Pimp my wellies


Well yesterday the forecast was for snow, snow and more snow. So thinking better not go far, Stoke roads and snow do not go well together, we decided to walk to the local pub and Wacky warehouse. Unfortunately I'm too tall for the wacky part but was more than old enough for the pub end. I decided my trusty wellies needed a makeover so found my boot cuffs. Teamed with leggings and jumper dress hubby decided I looked like an extra from Elf....


Talking of Stoke roads, below is supposed to be our 'main' road. Does that look like its been gritted to you? A few minutes away the A50 was at a standstill, trying its best to look like a carpark. Hmmm.....Stoke council triumph again!


Still its already thawing and I'm snug inside until tomorrow. Trusty wellies at the ready, maybe without the cuffs. I don't want any little children seeing me, getting excited, thinking I work for a certain red suited, rotund fella! Its snow joke ya know, got to think of their elf and safety.

I love the wellie make over!

We are saying goodbye to the snow here too!
I'm glad, because it snarls life up!
But then I love it.....because it makes every where look so delightfully Narnian!

Love your wellies and boot cuffs! It seems to be thawing now and I think I just heard some rain so hopefully that will wash it away. It is a shame as it is very pretty but only if you don't have to travel in it, or get the wheelie bin to the front gate!:)

You gave me a chuckle!

I love to see all the different wellies about when the snow appears! I'm boring and just have my plain green ones ; aka, the ones I wear when with the chickens.

Hugs, Sarah x
