I hate it when they do that with shoes, CC. I've worn Nike Pegasus since forever (with the odd foray into something else every now and again that never usually works out) but with each model they "refine" the design - not always to the benefit of the wearer in my opinion. The ones I'm currently wearing are two models old (got them for £28 on Runners Need so can't complain) and they are much roomier in the toe area than the newer models. I buy size 4.5 usually but the last couple of pairs of newer models have been a lot more snug than with previous versions so I may have to chance a 5 next time and risk running like Coco the clown!
Kit has a friend here today - second playdate of the week; this is time I want back at the end of my life! I've taken most of the week off work as Kit's been doing a summer swim school each morning and the timing is such that it's not worth my while to go into work afterwards (shame!)
Hubby and I are like ships that pass in the night at the moment. If he's not rowing, I'm running and vice versa. Plus regattas most Saturdays or Sundays and they are pretty much full-day events. It'll be weird going on holiday and actually spending time together!
Boo to lack of babysitter CC. Saying that, we don't have one either unless I ask my mum, who is always happy to oblige but prefers to go home rather than stay the night, so means one of us can't have a drink or we have to pay for a cab for her which adds a bit on to the cost of the evening. May explain why we haven't actually been out together (just the two of us) at all this year!
