Happiness is box-shaped.

In the midst of all my angsty rambling last week, a ray of sunlight shone through the gloom. Having whined previously about not being able to get any anywhere, I had resigned myself to never laying my hands on a pair. However, I hadn't bargained for the tenacity and just-plain-sneakiness of the Other Half. Unbeknownst to me he went poking around on eBay and found the beautiful specimens you see before you. They were meant to be a surprise but he was so excited that he told me the minute he bought them. So that's now three pairs of shoes he's bought me. Could life be any better? Having spent my married life buying shoes only to sneak them to the back of the wardrobe for a few weeks before wearing them for the first time and tutting that I'd had them for ages, god, do you never notice anything about me, having an Other Half who in addition to being everything I never thought I'd have actually buys me shoes still freaks me out a little bit. Not as much as his encylopaedic knowledge of music, his love of processed food and his eerie tidiness obviously, but a bit.

In other news, I have no other news. Carry on.

What awfully wee feet you have. You could probably save a fortune by buying children's shoes.

The smile on SG's face was priceless. I would pay any amount to see that on a regular basis.

...and you can't knock processed food, it is the saviour for those of us unwilling or unable to cook !!!

After all your complaining about cricket and football posts on my blog, and your suggestion that should post about shoes - I do a shoe post and not a peep do I hear from you.

Oh yes, my other half MUST have got me a surprise gift as a lovely romantic gesture at some point ... hang on, I remember ... it was when he bought two tickets for Upton Park that time.

Other Half rocks!
Those shoes are cute. You might need a cool pair of pink glasses to go with them. You and small person can make a statement in pink.

Are you and Small Person now doing mother/daughter shoes? Somehow I thought I got that idea somewhere...

well the other half is getting her some tiny pink converse all-stars for crimbo, and she's particularly attached to her vans, so the force is strong in that one.

amanda matilda - isn't it about 3am where you are?!

and thanks to all - you'll be pleased to hear that the other half now has to transport his ego in a wheelbarrow after all this bigging up. but what the hell, he deserves it. actually, for putting up with me he deserves a shiny medal and maybe a chocolate drop....
