    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    My boys always give me THAT look when I buy new shoes!

    Although since the youngest discovered the custom Converse, he has a little more understanding.

    Just cut them neat and paint them, they look nice and then they are practical! The big talon things aren't!

    Do you wear those Roman sandaly abominations as well?

    These are gorgeous and short enough that I can still do what I need to do. And it takes an hour every four weeks - my nail woman is a genius.

    But as well at the Irregular Choice, I have a great fondness for custom Converse - I have about 5 or 6 pairs....this is one of them..

    Good morning, all!

    My OH seems have more shoes than me - and they are almost identical - black formal, brown or light suede Hush Puppy types.

    Are those your nails, Flick?

    I just don't get them, but then again the shoes thing I only don't get because of the ridiculous nature of the shoes, or people who can spend all day just laying in the sun.

    But I do understand the idea, people don't understand why I need 10 pairs of running shoes (well unless you are a runner and then you would)

    also: Just done a count and think I have more than 10 as I forgot my xc spikes.

    Actually Flick, you must be pretty rich to afford all those fancy shoes.
    I'm jealous, really see.

    Now, although I may be under the thumb already, there's plenty of fine young men out there, especially from Wales (), that would probably snap your arm off, wearing shoes like that.

    Is it a Potteries thing - you know " Royal Doulton Shoes" or something?

    I get that - my boss and one of my colleagues are runners.

    I can spend all day lying in the sun - as long as I have a drink and my kindle. That's pretty much what I did on holiday.

    Although it was recently pointed out to me that if I am having to spend my entire holiday too tired to do anything but collapse on a sun lounger, I need to reevaluate my life!
