When winter is almost done

After ALL the snow we were so grateful to be back to normal this week. Glorious grey tarmac and temperatures above freezing have never felt so good. At 7 degrees, I felt like spring was well and truly here and I was almost about to go wild with short sleeves and everything. We pretty much dove into the car and escaped to the city for a change of scenery and some nice food. Winter was over.

So I was a bit speechless when it decided to absolutely chuck it down with snow, again, mid week and cause absolute chaise, again, on the motorways. It took me over two hours to do a 40 minute trip, only to find half the office had given up minutes into their journey and turn back to home. It was annoying, to say the least. But thankfully it all disappeared by about midday and deluded us into thinking that really is it now for winter and spring is on its way. Please let spring be on its way!

    I really hope it is all over now and yes it felt positively hot yesterday in comparison to the last few weeks. That food looks delicious.

    Hi Tas, your photo has reminded me I still have to get up and cook the rice! And dinner isn’t going to look anywhere as tasty as that… Hang in there I’m sure spring is nearly with you, 7C sounds positively balmy (yeah, right?), that is a temperature that makes me shiver just thinking about it!

    How odd to have had even more snow? At least you managed to get out and eat though!

    The snow was crazy!! It’s the most we’ve had all winter though and it only lasted a few hours. I do think Spring is here now as we’re getting all the rain, haha, a sure sign of Spring!
