Sunshine in Bournemouth

Last weekend, it really felt like spring had begun early. I was in Bournemouth and there were people on the beach wearing shorts and t-shirts (very foolish people, but there none the less).

I also saw the first crocuses of the year, which is always worth recording. Almost as note-worthy as the first day you can leave the house without a coat on.

p.s. have you seen Handmade Jane’s post about our book-making adventure with John-Paul Flintoff? Check it out here! I have my own post planned as soon as I get round to finishing off my little book…

    I always have my mums voice nagging in my ear, not to get the summer wardrobe out too soon. One of the things that ensure you ‘catch a death’ apparently! I saw young girls in flip flops and shorts last weekend in London and thought the same! Gorgeous photos. Crocuses are such a beautiful symbol of Spring on its way…. we can but live in hope!

      Wow thanks Jane! It won’t let me comment on your blog right now for some reason, will try again tomorrow x

    Last week was lovely here in the north. I was in a summer dress and ballet flats. Sadly, today normal service has been resumed. It’s raining and cold and I’m wearing a cosy cardigan. 😦

      Pretty cloudy and rubbish here today as well. Can’t wait for spring to properly get here!

      From your lips to God’s ears! I miss the sun.
