  1. Being innocent in these things I googled "crate challenge". I really didn't know that the BBC had news pages in Pidgin: https://www.bbc.com/pidgin/tori-58318072 Strictly speaking they should say which pidgin as there are many: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_English-based_pidgins
  2. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen wearing block heels in one of the photos here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-58267000 Presumably also when he's on TV. Perfectly decent presentation of heels on a man. Shame about the sheer naffness of the show. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Llewelyn-Bowen He's known for wearing flamboyant clothes. He's not gay.
  3. Seems like they didn't have the local Brighton accent which is fairly rough and coarse.
  4. Not that posh! Just ordinary upper middle class or very low ranking aristo at a guess.
  5. Every time I hear myself saying "for free" I wince slightly. I know I should say simply "free" or "for nothing". If I was from the north of England (I'm a Londoner) I might say "for nowt" and mean it. As a southerner I would only say that for comic effect. "Would of" may be a lost cause. It's based on the way we nearly always say "would have" or "would've" but grates my gears when I see it written. The young woman who complimented me on my shoes the other night (that's in another thread) had a lovely speaking voice. RP, a little posher than mine. From what I know of her, she's from a fairly posh and wealthy background, and speaks as one might expect.
  6. I remember her in "Until Death us do Part". Showing my age:)
  7. Is that the title of your next book?
  8. When I've been in the US I've grown rather tired of the "I love your accent" remarks. Occasionally people said I was Australian. That was almost incitement to murder! With all respect to antipodean members of HHP who, quite reasonably, have accents that reflect their country of origin.
  9. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-58194764 BBC news presenter has problems with her heels. Alas we don't actually get to see the heels This may not be available outside the UK.
  10. I don't wear HH all the time but I quite often wear these ankle boots out and about: https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-heeled-chelsea-boots-with-pointed-toe-in-leopard-print/prd/21030697?ctaref=we+recommend+carousel_4&featureref1=we+recommend+pers Yesterday evening in a small art gallery in London's West End the gallerist said she liked my shoes. I don't think it was obvious they were boots as they were partly hidden by my trousers but the heels were clearly visible. I thanked her of course. I should add that she was a good looking woman, at least 30 years younger than me. Nicely dressed, though not in heels herself. Earlier that evening my partner and I had been at Bernie Dieter's Berlin Underground: https://londonist.com/london/on-stage/bernie-dieters-berlin-underground-review The first show we've been to since lockdown which had a full audience. I wasn't surprised to see the performers (men and women) in high heels of various kinds for parts of their performances. From red stiletto pumps to sparkly ankle boots to OTK boots,
  11. In the UK the RAC (who ought to know about these things) say that it's urban myth that it's illegal to drive barefoot or in flipflops: https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/road-safety/driving-without-shoes-is-it-illegal/ As far as I can tell, driving shirtless isn't an offence either. The Highway Code says: "You should ensure that clothing and footwear do not prevent you using the controls in the correct manner" https://www.highwaycodeuk.co.uk/rules-for-drivers-and-motorcyclists-before-setting-off.html Technically the Highway Code is guidance, not law. But if you do something that's against the HWC and have an accident you are likely to have to justify why you went against the recommendations.
  12. I haven't looked up the relevant documents but in the UK I'm pretty sure there is a requirement to be properly in control of your vehicle. So if you had a serious accident, wearing high heels mignt be part of the evidence.
  13. Looks like you order by UK size from Amazon. So did you order UK9 and were they marked US(womens)12? At least in theory, UK9 = US (womens) 11 though size conversion is notoriously erratic.
  14. Did they have to come from the US? The Amazon listing says they will be supplied from the USA, with potential for VAT etc charges. In any case, nice and comfortable looking boots.
  15. I think you mean 7US(women)/5UK/38EU.
