Number one on my list since about October was these boots. I have chunky calves, which makes finding proper boots that fit me is difficult, so when I found not one but two pairs in Clarks, I was over the moon. Sadly, I could only afford one of the pairs. I’m glad I got them because I’ve worn them most days since, but I’ve lusted after the second pair none the less. The pair I bought were sensible. The pair I had to leave behind were just so pretty! I promised myself that I would get the boots when I finished the thesis as a treat, but I couldn’t afford them then, so restrained myself.
Today I was walking past Clarks and noticed they had a sale on… Yup, the boots I wanted were in the sale! A bit of mental budgeting and some judicious usage of discount vouchers later, I am the proud owner of a pair of boots that should have cost me Â£80. I paid Â£25.
I also caught every single bus I wanted to today, completed all my errands, and had some very nice emails from people.
All in all, a good day.
