3.00pm for me is about time to go on the 'pick-up' school run, and more often than not, this is how the whole experience unfolds...,
3.00pm sky starts to go grey,
3.05pm gets darker still, wind picks up,
3.10pm just as I set foot out the door, the first drops of rain start,
3.20pm arrive at school, a bit wet,
3.30pm pick Luke up from pre-school, it starts lashing down,
3.35pm Lucy's classroom door opens, it starts lashing it down even more,
3.40pm scooters/bikes collected, begin journey home in the rain,
3.41pm kids complain they are wet,
3.42pm kids complain they are wet,
3.45pm I yell at them to get a move on as we're all getting wet,
3.50pm kids complain they are wet,
3.55pm arrive home (thank goodness we have a porch!), WET!,
4.00pm wet coats, clothes and shoes chucked on floor.
It's 2.30pm now, and oh look, surprise surprise, the sky is starting to cloud over...,
please tell me it's not just me this happens to?!
