Shoegazing | Two new pairs

This is going to be a quick post today as, to be honest, I’m having a bit of a week of it.  I’m on a teaching course (PTTLS) to prepare me for my secondment to our Training Centre next month; it’s an amazing opportunity and I’m thrilled to be taking a new course and building up new knowledge but I wasn’t really prepared for the amount of coursework.  Yesterday the course day was 9-4 and then I got home, switched on the computer and prepared the work for today, amended assignments and filled in paperwork until 11pm. It’s been like that every day this week and I’m absolutely exhausted! I’m also frustrated as I did really well with my exercise last week and managed several runs and workouts but this week has been a complete washout as I just haven’t had the time.  It can be so challenging trying to fit exercise into your daily routine can’t it?  Added on to this, the middle row of keys on my laptop has decided to stop working so I am writing this on a tiny netbook! I have no idea what I’m going to do long term to solve this; it is quite a challenge blogging on a mini computer that doesn’t have any software on it!

It is probably bad timing too after the post I wrote previously about struggling with time management as, more than ever this week the chores and the to-do’s are now building up.  I absolutely can’t wait for this weekend and am really looking forward to having some downtime.  I have so much to catch up on and I wanted to have a good blog reading session to see what you’ve all been up to as well as schedule some posts in for whilst I’m at End of the Road festival the following weekend.

So, just a quick post today – and not a very deep one! Just wanted to share with you a couple of pairs of shoes that have been added to the wardrobe over the last week.

1. Clarks sandals* – £31.49
2. Art of Soule espadrilles* – £30.60

Both of these pairs will be coming to Florida with me next month for trogging around Theme Parks and outlets in.  I am completely in love with the sandals, they feel so sturdy and well made and are incredibly comfortable.  The espadrilles are unbelievably light and will be perfect for throwing in my suitcase and wearing with rolled up skinnies.  I wonder if the weather will hold for me to wear them this weekend too or if I’ll have to wait until my holiday to give these summer-y shoes an outing!
