Keeping it in the family

Today I commented on a blog.

Nothing strange there, it is something I do most days, on many blogs written in many places on a myriad of topics.

My comment today was:

I thought I was the only Imelda Marcos in the family.

My style was very different and well chronicled on my blog: Shoes, More Shoes & A Big Flash

In recent weeks my Little Pet Lamb, otherwise known as my niece, has joined the blogging fraternity.Goodness these youngsters take to these things like a duck to water and she is a dab hand with a camera too.


This is the young lady who would follow me round Nana’s house and sit patiently while I prepared to go out on a date. Always anxious to learn what the pots and potions on my dressing table were for.

The other day I discovered that like me she has a passion for footwear. *Whisper* I think she might have ever more pairs to her credit than I have.

Pity her shoe size is smaller than mine, or I might have borrowed a pair to wear to the blog awards.

But wait now….. I am still having trouble getting into my own shoes right now, so her killer heels are quite safe.

Why not toddle across and check out her style at Day One You can tell her I sent you.

    You would hate my shoe cabinet. All I have are 2 pairs of sandals and a pair of jogging shoes. Rubber slippers are on the porch step. I am always barefoot inside my house.

    I love shoes too, and in the old days wore heels a lot – I am short and loved the extra height. But now my feet demand comfortable footwear, translation: flats.

    Mercyn – Right now, I just about manage to fit into one pair of short boots. Still, it could be worse…. I do still have two legs.

    Your niece is certainly interested in shoes. Some lovely ones in her gallery! But I must say I’ve never seen the appeal of Doc Martens….

    Love the photo. When Charlotte first saw that one she thought it was of her! I have a massive addendum to add to my shoe blog! I forgot all about my Crocs!

    Will let you know when I have it ready. My Crocs obsession preceded my heels one. My family were quite please when I stopped wearing Crocs with everything [EXCEPT SOCKS !!]

    Ramana – Thank you. I remember those now far off days of wondering… wondering if anyone would leave a comment. Barbara will do well.
