This Just Little Things post will be full of rain related little things.
I’m from England, I love rain even if it is a pain in the arse at the best of times. Rain is so relaxing and it keeps me calm on stressful day and the sound of it helps me write and sleep. I love rain, it’s an amazing weather and us Brits are proud of it! And finally after loads of sunshine, towards the end of July we had a ton of rain come upon us, some thunder and lightning too and I can safely say, I loved it!
Even though I one day hope to live in a country that’s only weather is sunshine, I’m from England, the home of April Showers and thus I love a good rain storm. The sound of rain is the most appealing thing but the smell afterwards is just so fresh and it reminds me of Spring and Summer afternoons from my childhood.
This is by far one of the most relaxing things you can do during a car journey, especially if it’s a long car journey too. I know I’m not the only kid who did this, but I used to have little rain drop races, see which one could make it to a certain area before the others.
There’s nothing better than being snuggled up in your favourite lounge trousers, a baggy sweater or hoodie and wrapped up in your favourite blanket whilst it’s raining heavily outside. Even more perfect if you have a hot drink, some toast and a good book to read. Or even someone to cuddle with whilst you watch a film.
Speaking of hot drinks, a nice mint hot chocolate goes down a treat with the toast, good book and definitely cuddles. Marshmallows can be added to make it even more perfect, even an Oreo cookie or two if you’re feeling generous to yourself.
I have terrible sleep issues, but when I pop on a rain recording on YouTube, I manage to get to sleep pretty quickly. I love the sound of rain when I have my window open, on a tent and on a car roof. The sound of the rain bouncing off of the surfaces is so nice and relaxed.
Another relaxing sound that can send me to sleep. It’s great when you have a new umbrella and want to test it out. The sounds of rain-drops bouncing off of the plastic of a new umbrella is just a wonderful feeling.
These are some of the best days I’ve ever had. Whether I’m busy doing something or just relaxing in bed, the sound of rain outside my window is really nice and peaceful. All you need is some relaxing music and you’re set for the morning or afternoon.
Me and my friend Gabriella did this in May when we had a Lord of The Rings marathon. It was really relaxing and just nice whilst we watched the film and chatted away about Hobbits, Dwarves and Elves. I hope to have a movie marathon with boy soon when we get some rain.
I’ve read many books on days like this and it’s just helped to heighten my imagination for the characters and surroundings I’m picturing them in. I’ve read plenty of Sophie Kinsella books during rainy days. I love her books.
Those are all the rain little things that I could find, as well as the ones I really like.
I’m going to bed to listen to some rain sounds on YouTube whilst I attempt to try and sleep.
Do you like the sound of rain as much as I do? If so please let me know in the comments if you can relate to the little things I posted above.
Until next time, take care.
