There are a few bits and pieces crowding my brain and I need to make room for cocktails.

1. I have trendy new glasses! They're very different from my old ones and rather heavy on my nose, but I expect I will get used to them. They're better than my old ones for three reasons: I can see with them; they have two arms; they're not held on my nose by bits of Blu-tack (Alun, in work, got fed up of me grumbling each time they fell off and he insisted on sticking the Blu-tack on).

2. It's a puzzlement (as the King of Siam said). I have spent most of my life being bemused by it. As a result I have two large furrows just above my nose, between my eyes. They make me look grumpy even though I'm not. But now I've found an answer: polyfilla for faces! It's made by L'Oreal - who I'm fairly sure have dubious ethics but my vanity is greater than my ethical consumer concerns - and I'll let you know if it works ...

3. Estate agents in Crete have made honesty into an art form. In their windows they have advertisements for various 'Old Ruins'. They were too. I tried to take a photo but it didn't come out unlike this one. It seems they have 'Pound' Shops (and Lidl) everywhere these days.

Glad you're back and had a nice vacation. Nice glasses.

Sabine said...

Polyfiller for the face...!? I need that. Let me know how it goes!! :D

And about Pound shops... We have "tal-Lira". 1 Maltese Lira = approx. 1.62 Pounds Sterling. I'm holding my breath to discover what that chain of shops is going to invent on 1st January - when we switch to the Euro!! LOL!

Thanks, Elsie.

Sabine, trying to work out the conversion from lira to pound to euro is beyond me! The 2 Euro shop doesn't sound quite the same, does it?

Just catching up on your posts, Liz. Welcome's good to have you back amongst our midst. I'm glad you had a lovely time...and can now see your keyboard to tell us all about it! ;)

I do find it helps when you have glasses you can see with! I must get some of that facial pollyfilla when I'm over! We have "Everything 1 euro" shops.
