A Spring In Your Step
It was such a beautiful day here in Sussex yesterday - hooray! My daughter seems to be getting better, it's just her hearing that's still not quite as it should be but hopefully over the next few days that should improve too.
With the sun shining and it being the first day of the holidays and, more importantly, my youngest being able to get out and about again I took the girls to a farm for the day. It was gorgeous! Spring is so perfect for farm visits and we had a great time. You can smell the sense of optimism in the air on a Spring day. I love Summer, but sometimes it can feel a bit too stagnant, whereas Spring is so exciting and promises so much.
The best part of the day for me was watching my daughter on the swings - for the first time in about ten days she laughed. A really good, hearty laugh!
Perhaps it is because the weather in this country is so temperamental that we feel that the minute the sun shines we need to be outside, but it is such a tonic (a very old-fashioned word I know, but I can't think of a better one!). When we got home the girls stayed in the garden until late and the cats were going bonkers in the trees (must have been something to do with the full moon). Did anyone see the moon last night ? It was beautiful. A perfect day.
I LOVE Spring.
