The First Day of Spring?


Today is supposed to be the First Day of Spring but it still fells like Winter!  Our snow has all gone as it was quite “wet” so the bit of sun we saw yesterday and it all melted but that has not meant that Spring has arrived as it is still flipping cold!  I think this quote from Charles Dickens says it all :

“It was one of those March Days when the Sun shines hot and the wind blows cold.  When it is Summer in the light and Winter in the shade!”

This definitely describes the weather we are having at the moment and I can’t even say I am looking forward to April as I hate the rain showers we get for no apparent reason when you can get soaked and the next minute the sun is out and it is quite warm! 


Easter is coming up fast and I think because it is quite early, end of March/beginning of April, it has confused me.  Plus we are normally away and we are not this year so another difference.  Youngest finishes next Tuesday from college and obviously we have Good Friday off as a holiday and Easter Monday too.  I am planning, if the weather is good, to either empty the garage and our room off and get rid of anything we don’t use, need or have duplicates of.  If the weather is not good then the idea is to empty the attic (!) and do the same for that.  We also have some rooms to paint but that may be a bit ambitious after my Op and may have to wait for later in the year!!!

Speaking of Ops, I am doing okay but still very tired by the end of the day.  I have been busy doing the exercises and making sure I am walking “properly”.  I did not get up early today as I was so tired from yesterday when I spent all day at my desk.  Tomorrow I have some more work for the end of the month to get done so will probably get up early then.

I hope you are all having a Thrilling Tuesday.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Owen is too cute! Will spring ever arrive? We’re expecting snow all day long tomorrow. Oh joy. Mom told me to say that, Miss Susie. I can’t wait for the flakes to fall☺

    We have a storm system moving in tonight…to continue all week! It will bring snow and rain. I still have a wee bit of snow on the grass from the last storm!! 10″ of white stuff was wonderful, but I’m ready for summer!!! Owen is adorable and I think you need to spend a bit more time in the prone position…maybe napping with him???! No, my dear, the attic, garage and all other crazy cleaning ideas you have need to wait. You don’t want to mess up the surgery and have to do it all over again, do you???
