    As with everything American us Brits usually are about 3 years behind and have to wait for stuff to finally get to our little Island, so that's why we rush to shops like Sketchers to get the latest goods.

    Well 2 Christmases ago I rushed to Sketchers but only because the weather was bizaar that year, one minute freezing cold and the next very hot, so as I hadn't packed any warm boots I got some from there. Wore them in the parks and they kept my feet lovely and warm, they were a knitted sock type with a furry edging on a thick keep fit sole. I LOVED them and did get some funny looks when I wore them but as ever I just brush off stuff like that and think no more about it............................... They got worn out as I wore them everywhere once back in the UK and they were soooooo comfy.


    Now two years on I get a catalogue delivered and lo and behold! There in it are my beloved comfy boots! Same colour everything! Only they're not boots..... they are SLIPPERS! Who knew! No wonder I was so happy... I was trotting around all the Disney parks in me bliddy slippers!

    I just love embarrassing the DD so imagine her face when I told her they were actually slippers! LOL! She's mortified.

    DH says next time we go I just need to keep me hair rollers in :) to complete the look.

    If I knew how to do a link I could show you them. There was nothing in the shop to indicate they were slippers. Still my tootsies were like warm toast! It was bitterly cold out.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
