Surely spring ought to have sprung by now? - Helen's journal and online home
In which an old dog attempts to learn new tricks.
Surely spring ought to have sprung by now?
Where, oh where, has spring gone?

We keep being tantalised by a single warm sunny day, then it's back to the biting wind and icy rain.

I have a weird cold which started last week with the normal scratchy throat and tight chest, then almost immediately got better. I felt almost back to normal on Monday. But then yesterday came a relapse and I was barely warm enough watching TV swathed in a crochet poncho and thick blanket in a heated room. I put an extra blanket on the bed too. Basically I don't think this cold wind is helping it at all.

The weather also wasn't very helpful regarding getting everything ready for going away at the weekend, but everything is now washed and dried, though not yet ironed.

First we'll have a couple of days in Swansea, then we return on Wednesday and I set off again to go to Eastercon in London. This sounded like a demanding but doable plane when I made it some weeks ago. Now dragged down with a cold, I am not so sure, but I'll muddle through somehow.

As usual, everyone in the entire northern hemisphere has lost spring so that we can have extra heat and dryness. Summer started with a vengeance early this month. It's going to be a lo-o-o-o-ng ten months.

I had a hot water bottle in bed with fluffy bed socks, the heating was also on. It was really nice in the middle of the day, sun was shining, the air was warmish, then brrrh!
