The clocks are turning back, the daffodils are out, the days are longer and nights are a little warmer.
Bird song wakes me up and puts me in a good mood. The next phase of the pathway out of the lockdown will be underway, edging the nation closer to having no restrictions Easter brings the newness of life, family time and good food and chocolate.
The past year has seen lots of lows and the feeling of spring, the vaccination roll out, will hopefully give people a feeling of hope that things will get better.
So, even though I will be a little tired from the hour less of sleep, I am hopeful that spring will bring the renewness of freedom, restrictions and spending time with family and friends.
