….how wonderful it is to get totally wet in the rain.
Today, on the way back from the nursery, the skies opened up suddenly and we were drenched from top to toe. We had raincoats, knowing the unpredictable UK weather – but it was of no use. Just 5 mins of heavy heavy rain and we were drenched through 🙂 And both of us loved it!
For me it had been a while since I got wet like this, for Poohi, it was literally the first time. She is normally safely inside the buggy, but since the time I hid away the buggy – this is the first time, we got caught in the rain. It was so much fun, to let her jump in the puddles and and whoops of joy as her clothes got wetter 🙂 Just 5 mins but it was one awesome 5 mins! For a while, we could see the rains go away, as in there was no rain where we were, but we could see the heavy rains a little ahead of us. That was one wonderful sight. I remember somebody telling me how their front yard gets rain while the back yard doesn’t – this felt just like that.
We took 45 mins to walk back that 0.75 miles, but it was totally worth it 🙂 And getting wet in the rain was not the only thing, we also managed to spot around 20 snails. And the fact that it was a warm day made all the difference.
If only I had known, I would have carried some shampoo 😉
