By the beginning of June I was already over winter. The cold nights, the wet ground, the expensive gas bills(!), the fact that it’s still dark when it’s time to get up, and gets dark again so early in the evening. These are the things I don’t like about winter. Give me summer, autumn, or even hayfever-ey spring any day!

Getting up to my daughter when she wakes in the night is ten times worse in winter. And changing nappies is more of a chore as there are so many more layers to remove and replace.

Anyway, now that I’ve had my whinge, it’s time to move on… Only one more month till spring!
