    I alway try to clean my house from top to toe but I dont always get very far as I have to tune in to QVC .As you can imagine I am soooo easily distracted,or should I say any excuse not to do housework will do.Keep up the great work you all do.

    In the spring my ideas are about starting to grow sunflowers and friut and vegtables.I have 2 small children and they loved watching as the seeds grew.You can grow lots of herbs too you dont even need a garden we started with basil, chives and parsley. We also grew potatoes from tubs and pots so no garden required.
    I love watching richard jackson as he is so entusiastic and gives lots of tips

    In March i’m always busy deep-cleaning and power-washing out door runs in my cattery getting ready for Easter and a another busy summer(fingers crossed)
    I also love the lighter mornings and evenings and the lovely spring flowers and i seem to have more enery in the spring so my
    four yorkshire terrier’s get lots and lots of walks.
    Spring time you can start to feel more warmth in the sun and that feeling is just wonderful!!

    In spring my thoughts turn to…no more S A D days…lots of sunshine (hopefully), longer days, shorter nights and happy people…bliss!

    Hi Debs
    Spring for me means hope for warmer weather. 26th March is my parents anniversary so always a time to celebrate . This year it is their 51st anniversary. Last year we were over in Sydney for it and celebrated with having lunch up the centre point tower with 360 degree views —Magical.
    It also means longer days so when I leave work after a night shift it means I no longer feel like a badger going to work in the dark and going home in the dark!!
    Love to you and the Pogs

    Spring isn’t my favourite season; I will always love Autumn more. However, it is the one I look forward to the most. I know that it has been described as “Oh treacherous Spring” but I like to think it is the time for eternal hope. My Mum’s birthday was St Patrick’s Day, with my Parents’ wedding anniversary following three days later, so celebrations at this time of the year have always been a big part of my Family’s calendar. The light changes, the dry twigs of Winter swell with the promise of blossom and there is a different, fresher, fragrance in the air. I don’t like January and February, so this is the start of my NEW YEAR.

    Helen – what a lovely time this is with your little ones! I remember those days… Mine are now 24 and 21 but my youngest neices all seeing it all anew – just 4 and nearly 2 – nice when brother Glenn brings them over. (And nice when they’ve been over a while, it’s been lovely to see them, had a great time and then….they leave again! lol!!)

    Michelle – I can imagine your cattery keeps you really busy in the summer too!

    Annette – Anita – I absolutely looooove the warmer days and lighter nights – hope they take up that suggestion of keeping clocks forward permanently!

    Cheryl – say happy 51st to your parents. Trip last year sounds fabulous – I’ve been to lunch in the post office tower but pales by comparison I’m sure! lol

    Joanna – how evocative your comment is! Yes ‘eternal hope’ sums it up for me too – and just this morning I opened the window and thought exactly that about the freshness in the air – wonderful fragrances here in the Surrey countryside. Except when they bring the muck to the field next door of course! lol

    Hi Debbie
    This march means a lot to me as I was awaiting an operation on my very sore foot and I;ve just had it done! WHOOPEE! Now I can get on with my life again as this has blighted it.I have 2 5month old puppies and when I am healed they will be getting walked off their feet.I also love all the spring flowers about at the moment and of course the wee lambs in the fields.Take Care Debbie x

    Hi Debbie
    I love the fresh misty spring mornings, with the promise of a beautiful day it reminds me of times gone by walking the children to school through the park lunch boxes, bags and fresh clean air.
    Also the daffodils with there beautiful blocks of vibrant yellow, I always clean my windows from top to bottom bringing the freshness in and filling the house with yellow blooms. The longer evenings
    soon to be bring happy times to be in the garden pottering, I love that clean fresh smell of a sharp spring evening which promises the warmth of summer still to come and enjoy

    Christina – don’t they fly away??! Yes I’m looking forward to some of those balmy evenings this summer too! Glad the clocks have gone back – that’s always a bit of a milestone to me. Lighter evenings – yay!
