Bonjour Monsieur!


We’ve been busy recently.

After the disappointment that was my birthday (where we missed the flight to Paris and I cried), we booked again, this time via Eurostar and with VERY careful timings.

We went last weekend, it was beautiful.

We did all of the touristy things – Mona Lisa, Notre Dame, Musee D’Orsay, Champs Elysee…. as well as McDonald’s the Parisian way…

We can’t wait to go back and see all of the stuff we missed:  Sacre Coeur, Montmartre, the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Happy long weekend, hope you’re doing something fab!


PS I haven’t shoe blogged for a while, very naughty. I’m going to start again soon, but probably not every day – that was too much, along with a full time job, netball, running, swimming, birthday parties, cinema….!


The Shoe Rack – Post 4


Woops, slightly late but here goes:

Apologies for the icing sugared toes – just finished icing the cakes!

These proved to be too cold to wear last night – hope the summer returns soon…

The Shoe Rack – Post 2


Hurrah, here’s post number 2.

These are the shoes I wore last night to the pub:

and again, with my jeans rolled up so you can see them properly…. They’re sparkly Reef flip flops. They look pretty but I haven’t worn them a lot so they gave me blisters.

Here’re the shoes I wore to work today:

They’re Fly London tan wedges, about four years old. Very comfy, and about as close to a heel as I get, to work, at least.

See you tomorrow!

The Shoe Rack – Post 1


So, I have a lot of shoes. It’s a bit of a long running joke, although it’s not so funny when we have to move them anywhere…

The Shoe Rack

This is the Shoe rack. I also have a box of shoes which didn’t come with boxes, and the shoe rack downstairs in the hallway:

Not all of those are mine, by the way.  At least four pairs there are Mr Charming’s.

As I have so many shoes, I thought it’d be interesting to take photos of the ones I wear everyday. After a while, I can work out which ones I  wear a lot, and which ones I never wear. I might even remember some I’ve forgotten about!

To kick start it, here are the shoes I wore this morning:

and these are the shoes I’ve been wearing most of today:

SlippersI think I might need to practice the photography…

I’ll post the shoes I wear tonight and tomorrow, tomorrow! Hope you’re all having lovely weekends. xx
