Luckily it's also that time of year when the sun finally lifts his little head and life seems a bit more bearable. (If you're not affected by winter's gloom, please tell the rest of us your secret. We could market this.)
Last weekend the Pullman steam train trekked through town - picture: Cruising on Beryl the townebike, with her basket & bell. Daffs in bloom (which Lila likes a wee bit too much…if you get my gist). The local parakeet clan flitting across the airwaves. Pullman's steam engine chugging along beside me and my girl. It seems all too picturesque after months of sitting indoors under a night sky that appears at 4pm.
Needless to say it's Spring! Roadtrips, weddings, & little surprises await...
Truth be told, the hubs and I are getting broody…for the four legged, hairy & fat-pawed variety. These long weekends are allowing us to visit a pup rescue set in Luton where a handsome blue boy is waiting for rescue. There's a lot of work involved, fingers crossed it all works out. Roadtrips abound:
April 1st may be a day for fools, but yesterday it was a day of celebration. Team ASOS Footwear (aka Team ASOS Dropout) reunited in the secluded postcard village of Finchingfield, Essex* for a bit of 1950's glamour meets 1980's dance party. Our little Amie looked stunning in her vintage lace wedding gown, hair twisted in a bun (said in a Northern accent), & her kilted new hubby in her arms.
Waiting for a star to fall...
*I only knew the significance of this town when we rounded the little green & pond in the town centre. You see, my parents drove me to the very same town a few years back so I could see where they had their first date. Small world, eh?
Speaking of mom & pops, look what showed up in the post this morning with a little note reading "I just wanted to say hello. Love Mom & Dad":
