Rain brings out the Glasgow girl in me – blame it on years and years of dreich days and being completely drookit on hockey pitches, on bracing family walks, sprinting in and out of supermarkets.

Needless to say when I was emigrating to Australia we checked rainfall  in each city.

We started in Sydney in 2001 and nearly 6 years moved to Queensland to be near family.

The best thing about Queensland is the lack of rain – but no-one told me that when it rains in Queensland it is bordering on national emergency .. that is definitely something I have got used to and an umbrella isn’t going to cut the mustard… watch as it is whipped out of your hand and bumps down the road.

So when I had had enough of rain dripping down my neck as I wrangled kids into car seats and dogs into cars I bought my wee rain mac and as I thought I am going to have to wear this a bit I might as well get one I like.

I chose rose gold metallic back in 2008 and it has done me proud – I scotchguard it to keep out the leaks and it still looks good.. despite years of wear.

So if you like me are sick of everyone else staying dry and being completely soaked – whether it is on the sidelines of the soccer pitch, or on the school run, on your bush walks  or at some cool music festival (you complete bastard -I am jealous) then here are a few wee macs that have a whole lot of attitude.

Rain Rain Fuck off ..

Here is me in mine now in its 8th year ..
