I’ve got new work boots. My riggers were leaking, not ideal, and they were making my feet hurt. I love my new work boots. They are comfortable and have fine stripey laces. But they are so clean! This is not a good thing. Just like clean trainers. They look like they have never been used, which they haven’t, that they are just for show. This morning it has been raining and I am off to Lord and Lady Mantle’s with a car fullish of bargain bin plants I rescued at the weekend. Hopefully by the end of the day, my shiny new boots will be looking a little more lived in. And I wont have wet feet.
