Manolos to Crocs by way of Lidl’s

As beautiful as a shoe can be but as much use as a wet box of matches in this rustic corner of France. This is the sad conclusion that my wife, Jenny,  has reached after 9 years of keeping the flame of hope alive. The realisation that our social calendar no longer includes Manoloworth events has been a harsh awakening. So harsh, that in a dizzy free spending moment, she could no longer resist the infinitely more suitable Lidl’s imitation Croc. We become more Vendeen by the moment, and, as yet, cannot decide whether this is a good or bad thing.

  1. You know you’ve truly become a “campesino” here in Spain when you start buying non food items from Lidl. Last winter I bought an electric blanket from there. Best thing I ever bought, except for my completely out of place Prada bag from a previous life that actually cost more than our first car here!!
