madi can you fetch daddy's slippers





Like with the Cutey bracelets recently, this is the other post that SHAME ON ME for not doing sooner: a lovely young woman named Ella asked if I wanted to review a pair of a new line of slippers - 'home boots' - called KUSKUS. I chose these green pair. She sent them to me - a gift, and I've been happily wearing them ever since, but did I respond in kind by telling you guys about it? NO. Why? Because I am a lazy old cow.

But I love them. They are loverly. They're not all fuzzy inside - some styles are, these aren't - but that's okay, because sometimes I wear soft socks inside. It's better, actually, because this way, they won't get all.. foot stinky. They're comfortable, they're fun, and more importantly, they remind me of Peter Pan. When I wear them, I kind of skip around the house, singing. They're my Happy Slippers.

Can't embed it, but I love this one: 'Madi, can you get daddy's slippers?'

And further to the My Fair Lady theme (leap of synapse, I know): while trying to find a clip of Rex Harrison telling Eliza to fetch his slippers, I found this: someone took the time to dub Audrey Hepburn being dubbed by Marni Hendricks, with the Julie Andrews version. Like life imitation art, this is life dubbing life dubbing life. Or something like that.





KUSKUS: slipper boots, made for home, but with leather soles so you can run outside, if you'd like. Approx. £30. Rather fetching, don't you agree?

I just love slippers. Of any kind!!! I used to hate wearing them - then my sister bought me these boots that are furry on the inside and the outside and are massive and so warm! These look lovely too - the colour and pattern are so cheery :) xx

Hah, how often have I sung "Wouldn't it be Loverly" around the house (me dubbing Audrey Hepburn?!), or seen this film, or heard the Julie Andrew's version (though I think her voice doesn't suit Audrey Hepburn's looks at all, I prefer the film dubbing if I am looking at Audrey). Anyway, the "lots of chocolate for me to eat" happens to be reality and not just a loverly dream in our home, since I am addicted. ;-)

Very cute Peter Pan slippers! Perfect for Never never land. And thanks for your e-mail. The website is hitRECord.org though I haven't figured out how people upload or edit stuff yet. xxxx
