Last night while sion_a was out I finished colouring my dress, and laced up the back with the coloured ribbons I'd bought in the morning. Pictures here.
Today I finally managed to replace my falling-apart trainers. For months and months now I have been whinging about my trainers -- the insoles are coming apart, and they're really too grubby to wear to work now -- but failing to find any replacements which were what I wanted (neutral colours but not all white, fairly chunky sole, proper shoe rather than these open-backed things). I didn't want to pay too much for new ones because the ones I'm replacing (which lasted for ages) only cost about a tenner, & I felt I shouldn't need to pay much more than that. Finally found what I was looking for on eBay, and won them today: they're black and white, with what look like quite chunky soles, and only cost £7.50 including postage. And they're practically-new (only been worn once, in the gym, apparently).
Unfortunately, neither the trainers nor the steel toecapped boots (another eBay purchase, another thing I've been hunting for in my size for years and have managed to find for under 8 quid) will arrive before I go to Glastonbury. This time on Wednesday night I should be in a tent! ... Just hope I'm feeling in a more partyish mood by then.
