Rubber boots

I swung by my parent's place in the afternoon to visit mum and check on my vegetables in the green house. Both my nieces were home after school. Here's the littlest one who had just stepped off the bus, munching on a cookie from the bus driver under the watchful eyes of her sister.

"You better listen to me huh!"

Guess what mum got me? A pair of brown wellington boots! She always insists that I put on a pair of rubber boots to prevent slipping or accidents in the farm. Well, actually dad bought it for our farm workers but mum wants me to have it. So, I wore it to make her happy and to keep myself out of trouble. But these are not the most comfy thing to wear.

It's fruiting season at the farm. Check out our mulberries and dragon fruits here.

The boots remind me of Paddington Bear's one!

*Muaks* to your 2 nieces!

Blur Ting said...

Kaye - Yes, I like that they are small and not chunky like PCK's.

Wouldn't it be nice to have Claire and my nieces playing together?
