Need your eyes tested?

Well it’s official: I’m a bit colour-blind. So now I have an excuse for all those hideous combinations of clothing I turn up to work in. And for putting such garish colours onto the Web pages I build.

It was my sister who suggested I go to get my eyes checked. A good idea, since my right eye has been almost blind from birth; I need to keep an eye (ha!) on my left. I did well on most of the test, except for those weird patterns of splodges that are meant to have numbers. I only got the first one! So either I’m a bit colour-blind or the doctor was playing a practical joke…
