“The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day.”
The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
Before you read any further, I want to state for the record that there really isn’t anything quite like a bright cheerful day in London, with blue sky above and the sun warm on my face.
But on the other hand, I truly love a rainy day, and today seems set to be one of those.
On a rainy day I feel ‘let off the hook’ …
To not ‘make good use of the weather‘;
To not have to have a busy schedule;
To wear a giant comfy wooly jumper;
To drink copious cups of tea;
To catch my breath from the highs and lows of the working week;
To spend the day in books, card games, day dreaming and working out whodunit in an old Agatha Christie film.
Bring on the rain!
P.s. Study preparations are ticking over slowly, though I’ve hit a couple of snags. One snag is that, having been out of formal education for more that 3 years (ha ha), I’m required to give an employment reference. This is problematic, since my last 7 years of employment have been in our family business and I can’t quite see how my Hubby can write me an unbiased reference?
P.p.s. The second snag is that I’ve discovered that my preferred university, from which I got an unconditional offer to study, turns out not to be accredited with the BPS (British Psychological Society) and I can’t choose an unaccredited course.
P.p.p.s. We are not yet fully out of lockdown here in the UK and Hubby and I are getting a serious case of Travel-bug. Going pretty much anywhere is exciting right now – even a trip to a local coffee shop gets Hubby excited.
P.p.p.p.s. Hubby is sitting in the car outside to try and give me some space – I’m always complaining that I don’t get any time alone. Bless him. He’s so sweet. I’ve just WhatsApped him “Polly” which is our code for “I’ve put the kettle on!”
P.p.p.p.ps. No interest in our flat yet. In fact we had no viewings this week after a number 3 viewings last week. The latest feedback from one couple is that the flat was “too nice”. They are looking for a “project”.
