Today is officially the first day of spring, and as much as I can't quite fathom that we are so far through the year already, it is lovely to have blue skies and sunshine outside. This week seems to have flown by, and I'm guessing next week will too, as I am counting down to our next scan on Thursday, followed by the long Easter weekend.
It has been a gentle week, walks with the dog, early nights, films and home-cooked meals. We have started making inroads into the bedroom which we hope to use as the nursery, and it has involved much clearing out and sorting through of paperwork. For me, there are years and years of university work, assessments, feedback, projects, and remnants from my first few years of work, most of which are being binned. It feels like the right time of year to be finally filtering through it all, the ultimate spring clean to be discarding so many papers from the past, especially with the promise of the future, and the hopes for what that room will become once we have created some space.
We spent this afternoon at a christening, our close friends had a service and a party for their little boy, and as it had also been his first birthday this week it was a double celebration. It was a lovely way to spend the day, and then this evening I had a nap in the afternoon sun, followed by dinner and a film with The Husband. And now, for an early night, and another exciting week ahead.
