Buying a new pair of walking boots is exciting. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a super duper fitness person but rather someone who only gets support from a good pair of boots. I can remember the thrill of going clothes shopping and all those gorgeous bright colours, and the heels that would nowContinue reading “You know you are getting old when…”
