I felt a bit worse for wear this morning -- we'd had a so-called 'team event', i.e. dinner and drinks on Jobsworth's company credit card, which had unexpectedly turned out to be quite jolly and fun.

(the people I'm most closely associated with at work: Allan, Sanne, Nebojsa and Kim)

(minus Allan, but with me in the middle instead)

It had gotten quite late, and as soon as I opened my eyes I wanted to close them again, but I reminded myself I had to get into town and exchange my broken 20Gb Creative Zen Touch for a 60Gb Creative Zen Vision:M -- Paul, the sales assistant at Dixons had called while I was in Coventry to tell me his quest for a 30Gb replacement had utterly failed, and offered to trade in my old, useless mp3-player for the 60Gb alternative instead if I would just agree to pay the difference. This was a far better offer than the one I'd received from Creative themselves, who had offered to send out a refurbished 30Gb model at a cost of 135 euros, so I'd jumped at it...and I am now in proud possession of a brand new mp4-player with room for 15,000 songs or lots of videos. The price? One knackered Creative Zen Touch and 46 euros 49.

To celebrate my good fortune, I bought a pair of very cute black velvet shorts, perfect for the holidays, and an adorable pair of black leather pumps with a little pink ribbon & bow:

Hurrah for a team event that was better than expected!

I love the shoes too.

What a difference a simple ribbon makes to an otherwise unremakable pair of shoes, eh?

YAY team event that is FUN (and friends who look lovely too).

Adore the shoes!!! I have very small feet (must shop in childrens department) and don't get the wonderful selection of normal people....love pretty shoes though and snag them when I find them in my size. These are a treat!

I can't imagine how hard it must be to shop for shoes when you take such an unusual size...but good for you for persevering and managing to find some nonetheless!

Those shoes are adorable! I'm glad you had a good time.

It was quite unexpected -- I mean, colleagues are not friends (although in the case of Allan and Kim, that line has been blurred an age ago, and we do tend to see one another outside of work too) and to spend a night out on the town with them would not have been my first choice, but it was good...we might even do it again some time.

The shoes, I know, are going to be fast favourites.

Hooray! What a great deal! And those shoes are adorable!

I think they might possibly be the girliest pair of shoes I've ever owned, but I'm loving them.

I love the shoes, but I'm burnign with curiosity about the black velvet shorts! How are you planning on wearing them? Tights or leggings?
I've been wishing for formal shorts and putting them back on the shelf because I felt a bit too mutton to wear shorts anymore....

Enlighten me! Maybe I'll be daring and wear them tooQ

Well, I was sort of thinking: bustier and a whip...;-) Seriously though, they look great when worn with opaque tights...al moet je in de keuze van bovenkleding natuurlijk wel oppassen dat het niet teveel een Zwarte Piet-kostuum wordt.
