I may be cosied up with a running nose, but salvation arrives in the knowledge that today – 20th March – is the official first day of spring (and another officially important day. You know who you are!) It may furthermore be rainy and dull outside my window, but I am nonetheless filled with joy at the prospect of the coming season – this glorious season of sunset walks, burgeoning flowerbeds, picnics just because, sandals, bare ankled bike rides and dappled light. I am looking forward to working hard and playing hard (the latter to denote something along the lines of: riding my bike to an appropriate green space, eating strawberries, lying in the sun and rhapsodising on my favourite season until dusk.)
Happy first day of spring!
