This post has been sitting in my drafts for about a couple of weeks now and I think I’ve just jinxed it. As I type this I can feel my hands cold, because we’ve switched off our central heating weeks ago.. after all it’s supposed to be Spring and it’s the second day of May for goodness sake! Who has their heating on in May???
Have I really jinxed this? All because I’ve left this in my draft for some time now? Apologies. Things have been a bit manic in my life lately. I’m busy trying to tick off a list that has been on for the longest time. But let me remind you what the weather was like about two weeks ago…
It was absolute bliss. I even managed to hang some laundry out. We haven’t done this since last year! And that to me is a win.
Is it sad that watching my laundry hung out to dry in a warm day like this make me happy? Does it? If you say to me “You need to get a life woman” My reply would be “But this is my life and I’m content and watching my laundry dry in the sun does make me happy. You ought to try it”. Small joys, you know.
Sitting on lounge chairs, with the sound of wind chimes being blown gently by the wind, watching my laundry dry in the sun and little T, sitting beside me eating her lunch with Doc sniffing around, hoping she’d drop a piece of bread, so he could snatch it, is what I call a perfect day to me.
Occasionally, you’d also hear the mooing of the cow in the nearby field and the distant sound of a tractor and the farmer’s dogs in the distance. I’m hoping someday little T will remember this day, of how she put on what she called a “show” for her mum while standing on her swing, which was really more like a monologue of what I would call “the ramblings of a seven-year-old” I really should’ve recorded it.
Even Doc seemed happy and content that day. Oh please bring back the warm days, we really don’t want to switch our heating on again.
What about you?
What’s the weather/temperature like on your side of the world?
