Word of the Week-Rain

This weeks word was almost going to be pancakes but after being defeated by them twice this week I’m going with rain. Rain has certainly dominated the school run this week, I’m still waiting for my shoes to dry out.

Our route to school runs alongside a brook that usually holds very little water. It was such a shock on Tuesday to see it actually flowing and almost full ! Not to mention the size of the puddles that I had to carry Daisy through.

Along with the rain came snow, sleet and hail stones. Daisy and Jake were really excited about the huge puddles and the chance of snow. Me not so much I was freezing with soggy shoes wishing someone would carry me over the puddles.

I haven’t even had the option of an umbrella as Jake has had to go in the buggy while it’s been pouring down. I can’t wait for the day when I have both my arms free again.

Getting Daisy to school on Thursday for World Book Day in her Rapunzel dress was interesting. I think she must be the first fictional princess to wear welly boots.

Having looked at the weather forecast this morning it looks like rain is going dominate for the weekend too. Oh well it’s nice weather for ducks as they say.

    Sounds like it’s been a soggy week. We’ve had a fair amount of rain but no quite as much as you from the sound of it. I have to keep reminding myself it’s good for the garden as it’s not the most fun to be out in. That said, my youngest is enjoying the puddles! #WotW

    Oh dear, I’m not a fan of rain at all so your week has been my nightmare! It’s been a bit soggy here too, but not as bad as that!

    Oh dear, a very wet week! It’s pouring down here today, too. I do hate soggy school runs, though I do at least have the option of an umbrella these days which does make it easier. Like you say, the kids love it, but me, not so much! Here’s to drier days soon x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    I’m so glad I don’t have to do the school run in the rain anymore, it’s not fun! I do think it’s about time someone invented an umbrella that attaches to a buggy so you can be covered hands free.

    It has been particularly soggy of late – I’ve had no end of moaning about it! And comments like “Why don’t we live in Egypt, it’s sunny there right now! Or Russia mum, it’s nice and snowy there.” Honestly! #wotw
