Anyway, I am always on the look out for new shoes. Just so you know, shoes are not a big thing for me. I own about 10 pairs including slippers. But never-the-less I am always looking for just the right pair of shoes with the right heel.
So I managed to find a pair of boots the other day – the sort that come to just above the ankle. They were slightly higher than I am used to but they had the right heel. So I bought them.
Hubby and I went shopping on Saturday morning and I insisted on wearing my new boots – I need to wear them in so I can wear them more often in the coming cold months.
So I put them on and stood up…………..and nearly fell flat on my face. My whole center of gravity was off.
This didn’t put me off wearing them though and I insisted on going shopping in them.
I got in the car. I usually drive, so it took me awhile to get used to driving with them. Then I tried to get out of my car – a 4×4 so I have to climb down to get out (I drive a Prado) and almost fell flat on my face again. I found myself walking around the shops very self conscious and felt like I was walking on my toes.
Hubby thought I was hysterical. He just doesn’t get why I would want to wear them. I’m not even going to bother trying to explain it – if he doesn’t know enough about women after 25 years of marriage, then there is no hope for him.
