A cold and spiky world. Dog and I like not coming back covered with mud (particularly as the hole in my wellie is getting larger, not smaller.) Made the latest of a whole series of mental notes to go and get a new pair on the way back from the station.

I had to laugh - holey wellies are something I always seem to contend with - why oh why do they not make them to last these days !! I've tried expensive ...I've tried cheap - yet they still spring leaks! And once leaking I end up wearing them for weeks on end before purchasing new when I finally get tired of wet muddy socks. Have you tried sticking a plastic bag over your foot and in your welly??? I've not tried myself as its not till I put my foot in that first puddle that I think BLAST and remember the hole! Still the weather is beautiful isn't it!!! And I do love wellies - I live in them!!! Ali xxx

Wonderful, gorgeous pics. I was cursing my poor beloved (and still hole-free wellies) this evening, as I skidded around on the sea wall in them, wishing I'd worn walking boots instead, to get a better grip. And then I stepped in a puddle - and sank in right up to my knee! That'll teach me to be ungrateful to my trusty waterproof chums (they'll probably develop an immediate hole now, of course)

Alison - no, I've never tried the plastic bag trick though I can see the attraction! Like you, I keep forgetting until I plunge into a puddle when the sudden wet chill reminds me.
Juliet - gosh, a Dawn French moment (not a huge fan of Vicar of Dibley, but did like the bit where she is immersed in the puddle)!
Stop Smoking - you are very kind. Thank you.
