Is it? It is, im sure it it, its still January, right?
Well today has taken me by surprise. If it were a saturday, you'd see your neighbours out washing their cars and weeding the borders to allow all those new shoots to breathe and bathe in a little sunshine.
Yes thats what we have today, some sunshine, and a little wind(oh matron!).
Today, Tuesday the 25th January the first day ive been able to hang washing outside this year.
I had to, i couldn't bear to stuff things into the tumble dryer and live with the guilt when there is a gentle breeze and a few rays smiling down on us.
I hope you have a day soon wherever you are which gives you this simple satisfying pleasure, i know down here we dont have it as tough as some of you who read my blog up north!
The girls even rediscovered this at the weekend, their beloved trampoline; sunbathing deck, stage, Olympic bouncing championship venue etc. And im hoping that we can all start to get out there more and more from now on as i feel so sad to look out at my garden all lifeless at the moment.
This field of fodder beet has now all been harvested, its looking a bit barren!
Ive opened all the windows in the house to have a good air, washed our bedding, as well as the clothes Mr P wore shooting yesterday....spring is just around the corner, and i picture myself stood here with my apron and flip flops on hanging out washing with my new baby sleeping peacefully in a pram parked beside me ....ah, i cant wait.
Look how sad my little apple tree is looking?? Ive not even been out there to clear the leaves because off the bump in the last few months. I'll add them to the 'to do' list.
Oh, and now the weather is looking 'up', so is the workload, Mr P just popped in for a flask of coffee as he's going out ploughing...and so it begins...
