What Houzz contributors are saying:
When it rains…Rainy days don’t have to stop you having an outing – if they’re not by the door, have umbrellas and gumboots in an easy-to-find place and go walking in the rain. An outing, no matter what the weather, is often necessary to keep those cobwebs at bay. Just make sure the boots and raincoats fit at the beginning of the summer holidays – too-short sleeves and cramped toes can make for last-minute disappointment. If you do find they’re too small, it’s time to get silly – put on some music and go dancing in the rain in the front or backyard instead. Laughter and exercise is a feel-good recipe that will stop kids (and you) going stir crazy even if you all spend the rest of the day indoors.
Day 6: Beautify.Cleaning tasks: Wipe down surfaces; polish wood furniture.Decluttering tasks: Pay attention to what is kept out in the open in your entryway and what is behind closed doors. You can choose to keep your cutest rain boots and cheery umbrellas on display, and hide the less attractive gear. Add something fresh and pretty, like a bouquet of flowers, to bring your space to life.
