You see that photo up there, with the daffodils? That's a defiant choice in the face of all this cooooold greeeeey snooooowy weather we've been having. I know, it's so very British to talk about the weather but boy is it different from this time last year. It seems as if it will never be warm again. Oh, is that a bit dramatic? Sorry!
Talking of this time last year, in some ways it feels like a lifetime away and yet it seems like it was only yesterday. I am lucky to have a wonderful family, brilliant friends and, most of all, a fantastic daughter who all look out for me, but I will admit the smile slips a bit at times. I never took my relationship for granted but at the same time, I never thought we'd break up, so yes, I admit, it's hard. I definitely think if we had a bit of sunshine it would be easier to get out and enjoy life though. Ooh imagine that? A day trip to the coast, or a picnic in the countryside... I think I'll concentrate on that for the moment. I am smiling already!
