I is for Iridescence

It had been raining all day, clouds so thick the sky was almost black. The chill wind seemed to creep through invisible gaps around the windows. The baby had been crying all day too and she sagged with weariness as she tried in vain to soothe him. In desperation she put on wellies, lay him in the pram and ventured out. Drips thundered on the hood as she stalked irritably through the puddles. Within minutes the crying ceased and as they crossed towards the park he fell asleep. She tipped back her head and laughed, drinking in the raindrops gratefully.

  1. I like your description of the atmosphere. The sun shone here in London early, but now dark clouds have wiped away my earlier expectation of a warm day. Blog on!
