Will this fit the bill. Dull but seasonal?

Hey, Rubes, hey Wilbur - been busy?

I am well jel about your drinkies tomorrow. I just wish I could shrug off my domestic commitments, but it isn't going to happen. And DS has a late return from his "important" football match tomorrow (his Y8 team are doing rather well in the Schools Cup and he is off to Essex to do battle with their finest).

Nice boots, Wilbur. I bought a very similar pair from Clarks that were mighty comfy, but slipped off my heels when I walked, so they had to go back. There is a 20% discount around at the moment and I'm contemplating these for work.

BTM - my sewing machine was a 16th birthday present! And it was in action only yesterday, taking in some charity shop trousers that were a little too wide.

Well, I am exhausted and drained after my exam. I felt in need of retail therapy afterwards so went to Selfridges and bought a Very Large Bottle of Expensive Perfume. And lots of stocking fillers from Primark. grin

I have also been wearing my new Camper ankle boots. I suspect they are Mum Boots. They have given me a blister.

Ooh, which perfume did you buy?

I can't believe anyone as super-glam as you has granny boots, Ruby.wink

This mum boot thing is a minefield! I need some heeled black leather boots, not too high, to wear under trousers for work, and it's a thin line I have to tread......

Your favourite, CV. grin

Happy Friday all! Been the journey from hell here this week what with all the rain!
I too am envy of drinks tonight, but have the folks up. AND I bought my first Christmas present yesterday! (One down, a zillion to go)
MrsS congrats on the exam smile
I need new boots, am loving the ones on conkers site, but also like a pair of El Naturalista...

ruby! I was only wondering where you'd got to yesterday!

Well done on the exam MrsS - I will be trawling Primarni for stocking fillers later... And I have to get to Selfridges to pick up some trainers that DD has her heart set on - hope they hold onto them till I get there.

Am feeling mighty drawn to those boots wilbur. And there's a 20% off code ATM....

Ruby, I like the tan ones but it's black ones for work that I need. They aren't cheap but sound nice and (there's that word again) comfy.

I had Secret Santa rage yesterday, in fact I might just start a thread about it.

They last, and are good tempered. My current work ones have got soaked, muddy, stood on by the dog and are still fine ;)
Sizing - I'm generally a 3.5 (36) and fine they are fine - 4 is usually a tad too big, a 3 is fine (unless you wear thick socks). I am converting these. Currently wearing these to death...
