A wee metal bit had up and vanished leaving links unlocked and the watch strap in pieces.
Now... when I say "pieces" I am refering to itsy bitsy teeny weeny little things...
After a few minutes of adjusting distances between my head, the light and the "pieces" on my desk... I succumbed to the obvious and reached for the 1.25 strength reading glasses my brother gave me on my 40th birthday.
This marks the first time in my life that I have worn glasses because I had to in order to see properly.
(and boy oh boy did they ever make a difference!!)
... interesting. :)
