They were the same ones, you were all right and i was SOOOOOOO wrong. Well they looked DIFFERENT on my computer. They did. Truly. I am sorry i didn't believe you. I am sorry I shouted about it. I now have in my hands a pair of teal shoes and they are definitely a greenish colour, and i really like them. Whether they fit is another matter, but THANK YOU ALL (especially fabio who emailed me to insist i ordered them)

you know how important shoes are and i would like to thank all of you, hush puppies, barack obama and Justine for making this possible

<comes back from loo>

Oh I'm so pleased for you Franny <punches celebratory fist in air>

I thought you were a vegetarian though <narrows eyes>

i have just had immense row with ds1 because he couldn't find the right t-shirt he wanted to wear

wherever does he get it from blush

FrannyandZooey Fri 12-Jun-09 09:36:12

not planning to eat them MamaG, i can see why you were worried though

MamaG Fri 12-Jun-09 09:38:39

I was referring to the crow pie, knobbo

MamaG Fri 12-Jun-09 09:39:23

<feels anxious re calling F a knobbo, harking back to "terrified of F" days>

Greensleeves Fri 12-Jun-09 09:40:45

LOL at being scared of Franny

she is about as scary as a stuffed rabbit with a pink bow around its neck grin

MamaG Fri 12-Jun-09 09:42:27

I can't explain it Greeny. You either get it or you don't <quiver>

Greensleeves Fri 12-Jun-09 09:42:28

oi twisty I want your cleverness on my MIL thread...


Greensleeves Fri 12-Jun-09 09:43:19

I think my ds1 gets it MamaG - he was so overawed by her he had to throw himself in a lake to cool down shock grin

MamaG Fri 12-Jun-09 09:49:58

LOL! I think that would be me <looks for lake>

PS. I know I'm not twisty, but I answered your thread anyway

FrannyandZooey Fri 12-Jun-09 10:41:30

hah at knobbo and all of above
it is great to be thought of as even mildly scary

FrannyandZooey Fri 12-Jun-09 10:47:19

franny entertains yet another delighted child

DaddyG Fri 12-Jun-09 12:50:48

Franny that was very mean of you, to post that pic angry - I have an actual phobia of people dressed up in animal costumes. I'm serious, I really do blush blush blush

I'm really REALLY glad you've seen that I was joking about hte vegetarian thing, I get so riled when people whine say "rah rah you're a veggie but you're wearing leather shoes". I always hiss "oh fuck off" in my head but will remember the "well I'm not going to eat my shoes" line for next time.

DaddyG Fri 12-Jun-09 12:51:07

God I must change back to mamaG

Lulumama Fri 12-Jun-09 12:53:06

PMSL at greeny ' scary as a stuffed rabbit with a pink bow!!

brill grin

FrannyandZooey Fri 12-Jun-09 18:48:58

oh dear sorry MamaG - i didn't know that! <tries not to snigger>
is it based on anything?
<longs for story about terrible experience regarding man in rabbit suit>

yes i did go off muttering to myself about it "so i suppose EVERYONE else you know is COMPLETELY consistent, hmm? so i suppose we all have to be PERFECT now do we? hmmm????"
but not because i thought you were likely to be being unreasonable, it was just a knee jerk mutter

That thread reminded me of your infamous 'skirt' thread Franny. Scarred for life by that one we were. You are sooooo difficult to please. wink
