Rain, rain, go away…

It’s really getting to all of us, it’s raining most of the days since middle of December, or it’s windy – too windy or wet to take the girls outside for play park time! Sad smile 

So when we had a small blue break in the sky shortly before lunchtime I decided to pack the Hobbits up (in jackets, puddle trousers and snow boots for warmth) and take them to the park (needing fresh air and tiring them out)– just to be greeted with very strong winds. So we took out-of-date meds to the pharmacy, then over to the small play park at the doctors and then the drizzle started again. When I asked the girls what they want to do the constant answer from Supergirl was “Doctors” or “Dentist” (both being just a few steps away from the play park). So there was no playing on the swings, going down the slide or sitting on the see-saw!

We went back, and the only fun I could get the girls was some puddle-hopping … after Supergirl finally let go of her hood which she held with both hands since leaving the house in the first place.

So … while rain is not nice and is not much liked, I think strong(er) winds are definitely higher up on the “don’t like” list for the Hobbitses.

Well, at least we 3 got some fresh air, and there’s hope that the weather gets a bit better this week – really could do with outdoor activity with them, instead of softplay or staying at home…

Send some of that rain our way - we're in our second year of drought!
The hobbits are adorable in those slickers.
