Tonight I’m off work, I’m full of cold and it’s miserable!


Don’t you just hate it when one minute you are fine, the next you have been struck by a horrendous cold? And while it’s only a cold it stops you in your tracks and your get up and go has gone and your energy level is 0!


That’s how I feel right now.


This winter seems long and drawn out and I was starting to feel more and more eager for spring to arrive, I have loads of plans for the garden I haven’t got round to achieving yet and that excites me.
