See these shoes? The Girl will be wearing these to her Prom at the end of the month. And whilst I don't want to come over all Sex And The City gushing-over-designer-footwear, I have to admit that these are A Work Of Art and somebody somewhere is very clever indeed where the design of shoes is concerned.
Although there was a very sad, typical 'OMG what ARE you doing, mother, please not in public' moment when we were in the shop. Whilst the Girl's face flushed excitedly at the sight of these works of art, my frown was saying something more along the lines of "what on earth would posses a person to wear a pair of flocked, carpeted shoes with heels so high you could wash the windows upstairs without the aid of a ladder" type thing.
But then I tried them on and turned into Cinderella. Albeit momentarily - until they were whipped away from me and herded towards the box and the till and home.
Whereas that was probably more like a fortnight ago...
