After a visit to the Immigration Museum and lunch with friends, we wandered down to Borders, and I bought these books with one of the gift cards I got when I left my old job:
and then I went and bought some of these (yum!). It's a bit dangerous now that I know where the shop is!
And then I went and picked up my new glasses. Here's a before and after (and you can see my hair cut and colour from a couple of weeks ago as well). In the photo the glasses look black, but they are really degrees of purple, from very dark on the outside to gorgeous, vibrant lighter purple on the inside. I am very pleased.
It is always something of a surprise to me to see how prominent my chin is in photos. There's a reason I don't often like to be in photos!
