For the twelve days of Christmas I am looking back over the twelve months of 2012.
ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS - MARCH
The countryside was beginning to look distinctly greener and spring-like.
In early March we went on a coach trip to London, had a lovely lunch and went to see a fabulous show. There and back again in the day.
On the 11th March it was as warm as it often gets on a good summer’s day in Derbyshire. We made the most of it and had lunch outdoors on the patio.
I made the first batch of decent, edible scones I have ever made in my life and we ate them outside in the sunshine when Nick arrived home from work.
The weather was so good for most of March that it didn’t seem real and certainly didn’t seem right. We enjoyed it but I remember thinking to myself……we’ll be paying for this later !!
