Although the weather has been throwing all kinds of challenges at us, I hope you’ve enjoyed a little break at some point. The Supershoes office has been closed for two weeks, to give us a well-earned rest, and now we’re back, it’s full-on with shoes once again.
Many of our Super Artists have been painting shoes over the break, and they tell me it feels like a holiday, now and again, to shut themselves away for some peace and quiet, with their paints, a pair of trainers and simply create. And the shoes they’ve sent back have been absolutely awesome, as always. Check out the latest photos on our Gallery.
I’ve had a short break away from the office, and have enjoyed recharging my batteries, although I’m very much aware that for families of children with cancer, taking a break is simply not an option.
And the subject of hope brings me on to something else that’s very much on my mind at the moment: the Supershoes Laced With Hope garden for RHS Chelsea, which will start construction in just a few short weeks. We’ve been posting news and photos in our newsletter, to give you a little taster of what’s to come.

April is also the beginning of another season: the new financial year. Don’t worry; I’m not going to wax lyrical about the joys of spreadsheets and tax returns, heaven forbid! But the thought of a new start does make you take stock of what you already have. And what you already have can bring surprises, once you start looking around you. Try your own “mini-audit”! There’s a lot to be grateful for out there.
With peace, love and gratitude
