Bloggy soggy weather
I think all this rain is upsetting things in Blogland because the weirdest thing just happened. I was leaving a comment on a fellow blogger's post ( Elizabeth's blog - About New York) and it came up with a differently formatted comment box. I duly posted my message and then, when it didn't appear (sigh), I did it again in a normal looking box this time. Lo and behold about an hour later the first comment appeared as a new post from me on my blog. So peculiar.
Another strange thing that happened a few days ago is that I began getting e-mail notifications about bloggers leaving comments on other blogs - have I been selected by Blogger for experimentation?
My third and final moan about Blogger is the fact that you can no longer click on any of your 'interests' or 'books' etc and be shown a list of fellow-bloggers with the same taste as you. It just comes up with 'Profiles Not Found'. Is this a temporary blip or is it just with my page?
Anyway, moving on, I know I love my Rocket Dog rain boots but I'd be happy for a chance to put them back in the cupboard. In fact there is currently a contender for the crown of My Favourite Shoe. I recently discovered a make I had never heard of - Arche - and they make the loveliest shoes imaginable. They are based in the Loire Valley and if only their shoes weren't expensive at a particularly impoverished time of my live, well I would buy a few pairs. I really like these blue leather summer shoes in the photo but in the current downpour I would get very soggy feet!
