Spring seems to have come early this year. Only last week I was enjoying my new (to me) wool coat and wearing scarves inside to keep my cold ridden neck warm. The last few days have seen me hurriedly unpacking some summer clothes in a rush before work because it's just too mild to be wearing jumpers and leggings. Not that a sudden arrival of spring is unusual for Melbourne. It will most likely be cold again. But the season has turned and I find myself standing around the backyard in my thongs (as in flip flops) at the end of the day, letting the fragrance of apricot blossoms drift over me while I talk on the phone and take pictures of the light (yes, all at the same time).
I'm planning to sort through all our clothes on the weekend, packing away winter woollies and seeing what we have for summer. Grace seems to have grown several centimetres overnight and I'm wondering what I'll be wearing to work if we have a sudden hot spell. Please let me be organised enough not to have to wear my maternity trousers with a safety pin and a long top. Not for the third summer in a row. Or the fourth, if you count the summer I was pregnant. Exhale. That's better. Now I'm starting to think about planting tomatoes and beans (even if we might not be here, because you never know and it's not that hard to throw some seeds in the ground), Christmas, a summer blog redesign and booking some holiday time by the beach. And maybe a short camping trip somewhere. Oh yes, roll on summer.
