Little Miss Blonde once bought me a pair of Sealskinz waterproof gloves for a present. I thoroughly tested them on Dartmoor and was pleased to report back that they were warm, comfy and waterproof. They claimed to be easy to get on and off even with wet hands and I was thrilled that that was indeed the case. Unfortunately, I’m Blonde through and through, and it didn’t take long for me to lose one of them: the left one. I ordered a new pair and tried to keep it secret from Little Miss Blonde, but she found out! Blonde Two soon followed in my footsteps and lost her own glove. She too lost her left glove. Now, if the glove making and selling people were sensible and Blonde (I think that’s an oxymoron: a sensible blonde) they would sell gloves singly to those of us who do not want to spend lots of money on a pair. I’m sure Mr Shakespeare Senior would have jumped on this business opportunity!
Little Miss Blonde has just returned from a trip to the Peak district and has confessed to losing a Sealskinz glove! Guest which one?! Luckily she lost her right glove and has now got a new/old pair of gloves. The only snag is that they’re different styles, but that’s ok. She wears odd socks all the time so odd gloves shouldn’t be a problem.
