Gained in a thrifty manner, but of course! Several members of my family (all a good 3-4 inches taller than me) have the same shoe size. These were inherited, nearly new, from my sis who works in meedja and is much trendier than me.
I have a confession to make, too. You know my purple jacket? It's not the oldest (as in, owned by me longest) item I own. The T-shirt in the photos is. This T-shirt started life in the lost-kit bag of my school ( as in, the school I went to- way back in the distant past). Even then, it was so old skool that it wasn't even the colour of the kit anymore (which had changed in the late 70s when it became a mixed comp) and thus was never, ever used. About 1994, mid Britpop mania, I spotted it being thrown out with some sweaty vests and odd socks, and asked for it as it seemed very a la mode. Totes free and turned out to be Adidas too! Hurrah.

The jersey is really good quality, but the badge was only printed on so is now rather faded. I think it's late 70s (due to the colour and provenance of being in the old kit bag). I did wash it a good few times before its first wear back in 94, and have washed it regularly since; no fading, hurrah!

Now I'm going to watch my dancing flower bop to some Blur, Pulp and Garbage, watch The Big Breakfast and buy some Thai food because it's the new exotic thing. Chin Chin old chaps (raises bottle of Two Dogs).
