Spots Before the Eyes
It's been another bright sunny day. While enjoying the warmth I took a leisurely browse around the local garden centre. I was trying to decide whether to buy another garden bench. Reduced by £30. I like a bargain. I was trying to decide whether to spend £120 in order to save £30. While I was trying to justify this saving I started to see a dark spot in my vision. At first I thought it was from the sun - dazzle. It would disappear then re-appear. It was most annoying. Then I realised I was probably starting a visual migraine. That decided it. I would save my money and drive home while I still had some sight left. Then lie down in a darkened room to recover. The drive home was uneventful. But I still had the on/off spot in my vision. It wasn't till I took off my sunglasses that I saw I had a money spider hanging over the frame. I thought money spiders were supposed to be harbinger of increased fortune. I suppose it was as in a way I was £120 richer than I thought I'd be on my retun home.
