March has not been a good month. In some ways it's raced by, in others it's dragged, but throughout it life seems to have been on hold, either due to my parents' ill health and the associated round of hospital and care home visiting, or the snow that's plaguing this spring. I feel I'd had such great plans for what I'd intended to do this year, and they're as squashed as the daffodils flattened by snow
But I'm not one to stay down for long. We've passed the equinox, the clocks do their forward leap this weekend, and schools have broken up for Easter, so, despite yet another troubled week, I think things are looking up and it's time for a new start.
I'm going to declare March a useless sort of month, put it behind me and start April early. There's a couple of days of sunny weather forecast, giving me a chance to get out and about, and I'm planning things for later in the month, so this pre-April week is starting well.
