|Boots at last.
One of the great things about minimalism is that you get to have a few splendid things instead of a lot of rubbish things. Thus, I bought the above boots in good conscience, and when Benedict Ambrose said, "You deserve them," I believed him.
Who knows what changes these excellent Made-in-Northamptonshire boots may inspire? Freed from my velcro-strapped granny shoes, I may swath myself in black wool and red silk and sally forth in Gothic glory.
But it is much more likely that I will just wear them to Mass. I am strictly forbidden from wearing them on country walks. They are officially my Best Shoes.
Tomorrow I will make cannoli, so stay tuned.
