and they worked!
Call me crazy but when I need a bit of luck or I want something to go well I get my Happy Shoes out.
If I was a pair of shoes I would definitely be my Happy Shoes.
Bright, colorful, loving flowers and great in the garden!
They make me optimistic and help me face difficult situations.
Today I had an appointment with my consultant at the hospital 3 years and 6 months after I was diagnosed with cancer.
I am perfectly healthy and have been since my treatment ended but every 6 months I have to see my consultant just to make sure.
I worry about these visits. They haunt my unconscious for about a week before I go. I get a bit snappy and tired; I find it hard to concentrate. Even gardening fails to calm my nerves!
So this morning I turned to my Happy Shoes.
As I put them on I smiled and felt the confidence flood into me.
They worked for a number of reasons;
- The traffic was fine along the ring road
- My appointment was on time to the second
- Mr McMillan’s hands were warm
- and most importantly, I got the all clear again
The sun even came out for a few minutes when I got home and I was able to grab and sow some of the Stipa gigantea seeds that are scattered across my decking.
Do you have a pair of Happy Shoes?

P.S. I’m going to wear them again tomorrow at Gardeners World Live – may be they will help to stop the rain that’s forecast!
