New slippers just don’t feel right yet


A man who’s going through the bedding-in stage of his new slippers has vowed to plough through to the New Year.

Peter Thape (37) received new slippers for Christmas and is currently trying to cope with feeling like he’s wearing someone else’s shoes.

Thape has sadly said goodbye to his old pair, which had 50,000 miles on them and knew every bump and grout line of the downstairs all on their own.

‘I just feel taller; it’s weird,’ said Thape.

‘I keep looking at the bin. I could still get the old boys back on again,’ added Thape.
