We're having a real run of luck with the weather at the moment so not wanting to miss out, we headed here for an afternoon trying to kill two birds with one stone. The first bird being the walk, and the second being a look in Keswick for a new pair of boots for me. By the end of the day both birds were 'deceased' even though the second one was much more hassle than the first.
After getting a less than great service in one shop, we ended up in Rathbones where I was pleased to walk out carrying a new pair of size 8 (and a half) boots. It doesn't matter which shop, but the guy in the other one insisted that this particular boot doesn't come in half sizes; even though I told him they must do because I'd been buying at least one pair every twelve months for years. I don't even look at any other boots, I just pick the ones I always buy and try a pair of those on.
