Shoe madness!

I suspect I am one of only a few women in the world who doesn't have a shoe fetish. I have shoes, probably more than I need, but that's only because I am a horder and don't throw them away when they really should be chucked. I like to think that I can get them re-heeled or what ever and keep on wearing them but rarely do. In use I have a pair of trainers, a pair of backless pale bue pumps, a pair of black boots. I did have some brown boots that I loved but have recently pulled hte heel off the right foot (oops - damed steep hills and ice! They were a bad choice that day)

So when last night I got a text message from my step mum asking if my wedding dress maker had told me to bring my wedding shoes on Sunday I was a little stunned.

  1. I haven't really thought about shoes yet
  2. I'm not going to wear them for anther 15 - 16 months
  3. No one will see them under the dress anyway
Now, I know that shoes were mentioned last time I was there... something about heel hight. I only really wear two kinds of heel; flat or 1 1/2 inch. So I guess I'll be pluming for the 1 1/2 inch heel, but the thought of actually already having the shoes came as a shock. So I texted Fay back and said "I hope not because I haven't got them" to which she responded "We'll buy some Sunday morning"

What the hell am I going to do with these shoes between now and then? I am the kind of person who will damage or loose them between now and the big day. I suppose I could totter round in them for a bit to break them in so I'm not in foot-agony on the big day... that makes sence I suppose, but I must remember not to go driving in them (a sure-fire way to ruin heels) or do the house work in them (Ack! Bleach!) or do any baking in them (that's how I ruined my slippers, covered in Doh!). I'm thinking about leaving them with my mother, who is a very tidy and organised person and will keep them safe and clean.

I do like to be prepeared well in advance for looking good. I'm the kind of girl who plans an outfit for a night out three days ahead so that I only need 20 mins to get ready to go out (which impresses my feller), but 16 month ahead planning for SHOES?

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
