NEVER EVER leave ur house without an umbrella.
it doesnt matter even if u r wearing a water proof jacket, or if ur shoulders are gonna fall off, or even if u think u'd drop dead on d middle of d road due to tiredness n excess baggage, NEVER LEAVE UR HOUSE WITHOUT AN UMBRELLA
WHY? cos u can never trust the weather in Scotland now the weather forecast, just like how u can never trust a man who says trust me
if it;s already raining when u have to go back, dont bother waiting under the shade for the rain to slow down.
WHY? cos u can wait until next year at d same stop, but the rain is a merciless, heartless thing. it'll never wait for u to reach ur destination before it starts poring!
Make sure you wear many layers of clothes even if it looks sunny when u leave the house in the morning.
WHY? cos the weather is bound to change in a matter of seconds. so if u wanna reach home in one whole functioning piece, just wear many layers. u'll never sweat in Scotland anyways.
If you are wearing boots, no matter how late or busy you are, make sure you wear skin socks or any pair of socks.
WHY? cos u wouldnt want to end up with sore feet at the end of the day
If ur umbrella is broken, go n get urself another one in a one pound shop. NEVER buy expensive umbrellas which u think might last.
WHY? cos no umbrellas can stand the wrath of the Scottish winds. u'll just be wasting extra cash
NEVER carry sling bags or fashionable bags.
WHY? cos it'll only kill ur shoulders. just get good water-proof bag packs
DO NOT leave the house without a pair of gloves.
WHY? u go n see la.. then u'll know why!
