I have decided that spring is my least favorite month! Yes I love the blossom and all the spring flowers but that is about it. At least in Winter we know it will be cold so we can enjoy being cozy indoors with pleasant activities such as cooking and sewing.

Autumn is my favorite season as the weather is generally favorable and it is pleasant to be out and about. It seems a peaceful time of year with children back at school and preparation for the winter ahead.

Summer is lovely too as with light evenings I can sit out in the garden to eat dinner and linger afterwards. Even if we get a poor summer it is not usually as cold as spring. I don't know why but I always feel colder in spring than in winter.

I was talking to a friend who lives in the North of the country and she agreed that it is probably because we expect the weather to improve so we can get out in the garden etc but although we get the odd few "Spring" days mainly it is disappointing.

Most Easters I can remember as being cold and wet and actually in the 70's when DD was little we had heavy snow and that was in the South of the UK.

So today has been an ordinary day of shopping, housework, cooking and walking with DD and her dogs in the rain and the mud. It was still good to get out though and see the blossom. Highlight of the day was visiting DS, DDil and DGD who is just 6 months old and is happy whatever the weather.

 Now happily snuggled up in the warm with the radio on and about to finish my library book.


  1. Those rare days when it feels as though spring has arrived are wonderful - but yes, mostly we are doomed to disappointment. The mobile library is due this afternoon, I'm looking forward to walking home with a fresh pile of books.

  2. I had a similar thought and walked up to our library coming back with 3 books and an map. So will be happy indoors. Hope you got your books too.
