Ah the spring that sprang in rather reluctantly the other week has decided it came too early and raced off again.  To be replaced by the most awful cold wintery conditions.  There hasn’t been a day this week when the central heating has not been turned on – something unheard of usually in my house.  I am careful with the heating costs.  I like to think that if I conserve my pennies at this time of year, I can whack it up when really needed in the winter!

I love it so much when the summer comes – I just like that freedom to get out in the garden, check out the borders, take tea on a lounger and generally get my hi dose of sunny vitamins.  I want to get the rays on my wonderful garden furniture and use the bar-b-que – all those wonderful happy things – talking of which, time to browse for more ideas!
