Whenever it gets to the beginning of March, i want it to speed up so quickly. We are on that cusp of beautiful blossom trees, yellow rape seed oils and bluebells. It is my favourite time. Sitting in bed and counting the buds on the trees, waking up and seeing more and more leaves have bloomed over night. Watching the bird in the nest outside our house, sitting and waiting for the eggs to hatch. We then love to watch the mummy and daddy bird feed the baby. Last year, we were even lucky to watch the baby bird practice flying. The girls named the bird flower. And her mummy, Lily-May. To me, spring and summer is the most magical time. The adventures with the girls, the after school outings to the woods. Sitting under trees, eating our picnics until we realise it is late and we need to rush home for bath and bed time. Running through oil seed fields. Sitting on logs and sketching bluebells in our nature journals. Picking and pressing flowers.
We have all this to come, yet i feel so much in limbo. I am willing the trees to grow their leaves, i am wishing for the fields to bloom overnight in their colourful flowers. Waiting and waiting. I am so excited for those afternoons when i can pick the girls up and we can go and find new forests, new fields and new streams to explore. This year, i am going to make so many videos of the girls. Elle has discovered youtube as she watched my little pony and hello kitty on there and i have given her my log in to my channel and i often spy on her in the evenings, sitting in bed and watching the videos i have made of her and her sister over the years. She loves them and she has asked me to make so many more so that she can sit and watch them. She said that sometimes she feels like crying when watching them as they make her so happy. And little Mia, she sometimes asks her sister if she can sit and watch "the pink girl films" too. The pink fairies. That is what we call ourselves when out and about on adventures. Elle came up with it. "mama, our last name is pink and we are fairies so when the three of us are out together, let's be the pink fairies". I love it and last week, i said "shall we got out on a pink fairy adventure" and both of them were so excited.
There are so many wonderful days ahead of us. I am so just inpatient. This rain and the threaten of snow needs to go away now so we can really enjoy our days together.
