There are a few things certain in my daily routine that I have to do each and every day. No matter what. Wake up (I hope) and make the bed. Pop some clothes on. Get mine and my Children’s breakfast ready and brush my teeth. Also, once these first few jobs have been done I have to walk Mollie The Collie.
She is always excited to get outdoors and will not leave me alone until she has had her first walk of the day. No matter what the weather is like. Not once has she thought, Oh it is raining today, I will let Mum stay inside and I will just chill!!
This means I have to brave the Great British Weather!! No time to be ill, when you have a dog.
We go walking everywhere. Through parks and woods, streets and trails. A good few hours each and every day. Just lately with this current spell of wet weather, I have been fed up trying to dry trainers out. Nothing worse than soggy trainers.
Thankfully Millets have come to the rescue and asked me to take part in their Take The Lead collaboration.
Millets wanted to make this cold wet spell a little easier for me. They asked me if I would like to choose a waterproof jacket from their Women’s Jacket’s collection. Also some proper walking shoes from their Women’s Footwear hero collection. To help me embrace those Winter walkies.

I am really pleased with the things I picked out. The shoes will do some miles over the next few months and this jacket will keep me warm and dry too. Brilliant.
