We went into Cambridge early yesterday for eye tests. I have at least another year without specs, although I am now a little short-sighted. Wen has plumped for some varifocals and prescription sunglasses. Some part of that was free, but it still ended up over £600.
Then we met Donna for lunch, did a little clothes shopping in John Lewis, and went up to Ryman’s for a scrapbook.
When we got back to the car less than 5 hours later, we discovered that Cambridge County Council demanded SEVENTEEN POUNDS before they would let us leave. SEVENTEEN POUNDS!
