I know that shopping is a national past time but the older I get the less time I want to spend in shopping centres. Hence, I don’t go shopping very often and as a result my running shoes which should have lasted 100 KM probably lasted 1000. It’s not that I don’t fancy buying beautiful clothes, bags or shoes, it’s the thought of spending hours in and out of shops trying different items and paying insane amounts of money that I don’t enjoy. I feel that my time and money should be better invested in other endeavors.
But today I did venture into Westfield, went straight to Rebel Sports and bought my new running shoes. I was out of the shopping centre in 40 minutes – hooray! If you are a runner you’ll like this: Mizuno Wave Sayonara 3 – very comfy, a really lightweight shoe. And they fit perfectly-had a Cinderella moment trying them on, except I don’t think these are shoes for princesses.
Cinderella’s glass slippers are shoes I’ve never wanted to fill. Actually, maybe I did as a child and in my early teens. But in recent years fairy tales, glamour and glitter have ranked very low in my hierarchy of needs.
