Outfit: Shoeper Challenge 2012 #75 and Grey and Blue



Blue OTK

Yesterday I cooked a whole chicken in my slow cooker for the first time and it turned out fabulous! I put it in breast-down with ¾ pint of stick in the morning and about 10 hours later took it out and it fell apart. The whole thing, bones and all. I didn’t need to carve it and de-boning it was easy – I just picked the meat out. It was so much easier than roasting it in the oven and I’ll definitely be doing it again.


After tea I went to step class then came home and finished addressing my Christmas cards whilst watching Mythbusters. I was going to go for a shower after that but got to channel hopping and found that Last Tango in Halifax was on, a drama series on BBC One that we watched the first part of last week.


These boots were bought on eBay a couple of years ago. They are cheap as chips faux suede and are bound to fall apart at some point, but I love the colour and I only paid £20 for them I think. They are marked a size 43 but are a large 41 at a push. They fit me OK though so that’s all that matters.


I decided my blue flat boots were for the bin last night the blue has started to crack and peel off the top of the foot. This is a good thing and a bad thing. It’s good because my shoe collection was creeping upwards again and I wanted to get rid of a pair I was yet to save in the Shoeper Challenge but I didn’t really want to part with any. Now the decision has been made for me. It’s bad because I loved those boots. They are years old and cost about £15 from Priceless. They have had a LOT of wear (including a long weekend tramping around Amsterdam 6 Christmases ago) so I can’t really complain but they were really comfy and such a great colour.

  1. I love the blue boots, cheap though they may be. Wear them until they fall apart. :) I've not been as big a fan of yesterday's purple ones but they were absolutely perfect with that dress so maybe I had judged them to harshly when you first got them. I will have to search back to see which flat blue boots you are discarding. I'm not picturing them off the top of my head. Anyway, you look fab, as usual!
