What a plea­sure it was to read Kate Legge’s “Fri­days with Ol­lie” (Aug 4-5), which I’m sure was en­joyed by ev­ery new granny all over Aus­tralia. It has been a steep learn­ing curve for me, too. Day one of babysit­ting a four-month-old I strug­gled with the pram straps for 30 min­utes – then I thought I’d locked us both out of the house and was res­cued by two el­derly neigh­bours. But now I’m in the swing of it: I have the car seat and stroller sussed out and have been trusted to take my now 14-month-old grand­son to swim­ming lessons. What a joy it is for us both!

Mary Read­man Ade­laide, SA san­dals. Some fash­ions are not meant to last, such as low-slung pants dis­play­ing part of your bot­tom, de­signer jeans with holes in them and women wear­ing bras out­side their clothes. Although I ad­mit, I’m no fash­ion ex­pert.

I’ve thought of starting a new trend by wear­ing odd shoes and socks. All four could be dif­fer­ent, or the left shoe and sock could match, or they could match di­ag­o­nally. It also means that, if one of a match­ing pair wears out, you need not dis­card the other. To help the new fash­ion take hold I sug­gest catchy names such as Bisock­sual, and for shoes, with a French flair, Dé­par­iés.
