Happy unbirthday to me!

In the end, yesterday didn’t work out so well. I had hoped we would go out for lunch or even just a cup of tea, but it wasn’t to be. Today has been a lot better. I put on the same outfit and we were both well enough to go out for tea and cake. Elder Son is away for a few days, so Lovely Husband and I are going to enjoy the peace and quiet and I hope we can manage a few more trips out too.

In yesterday’s post, I gave a bit of a hint about my birthday present to myself and I will now reveal it properly…

First of all the box. Ooh, Duo Boots again…

Next, you can see inside the box…

Wow! That colour!

Here they are, gorgeous purple suede Pixie ankle boots…

And here is a collage showing the website images of the boots from all angles…

Yes, I wore them today and they are very comfortable too. Duo Boots are quite expensive for me, but I love their styles so much and it is great that they do wide fitting footwear.

What is that poem? Ah yes:


When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.

Best wishes,
