Just being ME


Please say hello ... I love comments!

has someone flipped ...

I enjoyed reading the comments left on my 'rain' post, we have been having rather a lot just of late, my three water butts around the garden are now bursting at the seams, so much so the water is now just gushing down the drainpipe into the drain which is such a shame. It got me thinking, a few months back my friend Fiona sent me an e-mail with this photo as an attachment, so I thought I would see what you thought of these creations. They are called High Tide Heels, and are for the fashion-aware scuba diver keen to show off swim-toned legs. First seen on the catwalk of Jean Paul Gaultier, now crying out for a UK stockist. Come on, Clarks!

Would you wear these?

Thank you for your comments, i left you a reply on my own blog sometimes i can be a real dozy cow, that or way too much pinot or not enough lavazza depending on the time of the day...S X those shoes really! but maybe i have no room to talk as i live in New Rocks which to me are totally normal but people do look at me as if i have escaped from a circus!

Hi Louise
No I wouldn't wear these shoes.. they would clash violently with my Nora Batty tights..
Isn't a full water butt a wonderful thing!
Happiness is...

Hello Louise,
That would be a definite NO from me, great though, very quirky, thanks for showing them. I just saw your post about the pigs - love them too! I've lost count of how many times I've watched Babe, one of my favourites. Back soon to see what new snippets you have for us, keep them coming!

No, I wouldn't wear those shoes. And imagine how one would look trying to walk in them. That flipper in the front would certainly cause an unattractive gait!

Hi Louise,
Katie is my daughter, bless her.
She is 19 weeks pregnant today, she will be 25 years old this Friday. God that does make me sound old! I was a young Mum! I am still in my forties.
We have a hunch it is a girl, but we shall have to wait and see...
I love gingham too, always have.
I have a little gingham needlework case that I made with a cross stitch patten on the front when I was about 7 or 8 years old, do they still make things like this at school?

They would be a great alternative to wearing wellies! I think they are fabulous.
