New year, new life

Illustration of a baby boy in the womb by Hannah Foley (www.owlingabout.co.uk)The leaden skies and downpours have lifted this morning to reveal a bright and frosty landscape. It seems appropriate because yesterday evening I became an aunty for the first time! Well done to my wonderful sister who managed the whole thing in just four hours! Already I can feel the days starting to lengthen. We brought our hyacinth bulbs out of the cupboard and have arrayed them around the house to cheer January a little with their fragrance and their colour. I’m sure the rainclouds will descend again tomorrow (for all the storm victims we keep our fingers crossed that the worst has passed), but for this morning I catch a glimpse of spring and                                                                                  new life bursting forth.
