What a strange thing it is that you can be frustrated about something, and then suddenly a solution comes to you and you wonder how you never thought of it before. I have a number of pairs of cheap sunglasses. I am very naughty. I tend to take them off, chuck them un-covered in my handbag, or leave them in random places throughout the house.
I know this is not good. But I can’t bear those little fabric cases which have a drawstring, as the sunglasses seem to just wheedle themselves out of the case. Large hard cases seem so cumbersome and far too big in my handbag. But it came to me only the other day, why don’t I make one? Something to protect the lenses from scratches, but not the size of large canoe.
So here we are, a couple of hours work. I’ll tell you how I get on. I was in two minds, do I go with a dark colour to hide the general nasty grime which seems to afflict things in my handbag. Or go zesty, so that I can actually spot my glasses in the gloomy cavernous depths of my bag. When I have completed a number of chores hanging over me I’ll have a go at version two and decide which is best.
