Dear Mr Weather Man,
You seem to be having some difficulties remembering what weather should go with what season this year. May I just remind you that it is now April. APRIL. That is, the fourth month of the year. It is now time, in fact we are somewhat late already, for SPRING!!!
Remember that season? The one between Winter and Summer? The one where we get to stop wearing tights and gloves and hats and looking like a rather weathered Michelin man, and start thinking about hunting out the sandals and floaty clothes ready for Summer?
I mean, I love Winter, I really do. I love wrapping up warm, I own far too many scarves and gloves, and to be honest lounging about in cosy pyjamas wrapped up in blankets is one of my favourite past times, but the novelty wore off sometime back in January and it’s now April. APRIL!!
Come on! It’s time for little lambs to be frolicking in the fields, doing that weird and wonderful springy jumpy thing they do. It’s time for little chicks to be born, and for daffodils and crocuses to sprout up with no danger of being lost in another snow flurry.
I want to be able to take my child out for a walk without having to have the ‘please wear a hat or your head may fall off’ debate, and actually be able to go to the park and play on the swings without him screaming because he’s so cold. I want to be able to sit outside, and maybe actually restore some normality to our rather neglected and weather beaten garden.
We’re done with Winter now. We had lots of fun in the snow, and it was lovely to have it around for a bit but I think I speak for everyone when I say that we could really do with a bit or sunshine now.
Is it too much to ask? I think not.
a very cold Mummy xx
P.S. Are you kidding me? As I’ve been typing this, it’s actually started snowing outside. Again!
