I find most of the reading glasses are not a lot of use to me as I am virtually blind in one eye, I have loads of old glasses that I have discarded as my eyes have got worse. I am using a pair of those at the moment but they strain my eyes if I use them too long. I only have to manage until Monday.
There you go then Den...I knew you would like the lappy in bed and you can stay warm in winter..
Oh dear Phil...you really must be careful you know...hope you manage to post a bit over the weekend and don't worry if you make any spelling mistakes... seriously though I am glad that you didn't damage yourself too badly....

I will never again order anything from anyone that uses Royal Mail for delivery,posted Monday from cheshire, still not arrived,have had to postpone job 3 times. Morning Lyn, nice and sunny here, dossing today, going to do the Times crossword with Rachel (barmaid) in the pub.
Signman, I buy a lot of stuff from RS Components (Radio Spares to you), they used to use DHL who were fine for many years but then mistakes began to occur and next day packages would go missing for days on end or boxes would arrive battered and dirty. This time last year RS switched to Royal Mail and the service has been brilliant. I still don't pay anything for delivery and most of my stuff arrives before 9am whereas it would never arrive until after 11am with DHL. I'm touching wood as I write this. RS provide a tracking No. so I can see where my package was last seen. Perhaps you have one? VM
