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 😀
The Happy Feet Gift box I won from Treat Republic on Twitter from when they were celebrating their launch. I have to say they have some really great products that would make anyone happy to receive them as a gift (I know I would be) so go check them out here! This has also knocked another item from my 13 Wishes for 2013 Challenge to myself!

These are the Ugg Goodies that I won from Schuh on Monday, now isn’t that fantastic delivery of a prize? and I am just so impressed and over the moon with this one! Boots for both Dave and me, 2 pairs of slippers for me and a care set for the sheepskin 😀
