Rainy Days – Pros and Cons

I know it’s a window, but maybe I can climb through to outside.

Pro: When it’s raining everything green becomes much richer in colour, so vivid and verdant. I wonder if it is something to do with the clouds blocking certain rays of light, or if their colour creates an offset which makes an illusion of a much brighter green. I don’t know, but it’s beautiful none the less. My camera really doesn’t do it justice.

Con: Your toddler keeps grabbing your hand and taking you to the door, insistently pointing to his sand-pit, swing and outside in general because he’s sick of playing inside. You have to keep trying to explain to him that we can’t go outside because it’s raining. Two minutes later he grabs your hand and leads you to the door again.
