Winter, that is.
A château in the Loire Valley last summer. And sunshine.
We have freezing fog in Derbyshire this morning.
So here we are, it’s the 18th March, the equinox is just around the corner, a quarter of the year is nearly gone and I can barely count on two hands the number of sunny days we have had so far this year.
Actually, we have probably had more than that but when I am at work it could be doing anything outside. It’s usually sunny when I’m at work and horrible on my days off. That has been the pattern so far this year and this is one of the main reasons why I am looking forward so much to retiring……….I just need some sunshine !! Or at least not to have to go to work on the rare occasions when the sun is shining.
The forecast for the next few days is grim. Very cold and more of the dreaded white stuff. Nick is currently in India where it is 38°C and sunny (of course, what else would it be).
My theory is that this is why time flies. During the first two months of the year I feel as if my life is on hold, just enduring the dark nights and the bad weather. March is nearly always a huge disappointment and life remains on hold until Easter.
Still, I have only 11 days before our next trip to France and only 11 weeks left to work. If you count the holidays and the fact that I only work three days per week (the sunny ones), that’s only 24 more days to be spent at work. 23½ by tomorrow lunchtime. Not that I’m counting !!
Have a good week !!
