We've had some lovely sunny days this week - it was so nice to feel a little warmth in the air.
Hey-hey, I think Spring is on it's way. This week I spotted the first daffodils and the first spring lamb.
On the school run on Thursday afternoon I noticed that the temperature gauge in the car had risen to 13˚. I drove past a guy fixing a dry stone wall with his top off - I'm not sure if it was that warm! The chap in the petrol station said how much cheerier customers have been this week. A little sunshine goes a long way to brightening everyones mood.
We've had a busy, busy week. Son2 had his very first driving lesson on Thursday - he was quite anxious about it but thoroughly enjoyed it and is now looking forward to his next one (1 a week at £33 a pop - ahh!). We took MissG up to Penrith on Tuesday and Thursday to attend two 6th form Open Evenings - she now needs to decide which subjects to study at A'level. Plus all the usual stuff, work-work, house-work, home-work, grocery shopping, school-runs etc. Oh yes, and I sneaked in a couple of hours in the garden centre cafe with my friend Helen - tea and cake and a good chat - just what I needed.
My 'happy moments' this week include -
1. Teaching myself to crochet! At long last.
2. Receiving my utility bills and 'whooping' with relief to find that both my gas and electricity bills are in credit! I have had the central heating on much more than usual because I've been working from home. I know it's not exactly news worthy but it did put a smile on my face!
3. Buying a pair of burgundy Converse All Stars.
4. A little trip to Penrith Crafts shop for a few little goodies.
