What utterly rubbish weather we're having. It's making me feel thoroughly down in the dumps. All that gorgeous low sun shining through the autumn trees is gone, and now it's just all day mizzle blowing sideways through bare branches and the remaining soggy rotten leaves lying by the roadside. Boo.
Aigle Lolly Pop Rubber Boots £29.00
Still, I hate being cooped up in the house all day. So does Jack. Plus, it was time to move Jackie into the next size up welly boots, so when they arrived, he was itching to get out and splash through some muddy puddles. I'm an Aigle fan, as you may know. Over the years Jack has pretty much had every single colour of Aigle welly boots, with an occasional pair of Hunters thrown in for good measure. We have never owned an orange pair of boots though. So when I spotted these, I knew these were the ones. They've photographed more red (they're a deep burnt orange) - look at them there - all shiny and new. They weren't so shiny after this muddy walk, let me tell you.
Noah is his Daddies boy at the minute. I'll try not to take it personally. But he'll choose his Da over his Mammy anytime. I remember little phases like this with Jack too. I used to fall in and out of favour a lot. I suppose I still do. So I worry less than I used to. It gives me a wee break if anything!
Cousin Thomas came out to wade through puddles with us this day. Matching hats and all! Boys just love a puddle, don't they?
That's all from us this week. I have no week that was seeing as I haven't been too inspired to photograph in this rain. Stay dry, all! x
