Let's talk today about footwear, or maybe the lack of footwear.
Do you wear shoes while at home?
Do you wear shoes when going out to the shops or to a restaurant?
Me I don't wear shoes at all when I am at home, the first thing I do when I walk into the house is take my shoes off.
During summer I wear thongs...........aka........flip flops........all the time I have a house pair which are cheap $3 rubber thongs and a better looking black pair that I wear when I go out and I of course have a pair with a nice heel to wear when I go shopping.
Recently I have been noticing other people's feet when I am out and it amazes me the amount of women who go out wearing cheap rubber type thongs, I can't help but think why don't they pay a few extra dollars and get a nice looking pair to wear out.
My niece Kelli doesn't wear shoes at all and I mean at all doesn't matter were we go she always goes barefoot. Now we have never been to a restaurant with her but it wouldn't surprise me if we did she would go barefoot, I don't know if she even owns a pair of shoes, she says she does but I haven't seen them.
I can't walk out of the house without shoes one, even if I am only just stepping outside for a couple of minutes.
Now my feet sweat a lot and I mean a lot when I wear sandals I have to wear knee high stockings or pantyhose because of how much they sweat, if I was barefoot my feet would sweat so much that my feet would move and rub and I would end up with blisters due to the sweating.
Tim has a problem with what he calls a double standard, by that I mean when we go to the club they have a sign out the front saying men can't wear thongs but women can wear nice thongs with a slight heel also known as thong sandals. I agree with him there is a double standard but it is just the way it is.
Do you make your babies and toddlers wear shoes?
When my girls were babies and toddlers I didn't bother with shoes most of the time, I couldn't see the point they would often take the shoes off 5 minutes after I put them on.
I think it is strange that my daughter Natasha wears shoes and socks around the house all year round, she also makes her son Blain wear shoes and socks while in the house. When he comes here I tell him while in the house he doesn't need his shoes on. Leo doesn't wear shoes around the house unless he has been out and has shoes on, meaning when he gets home he doesn't think to take his shoes off but when he gets up of a morning he doesn't put shoes on unless he is going out and his mum tells him to wear shoes.
