Shoes! Bought some trainers a month ago, since my last pair had holes in the soles. Well, now this pair have holes in the soles! Even good quality walking boots only last me 9-10 months before they’re completely worn out. I suspect part of the reason is because I don’t distribute my weight evenly, but then, I do walk everywhere as well. Still, is it too much to ask that a pair of shoes lasts me at least a year before they start falling apart?

I have the same problem with shoes @Sonnet they don't seem to make shoes the way they used to. I walk everywhere and even expensive leather shoes wear out in a few months. I make sure they can be resoled and heeled now as it takes me so long to get them comfy I don't want to bin them as soon as they stop rubbing.

This is one of the excuses I have in buying loads of shoes. They easily break. 😂

Yeah, it’s a bit annoying really.

Does get expensive though!

Me and my clumsiness! :doh:

Had to see a hand specialist who’s hoping it’ll heal strapped up but it’s right at the bottom and a bit dodgy so back to see him and get another X-ray Friday! No idea how I’m going to clean pig cage and three fish tanks! :mal:
I’m such a plonker! But at least it’s not my face from a seizure like usual I suppose, bit of a change! XD

Some of the terms used since the start of the pandemic. Lockdown makes me think of Ghost Adventures and Staycation makes me cringe 😬

Getting an email from amazon that Hermes are meant to be delivering my package today, I get anxiety at the thought of Hermes... just hope it turns up!
I got a package from Hermes today. They even found the building first time, which never happens. I'm kind of worried that means there's another massive calamity coming..

Hoping I have the same luck! These days if it’s anything but Royal Mail or Amazon I get nervous, but especially Hermes!

Yeah to be fair I haven't actually opened the box to make sure what's inside is still intact. I'm kind of nervous to look, now.
