Spring forward: Fall Back
Yes, we put our clocks on an hour early this morning and supposedly lost an hour’s sleep. Did I remember to spring forward? Of course, I did. I set the clock on the central heating an hour forward, did my watch and my alarm clock. I didn’t sleep very well and ignored the alarm on my phone … (more…)
It’s Sunday morning and so this must be my Sunday ramble when I let you into a more mysterious area of my mind and ramble on. What am I thinking about this week? The daffodil should give you a clue… (more…)
I can’t wait for spring, last year it kept on raining all through winter. We did have a little snow in January but it was quite a mild winter. We are just into the new year and many pundits are trying to forecast what 2016 will bring. I might as well have a go at it as well! (more…)
Colours do affect our moods and we associate different colours with different things. White is associated with purity, red is associated with excitement and black is seen as morbid and depressing. Bright colours are associated with fun and are favoured by children, yellow in particular. (more…)

It’s nearly Easter and we have more snow! It was the first day of Spring on Wednesday and just as you thought it was safe, the snow came again.

Today’s picture is of Moorcroft Wood. It’s an interesting place to walk around. In the middle of the wood is a pool where people go fishing. The canal borders the woodland on two sides as well. The pool filled up with water when the snow melted and so you can take quite interesting photographs.
