Tales of a wet Bank Holiday


Once upon a time, a wet Bank Holiday would have meant that the house got cleaned or the ironing mountain scaled...but today, knowing that most of the town centre shops would be open I sallied forth to buy some shoes for latest god-daughter's baptism this Sunday.
WHY doe m*o*s*h*u*l*u sell quite so many delicious styles that actually fit my incredibly awkward wide feet with high instep? I suspect that those who attempted to steal my credit last week may have done me a favour, as armed only with a debit card I had to go for the either/or rather than both/and option. Not saying I won't go back for the other pairs, mind...But the pale stone pair, 2nd along, will do quite beautifully - (Caroline - they are to go with that linen skirt you passed this way a while ago...so with skirt as a gift, I feel entirely justified in a quick splurge on footwear). I found a jacket too, but am awaiting HG's return from uni to confirm whether this will in fact "do". Meanwhile, am so excited about pretty shoes it's pathetic, really! I should get out more.

oooh, i saw those shoes and loved them too...then remembered how many pairs of shoes i ahve that i don't actually wear and reluctantly alsonoted that wedges and footplatres are not a good postrual combination.....they are really lovely tho and i think you should get at least 2 other colourways...

glad the shopping trip was at least productive and not just hellish.

Navy AND tan do you think??

They are great, but how can you even think about sandals in this Arctic weather. I've been crouched over my laptop for warmth all day and have just given in and turned the heating on. Beginning to panic about our parish weekend away next weekend, with visions of smashing the ice on the swimming pool. On the other hand, it might increase the number of people walking the labyrinth, which will at least be inside.

We went from Arctic last weekend (I wore a suit under my academic gown for commencement last Sunday and still shivered) to sweltering, I'd wished I'd been thinking more about sandals and swimsuits than I was.

Did you make any progress on "fifty fewer"? I liked your idea of putting three things a day away -- that's the other issue around here!!

But then you knew I'd say that didn't you?
