Rain, rain, go away!


The brief sniff of Spring we were teased with only a few days ago, seems to have been replaced with October. Today has been a thoroughly miserable day - so much so, that I'm blogging about it before it's even finished.

My weekly riding lesson was a pleasure as ever, but the bits in between the hour-long ride in the indoor school, were cold, wet and muddy.

I got a lovely, smiley greeting from the boy when I arrived home, but then he had a very grumpy lunch (most of it ended up on the floor), and a little look out of the window (as shown in today's #366 photo), before deciding that bed was the best option.

That is where he is now. The husband is watching a Woody Allen film, and I have taken the opportunity to catch up on some blogging and face the ever-increasing pile of marking I have to tackle.

Whilst weekend family-time is precious, I don't always mind days like today. They take the pressure off having to constantly be on the go/doing something exciting. We're all in loungewear, the heating is on, and it's a good opportunity to chill before the onslaught of another working week...


  1. I fully support days doing nothing. In fact I don't thnk we should wait for rain to have lazy days. I am in my slippers, with a Ploughmans supper, cuppa and roaring fire, and of course, catching up on the more exciting lives of people who live in! X

    1. Weirdly, I am quite enjoying simultaneously blogging, Facebooking, Tweeting and marking. The weather is too filthy to be outside. Jealous of your roaring fire! x
