Today I have found out that I have some very big shoes to fill.
I have always loved shoes, one of my favourite childhood memories is my sister and I trying on my Mum’s shoes – we couldn’t walk in them but we felt so grown up wearing them. My sister’s first word was shoes.
As an adult my love for shoes hasn’t gone away. I love them now for a totally different reason though, it’s because you can always walk in a shoe shop and something will generally fit you.
I don’t need to feel embarrassed, I don’t feel people are looking at me because shoes in my size always fit. That is why I love shoes.
I have always thought that your shoe size doesn’t change when you get to be an adult. Once an 8 always an 8.
Today I needed some new shoes so I chose a pair of enclosed slip on shoes. I asked for them in a size 8 but they were really big! So then I tried on a 7, they were also big, so I ended up leaving with a 6…
2 shoe sizes ! I can’t believe I have gone down 2 sizes, I already have new clothes to buy, I wasn’t banking on the fact that I would need new shoes too.
I think I can get over this very quickly; not sure Matt will when he sees the bank balance though.
