“What is your shoe size?” It was a first and welcome inquiry from a new team mate. Was I in the company of other footwear enthusiasts? Were we to spend all day discussing the virtues of Manolo and Louboutin and parading about in kitten heels? In fact, Terrapin Grove wishes to buy me some steel toed boots. This week I will be visiting a freight yard where they take safety very seriously. I showed off my new boots to a friend this evening ” Clever of them to find a style of shoe you don’t already own” he opined.
