Blimey, I’m glad it’s warmed up a bit. It was (literally) freezing earlier this week (Ed: not that the British are obsessed with the weather). Not the type of weather to be stood about on a train station or waiting for a bus. Luckily, I didn’t have to do either this week. 🙂
Things are ticking along quietly at the mo. Sometimes a bit of quiet is very, very welcome. Excitement? Yes, it’s nice for a bit – like having friends round – but you don’t want them all the time. It’s good to be able to just sit back, have a nice cup of your favourite dried leaves/beans meets water + cow juice.
I’m feeling a bit of a lull in the Force. The TG Force that is, not the making robots-jump-about Force you see in the movies. However, I did get some new heels while I was out the other day. There was a sale on and after a quick stroll around the shop I found a nice pair of stillies I couldn’t resist. I was miles from home, so finding a quiet spot at the back of the shop, shoes off, heels on. No-one cared and no-one gave me a second glance. Just what I wanted. I suppose most people think ‘fancy dress’ or ‘stag do’. That’s normally what I hear from my (straight) mates if they get up to anything like that. That or they’re better liars than I am. 🙂
After queuing for ages I handed over the cash. The sales lady asked if I wanted any foot pads (no, not muggers) that shops have been flogging off. “Are they yours?” she asks slowly. “Yeah,” I reply because really a) who cares, b) she won’t remember me and c) I’m a long way from home. “Okay,” she says brightening. “We get quite a few gents in here for ladies shoes” she adds. Cue a conversation about the perils of dancing in heels (her) and that her feet would ache at the end of the night. Sure, we blokes are heavier, but I wonder if our big feet are designed to take the weight more than a woman’s dainty pinkies? Either that or we’re just out in them less. 🙂
In other news, I got my tickets for the Harmony party later this year. I’m not overly fussed about going *right* now, but once the magic of Christmas / Autumn kicks in, I shall be looking forward to it. A dinner and a dance – sounds rather fun. I wonder who else will be along for the fun and…. not that I’m obsessed… what will be in fashion…. and will it be cold? 🙂
Here’s to a relaxing weekend,
