Rain! Rain!

It is raining here today.  Great big fat drops that squidge down the windows.  My chooks are huddled in a corner of their coop shaking wet feathers.  The rabbit is droopy and bedraggled.  The lemon tree is vibrant and cheerful.  The snails are partying in the front garden. 
It is a day for cocoa with marshmallows and toasted hot cross buns.
It is a day for snuggling with my little ones and reading and re-reading favourite stories.
It is a day for red wine casserole slowly bubbling in the oven spreading warm garlicky smells through the house.
It is a day for diving into baskets of luscious fibre and setting my wheel in motion.
It is a day just for being, enjoying, relishing. 
There is something so delightful about a rainy almost-Winter day in amongst the Summer.

Happy rainy day,
Keep smiling,
Nell

p.s. giveaway winners will have parcels in the mail in the next few days :)

I am so loving this non traditional summer - the only thing I miss is taking the kids to the beach regularly.
Our garden has never been so amazing with all the rain.
