Spring forward

I like a bit of rain, me - after all, hailing from the South Wales valleys, I am semi-amphibian. I must admit, though, that this Winter has been a bit of a long (and wet) haul. But now, at the tail end of March, it feels like Spring has finally sprung, the clocks have gone forward, the sun has been shining, and we've blown away the cobwebs in the great outdoors.

It's mother's day today, and the google doodle seems especially apposite as we've been out cycling the past two weekends.

It's been so lovely to get out on two wheels again. Last weekend saw us cycling along the Wales coast path through the Newport wetlands. Next weekend, we hope to try the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal. Hopefully sticking to the towpath rather than the waterway, obviously.

Hope you have been enjoying a bit of Springtime sunshine too!



  1. Happy Mother's Day! It's so lovely to have Spring here :-D

  2. I live only 25mins drive from the Newport Wetlands but I'm ashamed to say I can't remember ever visiting there. My parents are keen bird watchers and go there often.

  3. Oooh cycling! It's not QUITE been warm enough here yet, but it will be. It *will* be...
