Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7

Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7
My Dad repaired most of our shoes believe it or not, I can hardly believe it myself now. With 7 pairs of shoes always needing repairs I think he was quite clever to learn how to “Keep us in shoe Leather” to coin a phrase!

He bought several different sizes of cast iron cobbler’s “lasts”. Last, the old English “Laest” meaning footprint. Lasts were holding devices shaped like a human foot. I have no idea where he would have bought the shoe leather. Only that it was a beautiful creamy, shiny colour and the smell was lovely.

But I do remember our shoes turned upside down on and fitted into these lasts, my Dad cutting the leather around the shape of the shoe, and then hammering nails, into the leather shape. Sometimes we’d feel one or 2 of those nails poking through the insides of our shoes, but our dad always fixed it.

Hiking and Swimming Galas
Dad was a very outdoorsy type, unlike my mother, who was probably too busy indoors. She also enjoyed the peace and quiet when he took us off for the day!

Anyway, he often took us hiking in the mountains where we’d have a picnic of sandwiches and flasks of tea. And more often than not we went by steam train.

We loved poking our heads out of the window until our eyes hurt like mad from a blast of soot blowing back from the engine. But sore, bloodshot eyes never dampened our enthusiasm.

Dad was an avid swimmer and water polo player, and he used to take us to swimming galas, as they were called back then. He often took part in these galas. And again we always travelled by steam train.

Rowing Over To Ireland’s Eye
That’s what we did back then, we had to go by rowboat, the only way to get to Ireland’s eye, which is 15 minutes from mainland Howth. From there we could see Malahide, Lambay Island and Howth Head of course. These days you can take a Round Trip Cruise on a small cruise ship!

But we thoroughly enjoyed rowing and once there we couldn’t wait to climb the rocks, and have a swim. We picnicked and watched the friendly seals doing their thing and showing off.

Not to mention all kinds of birdlife including the Puffin.The Martello Tower was also interesting but a bit dangerous to attempt entering. I’m getting lost in the past as I write, and have to drag myself back to the present.

Fun Outings with The camera Club
Dad was also a very keen amateur photographer, and was a member of a camera Club. There were many Sunday photography outings and along with us came other kids of the members of the club.

And we always had great fun while the adults busied themselves taking photos of everything and anything, it seemed to us. Dad was so serious about his photography that he set up a dark room where he developed and printed his photographs.

All black and white at the time. He and his camera club entered many of their favourites in exhibitions throughout Europe. I’m quite proud to say that many cups and medals were won by Dad. They have been shared amongst all his grandchildren which I find quite special.

He liked taking portraits of us kids too, mostly when we were in a state of untidiness, usually during play. Dad always preferred the natural look of messy hair and clothes in the photos of his children.

End Confusion on Calcium and Iron Nutrition Products

Vitamins A, C, E and magnesium, calcium and iron nutrition products abound in the market. Since childhood, we have heard constant reminders about the importance of good nutrition. But few of us really know what nutrition actually means let alone good nutrition. The scientific definition of nutrition is the process of obtaining nutrients in food that is necessary for the proper functioning of the different organs of the body and for the proper growth and development of the person as a whole.The term is derived from the Latin word nutritio which means sustenance. Nutrition is indeed an important process for human beings. Without proper nutrition, the organs in our bodies won’t function efficiently and correctly. We will stop growing, become weak and eventually die in the absence of proper nutrition. This is why many people find it necessary to take vitamin or calcium and iron nutrition products.Proper nutrition means more than just having a body that is physically fit. Having proper nutrition also encompasses the fields of the mind because as the saying goes, a sound mind and a healthy body. Simply put, nutrition affects every aspect of our humanity. If we have a body that is sickly, then we would soon have a mind that is always distressed and perhaps worried.With today’s stressful and polluted world, it is now more important than ever to ensure proper nutrition. This we can do by, first and foremost, ensuring that we have a balanced diet. A balanced diet simply means to include a broad selection of food and nutrients in our daily meals. We would also benefit from avoiding junk food as well as smoking and alcoholic beverages.One way to ensure proper nutrition is by taking food supplements such as vitamins or calcium and iron nutrition products.
