I am grateful for my glasses (spectacles - what a funny word) without which I couldn't read, write, sew, knit, see my food (yes, I'm getting that bad), decipher ingredient labels, use my cellphone, etc.
However, even with them, I still cannot manage to buy a birthday card complete with envelope. Three times I've done it now: walked out of the shop with a card and no envelope. And the one time I did pick up the envelope (which I'm sure is included in the ridiculous price of the card) Son#5 wrapped the present and left the bright pink envelope at home.
Hopefully DIL#3 will be grateful for the card, envelope notwithstanding.
