Why I Love My New Flip Flops!

Flip Flops 2

My new flip flops have sparkly straps and the moment I saw them in the shop, I knew I had to have them.

Why? Because they took me right back to my childhood and the following story:

When I was a kid I saw some children’s plastic mules for sale in a shop.

They were slip on play shoes, with a high heel, and made of a hard reddish plastic, embedded with spangles.

They glittered and called to me every time I saw them. I would stand in front of the shelf, take them down and caress them lovingly.

Oh how I coveted those sparkly mules.

But Mum said No!

    Memories of a childhood in Singapore is flip flops.
    That and the burns on my feet when I mislaid them when swimming and a mile long walk on superheated paving back home
    Taught me a lesson did that.
    Always have TWO PAIRS! One on, and one in your rucksack.
