  1. Correct. Funny how things work out... I prefer to call her Jod Com.
  2. I used to fancy Scarlett Johansson but I now have a new one in Villanelle. Just as long as she doesn't speak to me in her scouse accent. Much prefer the Russian one.
  3. Old shoe rack I've had for years Tel, got a couple more in the cellar. And yes I'm working today.
  4. I agree with Rick regarding the shoe repairs. Timpsons turn so much of what I call the old school proper repairs away they are doing a lot of harm to the industry. ( Because if Timpsons say they cannot be repaired Then they can't....but they can, I don't think I have ever turned anything away. I'll have a go, If I fail then I'll hold my hands up.) They turned these boots away because they had a sloping heel. Some of the stuff I see coming out of there I would be ashamed of. Their key prices are ridiculous. I had a customer in yesterday who said Timpsons wanted to charge him £9 for a ER1. I charged him £5.50, he ended up having £90 worth of keys with me. I would love to pass on all the skills I have learned over the years and would like to see my shop here continue. Personally I don't think it will. I reached 65 this year. I'm not ready for the knackers yard yet, I'll go down fighting.
  5. Found these. http://www.stiletto-heel-tips.co.uk/shoe_repair.htm It says .101 but .095 equates to 2.4mm. Might be worth a try.

    Yes all well and good, but when they come in with a tricky key you can't find they are just looking at the back of your head for 10 minutes. Good idea though
