Best Foot Forward

I've been wanting to buy a new pair of boots for a while, but had to leave it until I'd taken care of Xmas presents etc. and was sure I still had some money to spare.

So I finally got round to ordering them yesterday afternoon around 3 PM, expecting I'd see them some time next week. Instead of which they arrived about half an hour ago - although I hadn't paid for it the vendor sent them by Royal Mail next day delivery! Colour me impressed!

Between that, actually getting my shopping done this early, and the unseasonably warm weather (about 11c today) it's shaping up to be a nice Xmas.
