It’s that miserable time of year where it is still Winter for another whole month (and if you are here the Highlands you know Winter will probably continue right on through until November).

It’s hard to remember the last time the lounge room wasn’t filled with washing trying to dry. I certainly don’t remember the last time the kids played outside and didn’t trek an acre of mud back inside. It has even been so moist that I discovered mushrooms growing on some architraves. Eeek!

Never ever have I wished for hot weather. The cold has been how I like it. But something has broken this year and I am desperately craving warmth. That said I reserve the right to totally complain in six months about how hot it is and how much I was wish it was Winter!
