Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Shoes, Boots, Slippers

If the Shoe fits

I’m no Carrie Bradshaw where shoes are concerned. I hate shoe shopping and my primary need in a pair of shoes is that they be so comfortable that I won’t need to buy another pair for a very long time. It’s also nice if they match my clothes but as I mostly wear old clothes around the house and black clothes for going out that’s not so hard to achieve.

Of course, I had to include some doll shoes but the rest of them are mine. There are my winter boots, the sneakers I bought at the Op Shop, the boxes of shoes I rarely wear and my cosy slippers.

My rubber boots, Wellingtons as we Brits call them, were bought at an Op Shop in Huonville back in 2002 when we first moved to Tasmania. They cost me 50c. I still wear them but it is hard to take them off alone so they may be going to the Op Shop at some point and I’ll get ankle boots.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. Those slippers look very comfy. I wonder if putting a plastic bag in your Wellingtons as a liner would make them easier to slip off? They would make wonderful flower pots on the porch if you decide not wear them anymore – you could spray paint them or stencil them.
