Feeling the heat
It's pretty hot here at the moment and it really isn't much fun being nine months pregnant in this heat. The house was really stifling, so we were trying to keep cool in the garden this afternoon in the children's paddling pool (or Podling Pool, if you will!). The three of us got into our swimming costumes and Lily cooled us all down by spraying us with water from the hose. We had a pleasant hour and a half of water play in glorious sunshine and then, showing once again that you can't rely on the British weather for anything, the heavens opened and we had a thunderstorm. I actually found it quite refreshing as I stood in the rain in my swimming costume and quickly picked in the dry washing I had hung on the line just two hours previously. Within the hour, we were back to glorious sunshine again. The only predictable thing about the British weather is its unpredictability!
