Wouldnt it be good?

Wouldn’t it be good to be in your shoes
Even if it was for just one day

Well, that is a massive hint to tonights video at least, though the blog, in truth, only relates to the first few words of that. But looking at that quote, I’d truly love to spend just one day in the shoes, and body, of Clara Elaine Johnson, and find out what life was like as a dancer in the 1930’s, all the same.

But no, this blog isnt about that, though I might come back to that at some point in the future, who knows? No, tonight’s subject is corsets!

One issue I personally have with corset ownership, is that its not an item I can get myself into, without assistance. Even before the back issue (more shortly), the arthritis in my fingers would make tying a corset behind my back, nigh on impossible, or in truth, just impossible. And being a single woman (no one is crazy enough to want me lol), I have no one else to tie me into one, either. Great shame, because I’d love to be tied into this, for certain.

Yes, supposedly a corset, though hard to tell from that angle. But yes, metallic silver, and all that…

Wouldnt it be good (see I knew I could fit the song title in here) if you could put on a corset, push a button on it, or turn a device so that it could tighten around you, without all that tying issue, which I cant do? I’m only amazed with all this modern technology that no one has ever designed one, ah well… Or maybe they have, but at such a silly price? Though in truth, I suspect for many (with partners, or supple hands), the tying up is part of the, err, fun.

What I found today, while looking for a back brace, to support me through the wedding, as standing still unsupported is going to be an issue for a while, was this

Now in truth, I have no idea how much actual waist reduction this will do, as I cant see zips being able to pull in that tightly, simply because zips tend to just ease open, if you pull them too tightly? But yes, fine, my main aim with this is the back support, and I just see the corset side of it as an added bonus. Lets face it, my face would put potential admirers off, even if I had the perfect hourglass figure! But yes, at that price, I’ve bought one, to see how it goes. I have also bought a more straightforward back brace, which has magnets in it, which are supposedly good for you, but we will see. Thats just one of those velcro fitting things, but that should be fine, fingers crossed.

Yes, we will see…

Right, video time. Yes, you must have worked out the song by now, but this version gives you not just one 80’s legend, but two!

Things may be getting better?

Well, at least this week I’ve had one good piece of financial news, even if the money hasnt actually appeared in my bank yet. Yes, the matter of the rent benefit has been sorted out, a mix of good news, and bad.

The good news, I’m actually going to get more per week than I was expecting to get. The bad news, its not being back dated as I hoped, beyond the date I made the claim. At least I have the consolation, that as I’ve been paying my rent where possible, though the claim went in 7 weeks ago, I’m only 3 weeks behind in payment, so I’ll get some money to sort myself out, at least.

Yes, after this length of time, being waxed is not going to be fun! On the other hand, I will be so glad to get it done at last, you wont believe. Not yet sure if I will worry about getting nails done, I’ll think about that one for now. But brows especially, so need to lose some hair!

Thats not to say (ha ha), that if anyone has a few spare pennies laying around, I couldnt use them, but at least when this money arrives next week (so I’m told), immediate issues will be eased. Could be eased even more if the job interview is successful on Monday, but on current form…Yes, no breath held!

Fine, I might solve the issue tomorrow, given the National Lottery is creating 10 millionaires, instead of the normal 1, so I might go mad, and give it a go. Its been that sort of week, who knows? Mind, one of the 20 prizes of £20,000 would solve all issues for a couple of years or so! Unlikely, but the way the week is going (I won £5 on a free horse race competition yesterday), it might just happen!

All the same, just at the moment, things seem to be improving slightly, this video seems apt
