So it was officially the wettest April on record, I guess it was always going to be after the BBC announced their hose pipe bans! Please BBC, don’t go forecasting of a BBQ summer next!
Rain, rain we don’t care!
There is no keeping my 6 indoors whatever the weather is up to! In fact I think they possibly stayed out longer in the rain last weekend than usual! Whether it was a quick jump around in the garden or a trek down the banks of the river they really didn’t mind that it was raining and cold. Clio in complete denial insisted on wearing her new birthday leggings and t shirt and going bare foot, seemingly unaware it was only six degrees outside!
Our Trampoline saves the day
I love these Pictures of Jed and Theo after a wet day with only indoor play at school. They couldn’t even wait to change out of their school uniforms, instead dashing straight from the car to over the lane to our trampoline. There they let off steam for an hour while it poured down on them. They were having so much fun I just left them too it and resigned myself to another wash load that evening.
Lucky on the Farm
We are lucky to have the space and freedom here on the farm, but even if we didn’t live here I think my children would still need to find a way to release some energy outdoors and I know many of you agree too as I have had some lovely links to the site in April through sun and rain. Thankfully the week here ended so much better than it started, we even cycled to and from school, a 5 mile round trip with some serious hills!
