Seasonal Optimism

I don’t understand how it manages to happen so quickly after Christmas, but each January before the cold snap comes I start thinking about spring, summer and generally sunny and warm things. I seem to do this all year round, one seasonal event ends and I am on to the next – I like to think it gives off a positive and optimistic vibe but I suspect my nearest and dearest would rather I enjoyed the seasonal “moment” a little longer!

As we have been having little glimpses of sunshine I am starting to peek out in to the garden a little more, beautiful, but pretty neglected through the winter and having little day dreams about picnics and BBQ’s, sun-downers and camping trips (some of which actually happen, a few never do – ie. camping)

Here is the view I get going through our door –

Snuck a peek in to the garden yesterday – not been out there in a while.. Need to get #dorset #garden #tuesday

And when the sun is shining like that I just get a little optimistic about it all. My darling friend gave me the most enormous bunch of flowers yesterday which have filled the house in various vases and vintage jugs and that is helping very much – there is something so fresh and clean about having flowers in the house, I love it.


I am battling with an incredibly slow laptop today, I think it needs some TLC -typically on the afternoon when I have loads to type about it is just so frustrating!! So I will have to save the more interesting stuff for tomorrow after I have given this damn machine a bit of attention. Please excuse any spelling mistakes or shocking punctuation – typing a word is taking ages!

Just before I go I wanted to share this picture – the view from our bedroom window, I love our little corner of the world.
