Oh Spring, where are you?

After a mild, yet wet winter we were introduced briefly to Spring. With her came the daffodils planted three years ago and revisiting each year. With her came sunshiny weather and thoughts of picnics and flowery dresses.

But Winter was not finished with his visit. He had more in store, only this time he brought greyness and cold. I have resisited and the heater has only been on once since Spring arrived. Last week I became bored with wet and cold days. With a house bound toddler. We found lots of respite at the library, and even a morning shopping. Our long walks along the beach and trips to the playground were shelved.

I woke this morning with a sense of foreboding. The temperature was forecast for strong winds, hail, rain and a measly maximum of just 16 degrees.

Winter lived up to expectations. I relented and cuddled up on the sofa under a blanket with master x. We watched Winnie the Pooh and read books. My only reprieve were the 15 minutely calls for “I need a wee!”and our location would change to the bathroom. He is proud not to have wet his Thomas the Tank Engine jocks.

Ten minutes ago Winter let out his fury and the hail, thankfully small, was fierce.

Oh how we miss you Spring. Please come back.

*I am going to be really cross if our farmers’crops are affected adversely by this nasty weather. Glorious, above average rainfall for Winter, and already Spring to break their drought. But late hail is not good.
