This post is the sequel to the slipper story in my previous post.
So now due to my wife, Mo’s generosity, I am the proud possessor of two identical pairs of suede slippers. The light tan pair for ‘indoor best’ and the brown pair for walking the 10 yards from the back door to the greenhouse. Before I change into my gardening shoes.
This does make gardening a bit of a logistical nightmare, especially when regular cups of tea are needed from the kitchen during a normal gardening day. Four cups of tea requires 48 shoe changes. Not surprisingly I sometimes get it wrong and end up with a gardening shoe indoors, or an indoor slipper outdoors. A sudden April shower driving me quickly in from the garden and the kitchen can look like shoe shop.
Then one day I somehow lost one of my outdoor slippers. That ment I needed to use one of my ‘best ‘ indoor slippers outdoors. I knew this would lead to trouble. Before long my right indoor light tan slipper started to look the colour of my left outdoor slipper. Now the logistics had gone completely out of the window.
I couldn’t let a few slippers get in the way of my gardening, but I suppose it was inevitable that sooner or late I would loose another of my luxury mules. It just slipped away quietly and no foot noticed.
Unfortunately, what I am left with is one indoor light tan luxury left slipper and one outdoor not so luxury brown left slipper. Still walking like a donkey is easier and Mo always says I have two left feet.
ROLL ON CHRISTMAS.
