Mum on the Run – Shoes glorious shoes, there’s nothing quite like them….

Oh golly, my head is all over the place tonight. Do you ever have days like that? I think that I might have a fever. Bieber fever to be precise because Justin is playing Birmingham these evening. We also have Girls Aloud in town – can Birmingham really stand the pace? Can we take the strain? Not only that but it’s all happening less than 3 miles from where we live. Quite a few of my friends have gone to see Justin Bieber on the basis that they are “accompanying” their daughters. Yeah right!

I have also just been called by Radio WM to see whether I would like to speak on air tonight about Kerry Katona’s wardrobe malfunction. For those of you who haven’t seen the pictures (I hadn’t until I googled it) I have to say I’ve been there and got the t-shirt, as eluded to in a post last week. It’s not a pretty sight. I was asked whether I had had any wardrobe malfunctions and would I like to share them on air. Yes I have and no thanks, I wouldn’t. Absolutley not. But I would like to pre-record the interview please because I am planning on either a) being asleep or b) watching Dallas on catch up when it’s due to be broadcast.

Not only that but I have had an email to tell me that my lovely new Nike trainers have been delivered – although not to our address. Apparently I was out at the time they were delivered (I wasn’t) and the card through the door will tell me where they are currently residing. Except there is no card so I’m at a bit of a loss.

I am also slightly traumatised about not having made it into Whistles today to give the Grazia voucher a run for its money but at least I managed to get around to paying a parking ticket that I got last week (don’t tell the hubby).  Although thinking about it, that means that any potential budget for a Whistles purchase has been reduced to below a level at which you can buy anything from Whistles. On the other hand I promised someone that I would go and investigate the Zatchels in Selfridges tomorrow so I need to go there anyway….

So, what with Justin, the radio, the trainers, Whistles and several meetings today, I haven’t had time to get my head around writing a blog post. Let alone a vaguely stylish/fashion related/witty one. What I think I will do instead is take a deep breath and leave you with a picture of some lovely shoes that would work really well in my summer wardrobe. They are the Kat Maconie Sandra in grey/nude and I love them. Sigh.

    Love the shoes, saw some quite similar in Clarks today and thought how nice they were.

    Good luck with Sports Direct Beth….a few of my blog readers had a nightmare ordering their Merrells from them and got in touch with me to warn others. Hope your trainers arrive…keep phoning and tormenting them was the advice I got. They have a shocking customer service so you need to be persistent x

      Hi Avril – good to hear from you. I had great service – constant emails and updates to tell me when they would be delivered. OK so they forgot to put the card through the door to tell me that my neighbour had them but she brought them round AND I got a free Sports Direct mug. Oh my, the excitement!Perhaps I was just lucky. Sorry your readers didn't have so much luck. Perhaps I will quit whilst I am ahead!

      Me too – how tragic is that? I love the mug. In fact myself and Mr SG are fighting over it. I can feel another purchase from SD coming on so that we can get another one!
