I guess it is because its so horrible weather wise, and the winter sickness bugs cold and flues that seem to be a constant here, really don't make for the get up and go feeling. It's not that we haven't been outdoors at all, its just that by the time I have managed to get everyone togged up and the dog out the door, it normally results in complaints and moans from at least one of them that they are tired, cold, hungry or such like, couple that with the weather being so dull and horrible that even if I do try to take a photograph of the scowling faces, then it is blured!
However, this weekend when my daughter and her friend said they were bored and wanted to go jump in puddles, instead of passing them off (too cold, wet, muddy - not really kean on bathing the dog...) I decided to go with it. I grabbed my camera, and off we went.
It was indeed cold, wet and muddy, but the girls were not deterred.
Which never fail to bring smiles.
kicking up mud, getting completely filthy and laughing about it
Yes we got filthy, but clothes soon wash don't they.
Here's a video of the girls jumping in the puddles too... and emptying the wellies after!!
Why not grab your wellies and your camera, get outside, forget about the washing and the complaints, and you never know you might have fun, then come over and link up with Coombe Mill by clicking the badge below.
