#SoCS Jan. 15 2022 – A Rainy Day

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “a rainy day.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “a rainy day.” Enjoy!

When I wake up and hear the pitter-patter of raindrops, my thoughts of the forthcoming rainy day truly depend on the day.

If it is term time, and the heavens have opened, I rue it.

Wet play.

The kids are wild. Half the equipment is unusable as it becomes too dangerous and slippery. Wet coats are hung up around the room.

Driving in certain rainfall isn’t great, either. Now we live in the countryside, there are roads that get flooded, meaning a journey that takes even longer as I navigate routes.

All in all, rain on a school day is pure STRESS!

Now if it was a weekend, and we had no plans, then, perfect.

You’d find me curled up on the armchair, or snuggled in bed, with a hot drink and my latest read.

See.

Perfect.

    I love this, Ritu! Professionally wet weather is the worst, yet when you can be home and out of it, “let it pour” as they say!

    When we can stay in, rainy days are the best.

    Can’t imagine having to cope with kids and rain. Stress squared. Great use of the prompt, Ritu

    I don’t mind the rain (unless we had plans for sunny weather). It gives a cozy atmosphere.

    I agree with both. At school in the rain, is a nightmare. Home with nowhere to go is great.
