One of the good things about working at a preschool is that there are round yellow column blocks that you can shove in your shoes at naptime to try and push out the parts of your new shoes that are irritating your bunions.
That’s right – I said bunions. Stupid knobbly feet that prevent me from wearing cute shoes. Stupid nerves getting pinched.
As long as I’m whining about shoes, lets complain about socks as well. I bought a pair of ‘no show’ socks, and honestly – they show all over the place. I’m not overly fond of wearing shoes without socks, so tomorrow I’m trying a new invention: Homemade insoles/liners that sit (and stay) inside the shoe like a no-show sock, made from a piece of 47-cent felt. They’re crazy long so they go around the back of my heels and over the toes a little. Hopefully walking around won’t make them bunch up into a ball in the middle.
If this works out, I’ll go global with it and share my millions with you – my three loyal readers.
