It has been a real outdoors week at our house this week. It’s been cold but dry and crisp and the girls have so much energy to burn off – so what better way to do it. I’ve been trying to get rid of the tons of leaves that are everywhere, but with a baby who now decides to make a break for freedom every time my back is turned, I had to give up and wait until the weekend when Daddy is here to either get rid of the leaves or be run ragged by his daughters!
Sod’s law though, it then decided to rain 2 days in a row, so the leaves are now a soggy mess and won’t move quite as easily with the leaf blower. So having abandoned the leaves, I opted for puddle jumping instead. We went for a walk down our back lane between the fields. The cattle were only moved indoors a few ago, so the lane is quite churned up by both the cows and the tractor, leaving enormous muddy puddles.
With our wellies on, I just thought, I don’t care how dirty they get, they’ll wash and their clothes will wash. They couldn’t really have gotten any dirty than they did, but the fun they had ,was worth the muddy kitchen and two cycles in the washing machine for their clothes!
I couldn’t get her away from these tiny puddles, she thought this was it and kept running back – little did she know what lay around the bend!
Big sis shows her how it’s done
Are we dirty enough yet?
Maybe I can get a bit more mud on me, before we go home.
Pass the stain remover!
