I need new wellies

Thanks to the holes in my wellies and the puddle outside the back door, my feet were wet before we left the garden on our walk today. Then, over the tip, the path was totally waterlogged. I resigned myself to waddling along in water-filled wellies. By the time we got home my coat, trousers, socks and t-shirt all needed wringing out. The only things that weren't wet were ny bra and pants.

I was hoping to get through till autumn without buying new wellies. It's nearly June, for heaven's sake.

Younger Son was asking me about the people who go to Zac's on a Tuesday evening. I told him and he said, 'They're the sort of people, if you see them on the street, you try to avoid looking in the eye. Don't you get scared?'
'Good grief, no. I feel perfectly safe.'
I told him I was probably one of the most normal people there. He looked me up and down and said, 'That's bad news.'

You know what it's like when you're talking to someone and you think, 'This person seems fairly stable,' and then, as you continue the conversation, little signs start flashing in your brain and you think, 'hang on a mo ...' When my gran was in hospital many years ago there was a lady in there with whom I would exchange smiles and hellos. It wasn't until I saw her pouring an imaginary cup of tea and talking to an imaginary friend that I realised there was anything unusual about her.

And that bleeping alarm is still going. I need a sharp shooter.

Younger Son seems to have a good grasp of what is going on around him ... not that you have been nipping at the tea with your imaginary friends!

Aw, go on out and buy yourself a really cute pair of wellies - you know those springtime ones with the bright colourful patterns on them. If they last into the fall, they will brighten your mood at the prospect of winter approaching. :D

PS: got your email, but now I my Outlook isn't working. Will try to respond with my hotmail account.

Umm... beeping things. I once ignored our fire alarm that was beeping at me in a horrible way. Just, you see, because I didn't have any of the right sort of batteries or any two minutes strung together to get up there and take the old battery out - I was going to replace it. Honest.

My housemate cracked before I did.

When will they be back from ho9liday? Can the local police do something about the alarm? I presume it is not one of those sort that connect to an alarm company? I have earplugs you can borrow, though.

Your younger son sounds like my older son! What a hoot!
