Spring has arrived! The frogs told me! In the middle of last night I woke to hear them singing loudly in our garden pond and this morning there was our first dollop of frogspawn for this year. I was beginning to wonder if there would be any at all as they are much later than usual, but obviously they have commonsense and were waiting for conditions to improve.
I have been going round the house turning radiators down today. Can it really be only two weeks ago that we called the boiler man out to check that it was running properly as we couldn't get warm?
Chaos and mayhem will reign next week and beyond as we are having the living room redecorated and then new carpet put down. We have too much 'stuff' and I wish we favoured minimalist decor - it would make life so much easier. I know it'll take me ages to find where I have put everything and get it back to where it belongs. The present carpet has been down for 25 years. The cost of the new one comes to about the same amount as the price of our first home! It doesn't do to have a good memory for some things.
