Spring is well and truly on its way!
There's a marked improvement in the weather (well, it's cold but there's no snow), the daffodils are creeping into the florists' shops, and I even saw a scattering of snowdrops the other day.
People seem happier, too... there are more smiles around town, that's for sure, and less grimaces- faces screwed up against the cold, or partially covered with scarves.
We're enjoying more daylight; who doesn't love leaving work in the evening and realising it's still light? That will improve again soon when the clocks go forward (Sunday 28th March 2010) marking the official start of British Summer Time. We may be losing an hour's sleep for one night, but with extra daylight in the evenings and a long summer ahead, there’s plenty to look forward to after the clocks change.
It's been a tough winter and a long one, but things are turning warmer, brighter and sunnier- here's to a wonderful Spring season for the Family.
