Singing in the Rain but not Rubbish Day

oh dear! I published this on the wrong blog. Apologies.

It has been raining. A lot. It has rained consistently for 10 days or more. Our house is starting to smell like a cave, the dogs are always wet, to say nothing of the children, and I am developing concerns about the black mould that Dr House so often looks for as the cause of near-certain death growing in secret damp corners.

I woke up this morning to another grey day and thought, “Gene Kelly! I can rock a song and dance”. 23 Thorns has gone back to work in a 9-5 job, so I was short a photographer. I took the rubbish out with my snazzy hat but there was nobody to record it. Most fortunately, on contacting a friend, I discovered that it was plastics day in Fourways Gardens. Into my mom car I hopped and off I dashed, for another travelling rubbish day. Most unfortunately, by the time I arrived, the sun had come out for the first time in weeks, so I present to you Singing in the No Rain. Thank heavens for puddles!

Happy Wednesday everybody! If the rain never stops, Puddle jump more. It’s wicked cool 🙂

  1. Does your daughter like Peppa Pig perchance? Jumping in muddy puddles has become so the vogue since Peppa Pig graced our tv screens here.
    Another great start to Thursday morning here, reading about your rubbish day exploits. 🙂

  2. I hope those mud puddle splashes were worth it.. lol The pictures are awesome, though I imagine you had a wonderful time cleaning up…

    Great shots!
