One post a month! At least it makes choose a title easy. I offer some images from March (incase you hadn't already guessed)...

I manage to glimpse some crocuses in bloom.

I picked some snowdrops to bring inside. The flowers don't last nearly as long as they do if left outside, however, it's nice to get a closer look at them and to appreciate their delicate scent.

Mother's day has been and gone, I was given a beautiful cupcake by A. She decorated it at her after-school club and was for once unable to claim it was for her to eat. My parents happened to be in the area on Mother's day and dropped in for a hastily arranged meal so much of the day was spent trying to get the house in some sort of order and making sure the parts beyond hope were well hidden.

I have a new camera. Another one. I just didn't like the photos I took with the previous one (it has already been claimed by A). I decided to spend a little more and have upgraded to a bridge camera. I still didn't splurge and have bought one towards the bottom end of the price range. It's a Fuji which is what my beloved compact was so I'm optimistic that we will get on. The sun was shining last weekend when I brought it home. Molly-the-cat was basking so she became my first subject. I now have a 40x zoom (as opposed to 5x) so expect lots of birds photos! I hoped to be able to get out and about this weekend to take some photos but it's raining and is set to continue to do so. So I made do with some woolly crochet shots. My sister in law sent me some bargain Noro yarn she found and I couldn't resist starting a project last night. Life seems to be returning a little to normal and I'm getting better at making a little more time for myself. I joined an orchestra a few weeks ago and it's good to be back playing my bass. The next thing I need to do is get back on the bike. But not in the cold and rain. Yet.

Anyway. I need to make a start on 29 pupil reports so I don't waste the holidays (two weeks off coming up very soon - fantastic!)

Have a great weekend, see you in April (I expect there will be far more than just a single post for April what with having new camera, time off work and the days being longer and brighter. All good!)
