I do not believe it- I have developed fat feet! On Friday I have to go to a Sex in The City Cocktail Party. No , I do not mean I will be mingling with the stars! The event is being held in a bar 5 minutes from my home, with my friend Natalie (a.k.a The Liquid Muse) creating cocktails for us. Anyway- the dress code is "glam and heels". So, this morning I dusted off my sparkly mini dress and rummaged around in the back of the wardrobe for my one and only pair of high heeled shoes (bought for someones wedding). They are divine- tiny little kitten heels, delicate, jewelled little slip ons. I was horrified when I tried to put them on. NO WAY! It was like Shrek trying to squish his podgy trotter into Cinderellas glass slipper!
I was in shock! The rest of me is more or less the same shape and size as 10 years ago ( ever vigilant of what I eat and lots of running) but my feet-like Hobbits feet! What has happened? I put it down to too many years of wearing comfortable shoes to enable me to run , skip, hop and jump with my children. My feet have experienced middle aged spread!
Not sure I will find a remedy for my "plates of meat". I have never heard of a diet aimed at producing slim feet! Wonder if the instructor at the gym has a special work out for Fat Feet? I think I will have to accept my extremeties as they are and think positively ( at least I will have good balance!)
So Friday, I will be wearing my sparkly mini dress, but I am off now to find some sparkly flip flops or tainers to wear with it!
1 part orange juice
1 part sweetened coconut milk
3 parts pineapple juice
2-4 parts (depending on how horrendous the date has been) dark rum
Squeeze of lime juice
Dash (a heavy handed one) of cointreau
Shake all the above together and pour over crushed ice. Make a jug full, you will want more (suffer the consequences tomorrow!)
This can be made non-alcoholic, just remove the pain numbing alcohol!
