Sunshine!!

My word of the week is....


 Hasn't it been such a lovely week?!

Spring has most definitely sprung....There is nothing better than feeling a bit of sun on your face!!

There has still been a chill in the air but the sun has been shining and it seems to have put everyone in a great mood!!

I have gone from wearing my thick winter coat to a thinner one....I haven't wore my wooly thick jumpers all week and yesterday I wished I hadn't wore my coat on the school run I was sweating...lol....Washing has been out on the line drying and I actually saw the bottom of the washing basket earlier on in the week! That doesn't happen often....

After being cooped up indoors for what seems like an eternity or almost freezing to death every time I've gone out it’s great now being able to be able to get outside more....

The kids have started to play out in the backyard more....Ellie in her shorts convinced just because there's a bit of sun that it's summer.....She's even mentioned the paddling pool a couple of times....Not yet love! lol We've even had a trip to the park after school of course with an ice cream......

The days are getting longer....It's much lighter in the morning....I actually don't mind getting out of bed now.... Well I do but I don't feel the urge to just put the cover over my head and snuggle back down....

I love the warmer weather....It feels like winter is really over and summer is just around the corner....I love the sunshine!!

  4. A lovely positive word! I've had the washing on the line a few times as well, which is great since the tumble drier has just died! I hope this is the beginning of a wonderful Spring and Summer.

  10. I don't really consider myself a summer person, but I do love it when the first sunshine of spring is upon us and the flowers begin to bloom. And even I have to admit, sunshine puts a smile on your face :)

  20. It sounds beautiful! It's too bad that here in Dubai, we jump straight from winter to summer, so it's already quite hot.

  21. Your week sounds very suitable to mine and yes I have regretted wearing a coat a few times this week.
