Polka Dots, Rain, Sunglasses And Holidays

Polka Dots, Rain, Sunglasses And Holidays. Hello friends. So how are you today?

Rain!! How much fun? All I really needed was an umbrella and rain jacket. Like you do on holiday.

When you go on holiday and pack only summer clothes, you have to wear them even in the pouring rain.

I also forgot to pack for all weathers. It is hard enough packing for a family, never mind packing for winter weather conditions.

I really wish I had packed a Winter weather proof jacket for us all, warmer clothes, a woolly dressing gown and slippers.

Thankfully I also remembered to take some jeans with me!! Good old jeans!! I wore these a lot. All week really. In between my dresses.

Polka Dots, Rain, Sunglasses And Holidays. Make A Great Holiday Then! Not!!

I thought this bright red polka dot top, sunglasses and sandals might make the sun come out on this day but no such luck!I did try!!

It rained 5 days out of 5. What have we done wrong to deserve this? No sunbathing on the beach for us.

Posing outside our accommodation at Butlins last week. How cool are these flats? I did like these.

Wet toes in the puddles!! I did not like this. No getting my socks wet though.

This week it has also been beautiful, the sun has been out and Summer has arrived. Now it is the weekend and the children have time off school the torrential rain has come back!


At least the garden will be happy and green again.

Grr, lots more mowing to do next week then.

Polka Dots, Rain, Sunglasses And Holidays

Imagine strolling through a quaint cobblestone street on a rainy holiday afternoon, the patter of raindrops creating a soothing melody.

As you navigate through the gentle drizzle, your outfit brightens the gray ambiance – you’re adorned in a chic polka dot ensemble, the playful dots dancing rhythmically with each step.

Donning stylish sunglasses, you add a touch of glamour while shielding your eyes from the occasional sun peeking through the clouds.

Despite the rain, there’s an air of joy and excitement as you embrace the holiday spirit, savouring each moment with a sense of adventure. Hoping that the sun will show it’s face!!

The contrast of polka dots against the rain’s backdrop evokes a whimsical charm, a reminder that even amidst storms, there’s beauty to be found.

Apart Together- Morph In London:

Thirdly, Apart Together- Morph In London.

Tony Hart, an artist, presented a children’s television show called “Take Hart” in the 1970s where Morph made his debut.

I used to love watching Morph. Following his debut on “Take Hart,” Morph later had his own spin-off series, “The Amazing Adventures of Morph.

Morph has developed a devoted following over time and is now regarded as a classic figure in the field of stop-motion animation.

He is still well-liked by both kids and adults, and his charming and cheerful temperament has made him a beloved TV character. Apart Together– Morph In London.
