Last week saw a return of the white stuff. The usual chaos followed as schools were closed, flights were postponed and roads were unsafe.
Northern and Southern parts of the Country were the worst effected, but here in Telford and Stafford we barely saw a snowflake…
Now that’s out of the way and we have waved goodbye to dreaded January, we are welcoming February with open arms and thinking about Spring and Summer already!
We wouldn’t be British if we didn’t talk about the weather regularly, and most of us now have a weather App on our phones.
But as we know by now, the weather forecasters don’t always get it right. So despite some reports saying the cold freeze has only just started, temperatures are definitely up. So that’s at least one reason to start looking forward to the rest of the year!
What does 2019 have in store? Even though there’s no World Cup to look forward to, the Six Nations are already in full swing and one way or another we’re going to find out what will happen with Brexit…
Today is also the start of Chinese New Year and this year it’s the year of the pig.
Maybe now is the time to start thinking about summer holidays and weekend getaways. Planning your next break and filling up your calendar is a great way to look forward to the rest of the year.
