I know that February is the shortest month of the year but so often it feels so long! It's Foggy February, February Fill-dike, and other dismal sayings abound.
|The Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa|
But this year has been different. I was brought up short yesterday by an email from Michigan telling me that the weather there was blustery cold, windy, snowy as usual. Here we've had the warmest February on record, definitely warm enough for taking my cuppa outside and sitting on the swing.
Some time ago I resolved to have some Jam Months, a time of Jam today, and leaving yesterday and today to their own devices, and February has been Jam Time again. I had a lovely break at Woodhall Spa, an experience which I shall definitely repeat.
|A tank at The Deep, Hull|
I visited The Deep, the marine aquarium at Hull. It was very busy with school parties and I'm not sure I will be repeating that experience any time soon. I had hoped for a quiet, meditative day but I shall have to seek peace and quiet somewhere else.
|Someone not to talk to at Normanby Park|
I went to Normanby Hall, my first visit there for a very long time. Maybe I shall try again in the summer.
I went to a book launch, seven lunches out, a WI meeting, Trefoil Guild and card making and had three competition wins.I've been busy with church activities and seemed to be well booked up for some time to come.
Not surprising that February flew past!
