“Oh no, has your welly come off? Well I’m driving at the moment but I’ll put it back on for you when I can stop.”

    Sounds like she gave it some welly.

      Indeed. The boot was on the other foot, though literally and not metaphorically so it didn’t help.

      In the end it was. But she did stick the boot in first.

        It’s never too early to book Miss Proclaims in for the driving theory test. She could learn all about how some emergencies are welly important!

    Is a welly a boot? If so, why is it called a welly? Is that a family thing or a British one?

      British I think. Abbreviation of Wellington Boot. Named after the Duke of Wellington. But essentially waterproof rubber boots.

        That would definitely be British as I’ve never heard the term in Canada. Interesting.

      The boot is worn on The Spaceship Enterprise-as it is made from vulcanised rubber. Wellingtons have a proud military history.
      That’s the logical answer to your question.

        Although it is technically known as The Starship Enterprise. But I am as pedantic as a Vulcan.

    I thought you dug a welly for water and the boot was the trunk of a car. I’ll never understand English and I’m supposed to be speaking it
