She’s wearing the ruby slippers…

Dorothy.  Wear red shoes and the nickname is inevitable.  But that aside, isn’t there a magical feeling of wonder that comes when slipping on a pair of your very own pair of ruby slippers?

Having woken up to grey clouds (suitably poetic as they are), with the prospect of marking the exam scripts of, oh I don’t know, ninety whiny pubescent teens, and perhaps the most frightening of all – facing the horror of the local tax offices – the promise of butterflies and rainbows was but a mere whisper. 

It is said (by the wise and sage beings we refer to as ‘they’) that we make our own destiny.  Turns out ‘they’ are indeed wise and sage.  By simply opening my wardrobe, catching the plush look of my suede cherry-red pumps, I set out to have a foot-tappingly joyful day. 

The next time you’re battling to see the silver-lining, close your eyes and tap your heels three times and think to yourself ‘theres no place like home’.

Thanks to omnipresent Google, here is some joy-inducing red footwear to inspire you on your cloudy and grey day!
