It certainly feels as though the spring has been a long time in coming this year. I have heard countless people remark that the winter seems to have dragged and dragged, so when we awoke recently to blue skies and sunshine we were determined to make the most of it.
Since we moved we haven’t really had the chance to explore our local area so a warm day was the perfect opportunity to do just that.
I know I have said it countless times and I’m sure I will say it more in the future but there is something so revitalising about enjoying the sunshine. Whether it’s the simple pleasure of listening to the giggles and squeals of the kids playing in the garden or donning the wellies and heading out on an adventure, any chance to soak up the sun’s blissful rays can be a joy.
And then that feeling, come the end of the day when faces are a little sticky, skin is sun-warmed (or in my case…sunburnt) and you have this exhaustion from being outdoors all day but it’s a satisfying sensation rather than a worn out one, do you know what I mean?
Of course, typically, the rain wasn’t far away but I’m glad that we decided to make the most out of the warm day when it appeared. At this time of year those days are few and far between in the UK!
