*walking on air*

Honestly, that is what it feels like with these Crocs on!! They arrived this morning in time for me to wear the fuchsia pair to harvest festival...drew a few interested/surprised stares from other parents, but I'm not one to let that sort of thing bother me, no sireeee. They are SO comfortable; I cannot stress this enough. I have never worn a pair of shoes as comfortable as this before. They are incredibly light - I spent the day taking them off to give to friends to hold - they had to feel how light they are. And they look pretty funky, too. I am very pleased (can you tell??!!) - just trying to decide now which ones to get next...

Harvest Festival was great; A's year performed a very jolly song entitled 'Big Red Combine Harvester', complete with actions for each verse. A (being one of the smallest) was right at the front so I had quite a good view of her from the end of my pew at the back of the church. She looked like she was having fun!! F's class recited a poem entitled simply 'Autumn', by someone called 'Mary F' - it was lovely, they did really well. The service lasted about 40 minutes, just the right length of time for the children to stay quiet and behaving themselves!!

Came home for a little while after church, and then went out for a girly lunch which brought with it plenty of opportunities for baby squidging, as both of my friends have teeny tinies - both girls. I managed to keep Elizabeth asleep on me for the duration of Sue's lunch, so she was able to eat in peace, and I had a fabby cuddle into the bargain.

And, just because I haven't uploaded a photo of either of the kids for, ooh, at least 48 hours, I'll leave you with a familiar face, taken this evening:

P.S. I nearly forgot! Whilst I was in town at lunchtime, I posted my parcel for the vintage book swap - I won't say what I've included, just in case my recipient happens upon my blog, but when she's received it I'll tell all. I had a lot of fun putting it all together; I will now wait anxiously to hear a) that it got to its intended destination, and b) that it is well-received. I do worry about such things...

Hmmm. Those crocs do look comfy... But I can't quite believe plastic shoes won't give me horrid blisters.... Maybe next summer.

The pink is purdy but I'm still not sure. I'm convinced I'll get sweaty stinky feet!!!

Harvest Festival sounded lovely. I must admit I do miss those schooly things.

I was trying to explain to some friends about them (we saw a family of Crocs in Stow) and how comfy they are supposed to be, but they didn't believe me...I think it's one of those things you have to try to be converted.

I have been fretting about my book swap too...for the same reasons.
