I fell asleep on my glasses the other night. I thank my lucky stars not my everyday lovely glasses, but my spares which I use for reading in bed and which have - since summer when I sat on them - a leg sellotaped on. I feel like Mr M, an R.E teacher at school who was alcoholic and lived on a boat. His glasses were always taped up. I have had to re-attach the leg for the hundredth time - is there anything more tricky than mending a broken leg on your glasses? They cannot be properly repaired - or I would have done so, obviously. I am putting off getting new ones - they cost a small fortune when you are this myopic - getting the thinnest lenses - in the hope I will be able to wear my contacts again next year. I just have to avoid breaking a mirror on New Year's Eve as I did last year, sat on it, it was on my bed - I didn't have my glasses on - but was relieved it was not my glasses I had broken even although I had cursed myself for seven years. Later, my friend told me to spin round three times to undo the spell.
