New boots

Inspired by one of our lovely Tokyo hosts, I recently picked up a pair of cheery gumboots in anticipation of wetter weather. Luckily for me, the sunflowers in my backyard match my boots perfectly, and provided a good photo op.

These are the first gumboots I’ve owned as an adult. They’re not quite as shooshy as the gumboots I used to have that had smiley faces on the soles (quite frankly someone needs to do something about making adult-sized gumboots with smiley faces on the soles), but despite that drawback, I still like them a lot.

Unluckily for me, the gumboots turned up a week after the big storms. No matter though, I will impatiently wait for puddles I can slosh around in and mud to trample through.

    I have never seen a pair of gumboots like that – they are very stylish!

    Lovely boots! I have wanted an excuse to own gumboots for years, even before they became so cute with all the colours and designs. I had a lovely time splashing around in borrowed boots on a visit to Cornwall. But they would be almost completely useless in Canberra.

    Nice boots! Would be perfect for Bendigo Wool Show!
