Stark Realisation

Two things that have come to mind following a weekend away with the family for my Dad’s 70th birthday.

!. Firstly, my Mother, although she has drummed social graces into us all her life, has none herself and made absolutely no effort to be polite to my partner or interested in anything he had to say. Thank god for my sister, brother-in-law, nieces and nephew who stopped the weekend from becoming a complete disaster.

Secondly, my eyesight’s shot to bits and just doesn’t cut it any more in unfamiliar surroundings. Time to learn how to be a fully paid up member of the blind club I think!


About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
