Yet another those wet and sunny days that have made up the summer. This one however was slightly different as a sunny early morning was replaced by storm clouds and heavy rain. So much rain in fact that some of the local drains were overwhelmed and some of the roads showed signs of flooding.
The weather once again made a mess of the day. In the morning I got up with Lucy and we snuggled together watching television until she wanted breakfast. Then after breakfast we played until we were joined by her older sisters, and they all went off together into the family room.
The storms hit around lunchtime. What surprised me was how scarred Lucy was of the thunder and lightening, I only ever seen that once before, no reassurance could settle her other being cuddled. Thankfully they didn't last too long and once the worse was over I distracted her with play as the rain fell outside.
The rest of the afternoon was once gain spent indoors, much to everyones disappointment. It's not that we didn't have fun, it just this is the time of year for getting outside and having fun. All kinds of games were played to try and make the day exciting.
After dinner, came quiet time and Lucy settled down to watch a DVD and the older two girls caught up with there friends online, exchanging gossip and stories of the day. Then came bedtime and after her stories from everyone, her kisses and cuddles, she fell asleep, to be joined later in the land of dreams by her sisters.
I just hope we get at least one more good day before all three girls are parted again. I'm not sure if this summer is any worse than any other but it feels it, and I can't remember another like it.
