I know that Dorothy’s shoes in the Wizard of Oz where red and sparkly, but these new shiny red ones brought the classic 1939 film to mind.
I took my 3 kids, BY MYSELF, to a shoe shop in Coleraine this morning. “So what?” I hear you ask……This is something I avoid if at all possible. There is something about all those shiny new shoes and my kids that brings out the worst in them, or maybe it is the worst in me!
Anyway, today we conquered the shoe shop, and came out with our purchase, once we assured my son these were the bounciest super-fastest shoes in the shop. He actually preferred another pair which were in all other ways identical, except they were a size too small! He had his heart set on them until we convinced him of the superior super-jumping powers of the larger pair.
We also made it through Game, Bargin Books, Claires, Moores for lunch and an old fashioned sweet shop without major incident and returned home to admire and consume our purchases.
Instead of buying all 3 kids easter eggs from us this year, we proposed purchasing them a joint present instead – Mario Kart for the Wii. To our amazement they agreed, and to our double amazement it was in stock – happy days! Now if only I had remembered to bring the Wii to the cottage we could be trying it out right now.
That is me for today, I am limiting myself to just one photograph for Project 365.
