WEDDING SHOES

"Will you...?" "I will..."

Church weddings are in this season.

Also fashionable are very high heeled shoes for female wedding guests.

I can only admire the determination of some as they encounter the reality of a rural churchyard path, often cobbled, sometimes steep.


"I will make it to the church without tripping/falling over/getting stuck between the cobbles. I will not take off these expensive shoes. I bought them especially for today.

I WILL. I WILL. I WILL."


Oh well, as my French exchange student told me long ago,
"Il faut suffrir pour etre belle."
Not that I ever observed her suffering as she presented herself with apparently effortless chic.

But that was in Paris.

Rural England has different challenges.
