March …

Welcome March!
Oh I have longed for it, February has been really been a test of my strength, mentally and physically.  As it seems to every year and yet it still takes me by surprise at how rubbish this month truly is. As a family we have been struck down by lingering colds, bugs, ear infections and the more debilitating winter blues.  Money is tight (as always) so even when times are tough we can’t ‘treat’ ourselves to a day out or some new clothes (this is me wishing, I’d love some new threads!).  Ho hum…
But as of today… I am shrugging off this veil of crapness and with my head held high I welcome Spring in my heart.  I am thinking thoughts tinged with yellow, daffodils are paving my way through the greyness and hope for brighter times ahead.  
March you better be a good one!  It has a lot to live up to!
I’d just like to thank the lovely friends who have joined me in celebrating flowers and plants and their ability to cheer up the most rubbish of days.  I will talk more on these next Wednesday.  There is still time to join in as I am making this a weekly link up.  For some inspiration do hop around the blogs linked in my previous post.  Such pretty plants and flowers!
Good news!  I am adding the finishing touches to my March newsletter, this should be winging it’s way to you in the next few days.  If you’d like to sign up for one, please fill in the form over there on the right.
And finally my March Love List is up… enjoy!
Have an awesome weekend, dear friends.
We are birthday partying, eating this, and listening to this a lot (Charlie is learning to play this tune in his guitar lessons).
