Dear Spring, Things are moving along nicely now and I’m really enjoying all the magnolia trees that are blossoming around here. I hope we don’t have a late frost which will ruin them.
Dear self, Get out there in the garden and cut back those shrubs that need to be cut back in the Spring.
Dear people, Why park under a sign that clearly tells you that only permit holders may park there at that time and then be surprised when the postman confirms that yes, it IS a controlled parking zone between 10.30am and 2.30pm? Also, why decide to park there anyway and get cross when you get a parking ticket? Why do some of you look annoyed when I helpfully tell you that between certain times it is permit holders only and that traffic wardens patrol the area with zeal during the restricted times? I am only trying to save you from a £70 fine.
Dear roads, It’s almost a pleasure to be driving round when you are so quiet due to it being the Easter break and you are not cluttered up with parents driving their little darlings to and from school (often a school which is well within walking distance!).
Dear April showers, Would it be possible for you to restrict yourselves to the evenings or, better still, overnight? You are really playing havoc with my plans to dry laundry outdoors. On the plus side, I am getting a bit of exercise running in and out of the house bringing the washing in and putting it out again.
Happy Friday everyone!
