Just over a week ago I had to finally admit defeat and stop wearing my wellies. They had got me through a very wet winter and spring, Id worn them nearly every day, even on days when I didn’t need to wear them seen as they were so comfy. And if truth be known, I quite like the farm look so I’d wear my jodhpurs and wellies and off I’d go to Tesco! Any excuse, not just because I was walking the dog!
Any way, Id been wearing them for a while with holes in the back (in the crease) and then a slit appeared in the side, but I wasn’t giving up! A friend even suggested I put plastic bags on my feet before I put them in my boots so I could keep wearing them. I thought about it and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it, but only really because the weather was heating up and my feet would be baking.
So I’ve purchased a pair of new boots that are half wellie/half furry boot. They arrived last week. I tried them on whilst wearing my shorts and I think I looked pretty cool, stomping round my kitchen. Poppy was clearly impressed.
Unfortunately, due to the temperature, I wont be wearing them just yet as they are lined all the way to my toes and are snug as a bug in a rug. So I’m going to have to still purchase a new pair of wellies for the days when it certainly isn’t short weather (which I’m sure we’ll have plenty of those days during our usual Manchester summer). In the mean time, trainers it is but I struggle to keep them clean and they already stink! Plus they just don’t go with my farm look at all.
The retired wellies are still currently sat by my back door, completely unwearable as they gave me blisters the last time I wore them. But as I am clearly my mothers daughter I cant bear to part with them! So I think I’m going to cut them down and make flower planters out of them, any suggestions on what flowers to put in them??
