Spring has officially arrived

Friday, April 07, 2017


It's an understatement to say that I'm happy Spring is finally here. I'm so relieved the sun is finally showing its face and I no longer have to walk around wearing three layers and still shivering.

A couple of days ago I went into my back yard for the first time in months - it was actually warm enough to sit out for a couple of minutes and take some pictures so I brought my Instax camera out from hibernation and took some snaps of the flowers.

As I type this, it's a grey cloudy day and not at all like these photos, but I do see a tiny bit of blue trying to peek out of the clouds. There's hope yet.


On Wednesday my ma and I went to Bakewell - we had chips, wandered along the river, and visited a couple of our favourite shops. I had to return a dress to Fat Face (I know, return 😱 I was sad too) which was the reason for the whole trip, but who would turn down a drive into the Peaks and a roam around Bakewell? No-one, surely.

Before going home we sat on a bench next to the River Wye and watched some ducks trying to swim against the current. I felt properly happy, like blissfully happy. It was a tad windy but I just loved sitting by the water and looking over the other side at these beautiful gates leading from someone's garden out onto the riverbank. I couldn't think of anything more perfect. Imagine sitting on the riverbank in the middle of summer with a book and dipping your feet into the water. So idyllic it hurts.

It's been a pleasant week actually, my shifts at work haven't been as strenuous and the lighter evenings mean that the days feel longer and it feels like you can do more. British Summer Time makes me happier than nothing else.

I'm a pale gal from England so soaking up all that vitamin D in the summer does wonders for my skin, my brain, and my mood. Happiness just oozes out of me. Reminds me of this quote:

Hope you have a fab weekend. I'm working today and tomorrow, then I'm going to spend my Sunday doing a big spring clean and declutter. Very excited.
