Spring put in a tentative appearance yesterday, and about time! The air felt warmer, the day seemed brighter – I was just beginning to feel the relief of having Winter well and truly behind me. And then storm Katie loomed and the news was filled with weather warnings. Headlines screamed of the havoc that storm Katie was about to wreak. Into the Easter weekend she blew, to put a damper on activities. But, like any good Brit, my reaction to quite a sever storm was to batten down the hatches (not that I have any hatches, and I’m running rather low on battens) make tea and ask it if it wouldn’t mind awfully being a bit quieter.
Random thought alert; is it just me or do the names of recent storms seem rather inadequate? I mean, storm ‘Katie’ – doesn’t this sound as if a small child named Katie is going to throw a bit of a tantrum? Just me?
Anyway, where was I? Ah yes, Spring, warmer air, brighter days. The temporary lack of rain and hint of sunshine was all the encouragement I needed to book lunch at a local restaurant. It’s a pretty relaxed place, so I reached for my geometric print cardigan and raspberry accessories. I’m not a massive fan of pink, but I love the way this in-your-face raspberry really lifts an otherwise fairly neutral outfit. I must admit, my hand did hover over a pair of black suede boots, but I think I made the right choice.
