I’ve never been one to let the weather dictate what I do and since becoming a stay at home mum, I’ve really made a point of not allowing the rain to keep us cooped up inside. I’ve often felt the term ‘stay at home mum’ is quite ridiculous because I don’t think many of us actually stay at home that much.
