Shoe's


Well mine are more boots than shoes, the front shows my families walking boots. we like to get out into the country whenever we can and these boots have taken us to some glorious places that we wouldn't have seen without them. They have been knee deep in a peet bog way up in the Peek District and they have climbed to the summit of Snowdon. They help keep me fit and allow me to treat myself to that little bit of chocolate and a lovley glass of wine on a saturday night. Nothing beats coming home from a cold winters walk to the smell of a casserole slowy cooking in the oven. It's not a hobby I ever thought I would have chosen when I was a chubby teen who hated exersise or after I had had the children and was really aneamic but having found it I would find it really hard to give up plus it gives me great photo's for scrapping.
