Get puddled

Of course, there’s only one thing to do – dig out your wellies and jump in the puddles! It may seem a little childish, but I’d definitely do it. There is something really liberating about kicking and splashing in puddles. The aftermath, however, is wet socks (the #1 enemy of all mankind); so prepare yourself.

Shower out? Shower in!

I would take a nice, hot shower – and nearly fall asleep in the process. Knowing that it’s icky and wet outside just makes taking a shower in your cosy home all the more pleasurable.

It’s for science

Take your mobile phone outside to test whether it is waterproof. ... or, if you have a Note 7, you can see if it will really explode!

Double your pleasure

On a rainy day, I love to stay at home with a cup of hot chocolate in one hand and a book in the other!

Hope it’s not hailing taxis!

If it is raining cats and dogs, we should bring cages to catch as many of them as we can.

Misery loves company

Call a friend over and have some fun! Enjoy the time indoors, as most of the time, this doesn’t happen. We always have to go to school or tutorials, or do other activities, so you should stay indoors, watch a movie and maybe even throw a sleepover to spice things up! You never know, you might just want to do it again!

Strike a pose

Sit by the window, sipping coffee, reading a book, and watching the rain fall while listening to music and petting the cat that is curled up next to you. This is so tumblr omg.

Who’s up for KTV?

Sometimes the bad weather may make you a bit sad but don’t worry, because, as the old saying goes: “There are always more solutions than problems.” Even though we can’t go outdoors, we can still do something indoors. For example,,we can go to karaoke with all our friends. Not only will this bring us closer, the singing will make us happy and relaxed!

LOL and order

Rainy days are great for tidying my bedroom. I have books, notes, paper, pens, and cushions all over the floor. My mum always says that my room gives her a headache, and she has given up on helping me tidy it! A rainy day would be a good day to stay in and be a good boy – and I only have to do it once every few months!

Use it productively ... or not

Rainy days always cause so much trouble. I hate them. It’s best just to stay home and study ... or play video games, ha ha!
