Each time the seasons change, I always get excited. Each season brings new possibilities, new plans to work on ...
I'm looking forward to light mornings and travelling home from work when it's nice and bright. Light makes it easier to take photos so I can work on those. (Got this one from Unsplash). The Spring flowers - daffodils and snowdrops - are starting to appear in people's gardens and on the Village Green. There are green leaves on the trees and the birds are back. With the early morning singing.
There will be baby lambs, calves and pigs in the nearby farms. The Tubblet will be kept firmly away. After seeing loads of baby lambs on a school trip, she announced they were too cute too eat so we haven't had roast lamb since. She's not getting the bacon! Or the roast beef and Yorkshires!
Easter is coming. Rev T has been tapped for a guest post so I'll leave the religious aspect to him. Easter is hard work for him as there are services and events to organise and attend. But I'm looking forward to a four day weekend. And chocolate. Who doesn't love chocolate? (If you want some chocolate related laughs, check out "The Calendar According to Chocolate" by Dawn over at Rhyming with Wine).
Like many people, I'm hoping for good news on the international front. I can't believe this month the UK will start the process of leaving the EU and be gone in two years. (And Scotland!) My company has announced its plans to ensure it still has access to EU markets once the UK leaves. It's also assured us the changes mean no redundancies and they're still committed to the UK, with loads of plans to invest. We'll see. The proof will be in the pudding. (Politics isn't so much the elephant in the room now, it's more the escapee from the room that's currently dancing like nobody does and blocking out the light. Hopefully it'll wear itself out eventually so we can pack it off to bed for a rest).
