I walked home today for the first time since autumn - the sun set at 5.42 so I can make it home in daylight if I leave work before 5. The wattle is Canberra's first sign of spring, with the daffodils and the blossom close behind, and it is very lovely at the moment. So yellow, so very very yellow.
We had a nice social weekend with book club at my place, and out for afternoon tea for a friend's birthday. I went for my first run in three weeks which was just as slow and painful as I thought it was going to be. My fitness was so hard won, and that plague sucked it almost all away. I will try and recoup but it's going to be difficult now I have less time. But I will give it a go.
I didn't take this photo, the boys did. Number two son made chocolate lava biscuits for his school lunches (he shared some with book club, which was very kind of him) and was outraged that the 200 gram chocolate bar from Aldi was, in fact, only 142g. This photo might be evidence when he writes in and complains (this is something they learned from me. I am an excellent writer of complaint-letters, as my mother was before me). Luckily I had bought two bars...
And there was some sewing on the weekend too - now that the baby quilts have finished I can think about other things. I had an urge for scraps! a big scraps! So this is the start. It did feel good.
