It’s sunny (well, sometimes…) and warm (OK, +6 °C when these photos were taken, but at least it’s above zero…) and pleasant (apart from the wind, and the occasional sleet / hail shower…).
But it’s finally spring! No ice on the sea anymore! And (most of) the snow is gone! And soon everything will be blooming, and then it will be summer, and…
Let’s just say that winter is (finally) over. That’s good enough, for now. And to celebrate the imminent arrival of warmer spring weather (trying to be positive here), I’ve switched to a lighter jacket.
I know what you’re thinking: are all my jackets navy blue? And quilted? Well, no, and no. But most of them are. What can I say? Navy blue is the dominant colour in my wardrobe. That’s because it’s my version of a neutral: so much kinder to my pale face than black, and so much less blah than beige.
And quilted jackets… Well, now that I live one block from the seafront, I’m learning that the most important attribute of a coat or a jacket is that it is windproof. And as it’s only April, it can get a bit windy and stormy at times. Although whoever coined the phrase ‘April showers‘ probably wasn’t referring to sleet or snow…
It’s spring, and it’s getting warmer, and this pandemic will soon be over, and… OK, maybe not. But we can always hope, right?
