The opticians

 

 

I have just got back from Boot’s Opticians in Ilford High Road to collect my new specs. One of my previous pairs snapped in two at the nose bridge. So I had to book an eye test where I discovered my set prescription was slightly too high. I also ordered a pair of ‘Sting’ semi-rimless glasses. They cost me an arm and a leg but are really light and well-made. Bravo Boot’s
