I love my husband.  Because, deep down, doesn't every girl want a divine pair of boots for her 40th birthday?

With this present you can go down the Diamond Runs more easily rather than dripping in diamonds:D

Happy birthday Jeanne. If I hadn’t looked at the comments here I would have had no idea what these boots are for. I’ve never been skiing in my life. At first I thought they were roller skates or whatever those crazy kids call them nowadays but then when I saw they had no wheels I was doubly confused…

Congratulations on reaching the big 4 0! It’s my dream to own my own ski boots, having had so much trouble with rentals in the past. One day…

What a lucky gal you are. Do take care when skiing, don’t go and copy Natasha Richardson. :-s Hearing about freak accidents just make me more paranoid about icy sports…
