Hello my name is Jeremy and I am a friend of Simmy. It's so nice to meet you all at last. I was beginning to think that I would never make by debut into this blogworld. I mean, do you know how long it took her to make my shoes? Of course a chap never goes out without the correct shoes. So I have been standing in my bare feet for two days looking at Raj's easter garden. Now I can think of worse places to stand. At least I've been able to watch that tree blossom and the caterpillar metamorphasise but I have had to cancel two important meetings in town (that's London town to you foreign types). You see I am a tour guide and I take all these foreign chappies around London. We do the usual haunts - Queenie's palace, a few galleries, Downing street, Trafalgar square, Soho - oh you know where I mean. I try to add a little bit of sparkle depending on which country my visitors are from. You see the American's like to go to the theatre and take tea at Fortnum's, the Japanese like the famous sites... oh blimey Simmy's coming back and I was supposed to be telling you about the shoes.
Quickly listen to this. She had four attempts at making my shoes! Here is a photograph of all of them. The ones on the left were the first pair - look at the size of them - she had to turn them into my feet! The second pair - can I think of anything positive to say about them? They were too tight and what a ghastly style. The third pair - blue. I ask you has the girl got any fashion sense? These were a cut down pattern of the final ones. Luckily she abandoned them halfway. Finally, thanks to Vicki over at Turkey Feathers I got the shoes of my dreams. Brown, sturdy, room for movement and rather stylish (yes, I know they have black laces but what can I do). Vicky I love you and if you ever come to England I will take you to tea somewhere nice in the Cotswolds.
Must go, she's coming but here's another photograph of yours truly. Love and kisses to you all, Jeremy. xxxxx
PS I'm not usually the complaining type but that document case she made for me is a tad too small for my use. I need a briefcase or satchel type bag - preferably leather. Could someone have a word in her ear please?
