Sadly, it looks like I'll be saying goodbye to my lovely shoes.
They've carried me many times up to the castle and down to the beach and to other happy places.
I generally like shoes with a bit of wear and tear. Gives them a little character. But I've taken these as far as they'll go. They are falling apart, falling off my feet.
It's time for them to go.
But it will be like saying goodbye to an old friend.
