The sun has got his hat on, Hip Hip Hip Hip Hooray :)

Oh yes we've had blue skies and a good hint of sunshine here in Suffolk today - still cold but not complaining.

I'll start with showing you my award from Catherine @ Kids & Capers;

I've not had one of these before but I think I need to past it on to others. Now this is the hardest part and tbh I could pass it on to all of you who read my blog and follow my blog and for all those that leave lovely comments. Or I could single out a few individuals - I started a list and when I got to 20 I gave up! Its too hard to single out just some of the blogs I read every day - I like different blogs for different reasons - some are crafty, some people have amazing homes, others have lives that are similar too mine and some blogs I follow coz its good to here from other mothers of all male families.

So for whatever reason I follow your blog, I'll pass on this award to you.

I said at the beginning we've had real sunshine here today, well it made me linger in the front garden for longer than normal when I returned home from town this morning.  I spent a little while having a look in the garden for signs of spring, I found;


A few daffodils poking their heads through the soil.
Blossom buds forming on my cherry tree :) - look at the colour of that sky!

I'd best be off - peace is about to be shattered as the boys will be in from school in a few minutes.

That's a nice sunshiney award!! We're spoilt for sunshine in Australia, with its sweltiering heat, of course, it's Summer!! I'm in Canberra & we get snow in Winter, so quickly do you forget one season to the next. Well done, love Posie

I was out in the garden today lifting soggy leaves to uncover shoots of spring bulbs. Its reassuring that despite the dreadful weather recently spring isn't that far away.

Lucky you having the first signs of spring appearing, it always such a welcome sight!

Our garden looks very dull at the moment, I can't wait for some colour to liven it up.

Warm wishes

Hiya hunni
Just popped over to say hi.
Congrats on the award.
I spotted a few of my spring bulbs poking there heads up through yesterday. unfortunatly they didn't last long the chickens dug them all up as soon as they spotted them. I replanted them fingers crossed they'll be ok lol.

I noticed the daffodil tips in our garden today for the first time too. I'm soooo looking forward to spring!
Sadly our skies are grey rather than blue at the moment.
