I’d had 5pm in my diary for a couple of week now. Id’ spotted that sunset was at 17:00 my time today. This means that from now on, I’m in with a shout of catching some actual sunlight – after work. As I sat in the last meeting of the day from 16:30 onwards, in a room with big old windows I watched as rays of actual sun hit the scenery around me. It made me feel rather happy that we have most defiantly ‘come out the other side’ of it.
We’ve got snow drops in the garden – the first new growth I’d noticed this year and a couple of people have mentioned that they’ve seen buds on the trees. Crocuses, next, then daffodils (my favourite). I don’t think we’ve seen the last sting of winter yet, but there’s light, at the end of the tunnel.
