Deliveries 17th June 2014

17-07-2014First off, this is not something I have won from a competition, I have purchased these but I still view them as a win because I have been looking for them for so long.

Many years ago (well before I left school so over 25 years now) my Brother and I purchased our Mother a pair of these slippers. She loved them so much that they were never off of her feet, it was really nice to have given a gift that someone loved so much and I keep trying to do the same in each gift I give now. The problem came a year or so later, there were holes in the soles, the fur was all matted and ragged but she still wore them (have you ever had a pair of slippers like that? I know I have now so I understand her) but they were truly awful and so I’m sad to say my brother and I cut them up to make sure she could not wear them any more. We tried to find her a new pair but even then it was impossible and since I’ve started using eBay I’ve kept an eye out each Birthday and Christmas in the hope of finding another pair.

Thanks so much to 20orchid11 on there, I have finally managed it (I’ve linked to her profile there as she has some lovely other things for sale, just go have a peek when you have time) and she has been fantastic with chatting to me about them and sending them on to me. It’s really great timing for me too as this year my Mother will be 65 so this is going to be part of her birthday gifts, I just wish I could be there with her to see her face when she opens these and remembers the pair she used to have :-D
