If only the shoe fit!

Things are better today. They're still hectic, but I don't feel so overwhelmed anymore; and besides, I've got better things to do than worry about how everything's going to fall apart next week when I'm not here. What if it does? What do I care? I'm off in 3 days' time!

I wonder what to pack, how many pairs of shoes to bring. I know I'm only going to be away for a few days, but still, these are important questions...and difficult to answer when your wardrobe's recently been depleted. The weather's not making it any easier to decide, either: warm and sunny one minute, it's cold and grey the next. Too balmy for a coat, too chilly without one...better bring along a cardy and a few wraps/stoles/whatchummacallits. Should I take a brollie? I'll only go and leave it somewhere...
I definitely won't be taking these pinkle-winklers I've been wearing today. God how they pinch! They were a perfect fit in the shop, but ever since I got them home they've been nothing but painful reminders of my vanity and greed. And they're not my only ones. I bought a beautiful pair of white-on-white embroidered suede boots in Harrod's last December and I've not been able to wear them for any length of time since then. I'll probably end up donating them to the Shoe Museum or something.
