I have bought a new mat for just inside our front door.
The old one was black and dull but perfectly serviceable. The new one is a really beautiful colour, a Mediterranean summer sea colour, a gorgeous cobalt blue that lifts my spirits.
But here comes my confession.
I don't want it to get dirty!
So ever since it has been in place, whenever we come indoors, instead of wiping our feet as we used to with the old mat.
I make us jump over it so we don't get it dirty! :-)
