How not to break in new shoes

The lovely and extreemly helpful Helen asked me to help out with the bake sale in the school this morning.

First off can I just say that despite working in a bakery for a few months last year I have never seen so many cakes in one place before!! Every child must have brought in something. We could have created a small hill with the rice crispie buns alone.

It was all in aid of sending one of the EAL teachers to visit Unganda with a childrens charity - so a very good cause.

I dont know the final tally on the take in but its at least 700 euro - which is amazing for one mornings work.

We all of us helpers had a great time - I love the chance to get in to the school and talk to the kids like this.

Great example of the conversations ..:

I was chatting to a little guy I know from Junior Infants class .. lets call him Joe ..

Joe - My mammy made those rice crispie buns.
Me - I cant make them .. the mud never sticks to the rice crispies
Joe - NOOOOOO you have to use chocolate
Me - But then how do you get the worms in?

He had me sussed like a light ... still he gave me a lovely big cuddle before he left.

Getting back to the shoes



In my madness I had thought that I would road test the new kitten heal shoes I got for the forthcoming wedding I have to go to next week.

Bad Idea.

Sore Feet now.
