I don’t think there is a more perfect word for this week, despite a few lingering chilly mornings there have been signs of Spring everywhere. The clocks went forward on Sunday leaving us with lighter evenings and each morning I’ve listened to the dawn chorus. The blossom trees are in full bloom and we’ve been treated to some amazing blue skies.
Spring along with Autumn is my favourite season and I think that’s down to the changes in nature that are so easily recognisable. The colours and scents this time of year are a real treat for the senses.
Along with Spring comes Easter much to the kids excitement. I’ve been shopping this week to stock up on chocolate eggs, Easter gifts and goodies for an egg hunt. On Monday I went to a local church with Jake’s class where the kids listened to the Easter story before making a card and decorating some ginger biscuit bunnies and chicks. They had such a lovely time, although they found it hard not to munch their biscuits before we returned to school.
On the school run the kids have been having fun spotting different coloured blossoms, ducks, squirrels and daffodils. I love how much they notice the world around them.
Spring has also brought with it an extra burst of motivation for me too. I’ve been busy this week cleaning, sorting and getting things done that I’ve been putting off. The brighter days always seem to put an extra spring in my step. I’ve also been busy writing, some of the posts have had a Spring theme like our bucket list and one about sorting out your finances.
I’m hoping those inevitable April showers will hold off a little longer and it’s a no for the snow that some areas have seen this week. There are lots of things to do in the garden and I’m hoping this weekend will be the time to do it.
I’m linking up with Anne from Raisie Bay for Word of the Week.
