So, it’s almost Christmas. The solstice has been and gone, signalling the start of winter (in spite of what the Met Office tells us about winter starting on 1 December!), and to get through the cold season, I focus on the fact that we’re heading for spring, and the days are getting longer. With a birthday in May, spring is definitely my season, and I can’t wait for longer days and warmer weather.
Today, the weather app on my phone tells me it’s 9c outside at the moment – not that I’m venturing out to confirm that. That’s around 48f, if you don’t speak Celsius. It’s also grey, wet and windy, thanks to Storm Barbara. However, this is the UK, and I live in an area that seldom sees extremes of weather.
Wherever you are in the world, whatever you celebrate at this time of year and however you celebrate it, stay safe, have a lovely time, and I wish you all the very best for 2017.
