Wet Wet Wet

I feel it right through my jeans
I feel it right through my coat
Rain is all around me
And so the feeling grows
It’s written on the wind
It’s everywhere I go, oh yes it is…

(with apologies to Wet Wet Wet)

Today I got rottenly soaked right through on the way home from dropping the boy off at nursery. It was part two of 4 walks today. The walk over (carrying the boy in a sling) to nursery took 14 minutes. The way back, in driving rain, took 11 minutes. Funny how crap weather can make me go faster! It’s 0.6 miles each way.

After two weeks off, we were all back at work and nursery today. It’s good to be back in the routine and I enjoy my work, but family time is so much better!

Janathon stats:

3.5 miles walked

Moves: 5,704 steps (though GPS got switched off at some point so it might be more – will see how tomorrow compares).

Out in the rain


Out in the allotment, in the rain, we gathered in the last of the potatoes, weeded the beds and planted the green manure seeds.

Despite, or because of, the driving rain it felt good to be outside getting jobs done.

London picnic weather


Our friends cancelled a birthday picnic for their son due to the uncertain weather forecast. A reasonable decision, as it turned out.

We were going to go to occupy vs the arms fair instead when another friend pointed out that Sunday was our last chance to swim in the serpentine lido this year.

We had a picnic under a tree and it rained a lot.

We swam in 17-degrees water and were glad we went. We hope our kid will love the outdoors, whatever the weather.
