Rain Dance for Mum-me

Mum-me said...
Please get your two little rain-sogged darlings to do and rain dance (and prayer) for us today - it's already 30*C at 9.30am and we're heading for 40 ..... and no air conditioning.

We have said our prayer but do you remember...

When I was boy we would be sent outside, Mum and Dad made us run around house to make a breeze. Now when I say house I mean it was a old coal hopper near the steel works blast furnace. 40*C! Ha! We used to dream of it cooling down to 40. Luxury!!

and now for the rain dance:

and the post rain dance - I like to call this one Splat!:


  1. I am not a Monty Python fan, so I didn't recognise the quote.

    Tell Lion and Dragon thanks for the rain dance - and the prayer - I hope it works. It's 12noon and 35*C already. The hottest part of our day is about 6 - 7pm.

    HB and I watched Supernova last night. Not the best show to watch when it's still 33*C at midnight!!

  2. Don't you remember being sent out to run around the house when it was 40 or hotter? The quote is mine and more a reflection of how good it is today compared to the 'Good Old Days of the 70s & 80s.

  3. I hope the boys did the 'right' raindance - ie. the one that sends the rain south and not the one that calls the rain to us :-)

    Very cute, either way !

  4. My father's influence means I am quite aware of the Monty Python allusion (? correct term)
    Love their get up! Hope it works and send rain down south.


I'd love to hear from you, even if it's just to say "Hi, I stopped by for a read today"
