All wet???? Is Tina’s topic, fun and playful. I have used rain so many times now so this time I chose children.

Children and water is a magical combination and quals happiness.

When it’s hot in Chicago … it’s hot. I landed in an extreme heatwave, every day around 80F/36C and not the smallest gust for 5 days. Inside the Loop area, the only place to cool down was in and around the Crown Fountain – July 2012

“Almost all creativity involves purposeful play.”

that it’s a miracle that we don’t dissolve in our baths.”

And my lovely wee “nephew”, Lewes … here 2,5 years old – taking his evening bath. – Stranraer (Scotland) November 2013
