One of Oscar's favourite cartoon characters is Peppa Pig. She's a cheeky little pig who loves jumping in muddy puddles with her brother George. She has become quite a phenomenon in our household, and Oscar delights in quoting his favourite lines:
"Eeeeeeek too SCAAA-RY!"
On a recent sweltering autumn day, we were delighted by an afternoon sun shower. The rain fell in big fat drops and smelt delightful. It was such a welcome relief to the persistent 30 + degree days we've been having for more then five months.
The first thing Oscar did was pull on his gumboots, and declare "Time to jump in muddy puddles!"
"Oh where's the rain gone?"
Today we enjoyed another day of autumn rain, and this time the cool weather came with it. I have my fingers crossed those 30 degrees are finally behind us.
