Having spent two hours on the last day of the hols searching every shop in wycombe, then two hours on Thursday after school searching every shop, warehouse shop and supermarket in aylesbury for ds2,my heart is with you!
His problem is triangle feet, and also bloo*y mindedness....I think the reality was, he would rather wear bright red trainers to school than school shoes. "They are so cool, can I have them."
Finally we found a pair under the £69 that he wanted me to pay (he is size 7) in good old marks and sparks, at 5.55pm for £32. They were a bit snug across I am sure, but by that stage I would have bought him ballet slippers and he seems happy with them now. I am not convinced they were not one of the first pairs he tried on on Tuesday in wycombe though.
although he says they hadn't got his size there.
The low point was me slamming a pair of perfectly fitting, perfectly reasonably priced hush puppies, that "look weird with my trousers," down on a shelf and calling out "right that's it, you can wear your plimsolls"
Ahhh I feel better for that moan, thank you epe.
