Welcome back autumn! I lament the end of summer, but autumn is Justin’s favourite season of the year. He likes the nights drawing in, the trees turning russet, the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot – and his beloved log burner being lit again!
The weather often turns wet and windy at this time of year, so when summer rolls on to autumn and winter, an essential piece of kit is a pair of Wellington boots. We have a super pair of kids’ boots to give away courtesy of The Warm Welly Co. Just the things for being outdoors splashing around in big, muddy puddles!
As the name suggests, they’re not just waterproof rubber wellies, they’re lined with neoprene to keep your kids’ feet & toes nice and toasty warm.
They’re available in sizes from toddler to teenager – and they’re soon to start producing them in adult sizes too!
To win a pair for your child, visit the The Warm Welly Co. website then return here to let us know what colour, style & size you’d like and who they’d be for!

We’ve had so much rain recently!! It hasn’t stopped pouring down for weeks and there’s no sign of it relenting any time soon. Good wellies are essential for nipping out to the shops or walking the dog. My current pair were a false economy – they were only £10 but they’re very uncomfortable to walk in and make my socks slip right down into the toes… not good!
I bought Justin a pair of Hunter wellies for Christmas a few years ago and they’ve been in all too regular service since. I’ve been searching the web for a pair of my own. Here’s a selection to suit all tastes. The purple colour block pair above (# 2) are definately my own personal favourite – I just love that shade. They’re currently on sale too!

As our regular readers know, we do an awful lot of hill walking – mainly thanks to our Weimaraner, Fudge.
We’ve walked our way through several pairs of boots over the past few years, and our current ones are at the point where they get soaked through at the merest hint of rain. Walking in squelchy, soggy, muddy socks is horrible!!
We’d both love a pair of these Brasher Supalite II GTX walking boots! They’re plain, sturdy and the brand is famous for the durability of their footwear.
Black Galway boot, Dubarry: £299
I don’t mean to be greedy, I already have a pair of these in walnut, but brown doesn’t go with everything. Sometimes one needs a versatile, practical, hardwearing, waterproof yet attractive pair of boots… in more than one colourway… and these certainly fit that bill!
