I have had to admit something to myself this week and it hurt. Fashion wellies do not mix with farms.
We have lived at the farm for just over a year now and in that time I have been through four pairs of the fashionable type. Oh they were lovely. Pink glitter, polka dot, even a pair with a wedge. Yes they looked great but once mud had splattered on them and reality set in, the fashion wellie was banished to the shoe cupboard or even the bin after they fell apart.
It could take me up to half an hour to get the blighters off. A toddler doesn't lend well to pulling them off and the only other option was using the door step. Thankfully my farmer came to the rescue in the shape of a pair of proper farmer wellies. They may not be pink or glittery but they are practical and I can get them off with ease-bonus.
