What I realised in Sydney

posted in: Grow Mama, Uncategorised
After the first day of walking to the office and to meetings
in the city my feet really hurt. Three days  of epic city walking I have massive blisters
on the soles of my feet. I realised something. I spend most of my time
barefoot. I work from home most of the time and go into the city for meetings
and events and the occasional blast in an inner city office, but most of the
time I am either barefoot or in gumboots. 
I walk a lot. My son and I walk the
dog on our beach most days…but the ground is somewhat forgiving. Sand and soil
kind of shock absorb and give way a bit under your weight. Concrete and
cobblestones not so much.

So yeah. It’s a combination of distance covered, hard
surfaces and well, actually wearing shoes for 12-hour chunks nonstop. Sigh.
Country cousin come to the city. And ow. And UGLY! I don’t get the ‘unsightly
bulge’ thing…except this one…one foot looks alien. Before you ask, no. No close
up photos. I wouldn’t do that to you!
