Living Arrows 2017 // 31/52

buzzoole codeThis year I am joining in with What the Redhead Said‘s project Living Arrows which is all about celebrating childhood.

Each week I will be posting a picture of Dexter showing what we have been up to or something new he has learnt.


This week we bought Dexter his first pair of proper shoes! We went to John Lewis to get fitted and he was measured by a lovely sales woman who declared him a 5G. We bought some lovely Clarks shoes which were half price in the sale. It was so funny watching him trying to walk around the shop in his new shoes, he was acting as if he was wearing a pair of moon boots and kept falling over! So cute.

    So sweet once they get their first shoes. A 5 is a whopping size for a first pair.
