After the success of my ponytail challenge that I set myself, (which you can read about here and here), and some discussion with my friends I’ve decided that I should embark on another one…to be able to do my own shoelaces.
This is something that I don’t think I’ve ever managed to do for myself, because it would require work from my left hand as well as my right, and this is the kind of task that I find really hard to do with my left one.
Over the years I’ve found it kind of frustrating that I haven’t mastered this for myself to be honest. If I’ve bought footwear that has laces instead of Velcro or zips, then I have to ask someone to tie them for me so that they are loose enough for me to be able to slip my feet in and out of them, but not so loose that they fall off my feet when I’m walking.
I’ve tried and tried to do this and I’ve not had success yet. When a friend saw my post about doing a ponytail, she sugguested I try doing the same thing with my shoelaces and I think this is a really good idea so I’m going to give it a go.
I’m not sure if or when I’ll manage this, but I’m willing to try. Let’s see what happens. As always, I’ll keep you all updated.
