Welcome back to Whatever the Weather. What a rainy start to the week. During the slight bit of sunshine we had yesterday, we were lucky enough to go foraging along the coast path with Evie. It was so interesting and really tasty! I can’t wait to see what you’ve all been up to.


Whatever the Weather: We’re out there together

If you’re new to Whatever the Weather, I co-host this linky with the lovely Jenny over at Monkey and Mouse. This linky is the place to share your outdoor family fun posts. Whether they’re old or new, we want to read them!

This month we’re holding a competition for all #Whatevertheweather linkers. Squidkids are giving away two of their incredible colour changing umbrellas to two of you lovely linkers! Squidkids specialise in jackets, wellies, umbrellas and bags that change colour when they get wet. How cool is that? As you know Jenny and I always feature our favourite posts from the week before right here. Each week in September our two favourite posts will be added into the competition to win a Squidkids umbrella. At the end of the month we will choose the top two posts who will win a Squidkids umbrella each. Good luck!


This week my favourite was ‘toddlers day out to Exmoor Zoo in North Devon‘ by Hello Archie. Even though it was drizzly and a really small zoo it looks like such a great day out. I want to feed a wallaby!

Jenny’s favourite was beach adventures at Minnis Bay by Mummy’s Little Blog. I also love this post. It’s so summery and is the perfect post to read when you’re not quite ready for autumn.
