Ostara – the Spring Equinox, didn’t so much as roar in on Hay this morning, as float in on fat winglets of snow. Britain is having a very cold March with not much good news in the near future and all around me I can feel people grinning and bearing, grinning and bearing – I swear if we suddenly had one hot, sunny day the whole place would burst into song, mardi gras, fiesta!
But in the mean time we practise stiffening our frigid upper lips and wait..
And in the mean time I have no problem with eating my own body weight in chocolate to help usher the Spring in – isn’t that why we do it? Nom, nom..
Please lady, don’t make us wait much longer ..
Oh and for you Southern Hemispherians, particularly those of you in my home country of New Zealand – I wish you a happy Autumn Equinox and a long, drought busting soak 🙂
