The lovely sun has been working overtime the past week or so and I think it’s decided to have a little holiday this week. Typical that it’s half-term too. So instead of the sunny hot weather we’ve been getting used to, we’ve had rain which has made it cooler.
Sophia has been fairly good the past few days and she deserved a treat. An excuse for us to get out the house and breathe in some fresh air. We live close to the ‘Worcester woods country park’ You may have seen on my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram that we went there during the sunny weather. It was quite impressive. We all loved it.
Anyway, we came back. It was around 16°C with light rain. It felt a lot warmer though. Enough for me to wear my shorts and flip-flops. I might have looked like a knob or a hobbit but nevermind. You can be the judge.
When we arrived it was actually a lot busier than I had been expecting. This time we didn’t go for a walk through the woods but never mind. Instead we kept to the park area so Sophia could play on the swings, slides and everything in between. She couldn’t wait to go down the ‘Big Slide’.
Me being the strange person I am decided to make a brave choice. I went barefoot outside in public in the rain. I was so nervous about it and how people would react. I didn’t need to be. No body said anything or gave me any funny looks. In fact I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It felt amazing to feel the wet grass, mud and even stones under my feet. It’s definitely something I want to do more often, if not all the time!
What’s your thoughts on going barefoot in public? Am I strange? Would you have said something to me? Let me know in the comments below.
