A shoe solution

Amaia has grown out of her black indoor shoes for nursery, so I have replaced them with the next size up. Nursery has two rooms, each with fifty morning kids and fifty afternoon kids, every day. That's a hell of a lot of identical black shoes, so they name the shoes in each child's group colour. Amaia, as you can see, is in the yellow group.

Occasionally, when Amaia grows out of something before it looks worn, I pass it on to one of her two younger cousins: Catriona who is two, or Elisabeth who is one. Today she tossed me her old black shoes, that look as good as new, and announced: Just give these to Amanda the next time you see her and then as an afterthought, Oh, and remember to tell her she'll just need to change Catriona's name!
