FOWC with Fandango — Puddle

Just add kids!

I can remember seeing kids jumping in puddles and having a whale of  time. Smiling parents looked on and not a word of reprimand was said. Wellies of all colours and patterns were obviously worn, and sometimes, even the parents joined in.
Those were the days. Some kids aren’t allowed to be kids and have fun anymore, having to keep clean or look after their designer footwear.

Hubby and I don’t exactly jump in puddles, but we do tend to walk in the shallow ones to clean our shoes, especially if we’ve been on the beach or the local grass has recently been cut. We would love to jump sometimes, but our knees just couldn’t stand the shock!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    We use to run in the rain with our wellies and bathing suit on, this during summer storms. Fun days. My son had rubber pants to play outside because when he was a little wee one if there was anything that looked like water he was right there in.
