hello spring – hope you all have signs of the new season where you are
in the UK the first day of spring arrived in spectacular fashion with a solar eclipse – over 90% up here. I did my research and went out with 2 pieces of card, with a pinhole in one. I admit I was sceptical while reading all the instructions but when I held up the 2 cards I could see a small crescent shape which changed as the moon moved in front of the sun. There was passing cloud which actually allowed for some photos – I know it looks like a crescent moon but that was the sun. Strange light because it was dark but the sun was still high.
Then the weekend proper was full of watching rugby – 3 nail biting games with lots of scoring and the champions only determined at the final whistle – my favourite of the 3 contenders won so I was happy.
I was caught up with the feeling of spring, and my feet feeling too hot in my boots – so I performed my seasonal unpacking of the warmer weather clothes a week early and put away a few of my warmest clothes. Then I embarked on the frustrating exercise of looking for some new items of clothing on-line. Frustrating because I clothes shop with my fingers and no-one has invented an ability to feel photos yet. And while the inventors are at it can we please have an app whereby I have my body scanned and then I can ‘try-on’ items online to see how they will look. I didn’t see anything that made me hit the ‘buy now’ button so am watching the ‘new in’ sections.
As an antidote to all that screen time and frustration I crocheted a cute new friend
