Plan, schman

Don't worry, I've got some new shower gel. Everything's going to be just fine.


And just to clear one thing up, I have no intention of stopping blogging. I feel nothing but gratitude for the tremendous friendship and warmth that this community of ours provides. I love the sense that you are never alone. Whatever you're feeling or going through, there are souls out there who've been there. And they share their thoughts, experience and wisdom freely.

And besides, who else am I going to show my new red boots to at 10 o'clock on a Sunday night?



Bugger the plan, let's go shopping!

Ali, how many times must I tell you that you can't show us fabulous shoes without telling us what the ARE. Really! You are the worst kind of tease. You're a shoe tease. ;)

Those are some damn fantastic boots. Nothing like shoes to lift the spirits.

That is interesting shower gel! Those red boots are fabulous and yes, it is good to know that we can share such things at odd hours of the day and night--it is so lovely to know we have friends out in the world.

Great boots and oh, where's that shower gel from? Would be a great Christmas present (sorry, sorry, I know it's all meant to be lovingly handcrafted but there are only so many hours in the day!)

Victoria said...

Ridiculous boot envy emanating from Singapore should soon be felt in England...accompanied by a loud cheer you are still my top blog-girl who can be philosophical one minute and retail queen the next!! You see, only blogging gives you such scope....

Love the boots !

Amy said...

I'm intrigued by your ideas on blogging as a way to stroke our egos vs. other types of accomplishments/relationships. I've been thinking on that one myself a bit.

I think if I had to live through even one wet, gray English winter I would have to get red boots. :-)
