|Are you short of a shoe?|
I'm getting a bit worried to be honest, having surveyed the garden after the storm last week, what do I find but cinderella has had a shoe blow off and its landed right in my garden. Its in the middle of the bed by the house with the fushia and the ajuga in it - looking a bit worse for wear at the moment. I'm curious as to how on earth the shoe got there. I think it was blown in, which is pretty nifty really - landed about 5ft short of the building, so clearly a good aim whoever threw it/lost it. But how on earth did it get right here?
Well, the one thing we know for sure is that the wind brought it - was the owner of the shoe out surfing in a force 8-10 gale? Did they lose their foot whilst hot air ballooing over the house in a nasty storm. Or did someone try to put it on over the atlantic and it blew in from there? We aren't near any road or anything like that, this is not a passing shoe-in-the-garden-attack. I think it came from the beach at the bottom of the field by the house, or over from Hoy the other island, maybe someone was trying on a shoe and it blew out of their hand all the way here?!

Come one Cinders, don't be shy - whilst I'm glad it landed in my garden rather than straight at the window - I'm not going to hang on to it! I might even send a prize packet of seeds out to the most original story of how 'your' shoe got into MY garden. As if it isn't busy enough at the moment with all the hens in there!
