Wet feet

It snowed again last night. Pretty much all evening in fact. But by the time we woke up this morning it was raining, which resulted in some lovely deep slush to wade through. Very pleasant. And just to mkae things even better, the boots I wear for work have now entirely given up on any pretense of being waterproof. By the time I got halfway across the carpark my socks were soaked. Not a good start to the day. And because the stuff that was soaking its way into my shoes was basically liquid ice my toes went numb. Mmm, nice. I’ve spent the whole day at work with wet feet. Seriously, they did not dry out at all in the entire 8 and three quarter hours I was there. Well, possibly they did dry slightly and my toes at least thawed out, but at no point today did I not have wet socks. I’m sure a whole day of cold wetness cannot be good for my poor feet. Hmm, maybe it’s time I invested in a new pair of shoes… or got my gorgeous Austria winter boots repaired. Or failing that Spring could just turn up – we are over halfway through February after all…

This is a bit of a crap blog post really isn’t it? Sorry about that; I’ve done so much work today that I think my brain has gone and switched itself off now.
I do have one bit of news, but I don’t really want to talk about it too much yet in case I jinx things….

  1. Have you heard of this amazing invention called ‘wellington boots’? Apparently they are totally waterproof and enable you to carry your pretty shoes in a bag and then put them on when you reach dry land, thereby preventing trench foot, amputation and cold feet in the office!

    Then again, any excuse for shoe shopping has to be good.

  2. Hi Bev,

    Hope you are well. I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while, although I’ve never posted any comments. I was reflecting back on this post and was just curious if you ever got around to getting new boots? If so, can you let me know what you got? Perhaps you can give me some ideas.

    My boots are terrible. They’ve been leaking like crazy. Every time I trudge through the deep snow and slush in them, my feet get completely drenched and frozen. I may aswell be barefoot. As a result, I already have a severe cold and will probably end up having my feet amputated before Winter is over. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Lauren – I actually did finally buy some boots. After allowing the boyfriend to convince me that they had to be an investment and I wasn’t allowed to buy cheap ones from Deichmann I went and bought a pair of Goretex ones for 99 euros. I love them! They’re really warm (sheepskin lining) and comfortable and fit my feet perfectly. Goretex is the way to go!
