"You were't doing anything important were you? No.
Okay I'll just sniff and try to lick your face then"
After the massive expenditure of spoons yesterday to simply get to the shoe store I thought it only fitting that I dedicate a post to the boots I purchased. I pulled myself together and put on some reasonable clothes, grabbed the boots, and convinced Mr Grumpy to take some photos. I may have forgotten until back inside that I had left my lipstick on the bathroom sink and not put any on my actual lips. And the earrings I was going to wear were next to the lipstick. But hey you get that.
Trying to get photos was somewhat hampered by a photo bombing Great Dane by the name of Freyja. She has a sixth sense for the camera. Plus standing was out of the question today, so all shots were sitting.
"Why don't I just lie my head on your legs."
"Oh you were taking photos. Let me sit in front."
I have been looking for a pair of green boots like these for ages.
Pretty flat so I can walk a bit with my cane.
And they look quite groovy with my compression stockings.
And, after the effort of getting them on, really quite comfortable.
The change over was exhausting.
Who's mad idea was it to get dressed and try on two pairs of boots?
Who forgot they had weak hands with no fine motor skills?
Why that'd be me.
Half and hour later they were on.
"Don't mind me I'll just lie down in front"
It's only in photos that I realise how big she is.
When you live with a Great Dane every day they just look normal size.
This pair have a wedge heel. I can walk slowly in them with assistance,
but they are more for when I am in my chair so not walking.
I may also be starting to fad a little by now.
Groovy stockings and cute grey ankle boots for the win!
I do like the pattern on the toe.
Oh and a cute necklace with robins.
Remembered that, if not the earrings.
