I had to walk through a very muddy field today, so now I'm yearning for these Wellies from Toast, I'm also hankering after £125 to pay for them! But really, a good pair of wellies last years and years, and they are so essential when I have the dogs to stay because those dogs (my parents dogs) just LOVE to stomp all over your feet in the mud. Plus, these are neoprene lined so you don't get cold damp welly feet ilke in the 70's. Maybe they will be on sale after winter.
I will never forget trying to get my wellies off when I was bout 8. I'd been out playing in the snow and my feet were so numb and frozen I couldn't get my boots off so I sat with them infront of the electric bar fire (big house but not a lot of heat). I used to do this a lot to thaw my feet, but this one day I was distracted and my wellies melted onto the metal grill of the fire!
Which bring up a sadder memory of trying to thaw out my guinea pig who had been alive in the morning when I went to school but had frozen when the weather suddenly changed. I came home at lunchtime and I couldn't get the frozen hutch door open to get them all out and into the house. I can't even describe the events, it's to sad. I hate to see anything suffer. Needless to say I could not thaw it out, unlike my cold feet. I love animals but I wish they would live longer.
