I went out on a brief walk today, wearing a pair of slightly old flip flops. When I came back. the soles were completely embedded with stones and bits of grit. Just imagine if i had walked into somebody's house wearing those shoes!

A couple of weeks ago, when it was wet, a lady in the office ofice where was wearing slippers as her shoes had got wet.

Talking to her, she expalained that she carried slippers with her as the nursery where her son goes has a no shoes policy, as they don't want the floors which the children play in contact with "pavement contaminated" items.
Rather than wearing the slipper socks they provide she prefers changing into her own slippers.

In the office she has done the same thing on a few other occasions.

What do you think about removing shoes in homes?

Only in UK is this considered unusual.

In Sweeden everyone removes there shoes indoors, not just at home, but when visiting friends or offices. We change into our indoor shoes or slippers or stockinged /socked feet ( many office have underfloor heating).

Thanks for visiting, Katrina. It's not quite unusual in the UK, but not everybody removes their shoes.
