Why, what's the matter,That you have such a February face,So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?
Shakespeare - Much Ado About Nothing
Yep February - you miserable old beggar! Go far, far away!
Although its the shortest month of the year, February always seems never-ending to me. Cold, dreary, yuksome and without trying to wish precious time away, I'm more than ready to welcome the turning of the wheel of the year and Spring Equinox next month.
Everyone I have spoken to recently seems somewhat subdued; there have been severe attacks of the miseries at work, and more illnesses and long lasting viruses about than you can shake a stick at.
I for one shall be welcoming in March with open arms and look forward to more daylight hours, spring flowers, and cold, crisp Spring days. Although a little more warmth wouldn't go amiss Mama Nature if you're listening! It will soon be time to revisit Lottie 'Lotment and begin the planting process once again. How I've missed her!
I'm celebrating March the 1st by awarding myself a day off work! And what's more, I think I'll have Monday off too! So there! Yay me!
See you soon x
