As they were put on the shoelace snapped, never a good time to happen as I played it cool taking the lace out and re threading it only to find that the lace wasn't long enough to go through all the holes. So what do you do? Tie it up without going through the whole series of holes and that's what I did. It was a bit tricky as the lace was still very short for the rabbit to go through the hole when doing the knot, but I go there in the end.
As I got to the car, the knot had come loose so it was another bend over to tie it up again, snap! The shoelace broke again as I tighten it up. No far too short to have any affect it was back inside to put my sandals on and bear the cold of the morning.
By the way, we don't have spare shoelaces in the house; it's only me who wear shoe-laced shoes as Bulgarians in the main think this an unpractical type of shoe. They're right!
