A foot themed day.

Yesterday turned out to be one of those days again. Analysing its contents I realised that it was for the most part, centred around feet. It began with this Granny trying her best to cut her very long toe nails. Toe nails that have during the course of her sixty six years turned from ordinary toe nails to something akin to steel.  Tried the nail cutters. No joy. Tried some scissors. They bent. Nearly went searching in desperation for a hacksaw. After resorting to using the very sharp (had horrible visions of being whisked off to hospital at this point with severed toe) kitchen scissors I somehow managed to make some headway and cut them shorter.

Next, we journeyed to Halifax for some walking boots. (notice now the consistent theme?) Ventured into Millet’s where they had a sale on. K managed to get her boots fairly quickly, whilst I had to try quite a few pairs on. The final one’s that fit me perfectly and that I took to the counter to pay for, actually turned out NOT to be in the sale. The total amount came to over a hundred pounds. £100! I very nearly fell on the floor! For walking boots! Cripes, I won’t dare miss going on any more of the walks at that price!


You couldn’t help but notice either that there were a preponderance of flower baskets and flower displays etc up and down the entire towns streets. Hanging from the awning at the bus station as we arrived, neatly arranged in flower beds every where you glanced, or in arrangements along the shopping mall. What the? Then I spotted a sign. Halifax in Bloom. Aha!  So that explained it!  No wonder that everywhere you looked there were flowers dotted about!  I felt sorry for anyone who was over six foot tall though. They would be constantly banging their heads on the flower baskets hanging everywhere.

We had not been back home long before the telephone rang. Member of the family badly needing my assistance to sort out my sisters computer (one of my cast offs) as it had contracted a virus. Hmm. And that is where the rest of yesterday was spent. Sorting that little lot out. Not that it was caused by feet you understand. Unless of course it was a foot virus.

TG  Enjoy the photos I took round and about Halifax in Bloom yesterday.

  1. At 100 pounds those boots need to be walking 24/7.
    There are days I go shopping and like something,
    see the 21st C price, gulp and recall when something
    like running shoes could be bought for $10.00 Canadian.
    Now these are $100+ (Canadian) and really they’re just
    running shoes. Big Smiles

    • I agree Happy Flower! I won’t dare miss out any walks in future, nor get them dirty or spoiled. Can’t quite fathom out how I’m going to achieve it all. Might just keep them for wearing in the flat……. 😉

  2. Ah yes – Halifax. The children were born there and spent their first ten years there. We moved not long after the town centre had been pedestrianised – it did make it boring. Step daughter had a Saturday job in the Piece Hall in one of the shops. Mind when we first moved to Halifax the Piece Hall was still a wholesale greengrocers and similar.

    • Boring but safer to wander around Christine. I confess I am not a Halifax fan for shopping. The times that I have gone there to search for something and come away empty handed……….still I suppose I ought to consider that a good thing. One way of saving money..
