So it was 4.30pm. The kids were cranky and as I peered out of the window, black clouds were looming in the distance.
‘Let’s go for a picnic!” The Hubster suddenly announced.
Now I’m not one for knocking a bit of spontaneity, so we got our bits together and as quick as you can say ‘I hear thunder’ we were at the park.
Just as we pulled up, the heavens opened:
But we weren’t going to let a bit of torrential rain scupper our plans so we got out and kitted ourselves out for the picnic.
Now I’ve had a bit of feedback on my first blog. The Hubster’s not too familiar with the term ‘positive criticism’ and his comment was ‘it’s too long’. So I’m not going to detail the whole event. However, I would like to note a few points to follow when visiting the park on a rainy day for future reference.
1) Ensure all members of the family have correctly sized outer rainwear garments.
2) Check all said family members have weather appropriate footwear, ie not open-footed/open-toed or fabric based.
3) Cease the opportunity of a break in the rain to choose a picnic spot, but ensure it is close to a place of cover. ( Ideally one all members of the family can fit under)
4) You know that spare bag of clothes you always drag around wherever you go but never use? Yep, don’t forget to bring it on this occasion.
5) If a goose comes at you barking (??!) in an aggressive fashion, DO NOT under ANY circumstances bark back.
This may just look like an ordinary goose to you, but I can assure you, this fella was ANGRY!
I’m not sure this final one is weather related, but hell something got up his beak.
Happy picnicking people!
