A rainy June...

12 June 2013

Him: Let's get off at Wandsworth Common and walk the rest of the way home.
Her: Okay, that's cool.

We get off the train and I realise what I have agreed to is a massive mistake. It's raining. I hate the rain. 

Him: It'll be fine, we have trees to cover us most of the way. 
Her: Hmmm...not one of your best ideas, and we won't be covered all the way, so thank you for this imminent soaking. No really...thank you Ben.

I sulked for the first few minutes (I can be quite highly strung when it comes to rain) and in no time at all we were soaked through. 

Him: I have made a terrible mistake. 

Ice broken. We giggled. We took selfies. 
 And we really did look like silly when we finally got home. 
But it's the little things that make us the happiest. It always is. 


  1. You handled this much better than I would have. I hate the rain, too, and can't STAND walking around in it. Not even with an umbrella. I would have sulked until I was home, inside, with dry hair once again. ;)

  2. Ahh, I hate the rain too! Looks like you made the most of it though :) love the redesign of your blog too! xx

  3. Oh dear, the lovely perks of living in Britain! The weather is so unpredictable haha! At least you made the most of it!

  4. This is so cute! I don't really mind the rain all that much, especially if I'm on my way home. I love that feeling of getting home feeling like a drowned rat and then getting all cosy with comfy trousers and a cup of tea :) So good!

  5. it just really is the little things. this made me smile :)

  6. Your pics made me smile so much :) They remind me of what I was being told yesterday when I felt bad: It's your choice what you make of your situation, it's your choice if you want to feel good or bad.
    At first I got more grumpy ;) But I have to admit it's true! It's a choice to see the good things when bad things happen - and to like rain when you're getting soaked :) Love this post!

  7. I too am highly strung when it comes to the rain, which doesn't bode well when you are a dog owner! x

  8. I used to live right by Wandsworth common on Ravenslea rd. oh the memories, we could have been neighbours :)


Go on... stalk me a little..
