Back at close to around beginning of term two of the school year I in a state of misguided stupidity donated all my daughters size 9 shoes to charity. Well the ones that were not so badly scuffed and falling to bits. I had no clue what with being new to the whole school child thing that school shoes are sized differently to everyday shoes. She had out grown her size nine school shoes and was pretty much outgrown her slippers. So in my want to clean out her wardrobe as it to was full of clothes that were no longer suitable for a little girl to waer without either baring her midriff or her nickers.
It was not till later when I bought her size 10 nice shoes for going out I realised she was not really size 10 but still a size nine. Lucky for me I was able to find size 9 shoes in thrift stores. All except that nice pair of shoes that nice outfits need.
