'It's going to stop raining,' I said. 'And, anyway, with a plastic bag over my foot I'll be fine. And, yes, my coat is waterproof.'
It didn't, I wasn't, and it isn't: even my bra was wet.
I thought only one welly had a hole but it turned out to be both of them. Not that the plastic bag made any difference.
By the time I got back on the cycle path on the way home I was thinking seriously about walking in bare feet. My feet wouldn't have been any wetter and probably more comfortable.
So that's both of my walking boots and both wellies that have holes. Today I'm going to buy myself some new wellies. I really don't want trench-foot.
