Walk a mile in my shoes: 18

I bought these from next at the same time as the yellow shoes of Walk a mile in my shoes 8. I thought these were the sensible pair of the two but although the yellow ones are higher; these black ones are more painful to wear. The angle of wedge of black shoes puts lots of pressure on balls of feet whereas yellow ones jeep feet more level.

I still have the box, so know they were £35. I now keep the shoes I will feature in edition 19 in the box.

My Cookery books: The really useful student cookbook

My brother gave me this book for the Christmas before I went to university. From it I have cooked risotto, fried toasties (basically you butter outside of sandwich, cheese in middle and fry in frying pan) and sweetcorn fritters. Also when first cooking for self it was a reference before smart phones to get tips.
