I am very excited.
Why is this, you may well ask.
Well, allow me to cure your curiosity.
Something has happened to the weather. Minimal changes at first. Now definitely more noticeable.
Twice a year the seasons ignite my passion - the first signs of Spring and the Christmas countdown. Both have the ability to leave me grinning like a loony.
Dear readers, it is with enormous pleasure I have noticed Spring has finally arrived. My house is alive with yellow daffodils, my garden is sprinkled with lavender blooms. The clocks went back last night, and we've missed an hours sleep - for much happiness you have to make a little sacrifice.
But hey, I no longer lay in these days, so I'm typing away in bed whilst husband and son snore away. After this post I'll water my lavender blooms and I may even eat my cereal in the garden. Get me! Special K alfresco style! (Maybe with cardigan or demim jacket, let's not get too carried away, this is England after all.)
Before I fill this blog with colours and Easter, let's remember grayer and colder times. You served your purpose darker weather, now it is time to hold our heads higher and wear our clothes lighter.
So long winter, thanks for Christmas, your time is officially over, make way for Spring please.
Winter meant inside activities, such as Sea Life. Tommy loved the fishes.
A brisk walk along Southend beach. Before chips and hot chocolate.
We also wrapped up warm for father-in-law's birthday, at the races. Tommy loved watching the horses with his cousin.
The terrible twosome.
Lost in thought. Probably fie engines and chocolate.
