Took 45 minutes on the bus to get home from the hospital last night. It should take 5-10 minutes. There was a huge traffic jam or something. I couldn't get out and walk because the heel had almost completely come off my shoe ;D

Got to go shoe-shopping now ;D

I hate shopping. Its the devils work. I hate going to the shops so much that I know all my debit card details off by heart. If it can't be delivered, I don't want it.
It's no good thinking about torturing me for the numbers though - there's nothing to take. ;D

But shoe shopping is the very worst. My feet weren't designed for shoes. They don't tend to make shoes as wide as a small country. Apart from that though. When you ask the assistant if they have a style in a size 7 or whatever - why do they say "no but we do have them in a size 6 or 8" Oh well congratulations! Isn't a shame that I don't have interchangeable feet! >:( grrrrrrrr....

I have bought some hideous shoes. They were £20 at BHS - the last place I went to and the only place I tried anything on it. We have very few shoe shops in Bath amazingly - certainly very few cheap ones. I think I may need an in-sole for them as I am sure they will end up flapping off the back of my heel - everything does and -I couldn't find any with straps, which was what I wanted.

I find the US/ Uk sizing complicated. I have 7 over here but my latest (expensive!) running shoes are American size 9s!
Does that make you a UK 4 Jo?
