Raindrops on roses & whiskers on kittens 

  
It wouldn’t be a traditional English summer without some rain, right? Well we’ve certainly had plenty in the last few days. I’m not complaining though, we were blessed with beautiful sunny, dry days at the start of our English summer holiday allowing picnics and trips out to the countryside, meanwhile back at home in Gibraltar it’s been sizzling hot. We have been so lucky to escape the heat for a few weeks. We took a train trip down South for a few days to catch up with old friends, and it was delightful. We met this gorgeous little kitten, who’s a recent addition to one of the families we visited.

  
This was him recovering after being chased around the house by five overexcited children! The rain didn’t dampen our trip at all though. We still got out for a short, wet, woodland walk.

   
Did I mention I love trees??!

 
One glorious side effect of rain is lush plants, so it’s not all bad!

  
The local wildlife enjoyed the wet weather too – much to the enjoyment of the youngest members of the party.

   
 
We had five train trips in total on our journey south a rare treat for one member of the family who loves trains but doesn’t get the chance to ride them often. I loved watching the English countryside whizzing by.

  
In amongst our days away I have managed to fit in a couple of trips to craft shops (hurrah!) and have some new supplies to take back to Gibraltar with me. I’m brimming with ideas, I just need to find the time to get busy!

  
I hope your summer plans aren’t being spoiled by the rain. Thanks for stopping by!
