I know I said I wouldn’t be posting for a few days, but I managed to fit in a sneaky Shoe Challenge tonight, and I figured it would be a good way to round off the year.
This is actually more of a Cheaty Challenge than a sneaky one: it’s much too cold here right now for bare legs, so I’m only wearing these shoes for a couple of hours until it’s time for us to leave for the party we’re going to tonight, at which point I’ll have to change into something a little warmer. My mum bought these shoes in the 80s, though, and they’ve been in the family ever since, so although they’re looking the worse for wear these days, they do have a bit of sentimental value which made me want to save them.
I managed to fit in a few Shoe Challenges during my holiday, too, so I’m actually doing a little better than the “63” in the title of this post suggests – I’ll post some of the photos in January, and also try my best to get through the remaining pairs of shoes until my deadline on January 26th. For now, though, I’m off to celebrate New Year – hope everyone has a great time, whether you’re going out or staying in. See you next year!
