Much to the complete disbelief of many colleagues at work, their contributions to my birthday fund were wisely spent on a pair of wellies. But why wellies? one asked. Because I've been digging a vegetable plot, I replied. Why are you digging a vegetable plot? he asked. Because I quite like gardening, I replied. You have a garden? he asked. Yes I have a garden, I replied. You live in Crystal Palace and have a garden? he asked. Yes, there are such things in Crystal Palace, I replied.
Needless to say, he was and very much still is, a moron. But I don't care, because I'm now the proud owner of these beauties
And I'd wear them to work if they weren't covered in mud, simply because I love them so!
