As outlined in yesterday's post, I had been getting barely any sleep. It had gotten to the stage where I was in jeans constantly (so unlike me!) because I couldn't actually think to wear anything. It was a case of whatever item of clothing came to hand first *scolds self*. When you're a parent a whole new level of Zombie can be reached. Within no time at all you're walking around, eyes half closed, murmuring goodness knows what. It's an attractive state to be in....
So yes, yesterday! I was beyond a zombie state if I'm honest. My bones were tired and everything hurt. There were actual tears because I was so tired.
So, did I go for a nap?
Did I heck! Well unless you count the accidental nap in the car when we were en route to Ballymena on the futile search for a suite for our NEW HOUSE!!! EEEP!
Yup! We are moving home! Come the end of August we'll have a different front door, different front garden and different post code. We're all immensely looking forward to it but at the same time it throws up a lot of issues. Moving home isn't easy at the best of times. With my added mental health issues, most pointedly, the agoraphobia, it is proving exceptionally hard to come to terms with. So my thinking is to busy myself sourcing out the bits and pieces we need.
Anyway! Yes! We were heading to Ballymena (it wasn't a fruitful trip) and as Lee was helping me down the step he asked if I was intending to go in my slippers....
I hadn't even noticed they were still on my feet. I could have swore I had changed into my wee pumps. But, no, I looked down and sure enough, there were my Homies. I actually felt a little bereft at the thought of removing them but there is an unspoken rule ladies and gents.
Whenever you possibly can, wear shoes outside. Slippers are not a good look.
Before the Slipper Brigade come at me flailing their quilted slippers in protest I've done it. Intentionally AND unintentionally. I have ventured out in my slippers. However, from this day forth I'm making a concerted effort NEVER to do it again!
With that in mind I've a few fantastic flats to show you. They all look relatively comfortable... well, they're not going to be as comfortable as those perfectly grooved slippers currently encasing your totesies but y'know they'll do ;)
So, 'fess up! Are you a repeat offender? A member of the Slipper Brigade? Have I done enough to persuade you to change your ways?
I'm changing my ways ;)
