Solstice has passed, from here on out it’s more light, warmer weather and bring on summer. Okay, I may be getting a little bit ahead of myself there as we’ve still got most of winter to come but I’m glad to see our longest night has gone.
It’s an odd winter this year. Normally by this time I’m hating each day, moaning about getting up in the dark and getting home in the dark but for some reason it hasn’t hit me as hard this year. The winter blues seem to have been kept at bay for now. Maybe it’s all the nervous energy being spent on waiting for the twins to arrive that’s kept me distracted, or maybe it’s because I’m frantically busy with work that I haven’t noticed how glum the day outside is. Whatever the reason, it’s a pleasant change.
