I don't intend going anywhere today. The gate is firmly shut, the back door locked and the only weather I'm going to experience is throught the kitchen window. The kettle's on. there are chocolate cornflake cakes in my new Bridgewater tin and the heating is keeping that biting, vicious wind at bay. Only the jug of flowers in the kitchen window looks cheery and spring like.
The last few decorations are up, just Teenage Boy's egg to buy now.....not today though. I'm staying in by the fire
I might find time to begin this book. 'Mariana' by Monica Dickens, set around the time of WWII it has been compared to Dodie Smith's 'I capture the castle'.
Maybe I'll find something comforting to eat from these pages. One of my presents for Mothering Sunday. I hope you are warm and cosy where you are. What's the weather doing with you today?
