This morning we went into town with a list of things to do. It was election day so we had to cast our vote and we were also going to the produce store to get some feed for the chickens and the co-op to buy rice and olive oil.
I was about to get out of the car and the strap on my sandal broke.
So, there we were in town with numerous things to do and no shoes. I did not want to drive 16km round trip to home to collect another pair of shoes. I decided to pop into the local op shops (we have 2 in town ) and see whether there was anything suitable to buy. In the second shop I found these, barely worn, my size and much more suited to my needs than the pair which had broken.
Have you bought something when you have been caught short for one reason or another?
