Shoe of the week

I'd be up for the challenge of wearing this for the whole of the Jubilee year

My intention was to research pastel shoes as I'd spotted a pair of flats that I thought would be perfect for Shoe of the Week.   Unfortunately, these shoes from Schuh grabbed my attention first.  Now, these are perfect for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year. 

I'm not really sure how or if I'll be celebrating the Queen's jubilee but I can remember that I celebrated her Silver Jubilee weekend in 1977 (I was five) wearing a red, white and blue homemade dress at a school party, then attended a fancy dress street party the following day.  For her Golden Jubilee, I spent the afternoon in a bar enjoying 50p drinks while watching the big procession in London when Jimmy Savile was wowing the crowds in his trademark tracksuit.  For the 2012 celebrations, I think I'd like to participate in a proper English afternoon tea with champagne to celebrate the Queen's special year, wearing these shoes and maybe a grown up version of the red, white and blue dress.  Are you making plans to celebrate?

Great excuse to buy those shoes! I remember the jubilee street parties back in 1977, we were allowed to wear red, white and blue instead of school uniform and got a mug and an enamel badge. x
PS I didn't know Opie was English. Jax is, he was in Byker Grive!

Hi lovely,
Thanks for you comment. I have all of Bernadette Strachen's books apart from one called 'why do we have to live with men?'...if you happen to have that one?
