How to look vaguely ok in the rain when pushing a pram...?
Yes good idea to get something longish for the really rainy and windy days. I've got a PVC leather look double breasted coat which I bought years ago from a market and its perfect for that type of day, other days I wear a trench, a parka or a coat. I've got that second hat MmeTussauds. It always seem to rain at pick up time around here.. so I always carry a hat in my bag, I find brolly too impractical most days. What I really want is this this
I do have a brolly that clips onto my buggy, but it's a bit crap - the handle keeps on unattaching, and if the wind catches it, you, ah, have to walk a bit faster or watch your baby being propelled away from you!
Surrender, surrender! Just buy a really good waterproof jacket - you'll be needing it for walks in the park, school runs, standing on the side of football pitches..... In fact, just buy some waterproof trousers whilst your at it. And some hiking trainers. And when you wear your coat with the hood up, put your glasses on so that they steam up, and then catch sight of yourself in a shop window and ask yourself 'When did my mother arrive?'
I'm just bitter,it's taken me this long to realise that I have completely lost my sense of style and that practicality and comfort are my main priorities........
Coming soon, looks like some Mums have actually designed one for us http://www.theraindance.org/ I meant to post the link when they were being voted for and they lost by just 10 votes, was kicking myself, sorry ladies if you are reading this.
