I woke up at 2.30a.m. and it was so quiet and light I just knew what would be outside. The weather forecasts were spot on.........
.........yes, more snow! I know snow in March isn't unusual in fact in April 1979 a couple of weeks before our wedding we got stuck in a snow storm in a van we'd hired to collect a second hand sofa we'd bought for our new home. It's just that this year winter seems to be going on forever and spring, which seemed so tantalisingly close a couple of weeks ago, has retreated into its colourful shell.
There's only one thing to be done on such a day. Stay in and make some tasty warm soup for lunch.
Carrot and Coriander? Lovely! The only downside is that I have no excuse not to start on that pile of ironing. Ah, well at least it will keep me warm!
