There's Something About Spring

LifeMarylin18 Comments

I don't know about you, but here we've had the most gorgeous sun and blue skies for the last 5-6 days now, and it's truly glorious!

After a really horrible winter, with far too much snow and horrendous ice, it's a very welcome and long overdue change.

I find it so much easier to get out of bed when it's light out.

There's a spring in my step, it doesn't feel like an effort to get everyone up and ready and out the door for school and nursery anymore.

I'm not filled with dread when I have to go out in the biting cold.

Don't get me wrong, it *is* still cold, but not as bad as it has been.

This afternoon when we all got back from the school run, we actually went into the garden and kicked a football around!

ALL of us.


Max is wanting to join in with us these days.

He's kicking the ball, and will happily run over the grass now to get the ball (last summer he point blank *refused* to go on the grass, choosing to stay on the deck instead!)!

Zack of course is in his element being outside, with his mum, and a football.

We didn't even need coats on!!

I know it coincides with the melatonin and getting more sleep, but I'm sure that part of the reason I'm so cheery and full of energy these days is also to do with the sun being out, and it staying! light! till at least 6.30pm!

I'm actually looking forward to the clocks changing this spring. MORE light! Even though it means I'll have an hour less on my birthday. Technically.

I don't care!

It's sunny outside, and forecast to stay that way till at least the beginning of next week.

My boys are doing well at school and nursery, and I'm finding my feet with getting on top of the housework, and planning what needs done in the garden.

Spring is definitely my favourite season.

I've been pining for the light mornings and evenings since they went away last November.

You can be damn sure I'll be making the most of it now we have it back!
