juliet: Grown-up Bramble rat with baby Ash and Rowan rats (ash bramble rowan)
There is a slowly-growing crack in one of the lenses in my glasses. Can anyone recommend a cheap place that I can go to in-person for an eye test (haven't had one for a couple of years) and to get the lenses replaced? (have no particular desire for new frames; certainly not enough so to *pay* for the hideous experience of choosing the damn things).

ION: I have spent the last couple of weeks helping [livejournal.com profile] angelmine and my brand new oddson Luca :) He is very lovely, and it's been a great, if intense, experience. (I miss both of them now I'm back in London!) I have been singing to him, viz: Leonard Cohen (Hallejulah has 7 readily-available verses, which makes it excellent for singing babies to sleep), the Magnetic Fields (Papa Was A Rodeo being one of the few songs I already knew all the words to even when massively sleep-deprived the day after Luca was born), and Billy Bragg (The World Turned Upside-Down; indoctrinate 'em while they're young!). I feel I am fulfilling my oddparently duties well.

Have also been to Belfast for a funeral, which was and still is a sad thing.

Now I mostly want to sleep for a while.

Any Aussies reading this, I could do with some advice. I need to open a bank account, and I figure I should also pick up a local prepay mobile.

Banks: is it like the UK (where banks are nationwide, in general) or like the US (where they're state-based)? i.e. if I open a bank account in Adelaide, will this be a PITA when I get to Sydney? Also, any particularly good/bad experiences or suggestions appreciated.

Phones: argh, prepay is horribly complicated. But anyway. Good/bad networks?
