Anyone following my blog will know that I am recovering from major surgery including breaking my femur and removing an inch of bone to eliminate my leg length difference. This will hopefully allow me to walk ‘normally’ over time and not have to wear orthotics or have the right heel of all my shoes built up. To celebrate this, and the fact that over 4 months after my surgery I am beginning to get out of the flat a bit, even if it still involves 2 crutches I ventured into Wimbledon village at the weekend. My poor husband may not share my celebrations though as our Saturday involved him taking me shopping to incorporate my daily walk – well I’ve not been shopping for over 4 months!! Apart from buying a dress for my friend’s party the week before mine it also involved buying these gorgeous red patent shoes from Hobbs, which are the only pair of shoes I own at the moment that have heels the same height.
I’m ready for bed already, was a really long day starting with a site meeting in Bristol, then train back to Paddington where there were numerous problems with the underground and took 45 mins to actually manage to get on a train to go to One New Change for final snagging and last minute panic before opening tomorrow. If you’re in London tomorrow why not go to One New Change, a brand new shopping development opposite St Paul’s cathedral which opens/launches at noon, and feel free to check out the Hobbs shop (not that I’m biased!)
With such a busy day I relisted a delisted card from Bessie, which is dedicated to all my customers to say thanks for choosing my Folksy shop. Which brings me to today’s topic – ways to say thanks:
Mushy makes – poppy brooch (why not show some appreciation and thanks to all those that have fought and continue to fight for our country, I don’t agree with the Iraq war but I support the troops out there risking their lives so we don’t have to. So please buy a poppy)
Chasing beads - love charm bracelet (it’s the people I love the most that I owe the most thanks to)
