Fiskateer Scissors

Hooray, my fiskateer scissors arrived yesterday. So straight away I started using them instead of my 18 year old pair of fiskars scissors to do a trimming double sided tape job. Oooo theyre sharp and new and make that lovely swoosh sound when you cut.

After a while they got gunked up with sticky goo...

So I cleaned it with a baby wipe as I usually do...

And these are brand new and VERY sharp...

Yep I sliced my thumb nearly in half, ouch, very very sore. The thing is I've done this before, not for a few years but you think I'd learn eh!

In the afternoon I toddled off to the Bridal shop to try on shoes, oh wow, I really have to reccommend Rainbow Club Bliss shoes. Theyre just so comfy, even with heels and even when I mostly wear crocs. So now Im ready for my first fitting!

oh yay! I've done the new scissors/knife thing ooooh at least once before!

I'm going to check out these shoes - it takes me so long to make shoes comfy that they look like manky old tatty things by the time I can wear them without blisters popping up!
