Print 52, week 26 – new wellies
I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about new wellies before (maybe no one has?!), so much so I created this week’s Print 52 as an homage to my new purchase. Those of you who know me may understand. Ive spend the last 5 winters wearing canvas shoes, or wearing wellies with holes in. Each year I say “this year I’ll have proper shoes for winter” and it never happens. Last year I tried really hard and bought these super expensive Timberland boots. I was under pressure in the shop; I was there with a boy and needed some decent boots to go and see fireworks that evening, so bought boots that were too small. Clever huh? Ah the pressure. I can wear them if I put a whole pack of blister plasters on each foot, and grin and bear it.
So maybe this year I’ve nailed it. Spurred on by booking a last minute trip to Venice (prone to flooding this time of year), I found these fleece-lined padded wellies. Think I’ve died and gone to heaven!
