The roads got re-surfaced here in Malvern. There is horrible tarmac every where.
I just saw a girl who had crossed the road shaking bits of grit out of her flip flops.
It is horrible to think about what fresh tarmac could potentially do to a carpet. You really should think about it when you enter your home.
And as for those of you who are to polite to ask guests to remove their shoes- just suppose they have walked on a road that has been re-surfaced?
