- Well done! You almost got it.
I was looking for "My shoes are hurting my ankles"
mi - my
bachles - shoes (although I suppose it has a lot in common with buckle
gie - give
kweets - ankles
jip or jyp - (nagging) pain
I must admit that one of the problems I have is with the phonetics on
how to write this done and hence gip or gyp. It could also be written
jep as in j in Jenny and ep as in yep
