On Wednesday I had to order some prescriptions as I was running low and then went to the local shop to get some last few days supplies. I then drove home again to continue with the packing I have been doing. As I parked the car, I took my sunglasses off and wanted to put my normal glasses on. There was only one problem: they weren't there! I looked everywhere in that little car, including in the rubbish bag, but I couldn't find them anywhere.
Fortunately I have a spare pair, which are exactly the same as the lost pair, apart from the fact that they don't sit nicely on my face. But, it's a pair of glasses nonetheless. On Thursday night however I got to thinking: if I can't find them in the car, which is small and relatively tidy, they must be elsewhere. Like the shop. What if I had taken my bag out of the car and the shoulder strap had caught the glasses and dragged them outside. As they were in a protective covering, I wouldn't have heard it.
So, last night after work, I made my way to the shop to ask if anybody had found a pair of glasses. She looked, but when I said blue covering, she immediately went elsewhere and handed me my glasses. In perfect condition. Someone had found them and handed them in!

Talking of work, yesterday was my last day of it. Just in time as well. So far the weather had always been good. Yes, I have had rain and plenty of it, but never more than that. No fog and no snow. Yesterday we got snow. Only a light dusting on my way up to Glasgow, a bit heavier on my way down to the port again. They are expecting colder weather, so that will mean the roads will get a bit worse. But not for me!
That was the good thing about yesterday, the bad thing was a heavy migraine attack that got heavier as the day got on. The thing that helps me best when I can't take proper medication, is eating. And I have found that boiled sweets are the best. Everything else gets too much after only a short time. Well, I found my too many point with the boiled sweets as well. I didn't eat any dinner on the ferry home and I took a pill the minute I got home. Way too late, so hardly any impact. I took another one two hours later and went to bed.
