Sore feet

Today I have blisters.  Now the lady in Hobbs said my shoes would feel quite hard for the first week (she was wearing them in a different colour so she should know) and then soften up.  At least they are flat.

I am a wimp and have put a load of Compeed blister plasters on.

Excuse the crappy nail varnish, I don't do my toes very often.

I said that wearing flat shoes would be good for the lady in the shop as she is on her feet all day.  I remember my feet at the end of my first day working in a gift shop in Brighton when I was 15 – the lady said they call it “retail legs” but said she doesn’t get it any more.

Today I am meant to be hosting a bunch of new mums so they can meet each other and make friends with other new mums in the area.  However, they are nearly always late and I never know how many will turn up.  I went to Ottolenghi to get some biscuits, just in case.

Ottolenghi is a good shop.  They have a queue out the door on Friday and Saturday lunchtimes and are NEVER empty.  I love their cakes and salads, although realistically they are not slimming.  My husband thinks they are poncey, I think he is hard to please.
