Lovely pic Lizzie  I don't do dresses in the day I'm no good at bending at the knees gracefully and I don't want to scare the wildlife  ....

Only do mid calf at the shortest - this one is ankle length 

 

Not drowning but waving Nut   and now it's stopped we're steaming  - phew!

Thunder storm happening with water butt filling activity going on - lounging on the terrace has ceased and I'm on the sofa with the athletics and some knitting.

It's described as 'wind proof'.  My guess is that it either twists or you need to lever it off somehow.  

Once  you've got it off once you'll be able to have a look at the construction and work out how it's meant to work. 

Good luck

It makes you wonder about some of those other brown patches we've ID'd 

It does Nut - it really does LOL
