Bare feet are for cavemen

Crochet slippers

I’ve noticed a change in the weather this week. The nights have become cooler and suddenly, I’m sleeping really well. Maybe it’s just a coincidence. I can wear jeans again and I love jeans. I could live permanently in jeans. The best thing though, is that I can wear my socks and slippers once more.

I am anal about clean feet. I dislike walking on bare floorboards with bare feet and feeling bits of stuff on my soles and when you live with a dog and two small children, there is always stuff on the floor. No matter how often you vacuum and mop.

Sandals are very pretty and good for keeping your feet cool, but they get bits in them so easily. Recently I was walking Daniel to school and somehow managed to get a layer of drought-powdered dirt between my foot and sandal-sole. It was hell. I love socks and shoes and boots. I suppose I could do it the German way and wear socks with sandals but it has been too hot for that.

I love wearing my slippers around the house. It’s miles nicer than walking barefoot. Especially when you’ve got a cool pair of home-made slippers to wear:

  1. Agree with you about dirty feet. I used to end up with filthy feet from gardening until I bought some Blundstones. They are brilliant. Your slippers are lovely. I can’t wear slippers because my feet overheat — even in below zero temperatures. Please don’t go German with the socks and sandals look. That would be taking it too far. 🙂

    • You really can’t wear slippers? Not at all? Do you walk around the house barefoot even in winter? My feet would turn into ice blocks very quickly. You must have good circulation.

  2. It’s either bare feet or flat casual shoes. Sometimes, I might put on some warm socks but that’s unusual. Peter bought me some slippers because he thought I needed them but I rarely wear them. 🙂

  3. Perhaps I do have good circulation but, then, my blood doesn’t have to travel as far as yours. My legs are nowhere near as long!
