Rainy Day Play


Today the weather is like this, the view over our little courtyard from the bathroom skylight is decidedly wet so I've been busying myself indoors and remembering childhood rainy days spent cutting and sticking, breaking out the colouring books and making a mess of my room pretending the floor was molten lava.

P.S My very first attempt at a gif, think I'll be needing more practice at this moving picture malarkey!

  4. The molten lava game! I love it! You should make a tent out of your bed sheets in the living room too, that's always fun :)

  5. I really have no idea how one goes about making a gif but you seem to have done a good job. I think I thought they were just embedded video type thing...shows what I know! I am currently sweltering with the heating on in a desperate attempt to dry clothes on the radiators - we need those Olympic t-shirts for tomorrow!

  17. Excellent gif! I learned how to make them last year (when I had a bit more blogging time on my hands) and now I think I've completely forgotten how to. They are a bit fiddly but really worth it, especially when they're as cute as this.
