The Skies are Becoming Lighter!



At five this evening I noticed the clouds outside were still light gray.  This was because the days are getting longer and soon Spring will Spring into view and once Spring has Sprung life will be better, and cheaper, than it is now!  Soon this horrible white stuff that still lies in heaps around us will melt, allowing the media to complain about floods everywhere.  Once gone it will not return, at least not like this, and life will once again be beautiful, apart from all the reasons to grump of course!  No more gathering around a candle wishing I could afford a box of matches.  No more wearing woolen gloves with the fingers cut out, in bed, and walking the streets to keep warm as it is colder inside than out!  Daffodils are already sprouting, Easter eggs are lining the shelves of supermarkets waiting for Valentines Day to pass, and offers of holidays in the sun are flooding the spam markets.  The days are getting longer, the geese are getting fat, let's put a £20 note into my old hat!


Well that was  worth a try.........

Yes, and it means that soon I will be able to manage without putting an expensive candle behind the computer screen to illuminate it - every little helps, as they say.

It snowed with us today. Again. Sigh.

An unusually optimistic post, Mr H. Do you want the number for NHS24?

Funny for you the day presages warmer weather and brighter days just around the corner. For me it was the first day of sleet falling on my car as I drove home from work! No worries, it won't get cold enough to freeze. But today was the first day of REAL winter that we've had.

Jenny, That's how it is Jenny....

A, Oh woman that is so sad.

Mike, Yes please.

RDG, I suspect your winter will be over by now!

I hope it's not your hat with the big hole in the crown.
