Definitely a bit of warmth in the sun, and the birds are singing. I feel like heading for somewhere with a small suitcase and a pack of sandwiches on the train.

When spring is sprung where do you enjoy going? ( or would if you could).

well we went to to the memory clinic today for OH 3 months review. He has been given a prescription for 3 months more meds. Was pleasantly surprised when we got back in the car to go home that the outside temperature was 10c

we are in Kent and hope we can escape hosepipe bans &&&&& big rain fulls this year cos really cant cope with what we can and cant do with regard to water & how we use it. Have a fishpond & a 50 plus year old tortoise who need looking after

Fantastic day here in S Wales today. Was down at a seaside resort (Porthcawl) and it was quite packed with day visitors.

But Derek on the weather was warning of a cold week next week and wintery showers.

By the way, we don't have hosepipe bans. We have got so much of the stuff that we develop webbed feet. :-) :-)

Left house first time in a week, sun shining. Yes Rose would like a short break to Cornwall, and as Footie says a bit of graveyard searching.

Carol :-D
