Rain Boots

It's a dreary, drizzly day here in my part of the world today. I don't mind a bit of rain every now and then but rain on a school day means that I can't ride my bike to school. That means that I have to leave earlier in the morning to walk there. Because I'm not riding my bike though, it means that I can wear a skirt.

Today's rain is the slanting kind. It doesn't matter how you hold your umbrella, you're going to get wet. Boots were in order, but the only boots I have are my heeled knee-highs, fabulous, but not great walking to school shoes. Once I get to school, they have to come off anyway, and go into my shoe locker, as I change into my "indoor shoes". My indoor shoes (in case you were wondering) are black Mary Jane crocs.

As I was skipping over puddles on the gravel path and clopping down the bitumen road on the way to school, I was dreaming of rain boots. A while ago, Jenny showed us her fabulous red wellies. I've been jealous ever since.

Here are some funky boots to brighten any rainy day.

Whether I'll be Loving Friday or not still remains to be seen.... recently my final class of the day has become my least favourite of the week. I'm not sure why, but suddenly the dynamics changed and now I can't get anything out of the students. Until a few weeks ago, this was one of my best, and most enthusiatic classes! Regardless, this is my little bit of BLOGTOBERFESTING for the day.

I know all about the slanting kind of rain. We get it here all the time, sometimes it is a bother to eveb have an umbrella. Hope you are doing well. Cheers Kyla

We don't get much rain here in So Cal, slanting or otherwise but I love rain boots. When my sister and I went to New York last year it was in the middle of April and rainy so we decided to buy some. She ended up with some really cute blue and white polka dot ones but since the whole island of Manhattan seems to have unusually small feet, my size 11's (US) came home bootless. :(

Just catching up on all the posts I have missed. My wellies are not as new and shiny anymore but I still love them They are by the door unused at the moment as we head towards the hot and dry days. I love the welly photos you found-wouldn't it be great to have a wellie collection! Enjoy the rain:)We've forgotten what it is like already!
