“ANOTHER pair of shoes?!”

This morning, as I was drinking my coffee and checking my email, there came a knock upon the door. There, on the doorstep, stood a delivery man clutching a parcel.

“Another pair of shoes?” he asked, as I signed for the delivery.

And you know, it WAS another pair of shoes. And not only that, but another pair of red wedges . Houston, I think we have a problem…

How many pairs of red wedges does one woman need, I hear you ask?

“Four” is the answer you’re looking for.*

*Four is also the answer to the question “How many stripey jackets does one woman need?” funnily enough. Four: it’s the magic number!

(Oh, they’re from Schuh, by the way. Just in case any of you aren’t quite meeting your Red Wedge quota for this month.)

    I *heart* those shoes. *sigh*

    Alas hubby has gone all funny about shoes and I can’t even replace my broken ones! :(

    At 40 years of age you’d think I could make my own choices by now!!

    Sorry, I seem to have momentarily gone gnarly in your blog!!

    It’s a worry when the delivery man knows you that well. :)

    I just noticed the new banner. I love it!
    Hope the shoeper-faker issue is going in your favour.

    Is it a bad sign that I immediately remember exactly all four pairs you are talking about? ;)

    Don’t worry about the mailman, though. The one who delivers to me has also started guessing what’s inside mine, and mostly he’s right… (“They’re watching us, monitoring everything we do! They’re after us!” :) ) He’s a nice guy, though.

    The new shoes are lovely!

    How many? One more pair than you already have is the answer given to me by another mad shoe woman.

    Huh. How come you get those pretty things, and the only shoe delivery I’m waiting for is spotty wellies for gardening?

    The aren’t red wedges; they are red and white. That means you need another pair of red ones :D

    You can’t have too many pairs of red wedges. And those are adorable.

    Oh, I love these! I far prefer wedges that have a pattern on the heel and I love red, so I think these are lovely. The delivery man’s a bit cheeky, though!
