Inside the house is full of signs of spring – flowers on every mantle piece after spring themed photoshoots and UK Mother’s Day. Spring jackets still lay around after warm weather last week. It is March after all. Spring is literally days away.
However, outside tells a different tale. A blanket of snow covers everything and it looks more like winter than any other day this season. I have reached the point in the year where I can no longer remember what it is like to be warm. Theo seems to agree as all morning he wandered around telling us all “Oh no! ‘now!” and pointing out the window. Oh no, indeed.
But no matter how ready I am for Spring and warmth, the winter is still here. But it’s on its final warning. Nine days and then I demand Spring.
