"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Spring comes early

These were the views as I walked this morning. It was a lovely, sunny day, a light breeze and quite warm. Yes, I know it's not natural in early February and it won't last, but it's so much more pleasant than all the rain and wind of the past few weeks. Now, as long as we can avoid the snow, we're sorted.


  1. It's been lovely and warm here today, hope it lasts untill the weekend. Still wouldn't mind a foot of snow before winter is over ;-)


  2. Keep it your side of the Pennines then, Paul! :)

  3. We've got a foot of snow here in Mimico, Paul. Shall I send it your way?
    Green grass in Wales, Jenny. It looks so inviting!

  4. It is, Dale. Come on over and enjoy it!

  5. In recent days I have walked out in just a thin suit jacket - not my usual arctic adventurer fleece and "Where's Wally?" bobble hat. If this is global warming I want more!

  6. 'Where's Wally' bobble hat? I'd love to see a photo of that sight!

  7. Dad noticed today that some daffodils have already sprouted in the garden, Jenny. We estimate that they must have been growing for at least a week - coinciding with our victory over England in the rugby ! Surely just a coincidence......?
