Someone asked about the shoes on yesterday's post. I got them in the Lulu Guinness sale but I don't wear them - they're too beautiful. Of course I probably should, how daft am I? I can just hear my mother's voice, 'now she's only gone and spent her money on a pair of shoes she won't wear', but instead they sit on a shelf in my office like works of art and make me smile every time I pass them. This 'book bag' I do use, however - it was a present from my husband when I finished my second novel and I definitely felt I deserved it!
