Girls day out in Rennes

The girls set out for Rennes so that Best Friend in All The World, who is on holiday from London, could see Drummer boy's glamorous new flat and how he is coping with his new independant life. She is his godmother and takes her responsibilities seriously.

The first room that we saw was a clear demonstration of Drummer boy's life skills...it belongs to another less fortunate boy who must redecorate it.






First things first, the collection of beer mats has been carefully arranged.





A further demonstration of Drummer boy's life skills: Girlfriend is not only roadie and chauffeur, she is now secretary as well, and is responsible for his personal administration. She has won a permanent place in my heart for organising the purchase of a very heavy box of Belgian chocolates for my birthday.



After this brief interlude, the real reason for our visit to Rennes emerged...
The Sales.

The sales were nearly over, but I happened to know of a little antique shop where secondhand designer clothes are sometimes available. A strange change came over BFATW, her nostrils flared and she dived into the clothes rails like a woman possessed.



She had seen something very attractive in the shop window, which turned out to be exactly her size, with a nice sensible low heel, so that she can walk up and down mountains in them...

Oh, I forgot, she lives in London...



And, luckily, there were two of them...


After such excitement, there was only one thing left to do...an ice cream...

They are absolutely beautiful. And they look like they would even have fitted me. Sigh.....

Good thing you two aren't the same size - the shoes would have been perfect for you to run around the countryside in.

Your son looks so happy and obviously has his priorities in order (the beer mats)!

they are just lovely aren't they? ... If I'd thought about it at the time, I'd have fought her for them. That's what friends are for!
They are size 39, which means that they would fit BFATW, Darling D, me and Katydidnot.
However she is safe from me since I can only wear flip flops and trainers these days...
