But no! And as with anything that I've lusted over for long enough, I get bored and move on. Well, that's not totally true. I mean if a pair were gifted to me this Christmas, I'd willingly take them but I'm over the drooling stage.
Anyway, on a whim I ordered these.
Boden Harper Boot In Aubergine Currently £71.40 (sorry I can't be bothered to work out the discount)
They've arrived and I love them. The colour is slightly less intense than the photo would suggest, not actually a bad thing. I ordered a 39 my usual size and they're a good fit. Oh and did I mention the padded sole? My feet are going to love me.
And I also slipped this pair in.
Boden Harper Boot In Black £59.40 (40% discount)
Funny how the black are cheaper than the aubergine but I guess it's the wooden heel that's putting people off. Personally I like it as it's different to what I already have. It isn't as gingery as it looks in the photo above anyway.
So I guess I have my black ankle boot for this season. They're not the statement boots I envisaged but hey they feel nice and to be quite honest, I'm fed up of looking.
I also ordered the Bow Heel currently £97.30 (30% discount) but they're a tad too pretty for me so they'll be winging their way back to Johnnie B shortly.
Anyway, a very, very successful day at this end. Three solid hours of online Christmas shopping this morning. That's 16 ticks on my presents to buy list. Happy with that. A few hours with friends for a long overdue catch up over lunch and a lazy evening at home with a M&S ready made meal thingy. Bit of a lie in tomorrow (whoop) as the son has a pretty bad sore throat so no rugby for him (although his lunch of sushi seemed to go down well. Akin to eating cardboard if you ask me). Things are suddenly looking up (not the sore throat obviously).
Have you managed to bag a bargain today? I'd love to share mine but the kids sometimes look at the blog. In fact they've been known to go as far as logging on to my Amazon account to snoop. And search the house for presents. So naughty! Top tip: hide presents in locked suitcases and keep the key on your person AT ALL TIMES.
