Weird weather

Living in Manchester I know it is imperative to take an umbrella with you everywhere you go.

But the weather today has raised a slightly more bizzarre question- when should I wear sunglasses?

The answer: always.

Sunglasses protect your eyes from damaging rays that can seriously damage your vision so it's really important that you wear them. However, it isn't really important for you to spend a fortune on them so long as they have the kite mark on them and protect from UVA and UVB rays. I bought a new pair for £3.50 from Tescos ( and very swish they are too, if you don't mind my saying!)

However, you can sometimes feel weird strolling around town with your sunnies on when everyone else (and maybe even you) are cuddled up under cardigans and jackets.  My response to this is to wear them anyway- it doesn't matter what other people think and your health is important. If you are really conscious about wearing sunglasses in less than blazing sun why not embrace quirky frames and make a statement?

*I would put a picture of myself in my sunnies but I have come out in a huge itchy and blotchy rash on my face *
