Thanks Heavens for Captain Jack!

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.

Captain Jack, mmmm. (I know I shouldn't.)

I'll have to point this fact out to Thomas, when he's next getting shoes too. He dresses as the Doctor every day...and intends to be a Time Lord when he grows up.

i loved leos new boots! don't know if andrew would wear them, he's more of a trainers or crocs person but i'm gonna get him to try them on to see.
he's also after a pair of black converse - the white ones dont stay white for long do they!

It's even harder when you have a girl who wants to be Dr Who and not Rose or Martha, nothing I buy seems to please her!

sandals and no socks ... tiger is determined. winter 2007 may come and go but it is just the passing of the seasons around those pink birkenstocks.

Captain Jack is such a snappy dresser! Much better at it than any of the Dr Whos IMO.
