I slipped on a cobblestone and a R500 strap broke :-(
So I took the sandal to the shoe hospital and stood chatting to the omie, when I wondered out loud...since he makes belts, wouldn't he be able to make me simple handbag straps maybe? Really plain and simple?
Yes!, he said, does that all the time!
Whaaaat? Oh happy day :-)
Within minutes the buckles were selected, length determined and colour chosen.
And today, over coffee and chocolate cake and more chocolate cake and koeksisters and in great company, I replaced Plan B.1 with Plan C, which was actually the Plan A, but I couldn't find it.
While all the time it was just a bit down the street and up the block.

(Something's not all that great with my photos this week...hope it was only a dirty lens)
Aah. Happiness. The bag goes over my shoulder without slipping off, the beads are now around my neck.
Joy Joy Joy.
PS...Found the problem with the photos!
One might think it's time-saving to upload photos with the Blogger app, but alas, there goes the photo quality. So no more uploading while waiting somewhere one the kids :-)
