Rainy Day Activities

Hello everybody,

I love rainy weather! Just the thought of listening to the rain while snuggling up in a cozy sweater relaxes me. The only time I don't like the rain, is when I'm at school. Walking to school in the rain is horrible, because your shoes fill with water and your legs get very wet. At lunch there is nowhere to sit because the ground is wet even under shelter. Its freezing cold because the uniform requires us girls to wear little skirts with thin tights and short sleeved shirts.

The first few days of this week have been the rainiest few days in Australia in a long time. It was non-stop heavy rain and was extremely cold. Our wifi was constantly dropping in and out and our phones and TV's didn't work, so it forced me to get offline for a while, which was been nice to be honest. I now have a list of things I like doing on rainy days that don't include going on my phone or watching TV :)

1. Take A Walk

Yes I know it is dry and sunny in this photo but I
couldn't take my camera out in the rain :(

Grab your umbrella, a jacket and head outside. Just because it's raining, doesn't mean we can't go out and enjoy nature – right? Plus, it's always so pretty outside in the rain. It's also really quiet and empty outside because everyone is inside sheltering from the rain! Even though socialising is fun (as awkward as I am) it's still nice to head outside and have some alone time.

2. Re-Organise Your Room

I clean my room a lot – I hate having it messy, because if my room is cluttered, so is my mind. Re-organising your room can be a great way to update your room a little, and make it feel clearer and nicer. If you are having trouble starting (because it is kinda like a chore) just look at nice rooms on Tumblr or watch Room Tours on YouTube. Even though it will make you jealous of other rooms, it will motivate you to make your room tidy and organised like the rooms you looked at.

3. Bake!

I love baking, it's fun and a good excuse to eat sweet cakes. I've been making cupcakes, cookies and even pancakes! Have a sweet feast with your family and eat the yummy treats you made!

4. Do Some Scrapbooking

I really enjoy scrapbooking, mainly because I love taking photos and when you scrapbook things you can look through old photos and remember things you've done. I am currently making a high school scrapbook, where I am pasting in photos from year 7, 8,9,10,11 and 12 of me and my friends. It will be a good thing for me to look back on when I'm an adult. Scrapbooking is fun and easy, all you need is a scrapbook, photos and coloured pens and pencils.

5. Read

I am a massive bookworm – I can literally sit and read for hours on end! My favourite books at the moment are And Then There Were None, We Were Liars, The Intern and To Kill A Mockingbird. And Then There Were None is my favourite mystery novel by my favourite mystery author, Agatha Christie. We Were Liars is a book by E. Lockhart full of drama, romance and mystery. The Intern is a book written by my cousin, Gabrielle Tozer (DISCLAIMER : I'm not being biased) and it's an easy read for teenage girls. It is one of my favourite books regardless of the fact that my cousin is the author. In English this term, we are studying a novel, and we had to read To Kill A Mockingbird. It's definitely a classic and I really enjoyed reading it!

That's all for now,
