I fell out of the shop with the promise of
"I'll do what I can love, leave 'em with me"
Having left them NOTHING got done. No surprise there!
I ought to tell you that these slippers hail from Turkey, they've been with me, woman and girl for eight long years. A day has never passed when they haven't been at the end of each of my sturdy legs. Tell a lie, they have had to go for a little light bottom work. This time though it looked as if they'd finally curled up their toes and gone to the great Turkish Delight in the sky. I hawked them around Kent in the vain hope we could find a cure. Now the trouble is NO ONE takes me seriously (can't think why?) I got fobbed off wherever I went.
Bring in the big guns I thought, so Hubs went along to the places I hadn't been barred from. HE gets taken seriously (can't think why) and guess what, the snob decided he would have a try. With great sucking in of breath through teeth, he declared it would cost a lot. Now Hubs knows a good thing when he hears it, and the wherewithal to win undying adoration was just too good to pass up. The job was a goodun.
