Genetics, can't beat 'em really.

Both Nw and I are short-sighted and I have an astigmatism.
Guess what??? Torbyboy is also short-sighted with a mild astigmatism!
I know, I know big shock really.

Well it kind of is because neither of us needed glasses until very early teens.

It was picked up in a standard screening they do in preschools to the 4yr olds. Picking it up before school is always useful.
A visit to the lovely Paedeatric Opthamologist (if you need to go to one, I really do recommend Annandale Eye Care ) confirmed the results.
He was very grumpy waiting for the eye drops to dilate his pupils enough for the doctor to have a really really good look. Bright and fuzzy world was not a winner apparently.
The glasses we then ordered from the Optometrist arrived really quickly (ordered Thursday, picked up Sunday morning) and he's been wearing them ever since.
I think the world not being a bit fuzzy is a novelty for him. Also been told by everyone that glasses are awesome has helped a bit :)

In other news, we voted and apparently we were two of many in our electorate who turned into greenies. Grayndler is now a not-so-safe Labour seat. Yay.

I walked down to Oliver's school-to-be to vote because the weather was absolutely glorious, filled in a bunch of boxes, had a sausage inna bun and then kept walking to the shopping centre. Cool but pleasant mornings with blueblue skies and trees and flowers being all explodey with flowers and leaves and nice houses to look at. It makes me very happy.

Oooo, and babies have been born! One was planned in advance and one was 9weeks early. Both happy and healthy by all accounts. Yay for more babies in the world. Especially well loved and wanted babies.

My biggest niece turns 6 today and tonight there will be ninner at 'The Restaurant' in celebration ahead of the party of much girliness on the weekend.

So now I must go and find an awesome card to go with the one that Torby is making in preschool.
