Falling down

Enlarged ImageI wish someone would blow something up. Anything, just so long as it causes a break in this endless, tedious, news coverage about the fucking weather. It's a bit of snow and ice folks, that's all. Put on some woolies and a scarf and shut the fuck up.

I hear that casualty departments and ambulance services are being swamped by cases of people slipping over. Jeez, can't people even manage to put on some decent footware for the duration?

Regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of my cheap, industrial, non-slip, bullet-proof, bomb-proof, waterproof, acid-resistant "Slipbuster" chef's shoes. I don't know how they do it but wearing them I can walk across an oil-covered skaking rink without slipping.

They are now £15.99! Up from £12.99 the last time I bought some. I'll wait for a special offer in the summer and buy another few pairs.
