In the last 20 years, the amount of people that have come to this country by boat would only just fill the MCG. It's all the Baby Boomers that are being greedy as F**K with their self-managed super funds and playing poker with OUR property!

 

Or these alleged 'foreign' investors. Although I have my theory that all this talk about foreign investors buying up all the property are actually immigrants who grew up here but with a strong culture of buying land. I.e. Chinese.

MS, not quite.

Thankfully, I've never had ankle blisters, but shoes that are too small can cause blisters, simple because they are too tight and thus rub against parts of your foot that they would not normally rub against.

Coxsackie and md2010 - I suspect that you've considered this already, but please bear in mind that the shoes might not be too small (or too large) per se, but that the shape of the last might just not suit your feet.

Also (particularly Coxsackie, as I remember that you bought a couple of pairs of shoes recently), at the risk of sounding patronising, do bear in mind that some shoes do take a bit of wearing in, and so some applications of leather conditioner (if they are calf, not suede) and some periods of wearing them around indoors for an hour or so a day (rather than wearing them for a full day) might help to break them in so that they are more comfortable.

Of course, neither of the above points may be applicable and perhaps the shoes are just the wrong sizes for your feet.

I noticed that, while in Indonesia for meetings with their president, Tony Abbott was wearing chelsea boots (presumably RMWs).

That looks like a material fail.

Is it a dinner suit?
If so a patch might work.
After all you will never have those trousers on without a jacket covering the arse patch.
Will you.

Thanks for the feedback guys - okay definitely not wear and tear.

I was intoxicated and dancing gangham style, so definitely deserved it.

I might try one last crack at the tailor see if i can have it patched up, ill just make sure i wear as a dinner suit when its dark.

He's not our worst dress pollie. He also sports an electric blue grenadine from drakes.

And online purchase .....hoping they will fit .(sometimes they don't)
I have realized now if shoe don't fit or feel right at the first time you slip on them. They will never be comfortable.

You probably realize this but you'd get better utility buying 2-3 shoes you really like from double monk and getting the size right rather than buy cheaper pairs online.

Have you tried AE's ? You could buy these shoes and find out if AE in an 8EEE is the right fit. Then having spent $100 on shitty second hand shoes you could go nuts online with new ones knowing they will fit.

Haha, I actually think the Balmain/Rozelle area has the highest concentration of Aussie members. There are 5 members from this thread in those 2 suburbs.

I'm going to be in Melbourne next week, I might be pretty busy so not sure I can meet up, but does anybody have any recommendations for new resteraunts, or places I might not have been? or anything going on on labor day?


thanks

I had the pleasure of meeting Zach (globetrotter) when he was in Brisbane on business a couple of years back and I can heartily recommend catching up with him if something can be arranged.

He's great company - very entertaining with a great selection of stories and experiences from around the world.

You should one day come to Zetland to see the buses that drop off people at showrooms.

Need to pace myself as we have a long holiday....

Keep the updates coming iSurg!

Where did you stay in Rome?

I have and for me AE 8EEE in any last is my safest option.

Looks the same and educated guess.
