Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!

Posted by MANDI at 9:28 PM
I'm a total shoe addict. Many years ago, before I had children who needed all my spare money (and more!) spent on them, it would be fair to say that most of my disposable income went on shoes. And champagne. In fact when my then almost-brand-new-boyfriend and I moved in together and he came to my place with his trailer, all ready to load me and my belongings up and into the other end of town, he was ever so slightly horrified to realised that it would probably take four trips to move all my household possessions and another full load to move my shoes. Luckily it didn't totally put him off.

Since then circumstances - both work-wise and financially - have dictated that I spend far less on shoes and as a result I have fewer shoes to play with. I still have more than completely necessary (but don't tell Hubby I said that) but it doesn't stop me drooling and lusting over shoes. At the moment I'm on the hunt for a comfortable nude platform or wedge that I can wear at work. I have no idea what clothes I'm going to pair them with, I just know I want them.

Tonight I clicked on one of the facebook ads that showed up in my sidebar. To quote Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman: Big mistake. Huge. I found me an online shoe store and have wasted the past ninety or so minutes drooling over pretty shoes. And deciding whether they are going to be my first ever online purchase. Look at these and tell me you're not falling in love, just a little bit.

A male flatmate called me Queen of Shoes back then, know how you feel :-)
Though... it had stopped, kinda! I got lazy about shoes!
May be the weather. Every summer it is the same, blisters all over. Now Ingo (!!) told me there is a cure (what a silly man, huh?! LOL!) - some sebum/tallow from deer ( - German only)

Summer - I can´t wait. And maybe add in some new fun-shoes!
Bet Ingo makes it, so I look kinda positive into the future.
Your package still hasn´t arrived, btw! Did it get lost?

@Nunn-Chux - nope, Hubby does all the time and if I want something he'll get it for me actually doing it? Nup. And PS even though I'm not a fan of green I love, love, love that one :)
@Iris - the post office said it would take 8 to 10 weeks to go by sea (cos airmail cost made it ridiculous to even post) so should be there pretty soon... I hope!

Or it got stuck at the customs duty... so: Nothing to worry about, glad to hear!

There's nothing in it that should hold it up at customs (unless the customs people decide they want it for themselves!!). And the box is a good size so it shouldn't be too easy to just misplace. Hope it gets there soon.
