Then on Thursday I went out to lunch and a shopping trip with a friend. We have an outlet shopping place in Portsmouth and I found a skirt I had previously tried on in White Stuff, reduced from £49.95 to £19 and these amazing (well, I think so) Radley shoes reduced from £150 to £44. They are actually half a size smaller than I usually take and I don't think I could wear them for long periods but I just had to have them! My friend said I shouldn't buy them if they weren't comfortable but that didn't come into it; they just had to come home with me!
It rather reminded me of the clever Edward Monkton card.
