Well, David is back home for his Easter Break before heading back to uni and the last term of the year. Exams and all the rest. A couple of weeks at home is great for his mother, of course. I have Stuff which needs doing. Heavy stuff. He has a list. Bless him, he walked in the door and started casting his eye about checking up on what needed doing. I asked him what he was doing, and he told me it has been months since he was in his protector mode, and he wanted to make sure he knew what was needed. Sigh. I must have done something right along the way raising him. He is a gem.
It has been a stunning spring day today, and the tulips are about to bloom. I can't wait to see the colours. Particularly as I seem to have forgotten which ones I chose! My mind chooses to forget details like this. Highly irritating and completely without my permission.
I left the Easter decorations up so that he could see them, but tomorrow they will come down. Spring can stay (the decorations) but the Easter stuff needs to be put away, much though I love it all. Happy colours. Gentle colours. Colours to make me smile - the pinks, yellow, blues and greens.
I have been patrolling the garden, checking for the horrible lily beetle, and watching to see when the potatoes will start growing. Not to mention all the seedlings in the greenhouse. Patience is not one of my gifts.
And the new week brings with it a funeral as well. Wednesday. It will be a difficult day for my friend and her family. But they will not be alone.
I hope everyone is having a great spring weekend, and that the sun is shining wherever you are! Now I need to go and cook something.....
