Would you like to see a photo of me wearing my glamorous new footwear? You would?
They are very comfortable and could easily fit into the category of 'occasional wear' ...... in that they suit or will have to suit any occasion imaginable for some time to come.
I've been wearing them in public places since yesterday and I may very well be a trend-setter in the making. I may even influence this season's 'in' colours.
So, without further ado let me introduce you to this seaon's brand new and very last minute, nothing like making a last minute dramatic entrance absolutely-must-have fashion accessory....
What? You look appalled....... don't you like them? Don't you like the fabulous new neon-green look? What.... it'll never catch on, I hear you say??? Absolutely must not have?
Sigh.... well, it was worth a try!
Okay, I'll come clean and tell you the real story. Let me begin by telling you I am a dizzy character sometimes, I have a head like a sieve, I forget and lose stuff like concert tickets all the time and do the silliest things imaginable and always have done. I'm a flibbertygibbet, a will o'the wisp, a clown... and I doubt at this stage that anybody could quite solve the Problem like Jazzy!
I stumble through my days forgetting where I'm going, missing appointments, leaving things switched on like irons and even convincing myself that I have when I haven't and ruining a lovely breakfast meet-up as a result. I spend countless hours looking for keys , house, car, shed, whatever, on a daily basis. Just follow my facebook updates and you'll know what I mean! I share my misfortunes in order to bring laughter to others! I'm a sharing kinda gal!
I'm a walking disater area... except I'm not quite walking at the moment!
See, I'm also known to cause myself injuries. For example only last year I fractured my coccyx.
Last week, the week that my cough from hell was finally (and thankfully) diagnosed as Asthma, I managed to badly hurt my little toe by whacking it off a chair on Friday.... contrary to the rumour that I was table-top dancing after inbibing a bottle of wine. Oh, how I wish the latter were true, how more intersting a tale would that have been?!
Today, 3 days later it is still very sore, badly bruised and even more swollen. This picture doesn't even do it justice as half my foot under the little toe is like a rainbow!
It's been examined by a nurse and I've spoken to the Doctor.The concensus of opinion from all is that there's no point in going to a hospital as there's nothing that can be done, even if it is fractured. Just like my coccyx.
I'm applying ice, arnica, elevation and taking nurefen and it's now been strapped up. I feel much happier now that it's being supported as that will help keep the bone in place.
I need not to have a broken toe though so....... Dear Toe, if you can self-heal in time for big family event this weekend I'd be very grateful.
Meanwhile I found it strangely liberating to hobble through a very posh restaurant yesterday for Father's Day wearing WiiBoy's old neon-green crocs! Mind you, I did include some extra hobbles just in case people thought that I was wearing them by choice!
Still not convinced that this fabulous look will catch on???
Best go try and find more suitable footwear so...
