Walk up this morning with the melody of ‘love is in the air’ stuck into my head.
Petit Tom is laughing out loud while we are dancing and turning around the sunny garden at a crazy pace….
Spring is in the air, la la la lalala laaaa…
I’m feeling like putting the sun on my plate today….
Yep, there’s no doubt: spring is only a couple of steps away and it feels so good.
