Hi everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the summer?
It’s been a pretty busy one at Chez Huntley with continuing building work on the project without end! For my latest trick I have been trying my hand at bricklaying. I really quite like it! Here’s a pic of me helping out with some brickwork before becoming quite filthy.
It’s a pretty messy job but very enjoyable. With many of the major jobs I have undertaken whilst working on my home there wasn’t much to show for it, such as knocking down walls, installing insulation and lagging pipes. Laying bricks gives instant gratification.
Spreading the mortar was the really fun part..a bit like icing a cake, really. Less yummy though, I would suspect. Next on the list will be installing splashbacks in the kitchen so I will let you know how I get with that!
Those of you with an eye for detail may have noticed I’m wearing Skechers whilst working on the bricks. As they are so comfy, I have worn them for jobs around the house which don’t require my steel toe cap boots. The only downside is that I’ve managed to get expanding foam over them and they’re now solely for use whilst I’m working on the house!
The good news is I have a great new pair that I’ve been trialling ahead of the next Today’s Special Value launch which is midnight on Wednesday the 31st August and featuring all day on the 1st of September.
Needless to say, it’ll be great value but let’s talk about what’s on offer. The Go Walk style is Skechers number 1 best-selling shoe worldwide. The Today’s Special Value offer is brand new to the market for autumn/winter 2016. It’s called GoFLex Walk and features the new articulated outsole unit, adding premium and interesting elements that we, the QVC customers, won’t have seen before to the much-loved GOwalk styling. It’s ultra-light weight, easy to wear slip on, stylish and with flexible upper.
A wide range of key colours are available to choose from with more muted tones for easy outfit building and a pop of bright turquoise or pink – perfect for summer. The black and neutral tones are perfect for casual outfits, walking or shopping whilst the bright pops add fun and a splash of colour to a pair of black jeans and tee combo.
Have I mentioned comfort? These come with the goga mat insole for comfort throughout the day and are lightweight and flexible as well as easy to take off and on. I now have several pairs and my mum is also a huge fan, especially of the goga mat insole. Supremely comfy!
I’ve been raving, almost non-stop, about my Freddie Fitbit which encourages me to be more healthy and take more steps. One of my favourite forms of exercise is walking and these have been a joy to help me get my steps up. I highly recommend them!
Thanks for taking the time to read. I’d love to know if you’re a big Skechers fan, too, and what you love about them.
