Purple Crocs

FOR ME!!!

Can you tell that I am pleased?

I got my first pair of Crocs recently – by default, they were for Mr L but were too small for him. I think they are great; enormously comfortable and exactly right for my daily lifestyle, they act like slippers in the house but are perfectly happy when worn to take the dogs out on wet grass or a wet and sandy beach. Sure, they look terrible and I feel like Minnie Mouse in them and I’m not all that happy about actually being seen in them

I was such a convert to the comfort of them that I thought I might seek out a pair designed for a lady’s more delicate foot. Alice came to my rescue. I really wanted some red ones, but they were £15. Purple ones… PURPLE ones, were just a tenner, with free delivery (get ’em while they are hot, at Amazon) They arrived this morning.

One foot fits, the other is slightly snug – but a size larger would be too large on the smaller foot, I think. At the price, I think I’ll keep them and try them out. I can always get some larger ones later if it proves to be necessary. Maybe red ones next time, though. Every girl needs at least one pair of red shoes in her life, there are always days and occasions where red shoes are a useful bolster to the spirits.

I love purple. Always did. Always will.

Just need a red hat now. Make sure that it doesn’t “go”.

It’s a reasonable day today and thus we have the back doors standing open. This means that Chloé can come and go as she pleases (she refuses to use the cat flaps and expects us to give her ingress and egress via the sitting room window). We were taking a coffee break in between sorting out the van, when we heard a strange Chloé-type noise. I did not like it. I wondered if she hadContinue readingThanks!

It has been a busy day, not much time for anything. We walked the dog this morning but I took no photographs until I decided to take a few potshots in the village on our way back.

There and back again

We took Dusty for a walk after lunch, packing him in his backpack carrier until we were off the campsite. He had his jacket on and we attached him to a leash initially. We let him lead us and he took off from the reservoir road and into some waste land. It looked like a… Continue reading There and back again

It’s always the same

Up and at ’em this morning. We planned to walk out to town via the blue route and return by the yellow. Blue route turned out to be a terrifying descent into the bottom of the valley, with no doubt a terrifying climb up into town thereafter. It was absolutely fabulous out there in the… Continue reading It’s always the same
