Can it Finally Be Spring?

This winter has been long and hard (by UK standards, anyway). Snow, snow, ice, cold... it's almost like Canada all over again! And if there's one thing I'm not so fond of, it's snow and cold. I don't know what it is, but I just can't stand piling on all that winter gear and hoping - praying - you'll be able to stop shivering at some point.

But those days are behind me now, because spring has finally sprung in London. The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, the trees are coming out... people are even BBQing!

This summer is supposed to be the hottest summer on record (again - they say that every year!). But maybe, just maybe, it might be true!

Fingers crossed!

I hope you're right, because I heard that it's supposed to be a cold, wet summer in Ireland. Regardless, today was a beautiful day here and tomorrow should be the same! :)

Spring sprung here too. All of our trees are full of flowers and the air smells fresher.

I'm not a big fan of bundling and trudging through snow either.

Gah, it's confusing! Here in Wales the weather is always a gamble. It's nice to see the sun again though :)
