What big feet you have!

Here are my brand new beautiful brown suede cowboy boots. Whadyathink? And more importantly, how much do you think I paid for them?
It's a pity you can't stroke their chocolatey, soft loveliness.
(I cannot believe I've just spent twenty minutes taking those photos and making them into a photo cloud. I have work to do! Lots of work to do! I must legitimise this waste of time with some sort of pseudo-pedagogical application.)

Ooooh! They look so, so soft.

Work just gets in the way, doesn't it. You were made for better things than work, Lesley. Let them eat cake, I say.

I can easily waste a few hours surfing through Go Fug Yourself. Hmm... but, can it truly be termed a waste? I mean these things matter. You wouldn't want to offend the serfs with a poor footwear choice now would you.

So will I clean the mud off my boots or just buy a new pair...hmm... I'm tempted. I'm definitely looking a little too paysanne these days. Ballroom dancing in my mud caked second hand hiking boots...? Enough said.

Anyway, must dash... plough a field or two before lunch...

Ooooh! Those boots do look lovely!

Now with the "How much do you think I paid for them?" When someone asks that question it means one of two things, they were either ridiculously cheap and a so you couldn't not buy them or horrendously expensive and even you can't believe how much you paid for them. I'm going with €50 on the cheap side, what with them being so soft and lovely and suedey and you being sensible (?) and me not having a clue really what the Euro is worth in France!

Now I am desperately wondering what I can make a pcture cloud out of!

More seething jealousy here, this time Claire and Lucie .....
they want some

they're fab boots and I love your photo cloud - and I'm going to go lower than Ms Mac to 45 Euros - not because they look cheap but because I reckon you have a good eye for a bargain and there may be some sales around at the moment

Allez, 62 euros and 35 cents...

That cloudy thing is very cool. Did you used to make videos for U2?

Lesley said...

31€. A bargain don't you think? (The Scottish girls were closest of course)

Neil: U2 reference way before my time, do not understand.

Neil said...

Before your time? Really? This from a girl who remembers 'Black Betty' and 70s scout discos? Your collage of boots photos is exactly the same as the video for 'Even Better Than The Real Thing' and left me with the same sense of dizziness!

Lesley said...

Thanks Neil. Note to self: delete all posts that refer to any pre '90s events.

Ms Mac said...

€31? I'd have bought 2 pairs at that price!
