All you fellow Londoners out there dealing with the tube strike, I commiserate. I also wish to impart some (yes, rather obvious) wisdom to all those who are making their way to and from work today and tomorrow and that is: wear some comfy and rainproof walking shoes! Don't do as I did this morning and wear your silly old ballet flats, as when you have to walk across London in the rain, you'll find this isn't the best idea going...

I'm wishing I had of thought of this earlier and arranged to have had these cute Cath Kidston plimsoles on my feet instead. They look like they could withstand a bit of walking and even though they're no waterproof wellies, they'd probably do better to keep the rain out than my pumps. Very cute, too! They're £16 from Cath Kidston.
