I so wanted to go meet up with the other Melbourne bloggers today but it wasn’t meant to be it seems. I could lie about my reasons for a no show but I’m not the kind of person to hold back from making myself sound like a doofus.
I got up nice and early this morning, planning on a 9.30 cycle class but I felt like shit so went back to bed. When I woke up again it was 11.45 and I freaked. Then I checked the train timetable – if I caught the 12.13 express into the city, I reckoned I could make it. I rushed through my shower and chucked on some clothes then threw all my stuff into my handbag. As I left the house, I decided to take my ipod and ran back for it. I got to the train station in plenty of time but, when I went to buy my ticket, I realised I’d grabbed my backpack instead of my handbag! I had no money, nothing except my scungy post-gym undies from last night and some supermarket receipts. Arrrgghh!
I could have almost ran home and changed bags and made it back to the train in time except my shoes were sodden from the wet streets plus I had no house keys (they were also in the other bag) so had to get my sister up to answer the door.
To make things worse, my old mobile is now officially cactus so I’ve changed phones but have no one’s mobile number. I decided it was a sign from the universe to stay at home. Damn it. I expect to see lots of lovely photos on everyone’s blog and I’ll definitely get my shit together for the next meetup.
I went to the outlet shop to get my comfy but ugly shoes yesterday. Luckily I ended up with comfy and cute shoes – a pair of black mary janes (called Doris which doesn’t sound too groovy). They were $90 with full orthopedic support, perfect for walking to work and other such activities.
When we walked into the shop, they had a table filled with the grooviest shoes – lots of little flats in pinks and greens and reds. We ‘oohed’ and ahhed’ until the lady told us they were samples and only in size 6.
If you live in Melbourne and are a size 6 foot, I highly recommend you get to Walk On Footwear on Queen’s Parade. $40 a pair, bargain!
