Renunciate

Will you help me look for flat dancing shoes?

I don't know if anyone is into "ballroom dancing" in here, but if you are - I've been looking for ages for low-heeled dancing shoes that have the regulation dance floor soles (suede leather or something like that). I am only about 2 cm smaller than my hubby and he refuses to wear heels, so I need to get some shoes that do not have heels. Like, almost none at all. Maybe 1 cm. 2 at the very most.

It would be nice if they still looked like dance shoes. So, something I can wear with a dress. Not Jazz sneakers or ballet shoes. I can get that for trainings but it won't work for the actual dancing.

My preference would be some kind of golden or silver sandals or pumps or something.

Halp?

Work update: I'm on gardening leave. (I get paid my notice period but don't work)
I'm trying to find temp work but not very successfully.

You have 3 weeks of time to do nothing. Money is tight but available. What would you do?
I'm planning to go up to the Lake District for a couple of days.

Picky canine

For the past couple weeks, my dog has been very picky about his food. He won't eat the food already in the bowl if he can see the bottom of it. Giving it a swirl to re-cover the bottom of the bowl does nothing; he will only eat if you put new food into his bowl, and only the new food. He's a Shih-Tzu/Poodle mix, 5 years old, in good health, is supposed to eat 1 cup of Beneful a day(half cup am, half cup pm), and has never had this problem before. Any suggestions as to how I can get him to eat all his food?

Sorry for the extraneous answer. My poll builder is broken ever since I "upgraded" OS.
