Well Helllllooo ladies (and gentlemen if you’re reading).
Firstly to answer Alex’s question, yes I’ll be staying in Liverpool, until at least the end of next March. 6 weeks ago I started a fixed term contract with the company I had been temping for the 8 months previous, and I :heartheartheart: my job so would be foolish to walk away from something I love to do to nothing. Plus I’m pretty much a nomad, where is home? When I think of *home* nothing comes anymore because I’ve moved about so much and my family no longer live where I grew up...but anyway I guess home is here for now, and it’s about taking the time to both add a personal touch to the flat, and begin the laborious and terrifying challenge of creating a life for myself.
What actually make the effort to meet people and make friends?!? Scary prospect, very! What if they don’t like me...the insecurity runs deep. I don’t drink which pretty much rules out the usual quick and easy way of getting to know people BUT I have joined a young persons rambling club and am slowly getting to know people through that. I guess it’s about taking risks and saying YES to life more.
But anyway...that’s not what this blog is about (not that I really know what it is about any more).
Shoes....of course, when everything else is falling apart there is always SHOES (well usually but not in my case at the moment), that and a nice cup of herbal tea.
I recently purchased a gorgeous pair of LK Bennett leopard print peep toe shoes from a charity shop while I was visiting my mum, they are a size 5...I’m a size 6. Can I squeeze my lumpy heffer feet into them...can I hell, try as I might :o( I knew at the time they were a squeeze but foolishly bought them anyway. Now they are sitting here looking all pretty and gorgeous, and I can’t even take them out to play. The sensible part of me knows I should just ebay them, the shoe princess inside cries out that I need to keep them, even if all I can do is admire and stroke. What do you think?
Also I recently popped by Irregular Choice Cherry. Now it’s got to be said I am not a huge fan of Irregular Choice shoes but when I saw these beauties on ebay I fell in lurve. Can anyone tell me what the deal is with sizing...these are a size 6, my size, but they pinch my left foot after a couple of hours of wear, the right fits perfectly but not the left, why God damn you! I may have to re-ebay :( but I love them, sooooo much *sobs*
Carboot season is back HURRAH! I attended my first (hopefully of many) this year on Sunday. It was my birthday and what else should a girl be doing except tramping round a field rummaging through other people’s personal possessions. Three and a half hours later, and a huge bag of stuff, here are my faves from the weekend charity shop/carboot hunt:
