Well done Coca-Cola

Guys. I have to hand it to Coca-Cola for designing a Saba-proof can. So the other day we were in the supermarket and I was craaaaving a coke like crazy. So I got one. After we got home and had unpacked the shopping, I thought to myself (oh so smartly)

"I'm gonna stick this can in the freezer so that by the time I'm done changing into my pjs it'll be nice and ice cold" (yes, I was gonna drink coke before bed. I'm an adult thankyouverymuch)


Two days later, I open the freezer to fish out ice-cream or some other health damaging pre-bed snack when I noticed the can....

Louis, what I feel is correctly, commented that Coca-Cola must've paid someone to test this, figuring there would be some idiot in the world who would forget a coke can in the freezer.

We were too afraid to leave it anywhere where it could do more harm, ie anywhere I would have any say over where I could interact with it, so we wrapped it in a bag and stuck it in a bucket in the spare bathroom.

Lo and behold the next morning it was in tact and on it's way back to being a liquid. After I got home from work I decided, ooooo I'd really like that Coke now...but it was warm by that point. Sooooo, I put it back... the fridge (have *some* faith in me people!) but then forgot about it for another two days.*

However, when I did eventually sit down to drink my coke, not only was it cold, it was surprisingly still fizzy.

Well done Coca-Cola. Well done.


*my memory is comparable to that of a gold fish, and the only way I manage to hold down an admin job is to carry around a notebook at work and write down every-single-thing-in-the-world.

Sometimes, when life has been giving you a lot of lemons, your wonderful husband comes home with a bunch of flowers.

And things are just instantly better.

New Glasses!!

I went for an eye test the other day. The results were shocking really. My eyesight had not changed since my last eye test in 2011. Not.a.single.bit.

In my 16+ years of wearing glasses, every single time I went for an eye test, the results showed my eyesight getting worse. Year. After year. After year. After year. It's a wonder I don't wear some form of binoculars really. You get the picture. Except for one year, when my eyesight actually got BETTER. Apparently that can happen. 

The thing is, every time I tell people that I've been wearing contacts for 15+ years (cuz I hate my glasses and avoid wearing them in public), they're always like "get LASIK!". And my reply is....uuuuuuhhh no. I'm terrified you see. I don't quite know why, but I know that I'm terrified. Also, I had heard that your eyesight needed to be stable for 2 years before going under the beam, and well, that had never happened until now.

And sometimes I wonder whether I've probably spent more money over 15 years on contacts then I would have doing corrective eye surgery. But the other night, I decided to calculate it. 

Thus. If I spend approximately £20 a month on contacts then:

£20x12 = £240x15 = £3600

And, frankly, £3600 is less than, say, two Chanel handbags. Which makes me feel a lot better that, no, I have not spent a small fortune on contact lenses. In fact, if you only count the two years that I have not had a change in eyesight (which is not accurate because you'd have to wait two years before surgery) then you'd get:

£20x24 months = £480.

No one's gonna fix my eyes for that little (and if they could, I'm not sure I'd want them to!). 

So Lasik, you'll have to wait. 


These are my new frames that I get to pick up from the opticians soon (selfies are not our friend).
