All day the sun has been shining with all its might. Not just a pale, watery sun such as we have caught a glimpse of now and again through the winter months, but a strong, bright sun. Our kitchen windows are large and they both face due West, so you can imagine that getting the tea tonight was quite difficult. The sun dazzled, and to make matters worse my specs have reactolight lenses, so that they went permanently into sunspecs mode. This meant that when I carried the tea tray into the back room by the woodburner, where we always have afternoon tea, where the window faces due North,
I couldn't see there either.
I feel thoroughly ashamed to be complaining about the glorious sun. I think it is because we are so unused to seeing it.
So welcome sunshine - a herald of Spring (we hope).
