Day 9 - Bows

Right then - clue "bows". Got this one straight away. The invalid was being his dippy self and said "bows" as in "male curtsey" - only he could. Then he got really silly and said some very silly things (which I can't repeat here!) but suffice it to say they were really silly!!!!!! After being told off and to behave himself I opened it and this is what I found:

I just love the colour. Thank you Lesley. This is sooooo exciting. I am very surprised I have been able to refrain from opening them in advance and peeking! HONEST GOV I haven't. My mum would be soooo proud of me!

I have finally got round to photographing my wacky purchase on Sunday. We went to Matalan to get "the invalid to be" some tracky bottoms and then popped into Brantana (well it was next door so seemed silly to waste the journey!) and I spotted these wacky things. I tried on several different pairs with wacky patterns on but settled for these. "How much are they" we think. Well that pair says "reduced to £15" so I thought what the hell and went to pay for them. At the till I could have sworn the girl said £10 so I kept schtum and as casual as possible I strolled out. When we got to the car I said to Ron that I thought I only paid £10 so we looked at the receipt and what a bloomin' shock I got - I actually paid £20. Still I think they are worth it and they do have an 1" heel on them. Ready - right here goes:

Aren't they just sooo cool!

Should have been back to work today but Ron's thigh is still a bit numb and he is still struggling to get around. I didn't feel very comfortable about leaving him in case he fell over! Hopefully it will be back to normal tomorrow. He is lying on the sofa at the moment with the paper, cup of tea and two donuts! I am absolutely shattered. Learnt now to ask if there is anything he needs BEFORE I sit down.

Just off to catch up with Kirsty's homemade Christmas. Just love this. Tomorrow she is at the home of one of my most favourite peoples - Mandy Shaw. She is just a fantastic person. Been to some of her quilt classes and she is just the funniest person. She talks like me - she says things like - Mandy clear up, Mandy sitting here and stuff like that. That's how Burn talks !!!! Just love her.

Well best go and settle myself before lunch.

Thanks for looking in.

Love Burnice x
