I am still recovering from the shock of paying so much for a pair of walking boots. £79.99 for a pair of walking boots! Boots that will get muddy and dirty and wet. Its not often that I buy myself any new items of clothing. I’m simply not into clothes at all. Of course I need to wear them, but anything I buy has to be cheapo. I honestly can’t recall paying so much on a coat or an outfit never mind a pair of walking boots! What rankles the most is that K’s boots look practically identical to mine and certainly as well made, yet cost less that half the price! If only the assistant had informed me that my final choice was not in the sale, I would have acted like one of the ugly sisters and squeezed my feet into the toe pinching, tight fitting, bunion rubbing one’s instead.
I shall no doubt be feeling under pressure to attend every walk without fail simply to get my money’s worth out of them. Meanwhile, K has ended up killing two birds with one stone and is using her walking boots as deputy riding boots as well, so her £24.99 purchase has been a bargain! Sigh…..Try to guess which boots are mine.
