Weather Gods

Remember in April when everyone in the UK was complaining about lack of rain? 
We are never satisfied because now I'm complaining to the weather gods about the numerous times I have put out my washing in the hot sun. Only to suddenly see big fat rain drops falling down. So I run out ungracefully to desperately grab them off the line as quickly as possible. The minute I've finished and caught my breath the rain has stopped. Every single time.
Somewhere up there the weather Gods are pissing themselves laughing at me! 

Seriously I am never going to defeat the gigantic pile of Laundry that taunts me daily...

Trivial laundry issues aside, we have been making the most of the sunny periods this week. And besides, Hubby says it doesn't matter if you get caught out in the rain because your skin is waterproof. Hmm I feel a little sorry for the kids he teaches P.E to...

So we've been on some walks in the woods...


A bird egg we found
That was until a certain little man who shall remain nameless sat down and refused to walk any further...
So back we go to play in the garden...
Also check out our veggy patch its coming on nicely. See when we planted it here

Isaac decided to try to roll the hoops
He didn't manage it, but I rolled it towards him and snapped a shot. It certainly looks like he rolled it so that's the story we're sticking to...
Plus he's got some competition...

A little lazying in the garden, sure seems like summer is coming...

 Nature certainly thinks so...

From the looks of that water in the bird bath I wouldn't advise drinking that dude...
What do you do when you kids are bored of all their toys?

Give them a box, usually the one the toys came in. It'll keep them happy for hours.

Even if you suggest they take a brief pause to put their rain coats on. They will continue playing while shouting that 'we are waterproof mummy'. Hmm I wonder where you heard that from?
Before you know it, its a Pirate Ship or a Space Rocket and your kids run over to you calling you an alien (wouldn't be the first time).
Just don't leave your ship/rocket unattended even for a moment.

You never know what's going to sneak in...

 'That's right I'm in here'

'and yes I've been eating mud, what of it?'

 Before you know it, its a house...
Yes a house with Mummy's shoe, because whats a house without a shoe?

I guess this is what happens when you sleep on the job Isaac...

So here's to the weather Gods for keeping things interesting x
