Fancy Gumboots – Perfect For Dancing!

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”
~ Jalaluddin Rumi

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
~ William W. Purkey


Easter weekend is here again, and of course two things are a given:

  1. It’s Bluesfest here at Byron Bay
  2. It’s raining

And my old gumboots died somewhere around Christmas. But that’s okay. Yesterday Ben bought me some new ones.

I now have the world’s comfiest, warmest gumboots (or galoshes or wellingtons depending on where you are!).

They are soft but sturdy, and lined with fur. Completely waterproof, washable and light. And they even have little handles to pull them on and off.


These gumboots are perfect for tramping around the paddocks here at the farm, or for doing a little gumboot boogie if the mood takes me.

I’ll be wearing them tonight as I dance my heart out. Because unless I’m dead, I’ll still be dancing!

How about you? What do you have planned for the Easter weekend?

Hugs and love, Nicole <3 xoxo

PS – Life is usually not perfect. Stuff rarely goes to plan. Celebrate anyway. Live anyway. Because you never know when the music might stop. Make the most of your weekend, lovelies, and do something that makes your heart glad, even if it’s a bit of a stretch for you. That’s my secret to happiness! (And yes, for some of you that might mean resting rather than crazy running around.) Love you xx

  1. Those boots will keep you warm in the wet. I have a pair and they kept my feet warm and dry in Arctic (and Antarctic) waters. Enjoy.And No rain forecast. Dance up a storm (not literally) Have fun. You both deserve it.

  2. This Easter weekend we are celebrating our 17th annual pilgrimage to a local sugar shack (maple syrup) here in western my state. Then it’s home for an all out bbq feast with all the trimmings! I’m so glad to be alive today.

  3. Warm is the key word !! nothing worse that cold feet. Hope they are sturdy enough to withstand needle sharp teeth from future pups! however with those handles, they can easily be hung up on a hook or a piece of rope/string on the verandah. xxx

  4. Haha. I bought a pair of these – fancy red ones with snow flakes on them a couple of weeks ago on holidays. It was a Cinderella pair, last pair in the shop, my size. What else could I do? Then I get to Melbourne in time for their wet, cold weather last weekend, and yes perfect! Nice and light not like normal wellies.
    Hope you’re both feeling better and able to eat.
