it's raining

The kids’ just love it when it rains for the first time in a long while. After months of dry and for the past few weeks’ very hot & humid weather the rain is always welcomed. And with a day off school today it was perfect timing to rain, rain & rain.
As the rain got heavier there were mad dashes to round up more umbrellas, gumboots & raincoats.

 I have just finished my 4th  load of washing towels, 
changes of clothes & soft toys all of which were soaked and very muddy. 

Back to school tomorrow.



  1. How much fun can two kiddie winks have in the rain! I find it hard to watch as towels,cushions,toys and covers are all dragged outside in the elements but you just have to let them live it up - and then spend hours and hours cleaning up later :) I wouldn't have it any other way.

  2. So cute. Lovely to see children playing outside, even if it is pouring. x

  3. They sure look like they had fun. It's worth the clean up for a fun day like that. Have a lovely day! Leahx

  4. Awwww. So cute. I wish I was a kid :)

    Re: Miele steamers
    Do you use the condensation catcher tray for steaming rice? Or did you get a baking tray as well?


  5. Thanks KP.

    I am going to check out Gastronorm pans :)

    I probably got the terminology wrong. It seems to be called a drip tray (


  6. Very cute! My little one loves playing cubbies with whatever she can use. Mimi xx
