I have worn glasses since I was 18 and have worn them full time for the last  10 - 15 years. For me to buy glasses here in New Zealand  its really expensive, I have progressive lenses with transition lenses , anti glare filters , and am long sighted in one eye and short sighted in the other with an astigmatism thrown in for good measure. The average cost of glasses here costs me between $900.00 to at least $1200.00.

Just  recently I needed to get my glasses replaced and had the most gorgous frames, I looked in to finding out how much it would cost to switch out my lenses in these frames and was just appalled at how much it was going to cost. To just get the lenses replaced it was going to cost me a minimum of $400.00 up to just under $500.00 and that was going to 3 or 4 different places, some of them were were supposedly budget freindly outlets that are in most shopping malls.

When I was a kid , my nose was constantly in a book , if anybody in the house didn't hear or see anything from me for a while they knew I would be curled up on the floor in my bedroom with my nose in a book.

As I got older and discovered the world of Internet /Computers my book reading decreased incredibly. To the point where its now a real treat to sit down and read a book. I have hundreds of books, mostly cook books and then books that are very different to those, like Craft books,historical fantasy, sloppy romances and other books mainly  in the same genres.

They seem to feel that the entire world revolves around them and that because a person maybe older than them that they know nothing about life, and that their ideas, thoughts etc are invalid and not worth thinking about. That because people earn different amounts of money , if somebody earns less than them they are not worthy . That because they ( the nasty young women) spent more money on X,Y,or Z, clothes, makeup, cars, weddings etc that anybody else that spends less or prioritises in different ways to them must have really bad choices and therefore not being good enough. That when other people make a minor mistake its their role in life to point it out and make it a really big deal in a public kind of way. And that its perfectly ok to talk trash about other people be it true or not.

Well mean and nasty just does not cut it in the real world  and what goes around comes around. These mean and nasty young women just end up being mean and nasty old ladies with less freinds and more wrinkles than their countaparts, elders and peers. So to those mean and nasty young women , change your attitude on life and you will find that you will grow old gracefully with beauty and charm and freinds and people who love you and love being around you,

instead of sitting along in your rundown old single bedroom flat looking down in to the dregs of your rescued cheap plonk bottle that you stole of the wino laying in the doorway of your past favourite expensive dress shop

I hate the end of Summer as we go in to Autumn that season that marks the beginning of shorter days, longer nights and cold weather barrelling us in to Winter faster than the Jamaican Bobsledding team on the winning straight.

Summer is my most favourite time of the year, the smells of the new grass and summer fruits and veges and bbqs,waking up early to the natural light sliding in through the window and seeing it get dark much later on in the evening. Enjoying Christmas day in the sunshine, wearing short skirts and open shoes, and feeling the warm sun on your face. Eating lots of fresh light foods, fresh berries and stone fruits and tomatoes off the vine.

Autumn is a really pretty time of year as you watch the  leaves change colour slowly stripping the limbs of the trees bare as they prepare for the long cold months ahead its just the winter ahead that fills me with sadness

I hate being cold , love the idea of being snuggled up with my honey under a warm duvet , and having hearty meals like casseroles and soups to warm up , its just the thought of being cold, getting caught in winter rains, driving in thunderstorms, it being so dark early in the mornings and so early at nights that rubs me up the wrong way.  Knowing that  on TV it all revolves around Rugby on major tv channels, that people dont venture out to the market as often because its either too cold or too wet or both. That some people dont adjust their driving to the conditions of the road when its slippery and wet.And that there is many chances of ending up soggy and wet because you have just got in a rainstorm as you leave your car to go somewhere.

Whats your favourite time of the year and why do you like it ?
