Juneathon Day 6: new wellies arrived

So today the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and it was warm! And my wellies arrived!! Of course they did! No rain today now my new waterproof foot wear has arrived!

But that sun wasn’t going to squash my giddiness! I was wearing those wellies no matter what! So I put on my Jodphurs that I walk in, then put only new Joules striped wellies and off I went with Rocky, Willow and Holly in toe. So to speak.

They were very comfy, and they looked good. Well I think they looked good and I took a photo to prove it.

I stomped round with the dogs for over two miles, thanking that I had them despite it being very warm, due to the very sludgy ground. And to my disbelief the mud and dirt slipped off! So not only do I have nice new wellies but they have magic dirt repellant properties! Wow!

I get home and discover I’m now boiling and for my walk with ickle Molly I decided to wear trainers. Baad decision! The sun may have been shining but the ground there too was just as soggy! When will the ground ever dry up?! But I survived another 2 miles.

So that means I have walked over 26 miles since Sunday! 26 miles! That’s a marathon! A slow one with lots of stops and some sleep thrown in but it’s still a marathon. I’m doing well ūüėČ

Juneathon Day 4: It’s raining again

Its raining again! uh oh its raining again – well the words are really oh no my loves at an end, but that’s even more depressing than its raining again! So I have always sang it as its raining again. Living in Manchester, UK for most of my life,¬†my version of this should be our anthem.

I was lucky when I did my walks this morning, I managed to get back before any showers started with slight damp boots and the dogs had to have a quick rub down. But then when me and Buster went out, well! We got soaked through! Even my very waterproof jacket was struggling to hold its own!  It was a bit more than rain drops keeping falling on my head!!

Yesterday me and Buster went on an adventure through the woods, where we got covered in mud.¬†Today we went on a different adventure and I decided to do a leaflet drop in an area close to where we live. We were kind of sheltered as we walked along paths and covered by porches and large plants in gardens and didn’t get too wet then. Sadly though on the walk back to Buster’s house, that¬†was when we got soaked!! For those¬†of you who know me personally you will understand how devastating this is¬†not just for me getting wet, but because it turns my hair into Crystal Tips!!

A very good representation of me and Buster on our walk today!

So once I got back home, with very soggy drenched feet (the muckers I bought to replace my very well loved wellies, are proving to be less waterproof than expected!), I had to make the decision that drip drip drop little April showers had extended into June – what is this about? Where is our summer? is it ever going to get any better? – and purchased a pair of wellies! I couldn’t be more excited! No really, I am. And when it said they had been dispatched I just know I am going to be sat by the window each day watching for the postman!
