Sometimes you are simply in the right place at the right time and the fates have something good waiting for you 😃
My Van wellies have sprung a leak, well three leaks to be exact and all at low puddle height. Not good when you walk dogs up to three times a day most days and the weather gods have decreed the wettest weather this side of Noah's ark building days.
So I needed new wellies and knowing how downright brilliant my bog standard green garden centre wellies are back in Wales, I thought I would pick up another pair on my way past there as I left for the Van yesterday. They didn't have my size!
But turning to leave the store I spotted three pairs of these wellies lined up in front of the daffodil bulb display. One pair was in my size, well the size I can get away with as long as I have innersoles and thick socks on … which I will have for Winter obviously!!
Gulp … do I splash out and get posh wellies was my first thought.
Then I noticed these labels.
Reduced from £44.95 (who pays that for wellies?) to a slightly less teeth clenching £22.49 … maybe passable, after all they are for dog walking not festivals!!
Then I spotted this … yay my sort of price.
I quickly handed over my tenner and set off on my travels.
Behind me I had left this.
Photographed and here for posterity.
Proof indeed that we are making our house weather proof and saleable.
Oh, and the nice (but dim) scaffolding guys came back last night after their days work and relocated the leg of the scaffolding that was in front of the boiler, so Alan now has heat and hot water.
So do I but I'm in my happy place. Van Life ... you can't beat it 😄
