So today over on HSMSHS, we're having an SPS (self-portrait Saturday) with a wee bit of a difference.
We have to post a pic of ourself that has a bit of a story behind it.
Well, I have hundreds of pics of myself, but this one says just what I want to say!
I was born with a terribly bad squint and in all my baby photos, this is very, very obvious. I had a operation to straighten my eye when I was 5 and I was SOOOO proud of my straight eyes.
Sorry this is such a poor quality shot, but this is just a tiny part of a larger photo, Anyway, I think you can see how chuffed I am in it.
See the way I'm opening my eyes more than is necessary? I'm showing-off! Lol
However, because the squint was so bad and it wasn't corrected till I was 5 years old, the damage to my optic nerve was too far gone and irreparable, so now I'm practically blind in my right eye.
And do you know when it's most annoying? When I'm taking photos with the digital camera. I have to look through the viewfinder with my left eye, so I'm always left with a lovely nose print on the screen at the back!!
Ghosties and Ghoulies and Long-Legged Beasties......
Unless you were living in another world, you'll know that yesterday was Hallowe'en, when people dress up in scary clothes to try to scare away the evil spirits! Till very recently, up here in Scotland, this practice was called 'Guising', but it seems that everyone now does 'Trick or Treat'.
We had the grandchildren round .....
I disguised myself as a ghostie (can you see me?).....
Tim and I carved pumpkins ... his is on the left, mine on the right -
It's the adults' turn tonight! We're off out, in costume of course, to our local pub for their annual Hallowe'en party!
Hopefully, I'll have photos tomorrow!
