Just when we thought that perhaps, spring is ready to come out, especially since we’ve seen some signs of it like daffodils on the side of the road and they are also being sold at shops too (bought a bunch actually yesterday) and over at Instagram, I’ve seen people post photos of snowdrops too.
We’ve also noticed that there’s still a bit light in the afternoon, when its supposed to be dark. For awhile, we had our hopes up. But then of course, winter made it’s presence felt this week. We may not have snow that’s been falling in other parts of the UK, what we have instead is a cold, and blustery wind. When Doc and I walk over the headland, I actually have to hold on to my wooly hat, lest it gets blown away. And at night, I listen to it howling, as if it’s angry about something and is on a maddening rage, perhaps winter is fuming because we all want it to go and it just wants to stay?
And so it is cold again. Thick socks are a must, gloves, hat, scarves, you’d be mad to go out without them, especially for our walks by the coast. Honestly winter, there’s no need to throw a fit, you still have at least another month, so just calm down and chill 😉
In other news, I received a lovely surprise in the mail today from Britain’s Next Bestseller – Ericka Waller’s new book Confessions of a Mother Inferior, so please watch out for the review here.
It looks like the cold snap is here to stay for another week, which won’t be so bad, because I have what looks like to be a funny book to keep me company. Bring it on winter! You can throw all the tantrums you want and I will just ignore you – I’ll have my head happily buried under this book. Will also pretend that my pile of books-to-read doesn’t exist (as mentioned on my previous post).
What about you?
Has it been cold on your side of the world?
If you live in a warm country like where I’m from, please be kind and don’t mention the weather 😉
