Shoes Glorious Shoes!

I may have mislead you last week...  I've been away on holiday for the last eight nights.  I didn't think I should tell the world that my house was going to be empty for a week so I prepared my posts in advance and left the blogger scheduler to publish them for me.  So apologies to anyone who tried to contact me last week.

We went camping in France and stayed in the Haute-Vosges and Picardy.  It rained almost the whole time we were away but it didn't matter when the views were this beautiful.
The first photograph was taken on our campsite in the Haute-Vosges early in the morning (because when you go camping with a toddler you get up when the sun rises!).   The second photograph was taken at Chateau du Pierrefonds, and if it looks familiar it's because that's where they film 'Merlin'.  They were filming while we were there but we didn't get to see anything more interesting than some bits of scenery and people moving equipment about.
Sadly, I'm back in the real world now (no more beautiful lakes and castles...) and it's back to blogging.  As I've been living in waterproofs and walking boots for the last week I'm going to be unashamedly girly with today's blog and it's all about shoes.  But I like to make things difficult for myself so I'm not including any actual shoes.
