A Christmas gift to myself

It may not be common to give yourself a gift but I started practicing that when I retired from my job. I used to receive so many gifts although I also give away so many in return. But come to think of it, when Christmas time comes, I am left with just a few gifts now. So why not buy myself a gift so I would also enjoy the Christmas season?

This year I bought a pair of leather shoes that looks elegant. I intend to use this shoes for 3 years or more because I am frugal when it comes to footwear. Some people are surprised to know that I only have a pair of shoes and that’s my style. I don’t have rubber shoes so it is either the leather shoes of the slippers for me.

  1. We have “op” shops here, selling second-hand shoes.

    An old man dies, for example, and gives his designer shoes to a “thrift” shop, as they call them in America. We can be lucky then, and pick up a great pair of leathers for a song.

    So, I have more than one pair of leathers!
