no shoes day...

No, I do see the irony, I really do... In a blog called "better than shoes", dedicated to those things in life which compared to a pair of Louboutins come first, comes a post with the title "no shoes day..."

But the truth of it is that no matter how much I love shoes, and believe me I DO LOVE them, and no matter how many pairs of those I own (last time I started counting them I gave up before I had to go to the basement storage to inventory the ones that are sleeping there...), there comes a time that all that matters is one day, just one day, that I do not have to put them on! That I can treat my feet to a bath maybe and then just have my slippers on for the whole day!

My weekends are quiet.... boring even... I don't like to go out on Saturday night and usually I'm exhausted from running errands all day. My greatest pleasure is staying in, especially during the loooooong winter months, cosy on the sofa, a cup of tea, a good film and the love of my life next to me... Bliss!!! And for my feet, nothing but these beauties:

I know, I know, not sexy, not awesome, not spectacular, childish and funny even,  but goodness me they are comfy! And If I have to walk on Stella's towering platform boots all week, I certainly deserve these over the weekend, don't I ;)

warm, November sun!

Sitting on my chair in the office, my back hurts like hell as apparently I did something wrong during my Pilates class last night (or last week... don't remember...), I had a migraine all night and slept miserably, I need to finish this case today otherwise I will be stressed all weekend and all in all, I should feel like s**t.... but, there's the thing, I don't!! I really don't!

Why? Because the warm, November sun is up in the sky and sends generously his brilliant rays through my window to warm up my back and my face and my heart! And I realise that it really takes very little for a person to have a moment of sheer bliss, a moment when all the bad is gone and forgotten and maybe, just maybe, we can believe it won't come back :) But even if the bad returns, this moment here, right now, is full of good! It's precious! And this is a moment of happiness!

I have been under the weather for some time and this has been reflected in the absence of any posts lately... I have promised that I will only write about good stuff in this blog and I will keep my promise, so be patient with me through my periods of silence and remember that I always recover and come back to you.

I am an optimist by nature and always looking out for anything that can put a smile on my face so that I can also share it with you and perhaps put a smile on your faces as well. Today's treat is the sun! So if the sun is shinning in your part of the world, enjoy it, absorb his healing powers and take a moment to appreciate life.

Isn't that "better than shoes"? Believe you me, it's better than my new Fendi sandals ;)
