Today I woke up and thought I would brighten a very dull January day and wear my new woolly tights with my shiny red shoes. Woolly tights don’t sound very exciting but they certainly caused a stir. From “lively”, “funky”, “fancy” and “different” (!) to comments like “do you play golf?” , they got a reaction. Some people smiled and some laughed openly but I comforted myself by feeling proud that I have spread some cheer.
