It may be overcast and the threat of rain may be ever-present but we can now officially announce that it’s spring. Apparently. And should hopefully mean the start of sunshine and short sleeves, though in all likeliness we’re looking at more snow more snow. Though we are really excited about a fresh start and the official lead up to summer, spring brings as much bad as it does good. So here are some of the best and worst things about the change in season. Carly-Ann Clements
We love that:
The days will get longer
Which means more sunshine
Making London look glorius
And sunshine + April showers
Getting up in the morning means less of this
And more of this
The grass is green
And the trees are in bloom
As are the flowers
You can cycle into work again
Which means it’s warm enough to say ‘goodbye winter coat’
‘And you, scarf’
And ‘hello sunglasses’
Icy drinks are back on the menu
And so is chocolate
But Easter’s not just about chocolate, it’s also about BANK HOLIDAYS
And the return of all wildlife
But most importantly, it means young love
And drinking outside
And the return of ‘Game of Thrones’
So, yeah. Spring seems pretty good… right?
Things we hate:
Daylight savings will steal an hour away from you
And all restaurants will remove the warm, stodgy foods
And replace them with salads
Seasonal cyclists are back on the road, which is… yeah
And the weather sends really mixed messages
And you never know when you’ll need a hat
Or an umbrella
All the shops have bright, colourful clothes
That you can’t wear because, you know…
But you don’t have any money anyway because you’ve just bought all your festival tickets
Which you won’t be able to use for three months!
And while you’re poor, you might as well spring clean, right?
Mainly to get rid of the bugs… all the bugs
But on top of all of that… it’s not summer
And that really sucks.
Happy spring everyone!
