The Doctor wears Converse baseball boots, no matter what. L is now the owner of a new black pair (as worn in The Lazarus Experiment and The Age of Steel, apparently!) but they are not great for a child who must be equipped to walk in the rain. Luckily, Captain Jack wears smart, brown, leather boots. L now owns a pair of, very fine, brown DM boots. Just the thing for this morning.
Shoe expedition not so good for P - as predicted. We got walking shoes from Blacks but they are troubling her - something about the tongue. She's trying a whole day in them to see it if gets easier. The good thing is that she is now a size four, so all her rejects can find a home with me. She needs to live in a climate where trek sandals and no socks are suitable footwear year round.
