She who laughs last...

My darling man really is such a super powerful person... at work.

Clearly there is a strict hierarchy in place in our home, the munchkins (with their outdoor voices and tiny tantrumettes) reign supreme, closely followed by our housekeeper (upset Albena and the entire apple cart will topple) and after that there is the au pair to keep happy (the school run would be impossible without my little Polish sidekick), and last but not least come James and myself (in no particular order you understand).

Last night James arrived home from work with his obnoxious work colleague Martin, they were full of their own importance, James was feeling incredibly brave. He often finds his own sense of humour terribly entertaining when in the company of a minion, oh how he laughs...

"Things have gone down hill dramatically since they gave women the vote," he guffawed,

"well, when we allowed them to wear shoes, all hope was lost."

OHMYGOD!

Does he really consider himself superior to me in the great scheme of things?

I enjoy my shoes, I must say. Take these for example. I bought them today with James' own credit card, online. James could have a good guess at much I spent on them, and even then he would have to add a zero. Oh the satisfaction that is owning a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Swarovski embellished sandals!

I shall use them to walk all over my man (sigh)!

I can't see them darling! and I'm desperate to see what David plans to buy me for my birthday ;-)

Expatmum said...

No no sweetie, let him continue to think this way. Then he can't possibly guess what you might be up to - after all, you wouldn't have the gray matter to be doing anything behind his back!

Darling Nunhead Mum of One,

I really am such an air head, I posted the link the wrong way. It works now. We must discuss gifts!

Sweet Expatmum,

OHMYGOD, clearly! Thank you.

Omigod, I think I'm going to have to change my blog picture!!!

I have started dropping casual hints now (have printed off the page and put it in his briefcase with the words "my darling wife's birthday, 1 June"). i've got a few weeks to plan for this, and I might need your help - can you wear them when we next see you?

Following your sage advice, DH has already consulted me on the 'maternity bracelet' purchase, so i shall have to wait a little longer to persuade him to buy me such a beautiful pair of shoes...although I do know his CC details off by heart. Of course, heels and pregnancy are pretty much mutually exclusive, so will have to mount them in a box a la Tate Modern and stare lovingly at them [sigh]

Darling Dulwich Mum, despite your lovely purchase I feel James's credit card is in need of further damage following those comments. May I suggest some matching jewellery?

Sweet Nunhead Mum of One,

Clearly! I shall wear them on Saturday to Waitrose in Beckenham when we are stocking up on organic veg.

Darling Kelly,

What a super plan! Great heels always provide such pleasure, even just to stare at...

Oh Rosie darling,

You do have a point, I shall just scoot on over to the Bootle and Dunthorne web site for a quick browse...

I just realised that I should have done this ages ago. For all you shoe 'admirers' out there (fetish is such an ugly word, don't you think?), check out this site. Shoes to die for - as tested by experts...

Perfect Potty Mummy,

OHMYGOD! It is stunning. Thank you so much for that.

Those shoes are to die for! (of course I thought of Nunheadmumofone immediately)...

I wonder how good they would look on my feet with the sweatpants I habitually wear...strictly for comfort and warmth here in Canada you know...

Nunhead Mum of One said...

Thank you potty mummy!!! And Aims, you know me so well! And darling Dulwich Mum, would it be to OTT to wear my gorgeous footwear on Saturday? Bear in mind we're going straight to London Zoo afterwards.....
