“Wet washing hanging on the line
Drying very quickly when the weather’s fine
Along comes the wind and blows them all about
Flip, flap, flip, flap blowing in and out”
(children’s song from Play School)
Trawling through my photos once more I came across this one. Most of you are probably thinking “Why the heck did she even take this photo”? In my defense, when the Tween was a baby (yes they are nappies/diapers on the line) I was an avid scrapbooker. The definition of a scrapbooker is someone who takes photos of random things in order to record their life and
bore share with others how things used to be. (Please scrapbookers don’t hang, draw and quarter me. I said this tongue-in-cheek. I still love my scrapbooks and so do my family. The fact that I am several years behind in them is a whole other post).
Anyway, I love this photo. When I see it, it makes me happy. I was a stay-at-home mother with an active baby and although financially we were struggling, life was good! Life still is good. After all it’s what you make of it isn’t it?
Today’s post is not a philosophical one. It is one in praise of weather. The photo and the little ditty accompanying it reminds me of beautiful days. Today is a beautiful day. The forecast for the next two days is for blue skies ahead. This is vastly different to the horrid storms of the past week and the one forecast for later in the week. Today, we can enjoy the skies, the breeze, the sunlight and the joy that being outside brings.
And hang out our wet washing and know with certainty that it will dry!!
