I always spent much of January searching out a gift for him. He was a very difficult person to buy for as he had very few needs/wants. He was very content with his newspaper, garden, a few basic art materials and the tv.
So by the time his birthday arrived I used to feel relief that the present search was over, dark January days were done and amidst the birthday celebrations there always seemed to be a feeling of Spring!
He may be gone but I still think Feb 1st marks the beginnings of Spring. 😉 Madness, I know.
So we have primulas in the house....
And I bought a new cushion 😀
Snow is forecast for the end of the week so my Spring bubble may burst!
