No Printing today !

We have the weirdest weather !!! A dust storm has blown in and it feels like a eerie place here today. Let's hope there;s no sign of the yellow brick road. The photo with the trees was taken just moments ago in my garden.

What the Experts say !

I found this fascinating and i hope you will too.....thanks so much to Kim who is a wonderful podiatrist if you live anywhere near Samford, QLD :-))

The foot is a complex structure of 26 bones and 35 joints, held together and supported by numerous ligaments. Children begin to walk between 10 and 18 months of age. Most toddlers are flat-footed when they first start walking because of poor muscle tone and weak ligaments in their feet. This will improve as the feet strengthen. Barefoot crawling, walking and playing is the best way to facilitate the development of strength, balance and dexterity of children’s feet. In young, healthy children with normal physical development, it is true to say that ‘barefoot is best’ but this is not always practical.

For toddler’s learning to walk the best shoe is one that mimics bare feet. A child learning to walk receives important sensory information from the soles of their feet. Shoes, particularly those with hard, heavy and inflexible soles, can make walking more difficult. A flexible, soft-soled moccasin can not only provide environmental protection for the child’s foot when learning to walk but also allows the normal amount of foot motion and function to occur. In a flexible-soled shoe or slipper the foot muscles are allowed to work and strengthen with every step, allowing the young child’s foot to become stronger and more efficient.

‘Sunshadow Slippers’ are a soft-soled, lightweight, flexible indoor slipper made from natural materials that offer good protection from the environment without restricting the development of growing feet. For strong, healthy feet ensure your toddler’s have lots of barefoot time and when requiring some protection consider soft-soled moccasins like ‘Sunshadow Slippers’ that mimic barefoot walking.

Trouble with link !!

Hello there,
Have just spent a great weekend down in Sydney, such a wonderful and vibrant place to visit. I love the city but i always appreciate the quiet, peaceful life that living in the countryside gives.
Great to go away and great to be back home !!!

I think a couple of people have had trouble with the email link for the free giveaway draw. So sorry, i'm not sure what the problem is as i just added it as a link.

I will have another go here and see if i can sort it out, if not the only thing i can suggest is that you could copy and paste it - if anyone has more technical knowledge than me and knows what the problem is i would really appreciate the feedback.

Lots of enteries for the draw now so keep your fingers crossed !!!

Here we go - tracey@sunshadowslippers.com.au
