Yes, it's wet, very wet! I know we need it, the ground needs it, the plants need it, but all at once? All outdoor plans for the allotment have been put on hold, but it hasn't stopped the planting of seeds thank goodness. We'll just have a massive panic when we don't have enough clear ground to plant them all!
The boys have been waking up in the attic rooms to the pattering of the rain on the roof. Something quite comforting about that, being all snug and warm knowing it is the complete opposite outside, but it doesn't help get them out of bed any earlier!!
Sophie is about the only one who has relished the weather. Her comment the other morning was "Look mummy it is raining puddles!" She rather likes puddles, jumping in them, digging the mud up from the bottom of them and letting it run through her fingers, throwing things in them, sswishing them, kicking them... the list is endless...
... as is the wet clothes!! Notes the canvas shoes, the only things I could get on her feet whilst waiting for her wellies to dry out AGAIN!!
A mud splattered innocent face!!
And more muddy, soaking wet clothes! I have resigned myself to this!!
I have been taking the opportunity to crack on with the second ring for the Guild exhibition. My needle felted robin sat on some eggs, and I am now crocheting billions of leaves to make a safe little enclave for the robin to raise its brood. It's so hard to get a good camera angle to show what it is like. But I am rather pleased with it!
Gimli is not a fan of the wet! He has spent much of this week like this! And when he ventures out he is shaking the wet from each paw with every step he takes. If he gets caught in the rain he comes in miaowing in a most indignant way!
How have you been spending this wet weather? I am hoping we might just get a glimmer of sun soon!
