It was that kind of day

You know when it rains? And rains. And rains. And rains.

And rains some more.

Then when you think it couldn’t possibly rain any more, it does.

It’s been like that for days in Sydney. So this morning I decided we were not leaving the house unless the sun came out.

I pulled the couch apart and made a fort. It was that kind of day. I took the top off our ottoman and put pillows in the storage part with blankies so Easter Rabbits and baby could have a bed in the loungeroom.

As I was walking all over the couch moving cushions and tucking blankets in, Love Bug said to me careful mumma. I am being careful Bubba. No mumma, really careful. Okay my love. Beary {ever the site forepaws!} checked out my handiwork.

Then Bubba got into the bed I’d made for her loveys.

The sun did come out for about half an hour, and the second it did we put our gumboots and coats on and went for a big walk, stomping in puddles and kicking through piles of wet leaves.

When we got back, Bubba climbed back into the bed made for loveys. And it became her base for most of the day.

I probably should have packed it up a little earlier than I did because trying to get her to go to bed in her cot tonight was a little tricky. I’ll remember that for next time, but for today, a fort with a built-in bed was just what the rainy day ordered!
