The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

This week Lady Bracknell has been mostly...

... ricocheting off walls and mis-judging the height of kerbs.

There must be a considerable difference in strength between her new spectacle-prescription and the previous one.

Should things not improve soon, Lady Bracknell will have to contact the charming Mr Blankstone (which, if she is honest, would be no great hardship), and ask his advice.

The weather continues charming.

Have to catch up with some of your recent posts M'lady. Having just been roped into watching Coronation Street for the first time since 1979, to be here now is most invigorating, and I feel human once more. Have you ever worn contact lenses m'lady?

Lady Bracknell needs to wear her spectacles only when she is out of the house. If, in error, she starts to read whilst wearing them, she quickly starts to feel nauseous.

Contact lenses would thus be of no use to her. And, in any event, she could not change her contact lenses to match whichever handsome walking stick she was carrying on a particular day.

The Turtle is quite correct. Lady Bracknell has very recently invested in these rather excellent frames.

But the lenses with which they have been fitted reflect her latest prescription, and it is the increased strength of this prescription which is causing problems.

(This will make no sense at all to someone with perfect eyesight, but a new prescription often leads to temporary clumsiness and disorientation until the wearer's eyes adjust to it.)
