The clocks go forward next weekend which means one less hour in bed but it should also herald the start of spring. Nearly ten years ago my daughter was born and I was wearing a t-shirt and shorts it was so warm. In the days that followed her birth we were scared that she was going to overheat. The nursery room was well over the recommended temperature and she was sleeping in just a thin baby-gro with the window open.
The difference ten years makes...
This week Jersey had its worst weather since the 70's which may well have devastated the crop of Jersey Royal potatoes. In snowed today in Lincolnshire covering everything in a layer of white. Moreover there was so much snow in the South of England that people had to sleep in their cars or abandon them at the end of the road.
Where is spring?
