This time of year always feels like a push. Whether that’s the sun trying to force its way through the grey blanket overhead, the Daffodils pushing up through the mud, or even if it’s just the desperation to shed the layers and slip into something a little more summery 🙂 Yeah, I’m gutted we haven’t seen snow – AGAIN – (we seemed to be short-changed every winter on that one…), but I’m so ready for Spring!
✿ Light! It’s so dark and gloomy all day long at the moment, I’m craving those lighter, longer days and evenings.
✿ Bare legs. I’m not a huge fan of tights it has to be said (prickly bum, anyone?). I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to jumpers and scarves yet, but tights can do one.
✿ Tea and Cake and outside. Being able to sit outside and eat and drink in the sun. It’s such a fine thing.
✿ Our garden to be full of flowers again. We planted so many bulbs at the end of summer – daffodils, hyacinths, tulips – and now I can’t wait to see them bloom.
✿ Burnt Barbecue Sausages. I’ll have mine on the dark and crispy side, please thanks (even though a recent study showed that burnt things probably cause the Big C… *sigh* What doesn’t?). Probably more of a summer thing I know, but you never know when you’re going to get the good weather and sometimes Spring surprises everyone.
✿ Somewhere New. We’re off on a short break to the New Forest in a few weeks, and I can’t wait to explore a new place 🙂 (If you’ve got any recommendations I’m all ears!)
What Spring things are you excited for?
