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.

Re: You can never have enough shoes
Undies! I'd forgotten about those - thanks for reminding me ;-)

Seriously, how much CAN you fit in a spider?
Not a lot. I had a quick look at the trunk and decided one medium sized bag would be all it had room for. So undies, toothbrush, makeup bag, 2 or 3 outfits, jeans, and no more than 3 pairs of shoes -one of which I'll be wearing- will have to do me. Plus the credit cards, of course.

How long did you have to wait
About 3 months...you remember, I broke my toe New Year's.

...boots as a metaphor for life
Oh come now, surely it's not that bad, is it?

Re: You can never have enough shoes
Excited yet?

Well, I'm excited for you! And looking forward to hearing the story of "Two Girls in a Spider" when you get back.

It's just a shame you are going to miss the Buffy compilation the beeb are running next week. I understand from the preamble it's going to concentrate on the Spuffy relationship, too. At least Auntie seems to recognise what the fans want.

Buffy compilation...as if!
You are such a tease!

You don't honestly expect me to fall for that one, do you? But thanks anyway - you've just reminded me of the need to pre-programme the VCR, or else I'll miss 'Him' on Wednesday.

Him...oh, yes, the rocket launcher and hewhomustnotbenamed. Pity Spike didn't use the thing on Buffy.......
