Sunshine After The Rain

Rain on Loch

Yesterday I had to go into university, and it was one of those days when it’s raining when you wake up in the morning, and still raining when you go to bed. It just never stopped! As the kids and I walked to the bus stop past the loch we got soaked. As we walked across the campus to the library passed another loch we got soaked. By this point my socks were wet, and our brollies saturated, but we were all in surprisingly good humour. You see we all knew that if we didn’t have all this rain, Scotland wouldn’t be the beautiful green lush land with lochs, rivers, waterfalls and burns, that it is. And we also knew that it wouldn’t last. Today has been exceptionally windy (I’ve had to chase my bin a couple of times!), but it has been beautiful. Look at this picture I took of the sunset reflected in the window of our new outdoor office.

    I love those. And rain has the advantage of making you feel very cosy when you’re on the warm, dry side of a window.

    It does, doesn’t it, Nicholas! But do you know what I really love? Having a long lie in on the weekend and hearing the rain lash against the window, safe in the knowledge that I don’t have to go out in it!

    You are so very right! Even better if it’s on a day when you can stay in bed and everyone else has to venture out in it! Warm blankets and Schadenfreude — does it get any better?

    Oh that’s so mean, Nicholas! But you’re right!!!
