At the end of last winter I bought this pair of boots very, very, very cheaply in the sales. They were reduced by $200! I really, really love them. I have been waiting all year to wear them. The thought almost makes winter bearable.
But then I fell over and broke my ankle. It will be ok I thought, plenty of winter left after I get the plaster off. What I did not think of was the fact that my ankle would be swollen for quite a long time after the plaster comes off. The doctor mentioned a whole year before the swelling went down.
Thankfully that is not the case. I have been wriggling my ankle at every opportunity. And my boots fit, I can wear them at last.
