Computer Goggles

On Friday, the optometrist told me that all the staring I do at the computer screen has actually been harming my eyes (what??) and so this afternoon instead of reading other peoples’ blogs or doing ‘research’ on the internet or even doing any writing of my own, I have been sitting in the lounge room painting my toenails and looking out the window at the birds squabbling in our bottlebrush tree, which has just come into flower. The lorikeets have most of the territory and they have been defending it most raucously. They can’t stand it when any noisy miners turn up, but they will tolerate some of the tiny little brown birds who have a very pretty song.

I’m hoping my new glasses will be ready before I have to go to work on Thursday. I don’t know if I can hold out for two whole weeks of work with no play on the internet. Either way, I'm pretty sure that blog posting will be spotty until I get them.

have you tired of that perfect blue sky yet? every picture you put on your blog seems to be an amazing shade of blue....mine at the moment is that glary grey-white, the type of sky you can't tell where it ends and looks as if it is going to engulf the high rise buildings. aaahhh smogy london. claire

Our local weatherman has been getting quite cute about it. He opens his spiel with "Well folks, I'm running out of ways to say it's going to be fine and sunny again tomorrow"

But no, I'm not sick of it yet. But I'll let you know when I am.
