The Gallery – Shoes

September 7, 2011

Be warned, all you mothers of nice, neat toddlers with one pair of shoes each, or even primary school mums, whose offspring just have a couple of pairs. Here is a picture of the cupboard downstairs where my DVDs were supposed to go:

I’m not even going to show you a picture of the bench in the hall which is supposed to have NOTHING underneath it, or the actual shoe rack …. it’s too distressing. Too shocking for Tara’s lovely Gallery. Sometimes I feel that my whole day is taken up in pairing shoes, sorting shoes and stashing shoes. Basically, teenage girls seem to have about a hundred pairs of shoes for each foot. And then some.

Where do these girls get it from? I’ve absolutely no idea. My footwear is always strictly practical. *Ahem*.

    Oh no! I’ve just refurbed a blanket box to sit in our hall for the shoe stash. I fear it may not be big enough 🙁

      Hmm, it might be enough for your littlest …. for about a week. I’m seriously thinking about giving over several rooms just to shoes!

    I agree. I find myself frustated by shoes so much. They should magnetise into pairs by magic I reckon

      Oooh, what a good idea, I’d pay good money for magnetic shoes. And even more for shoes that were self-tidying 🙂

    Hi. Keep tying to look at your”Thanks but no thanks/ Madame Bovary post”, but keep getting blank page with “error message 404- page not found.”

      Hi Addy, hope you had a good summer! Very sorry to hear that you couldn’t see that page, I’m not sure what’s going on but the blog has been a bit temperamental as I’ve just changed over to a mac from a pc and to be honest I’m a bit in the dark …. will try to sort it out! x
