I have been waiting for this day for what feels like an eternity. Days upon days of frozen fingers and chillbitten noses are soon to be banished as... it's the day last day of Winter! Whoop whoop!
I'm doing a proverbial dance of joy as I blissfully imagine beautiful Springtime scenes of cornflour skies, blossom adorned trees and that glorious warmth from the sun radiating off my shoulders. Can you tell I'm just a tad bit excited about it? No more fighting that depressing greyness that fogs over me during that bleh month of August. Bring on that sunshine baby.
Now, of course I'm a realist. I know that Winter will be fighting and scratching to hang on a little bit longer, but I'm giving it a couple of weeks to bugger off completely. I expect beautiful 25 degree days so I can spend them down the park with the Little Lion without freezing my arse off. Oh, and cracking out the running shorts instead of layers of tights, jumpers and gloves just to go for a simple run.
So, catchyalaterbye Winter. You can take a hike for a looooong time. It's time to retire the scarves and tights for another year!
