Spring is now in full swing and everything is starting to bloom. I currently smell of baby oil for reasons that have nothing to do with babies – just trying something out and it might actually have some value. There really is something uplifting about the a bright spring afternoon – suddenly the winter seems so far behind and you try and persuade yourself that it has been banished for another year. Then the logical side says that it is still only March and such wishful thinking will only lead you to disappointment. Still can’t blame a boy from wishing – the older I get the less the cold and frost seems atrractive!
