Sunday was an absolute pleasure – beautiful sunshine swept over Sussex and we made the most of the day by heading out for a long walk with my sister Robyn and baby Milo. My neighbours dog also joined us for the occasion (good practice for when we finally get a dog *hint* *hint* Daniel). So we put on our welly boots and Milo wore shoes for the first time (how cute??? although all he wanted to do was eat them) and we headed on out into the sunshine. Good job we went with the wellingtons – it was still super muddy out there.
These few days of sunny weather have given me a huge amount of energy to get out and do things. It was amazing to feel the warm sunshine on our faces, and a gentle breeze running through our hair.
Things are behind in the fields and in the garden – this time last year we had beautiful tulips out in the garden – deep reds, vibrant purples, bright yellows and cute pinks – but the cold and wet has kept them hidden in the ground this year. The trees are only just budding so everything still looks bare and harsh rather than lush and green. However, these last few days have encouraged the tight curls of buds to unfurl to start to reveal new life.
I can’t wait for next weekend and am keeping everything crossed that it’s nice again. I have grand plans for a barbeque with some friends. But hey, this is England so you never know, it may be snowing next weekend!
Let’s hope this is the beginning of a beautiful summer.
