Wellies and such things…

If this was a fashion magazine, I’d be calling this ‘transitional wear’… …as it is, it’s just a bloody marvellous polka dot coat…(£1.95 from a charity shop, thank you very much)… And a fabulous pair of wellies… (£10.99 H&M) Does it get any better? Puddles to splash in, whole worlds to discover…
