I went swimming for the first time in ages tonight with my friend. I forgotten how nice it is to walk and talk in the pool.

I woke up and was able to wiggle my toes! The sun is shining, the sky is blue and I have a husband I love and adore! It's a good, good day! :)

thou hast always been with me,
though we have been always apart." Man of LaMancha

I've decided I want to do an online course Spanish, there are a few on the net that are free, so I'm going to give it a go.

The discovery of a second-hand/newish bookstall in my local market. Seemed to do mainly romances and crime, but I picked up the latest James Patterson and "Gallows thief" for £1.99 each, so not a wasted visit!

After all the snow and ice, the first shoots of the the daffodils are out across Temple Newsam. One has to tip toe over them to avoid crushing them, and one day out of the blue, the whole meadow will be awash with them like a great golden flood! It's so lovely to see them beginning to appear, even amid the mud that has drenched the place for so many months :-) And the snowdrops are already here!

I went to a nature reserve last week to see the snowdrops, but we were a bit early as most of them still hadn't opened! But they still looked pretty though. The daffs are beginning to come out now so hopefully that will be a spectacular display in a few weeks' time.

Just spent a lovely two hours basking in sixty degree sunshine in one of the small natural clearings among my few acres of mountain laurel. As I kicked back in my folding camp chair with bare toes dangling over the footrest and with my iPod providing the musical portion of the lazy afternoon, I noticed a large hawk circling overhead catching a thermal. Those birds are so wonderful and such things of beauty. Then another one joined in and they got a little closer. I started getting a little bit worried. I wasn’t quite so sure they were hawks anymore. Just how relaxed and laid back did I look? I moved around a bit to convince them that I was still breathing. It worked.
