As Zion Lee once famously said :
"Everyone wants happiness,
No one wants pain,
But you can't have a rainbow,
Without a little rain."
Well, my version today was - you can't have the colour-changing fun without a little rain ! It made me laugh actually. Pierre never wants to go to school on Wednesdays because he knows it's my day off, so he came out with the usual "but I don't waaaaant to go to schoooool". I looked out of the window, saw that it was drizzly and said "ooh look, it's raining, do you want to take the colour-changing umbrella?" Without a second's hesitation, he came racing down the stairs yelling "yeahhhh, can we go right now ?"! Wow, that worked better than I expected !
It is a very cool umbrella though so I can understand what he was so excited about ! It starts off as a perfectly pretty but perfectly ordinary blue umbrella covered with white cats and dogs.
As soon as we headed outside and the first drops of water started landing on the animals, something magical started happening.
And by the time I'd got back home from the school run, it had all got very funky and colourful. It gives a whole new meaning to raining cats and dogs !
The umbrellas also come in cupcake and flower designs so you could kit the whole family out - it certainly puts some fun and colour into what would be a grey day otherwise ! Actually, I've just spotted that they have colour-change coats too - how cool is that ?!
