonder if all the optical places do. I must check for next time, would prefer if it was a local or closer to home company. The new sunglasses are cute! Tangerine frames :) Feels like wearing a bit of sunshine on my face! The glasses lenses are a bit bigger than my old ones but i think the frames feel lighter. Wasn't sure i liked them but my hair was in bad shape yesterday and i felt overall blah. Today i've got it washed and it looks nicer and the glasses are more suited.

I noticed, too, when i was trying them on in the optical place, that my chin is distinctly turning into my grandfather's. Eeek! I've always had a dimple in my chin, which is from Dad's side of the family but it seems to be puffing up a bit and maybe sagging a bit with age and it's getting a bit more squared off around the dimple as a result and it looks just like my Gramp's chin! Well, as long as  my nose doesn't suddenly grow and change shape altogether and look like my Gram's, i'm ok. She was a lovely woman but I'm very, very glad I inherited the nose from my maternal grandmother. :)

I've got the UK flights and the Rome flights booked. Need to book a hotel and also a rental car for Manchester. We are thinking of maybe a day trip to see the Chatsworth estate, and are planning an overnight over to Sunderland by way of Durham and on the way back, there's an Open Air museum in north Yorkshire that we may stop into. We have friends in Sunderland and will stay overnight with them.

Must take my new camera out for a test drive this weekend. I've only been playing with it in the apartment.

Saw an ad for a new version of the Kobo ereader yesterday, called the Kobo Glo. It' has some sort of ambient light, not a backlit screen but a front lit one, you can turn the light on and off, though, so it's not on all the time. I don't read in the dark but on the bus in the dark winter mornings, sometimes a bus may not be well lit or standing people are blocking what light there is. It would be kind of cool. If i ever have to replace this one i have now, i will probably get that one. I could buy a little booklight i suppose though it feels a bit silly on the bus. Maybe if it's quite small. :)
