It has been raining a lot here. A lot. There is no exaggerating the fact that it hasn’t stopped precipitating for well over a week. Now the weather mocks me by pretending to clear up. I’ll look out the window and suddenly it’s “Look, there’s some blue sky over there!” The sun even shows itself – if for a few moments. Then it’s all over, the clouds gather, the sun retreats. No. I was wrong, the weather is not clearing up, it’s simply redoubling its efforts! Ok, so I’m whining, yes I know. But…
I am SO OVER IT!
Everything is water-logged, the floors are damp, horrible mould spores are starting to populate. I can see cities of mould are growing everywhere, on the outside furniture and the cushions on my daybed, nothing is dry anymore.
This morning I sent my girls off to school in their rubber boots because I didn’t wish to see their brand new school shoes ruined by puddles and mud. They don’t care of course, they are only too happy to splash around in puddles and mud! I guess that’s the difference between being a kid and being a grown up. I hate puddles and mud now. Maybe I should look at it like they do and splash about in a few puddles, remember what it was like as a child. Maybe then I’ll not be bothered so much by the rain!
