Stylishly jumping in muddy puddles

Wellington boots, wellies, rubber boots, they all originated from the  British soldier and statesman who was one of the leading military and political figures of the 19th century, Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. At that time  Wellington boots were  used by the aristocracy for hunting and outdoor activities.
Fast forward a few centuries and they are used for jumping in muddy puddles and collecting marbles. If weather forecasts are to be trusted, these all-weather boots may soon be needed to cope with some UK snow. Here are some options if you do not want to caught-short and faced with the only remaining boots in your kids size- the £40 Hunter wellies!!

Give a boy a Bobble

IMG_0343

I am a total sucker for a bobble hat. As the cold creeps in I watch in delight as they start to bob around the neighbourhood.
Maybe its because I was brought up watching the Flumps on TV and always had a slight style crush on Pootle.

Unknown-2
Anyway the bigger the bobble the better, I say. And who can argue with that.
