Ready for Spring, Come Rain or Come Shine with Susino Umbrellas
I’m am done with winter and just want spring to stick around now. We’ve seen a few really lovely and mild days and I keep spotting colourful and beautiful flowers growing here and there. The sun has made its appearance and even allowed me to dry some washing outdoors but the weather news keeps mentioning the S word (snow!) and low temperatures…
I’ve still got my hopes up that spring is really here to stay now and winter behind us. Spring comes with milder weather and hopefully many sunny days but, here in the UK, we are sure to get quite a few rainy days too — like yesterday here in Sheffield!
The key to not let rainy days get you down is to have the right clothes and equipment for the weather. You need good wellies, a properly waterproof coat and the kids need waterproof puddlesuits or trousers too. You also need an umbrella of course! A fun or stylish one is sure to brighten up your day whether you’re an adult and or child.
My four-year-old daughter really doesn’t like being outdoors when it rains and as we walk to and from pre-school three days a week, we are pretty much guaranteed to get rained on a few times a month. She doesn’t like getting water on her face but now that she’s got her very own umbrella, she’s quite pleased and gets excited to go out in the rain.
She’s got a child’s umbrella — the Multicoloured Handprint Clear Bubble Dome Umbrella with a Red Handle (£7.99). It’s colourful and fun and has a clear dome that shelters perfectly but also allows you to see through it so that you can see where you’re going. It’s a great size for kids and the handle is easy to hold for little ones.
I’ve got a new umbrella too and it’s one that I’ve always wished for — a rainbow one! Most days I push a pushchair or a trike when we’re out so don’t have any hands free to hold an umbrella, but when it rains a lot, I tend to put my toddler in our baby carrier to keep her protected from the weather and then I do have my hands free to carry an umbrella to shelter us both.
The Rainbow Coloured Walking Umbrella (£14.99) that I have is a good size for walks in the rain — the canopy diameter is 95cm — and simply gorgeous! It features 16 different coloured panels and a black frame. It’s lightweight, comfortable to hold and carry. It’s a timeless design and it’s sure to brighten up any grey, rainy day. Just look at those beautiful and bright colours! I love it! There are lots of gorgeous ladies umbrellas to choose from.
It’s also available as an Oriental Rainbow Ornate Pagoda Style Occasion Umbrella and in as a child’s umbrella with a plastic handle (£7.99, photos above). So here’s to the end of winter — though you can see in some of my photos in this post that these umbrellas work well as shelter for snow too! — and HELLO to spring, come rain or come shine.
