Vanessa, a good sport, dancing and wearing my specs…

What A Good Sport...

What A Good Sport…

I bumped into the friendly celebrity at the Spectacles Wearer of the Year (SWOTY) and actually persuaded her to try my specs. The glasses (in my picture here) on the right are her own and the ones on the left are mine. She was very happy to swap specs for fun. Then, within days, she appeared on Strictly Come Dancing – not wearing glasses at all – but hopefully she was still having fun. And then she got knocked out of the dancing competition before I could get this piece up.

The good thing about Vanessa was that I knew her. Being a man of a certain age (sorry, I am both), I didn’t know a lot of the other well-known people who were greeted on the green carpet (Specsavers version or the red carpet: neat). I meant to rush into action and post pictures of them all but other things got in the way. SWOTY Spectacles Blog in JB handmadesBut have no fear, I have many images to follow. The evening gave me lots of material. So whilst real glasses commentators write about the latest trendy specs on offer for silly sums of money, you get me warbling on about my big night out…

PS You should have seen me in the SWOTY reception with my daughter’s pocket camera and all the press with their thousand pound lenses (huge) and cameras and camera bags. Did I feel small. No becasue I had two pairs of glasses with me (pictured) and I was wearing my fine Edwardian suit. Look at me…
