I have one child who only comes in the school holidays, and usually just one day a week ...

so ... the last time he came was just before Christmas, and it was very cold and drizzly. He came in October half term, and it was cold and drizzly/raining. He came 3 days over the summer holidays ... it rained heavily for 2 of those days, and then after a morning of sun on the 3rd day - torrential rain from midday onwards. I didn't work the may half term, and I can't remember last Easter!

so ... its been lovely weather here all weekend, and yesterday, and today, and tomorrow .... THURSDAY - this child is due to come .... RAIN! all day !!! He is an 'active' :D child who needs exercising each day, and we will still go out, but its not as much fun in the cold and the rain, especially when I also have 2 LOs in a double pushchair! I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked at the forecast just now! fingers crossed it changes! BUT every time this child is due to come, it rains!

Poor you.

Reminds me of a character in a Douglas Adams H2G2 novel who drove a truck and always got rained on. He didn't know it, but he was a Rain God, and the clouds wanted to show him their love. Perhaps your little chap is a rain god too?

If so, he can make a fortune being paid by the organisers of weddings, garden parties, sports fixtures, etc. All he has to do is stay away and attract all the clouds away from the venue. :thumbsup:

Isn't that typical!

We had quite nice weather today until I got the children ready to go outside. The sun had been shining but the minute I unlocked the back door the rain started. Luckily it wasn't too heavy so we went out anyway.
