birthday boots

so here's the shoes I bought myself for the birthday...campers. Oh my, what a seriously fun pair of shoes. For anyone who knows anything about campers, yes, I will be paying these off for the better part of winter, but boy are they worth it. The thing you need to realise about me is that it's all about the shoes. Have I mentioned this before? I like clothes and I kinda like jewellery, but I don't tend to go nutty over a good skirt or a pair of earrings in the same way I do with shoes. I first saw these in a little shoe shop in bangalow on our north coast oddysey. Sadly they weren't in my size, so that was the end of it. Well, that should have been the end of it. But no, I get back in the car and before you know it, I'm gazing out the window, picturing my little (although not little enough for the ones in bangalow) feet sporting a pair of these babies, and here we have the beginning of a shoe obsession. There was no rest to be had until I had said shoes in my posession. And, needless to say, I had them within the week. All the way from new zealand, no less. The last pair in the southern hemisphere, maybe. Now, I know how ridiculous this situation is, and I know what a fickle creature I am, considering what's actually going on in the world as we speak. All I can say is, life is too short for boring shoes.

great analogy - even though i don't have a shoe fetish. and sometimes it's really good to spoil yourself and indulge in a bit of luxury.
hope you had a wonderful birthday. i've been away from the computer so i'm catching up now. happy birthday from us!
