Spring Fever...

Yum! Yum! Christmas roast!There're too many reasons to be sad or angry in this world, so here're reasons to be happy...
It’s officially Spring! This is undoubtedly the best time of year. Big fat bumblebees are buzzin'. Blossoms are bursting out on trees, and gardens soon become a mass of colour. Next month's roasts are gamboling in the fields. Temperatures reach into the twenties more than once a week and people get their pale limbs out for the sun. Everything just feels happier!
Daylight Saving begins in four weeks - longer evenings loom.
Christmas is just 17 weeks away. And although that's not always great news, everyone should find at least one reason why it's good, somewhere in that hedonistic list of food, presents, wine, beer, a break from work, summer holidays, sun, surf, beaches, concerts...
There’s a New Year in sight. That signals a new beginning - God knows the world needs one!
Asparagus is back in season. Yum!! New potatoes aren't far off. Sweetcorn, succulent lamb, berries, fresh herbs...the food variety just gets better. And cheaper. BBQs begin to earn their keep. The house gets aired out. Mates drop by for beers after work. Finally, the hibernation is over!
We live in a great country: I know that sounds cheesier than Chesdale Slices but sometimes I think we all need a little reminder.
