    I know we're not.
    And I'm not wishing my life away.
    But I'm looking forward to the better weather.
    It seems to have been grey here for weeks. . .

    I don't like the spring. Bluddy gulls start to build their nests and get all squawky again. It's relatively quiet here from about September to February..

    I had two weeks of Summer the previous two weeks and I really thought it would bother me coming back to the cold and lack of light but not really noticed the cold much at all

    Far as I'm concerned we're nearly halfway through.

    I have bulbs sprouting but it was the same last year...then it snowed
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    We have snowdrops in flower, the diffs are pushing through and its still pretty light at 4.30pm and temps are still in double figures so things are good

    However we have snow forecast for next week
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I was looking at the wild primroses that grow at the base of the hedges here.
    They're looking like they're getting ready to flower.
    They've been getting earlier over the last few years.
    A bit behind this year.

    We usually spend up to 2k on greenhouse heating, so the sooner spring comes the better. Plus it'll be a lot easier to work.
    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.
