It took a lot of flying to get to Melbourne wings are tired.

I've had a couple of days just relaxing and enjoying the company of my family......So great to have them all around, so much to see and do.... with Birthdays and Easter making it all very special, with the Christening to come. Lots of lovely food and wonderful coffee....and I'm spending a lot of time with the grandchildren.

"Nana... did you know the Easter Bunny comes tomorrow " says a little voice, "will you help me make a nest ? "

The nest is done and waiting for the visit

Looking forward to GREAT COFFEE at Errols.
Check this great restaurant out NOW

When you're a woman of a "certain age " buying shoes is a big problem, especially if you want something that has a certain style....a bit of pizzaz ! you know what I mean....

I usually end up with a very matronly looking health shoe, bought from the local pharmacy, or a pair of slides that get worn to death simply because they are just so easy to slip into...... but yesterday as I was wandering thru one of our many arcades, tired and footsore, I happened upon a little shop that seemed to be selling a bit of everything , and these shoes caught my eye.

They look about my size, I thought, then dismissed the idea.......

Could do a lot for the "basic black" if they fitted, I told myself.

No - they'd never fit my once slim foot, now a bit puffy and large around the ankle, the rather large bunion adding to the problem. (Age has SO much to answer for)

but I found my hand reaching out for them and before you could say "hey ho silver" they were on....and they were mine !! MANOLO BLAHNIK, EAT YOUR HEART OUT.

They fit ! They are comfortable ! They have HEELS ! - 3cms high, (that's one inch in the old money) so I feel just so much taller,
and elegant.

Can't wait to wear them at my grand daughter's christening,
I'm sure she'll think I'm just so chic !
