We went away for the weekend. I managed to stand in dog poo whilst cleaning vomit off dd at the side of the road on the way there. Only had that pair of shoes with me but after the trip we'd had I just couldn't face cleaning smelly dog poo off a pair of £2.99 flip-flops, so I threw them away. Later on, dh popped in to town and asked if I needed anything. "Yes please, a pair of shoes, size 5".

He came home very pleased with himself. He'd bought me these.

I am one of them now.

Should I be patting you on the back heartily, or gently with some compassion. ??grin

tell me you are joking. I'd have gone barefoot.

They're fab. And I mean it. Really, really good. I have purple ones.

Do I wear them anywhere except the house or the (back) garden? Noooooooooooooooooooooo!

DoubleBluff Mon 20-Oct-08 21:46:59

OMFG!! They are shocking!

He was so pleased because he'd remembered me saying that I needed a pair of winter boots, and these would do the job perfectly as they were warm and waterproof.

I expect you're regretting the loss of your cheapo shit smeared flip flops now, and that's something you never thought you'd grieve for.

Divorce the bastard.

Cheesesarnie Mon 20-Oct-08 21:49:29

divorce him or atleast make him suffer.
i agree id have gone barefoot or wore shitty flipflops.

Did you ever get those other shoes you wanted for your wedding Broccoli?

[Yes, I clearly do spend too much time on here emoticon]

Is this thread designed to entice Cod back? wink

p.s. I am not a "shoe" person but even I would consider that they are not a good look for anyone.

I have a pair I use as slippers - brown and super comfy but still wouln't wear them outside.
How can they be waterproof? - they have holes! hmm

BroccoliSpearedThroughTheHead Mon 20-Oct-08 21:59:54

Yes, I think they'll do as slippers.

Squeaver I didn't. I wore these in white in the end.

sasamax Mon 20-Oct-08 22:03:22

They are lovely!
I just bought DS (nearly 3) some hiking boots - they are divine!
