With all the rain we had I wondered if they’d sold many pairs so spoke to one of the salesgirls…. Oops..salespeople 😊
‘Oh yes’ she said. ‘We’ve sold loads of the rain boots’
Pardon, I said don’t you mean gum boots?
Oh no, they are now known as rain boots or water boots. People think gum boots are old fashioned. My little sister calls them Puddle Boots!
Oh dear, how on earth is an oldie like me going to remember that. Where I grew up they were called Wellington boots…..usually just Wellies. It took me years after we came here to refer to them like the locals did as gum boots!
My blue Wellies…or are they Rain boots…or Water boots….or Puddle boots??
What do you call yours?
