The other day, I heard on the radio that the Meteorologists regard the 1st of March as the start of spring.
And after a few days that were a bit touch and go, right on cue for the weekend here comes the sun.
It’s days like these that make me love working from home. I dropped Libby off at nursery where she spent a considerable amount of time playing outside in the sandpit by the sounds of it.
Lia, Pluto and I headed for the hills to make the most of the glorious sunshine. On a sunny day, I wouldn’t swap Malvern for anywhere in the world.
That’s a lie, I’d rather be in Abel Tasman in New Zealand any day of the week. But for practical reasons, hooray for Malvern.
After picking Libby up, we headed to Granddad’s house for our usual egg and soldiers for lunch. Libby was delighted to show Granddad the egg cup that she’d painted.
But the limelight for today has to go to Lia who crawled some considerable distance between rooms on her own to get to the rocking horse, which she loves.
It’s so difficult to get a photo of Lia on the rocking horse because as soon as I stop rocking her, she nods her head and bounces up and down to try to get it going again. This was the best I could do.
After their afternoon nap, I carried on working while the girls went out and played on the decking with hubby. I’m hoping to get a lot more time in the sunshine over the weekend too.
Roll on the summer.
