Juneathon 2009 Day 26 – from bumpkin to WAG

Thanks for all your messages of support yesterday, I might even attempt a run again next week, but not tomorrow, as tomorrow I’m scrapping the Staplehurst 10k which I probably wouldn’t finish until midnight and therefore waste valuable drinking time and instead I’m going to be a WAG and watch Shaun play football which he was coerced into doing by Gary.  I said to Shaun, do you even know how to play football? and he said um, er, well, I’ll just run around and try not to get beaten up and tackle some people and try to pass the ball to people wearing the right colour and that sounded about right to me and so tomorrow I’ll be swapping my wellies for a pair of heels, in particular these ones

Pink & black boots

if they turn up in the post today and I haven’t worn heels for ages and ages and only actually owned one pair that I threw away when I moved here because a) I can’t walk in heels and look like a man in drag tottering around; b) heels hurt my feet and I’m too much of a wuss to let vanity take precedence over comfort; and c) I’d be taller than Shaun if I wore anything higher than a pair of my variously coloured completely flat Converse but I was browsing amazon looking at books and accidentally wandered into the shoe department and I saw these boots and thought they look very cool and don’t look very high and they’re not made of dead animals and they don’t even cost £10 and therefore I MUST OWN THOSE BOOTS and now I’m going to, hurrah.

And I seem to have turned into a girl and blogged about boots, for which I’m very sorry and I did Juneathon this morning, honest.  I was going to go out on the Pashley but it was raining and as the rowing machine was still out and I didn’t have to spend 15 minutes unfolding it, I went on that for half an hour.

  • If you’re going to be a WAG, you will have to start running in a Juicy Couture tracksuit. Possibly while carrying a large handbag containing a small dog. (My knowledge of WAG fashion accessories may be slightly out of date, in which case apologies.)

    Anyway, thanks for the blog, which I have very recently discovered and have been reading with great enjoyment. 🙂

  • Thanks for the tip Sheri, I will investigate WAG fashion accessories, although I’m not sure my cat will appreciate a small dog.

  • The boots don’t look very high????

  • Maybe you could substitute the cat for the small dog. I don’t suppose there are laws against it, although you may get ostracised by the other WAGs (Victoria, Colleen, that one who is married to Stevie G, etc) if you break the rules too blatantly…

    The boots look high enough to me, Najma…. I guess it depends what you are used to!

  • The boots look too high to me! I’m used to flats or one inch heels. I thought Cathy would find them too high with what she’s used to.

  • They were higher than I thought they’d be. I only wore them for about an hour before changing into my flats. And that was even sitting down, but it was hot and I think my feet swelled up. I’m going to give them another test run on Wednesday.
