"How close?" I hear you ask.
"Very close," I reply somewhat cagily.
"Why so cagey?" you ask.
"Well," I dither, "If you knew how close, you would judge me for driving to work this week."
"Never!" you exclaim, "There is not a judgemental bone in me. Pray tell"
"OK," I concede, "But let me preface this by stating that it has been cold and rainy and I can't find my umbrella"
"Noted" noted you.
It is approximately 200 metres from my front door to my office
"Get out!" you scream, "There is a special place in hell for lazy, unenvironmentally friendly gits like you. Get thee to an umbrella shop"
So, I have been looking. So far, I like these...
and this is my fave
from I am a Greedy Girl
But, I'd rather grow me one of these so I don't ever run out
