Today (Thursday 28th Feb) I went up to London to the Royal Academy, I had a ticket for the Manet Exhibition, which I had been looking forward to for some time. I had decided to take the whole day off and make sure I had a leisurely morning getting ready. I took my time deciding what I was going to wear, (Matalan Grey and Black panel dress) and doing my make up, however I had major problems with my nails, and ended up actually having to re-do them twice!
One at Victoria I could put some more money on my Oyster and then get the tube over to Green Park for the RA, of course there were no seats on the train, and by the time I had walked up Piccadilly I was once again regretting those boots. I should know better by now, function before form, they are lovely and warm, and great to look at but for a full afternoon on your feet, no, not good.
