There are a few reasons to be cheerful this week (I have to say I’m loving the positive vibe joining up with this linky is giving my blog) here are my top 3
Daylight Saving Time
Our clocks went forward last Sunday so now it’s light until 7.30pm, admittedly it makes the mornings gloomy but it means the days of breakfast on the deck and barbecued dinners are getting closer, Yay!
All the beautiful little birds than skedaddle for the winter are starting to return. The bird feeder is now full of the poor little soles trying to get a meal in while waiting for the plants and trees to do their thing and start producing food. A little flash of colour gets me running to the back of the house to see what’s returned. While we are still waiting for the ground to thaw and the leaves to return the colourful birds are a welcome sight.
Trip to the Zoo
The boys are off from school as it’s March break so we had a lovely few hours at the Zoo yesterday. They are growing up so quickly now I know their days of hanging out with mum are numbered so I’ll enjoy them while I can. It was a brief visit because it was cold and kept snowing but I loved every minute. We always had membership to Colchester Zoo when we were in England so it’s a thing I wanted to continue when we emigrated. I enjoy walking around the zoo in all weathers and having membership means you can pop in for an hour or so without the need to ‘get your money’s worth’.
Eldest son, the artistic one (maybe I should start calling him that ;-)) got some great shots with his camera and
I’m looking forward to taking my sister, her hubbie and my niece and nephew there when they come to visit us in a couple of weeks because I’m sure they will enjoy it and get a kick out of seeing the animals they don’t normally get a chance to see.
