I suppose some of my attachment to them comes from the day of the 7/7 bombings on London Underground. These boots were what I was wearing when I had to walk home from work when the transport links were closed. Hours I walked in these but they never let me down, I wonder if I should I keep them and package away to tell the story to my grandchildren?
Everyone looks at the heel and asks “how do you walk in them” and I tell them the story of my walk home that day.
Good news today was I met (if not very briefly!) Nigella Lawson who was signing copies of her book Nigella Express.
It took an extended lunch break, an hour and a half standing in queue in the cold and rain but was worth it to get it personally signed and see the lady in the flesh. She appeared a lovely lady and very sympathetic to the people that were not going to get seen (I was practically the last person!).
Here’s her dedication,
This is a short post for this evening as I'm frantic preparing for my trip to New York. You would think I was emigrating for the carry on I'm having! Tomorrow is my last day at home as we'll be staying at Heathrow on Thursday evening straight from work so everything needs to be in order (I'm sure I'm making up things I need to do).
Biggest problem I currently have is clothing/weather.... some reports say snow....
....and others sun
I'm hoping a friendly local on Tripadviser will be able to give me some indiction on what weather I can expect.
