Rodney Times - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - - Rhon­wyn

I hope you’ve got lots of in­door ac­tiv­i­ties planned for the lit­tlies these school hol­i­days - for ideas look at our What’s On col­umn. We en­dured a cold, wet week­end and I don’t think the weather’s due to im­prove any time soon. We can’t com­plain too much though, it’s been a pretty mild win­ter so far.

Now’s the time for hunker­ing down, hearty meals and em­brac­ing any mo­ment of sun­shine that comes your way. I al­ways re­mem­ber, on a win­ter trip to Scot­land, my un­cle in­sist­ing there was no such thing as bad weather - only in­ad­e­quate cloth­ing. He be­lieved in rug­ging up and get­ting amongst it - rain, hail or snow. So re­mem­ber, if the kids get cabin fever, and the in­door ac­tiv­i­ties aren’t quite cut­ting it, don a rain jacket and a pair of gum­boots and head out­side - there’s noth­ing bet­ter than a splash in a muddy pud­dle.
